9 Months Natural :-)

Hello! It's been 9 months since I big chopped :-) My hair has made progress and I love being natural but now I want more length. I think I'm at a point in my natural hair journey where my progress is at a stand still. It's grown and gotten thicker up to this point but now, It seems like it's just sitting there and could stay at this length forever. I know, realistically that it won't. My hair is growing and will get longer but it feels like it's just not right now. I'm also at a point where doing my hair is just not fun like it used to be. I take care of my hair and treat it right but right now, it's just a part of my routine and I don't get excited about it anymore. So this update isn't such an upbeat, cheery one but I just wanted y'all to know how my hair is doing and how I'm feeling about it right now. It's still healthy and it's not in a bad state but I just feel like it should be longer at 9 months post BC... And I would post a pic but it's then end of the week and it doesn't look so good right now lol. Tomorrow is my wash day and maybe after I deep condition, I will post pics :-)

Moisturizing & Sealing Combo

So I've had a particular moisturizer sitting around for a while. One that I decided I didn't like after having used it a few times. Now, yesterday, I went to moisturize my hair and I didn't want to use my regular one. So I was looking at my products to see what I have and I saw Sof 'n Free Gro Healthy Milk Protein & Olive Oil Strengthening Creme... Whew! I know, long name! But what I didn't like about the product the first few times I used it was the fact that it left my hair feeling wet. This was why I had stopped using it before. For a while now, I've been spritzing my hair with water before I moisturize. I figured out that my hair feels better this way and it retains the moisture better... So being that my hair is already damp after spritzing, I don't have to worry about my hair feeling wet from this moisturizer... Immediately after moisturizing, I realized what product I was going to use as my sealant. I went for my Zipporah Beauty Shea Avocado Hair Pomade. I love the texture of this stuff! Both of these products smell great and left my hair so very soft. I actually may skip moisturizing tonight 'cause my hair is that soft and moisturized :-)
