    Revelation: To swim every day you have be so OVER hair. I'm definately over it. Wearing a puff for nearly two years now, I've easily lost half my length. ***shrugs***

    Every time I think about doing something different with my hair, I have to remember that having different hair styles like I used to do is not compatible with swimming.

    And I'm not giving that up...ever. I realize that swimming is more important to me than having mega long hair.

    If given a choice between long hair and swimming, I'd wear a twa.

    I have thought about it. And that thought keeps creeping into my mind.

    My mom would not be happy, lol.

    I haven't cut my hair yet because I need to replace the hair shears I lost (your post actually reminded me to look for some while I'm running errands today). Incorporating tea into my regimen is has helped with the shedding but I'm still chopping before the end of the month.

    Sorry to hear Anemia is doing your hair a number. I directly know that feel. That Venofer treatment *really* helped me. There are potentially serious side-effects so its not for everyone but you may want to ask your Dr about it.

    I hear you...

    One of the reasons why I cut my hair was so that I could wet it whenever I wanted (including swimming) and not worry (too much) about it. I realized my hair has a WNG length limit and although I probably could have texturized it and continued doing WNGs I didn't want to go back to using any kind of chemicals. I wouldn't say I'm 100 percent over hair but I'm definitely over LONG hair.

    Kinda-sorta related: I was at the mechanic's yesterday paying more $$ to keep my car running and while waiting I got to watch several episodes of Law and Order SVU. Unlike a lot of people I never really got into any of these shows but what I kept noticing was how cute Mariska Hargitay's short haircut looked. When air-dried, mine is a nappy version of hers, lol. Short hair is SO much easier in so many ways. I don't want to get you in trouble with your mama though...

    It's been years since I've used a moisturizer in my hair, and it makes a difference. Don't ever let anyone fool you into thinking that oil is enough!

    Also, when shopping, patience is important.

    Long story short, I bought my moisturizer at one store because I thought it was the only item for natural hair that I'd be able to find for miles. (In spite of online shopping, to me, there's something about knowing you can purchase a product in person.) My area is really non-diverse. I figured it wouldn't be worth it to look around.

    It was only after I made that purchase that I learned my local Sally's sells products for Black hair, including those for naturals. I was over the moon!!

    So, I have the forbidden hair style now.

    Micro braids aka ty zillions.

    This is going to be a good protective style for me, because I'm going to maintain it, just like I maintain regular braids. I'm going to stay on top of my edges, and keep them fresh. No pulling back tightly. Co-washing and moisturizing.

    I didn't do them myself. It felt good not to spend 3-4 days on my hair. It was complete in 6 hours.

    I'm debating on doing maintenance myself, or getting it done by someone. I love how they parted my hair, so I would just redo sections, 1 braid at a time to keep the parts.

    I'll be getting the wet and wavy hair with highlights for next time. So far, my hair has been done 4 days.

    I like it. It's full; they're very small in the front, but slightly bigger in back, and not too bulky.
