I'm so mad at myself! I ate waaay too much! Pizza, fries, wings, fried chicken, and toat (not all at the same time, of course) and i didnt even get a chance to work out (on my Wii Fit Plus, if that even counts) at all!

I'm so going to be paying for this for the next week.

Hair, introduction

The major point of this blog is my hair. So let's talk about it.

I've recently trimmed it, so its at my shoulders, a little bit above, maybe. It's not very thick at all, and one of my goals is to thicken it up before I get my locks put in.

On account of having various distant ethnic acestors, my hair is... frustrating. Straight above the ears, spiraled in the back, curlier dead center, wavy in the front, with an overall generality of kinkiness. Fun.


But it is interesting, and I love it. My "official" hiar type is probably something like 3c, 4a, and 3b.

Lately, I've been using Motions shampoo & conditioners, and I like the way it makes my hair feel. I've started to moisturize my scalp with olive oil, so hopefully my hair's in for a growth spurt. Ive also been using alot of heat styling, which I know is a "no no" but my hair doesn't respond well without it.

What's What

So, this is my first post.

The idea first came to me after spending several days scouring the internet for information on transitioning from relaxed to natural hair without chopping it all off (i dont have the bone stucture for short short hair) and getting sisterlocks.

Hopefully, this blog will share my experiences with both.

I'll write about how I'm managing my multi-textured hair, convincing my mother to let me get my locks put in, saving money, etc. My mother promised (and she's pretty good about keeping her word) that next summer I can get my sisterlocks done, as long as my grades stay on honor roll and i get my weight down. That's something I'll keep a record of too.

So here are my starting stats:
New Growth: ≈ 3/4 to 1 inch
Waist: 47.5 inches
Pants Size: 16
Shirt size: XL or XXL

I'll update those once a month, so you'll here about them on... August 29.
