The term "Cowashing" refers to using conditioner instead of shampoo to wash one's hair. Lots of shampoos contain harmful sulfataes to that rob hair of essential oils and sometimes we take too much from our hair not knowing and we don't put it back. Cowashing is a good way to clean your scalp of product build up while moisturizing as well. I cowash every 2-3 days and can go weeks without shampooing. This month I learned you should wash once a week with a sulfate free shampoo and once a month with a clarfying shampoo. The difference is the sulfate free shampoo will clean your hair and scalp and free it from dirt and oil build up but a clarifying shampoo cleans your scalp from product build up which can be the cause of why your regular hair regimen stops working as effectively.

How much is too much?

We live in a world where people share their lives wit everyone on the internet. There's Facebook, Twitter and blogging. It's ok to update the people you know on your life but how much is too much? There are women who are sucking penises in profile pictures, little girls sucking penis on camera in the daylight. When I was 12 I still thought you couldn't have sex without developing wrong. The world today is really something else but how much is too much? These kids know nothing. They're clones of each other and it's sad. As much as the internet makes the world smaller.

Root canals are a bitch

So I have three deep cavities in my mouth. One on the left and two on the right. Last year in May I went to the dentist and he told me I need to have root canals done on each of them. I said "ok." This man had the nerve to say "Ok so it's $250 each one not including the caps because your insurance only covers half." I just left because I'm a poor, sometimes employed college student. I can't afford to pay for them and for the past year it's been ok. I just avoid eating sweets and chewing on my hind teeth. The past week the nerves in my teeth must be exposed because I can't anything for shit. Not even an hour ago I got some relish stuck in the crevice in my tooth and it hurt like a bitch. LIKE A BITCH.

Hair Journey

Sometime in the year of 2011 I started to really pay attention to my hair. I noticed it grew rather fast but it stayed the same length. I started to wash it once a week and condition to see if that changed anything. I noticed that a difference in the moisture level of my hair but I still had a lot of breakage and split ends. During the duration of the year I did some research into how to take care of my hair. During the summer I neglected what I was learning for beauty and glamour and my hair got damaged from all the heat and all the weave. In the past two years I've only had two relaxers and after last summer I decided that relaxers aren't for me. I've been transitioning to natural since last summer and I'm going to my hair to waist length. I started monitoring my length in October after I tried to change my hair color and failed miserably because my hair is so dark. I started close to collar bone length and now I'm a little past my shoulders. This summer my goal is to have as close to boob length hair as possible. I take Hairfinity vitamins, I keep my body hydrated (water), and I protect my hair. I'll keep you guys posted on my journey.

Saturday Classes

Spring 2012 I decided to take an English class. It was the best decision of my life. I didn't take it because I needed to I took it because I wanted to knowing that it was on a Saturday. The first class I promised myself if I didn't like the teacher I would just drop it and find something else but I walked in and it was like the Professor Gods answered a prayer I didn't send up. Jimmy J Pack Jr. is the best English professor I've ever had, not a hard decision since I've only had two. Today was our last class and it made me sad but I don't want my writing to end there. I've been promising myself for years I was going to write an autobiography and I've also been putting it off well. Today I talked to him and I have my made up my mind. I shall have chapter one done by April 10th.
