Super Shed and Wed

Well ladies, it's happened. Mr. Perfect and I are going to jump ye old broom. I'm sorry that I've swept him under the rug for so long, but I didn't know what would happen. But now I'm sure and so secure. He was just too good to be true. I had to get that out of my head though. I'm just lightheaded over the whole thing. Couldn't be any happier that if I weighed 10 pounds less. I'm getting married! OMG! It sounds so weird. I'm going to be happy. I know that.

My family isn't aware of him at all. Only my cousin really knows. And my best friend. And we've all decided that we aren't going to utter butter until the day he gets home and it's too late for anybody to say anything. I swear. I'm going to pull a JLo and Marc Anthony. People will think they're showing up for a barbeque or something, and it'll be a wedding! LOL. Seriously, I wish. But then I wouldn't get any wedding gifts, and registries would be obsolete.

Well, I guess I could say a little about him. He's Israeli. He has the most beautiful eyes. I just stare at him all the time. I can't help it. Talk about hypnotized! He's tall. dark hair...Oh hell. I'll post a picture. LOL. He's just perfect. I don't know how else to say it. I love everything about him. His voice is like cashmere and I just...It's hard to say

It's a miracle that we even got this far considering that both our families are going to die over this whole color/religion thing. I told him I wanted to wait until the last minute to tell my family. That way they can't even try to talk me out of it or anything. And he has the task of telling his eventually. He already told his sister. She had nothing to say really. And I consider that I sign.

There have been no kind of "relations" whatsoever. I've been celibate for nearly 4 years now. And I have done so to make sure that I could save a part of myself for someone that loves me. So there is no need for casual sex. It means nothing to me. I want something special and lasting before I even consider. And now it has come along. It's gonna be out of this world. :P

I guess I should talk about the super shed part of this blog now. LOL. I'm having some massive shed. I thought it had slowed down. But it seems to have picked up again. I swear it has something to do with my botched relaxer last month. I could be wrong. Maybe it's the weather. I don't know. LOL. My hair doesn't seem to be doing worse though. It 's soft and moisturized. The moisture has been so up. And I've been avoiding the elements quite often. And it's shiny and with body and volume. I could just be trippin' for no reason. Or it could just be healthy winter shedding. We'll see. Maybe some protein will help...

Moisture Up!

So I'm sure that everybody is aware of the disaster that occurred a few weeks ago when I go my relaxer. My hair was severely dry and just horrible. But I'd like to announce that I am back in the saddle again. I've been moisturizing like crazy. As well as using my daily moisturizer, I would follow behind it with a leave on conditioner. Then I seal with oil. I do this by separating the hair into 8 parts. That way I got better coverage. And thank goodness. LOL. The dryness patches are gone.

This past Saturday, I took my hair to my ultimate moisture boot camp. LOL. I started Friday night. I moisturized with my Wave Nouveau as usual. But when I went to seal, I covered the length of the hair with Dabur Amla Oil. I used about 2 teaspoons for my entire head which is the maximum usage recommendation. I covered my hair with a plastic cap and let it sit on until the following evening. It sounds extreme, but it worked. I guarantee it.

Before I washed my hair, I did a deep pre poo as well. (I've been using this in the place of deep conditioning after washing.) It was Queen Helene Cholesterol (my fave base for tons of homemade concoctions), amla oil, coconut oil, tea tree oil, and honey. I let this sit on my hair for almost two hours as I went about cleaning the house and whatnot. When I rinsed, it was like heaven. My hair was virtually tangle free. I following this up with a my TreSemme Smooth and Silky. After this, I added my Neutrogena Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner. Great slip and moisturizing.

I rollerset my hair Saturday night. Of course I put on my favorite leave ins and sealed with coconut oil. No setting lotion though. I didn't use any heat. I just let it dry over night with my satin night cap on. And it turned out beautiful. The curls were bouncy a shiny. My moiture levels were through the roof. I loved it. I even wore my ahir down today. Something I won't be doing for a long time. I enjoyed it so. And I could feel my clean scalp as a gentle breeze blew.

I just got through moisurizing with my Wave Nouveau and Pantene Silk Transformation Creme. Then I sealed with coconut oil. And my hair is still gorgeous. It's silky smooth and soft to the touch. I had to bun it and cover though. But at least I know that my hair is back on track. I don't see any splits. And with the slight dusting I did a few days ago, I'm sure that I may have gotten any little splits that may have popped up recently.

I'm so glad that things are working out for my hair. I will admit that shedding is bugging me a little bit. But it's long strands with white bulbs. That's healthy. I'm just glad that I'm back in the sweing of things. The Bee Mine has come back into use as well. So now my full regimen is being used again. Yay! It's good to be hair home. LOL
