Messed Up Tresses

Today is a hair day… mostly cause my (hopefully one day sista-in-law) was texting me.. regarding a much needed hair change.

I have always been a sucker for chopping my hair… dying it, highlighting it, cutting bangs… then wondering:

“WHY WON’T MY HAIR GROW….!!!!????”

Hilarious joke quote. For the funniest quotes and short jokes visit

Hmmm I don’t know… is it from the scissors… the bleach… the blow drying… the flat iron… not taking your vitamins… you pick!

I have finally decided to hold back the urge for drastic changes & just let is grooowww.

I am proud to say I have not done anything to my hair since January 30… & can you believe it!? Its actually growing!! Yippeee!

Here are a few things I have been working on:

1) Not to getting highlights… my hair bleaches in the sun well enough.. I don’t need to add the chemicals too! (Right… maybe one streak…?)

2) Let your hair AIR DRY! With my hair getting some weight to it I find I don’t have to blow dry it all the time, as it doesn’t get that one wave that looks like you just took out your 10 hour ponytail. Just go out in the wind… & rock it…;)

3) Less Flat Iron… to No Flat Iron… this extreme heat can totally damage your hair! I know its hard.. especially once getting in the habit of using it.. But I have been trying not to use it so much.

4) Condition… I have a leave in conditioner that I try to put in at night, when I know I will be washing my hair in the morning. I’m really not sure how well it is working.. but my ends have held up a lot better then they usually do.

5) Don’t Back Comb… unless its a VERY fancy occasion… I LOVE back combing my fine hair into a Huge Beautiful Do! Anyway.. It causes hair to break… Not grow.. unfortunately!

The bigger then hair the closer to God… am I right Ladies!?

Not Me… haha

These five things have been making a difference in my hair care… The other day I was thinking I needed a change… I needed a trim or a colour or a hack job! But I held it off… then today was a totally different story.. I swear it grew & tamed itself over night.. as I absolutely love it!

Here is a blog I find that gave me some extra tips for growing my hair… She has LONG BEAUTIFUL hair.. so I have full faith in that her direction is a good one.

  1. Hey Girl! I’ve recently added a highlights to my tresses, which is something I haven’t done in literally like 10 years! It wasn’t what I went into the salon for, or what I asked for, but they’re really growing on me. I asked my stylist to “brighten me up” and “give my hair some dimension” which apparently means “huge chunks of blonde” in stylish language!

    It’s not too bad actually – just very different from what I’m used to. I have to pay attention where I part now, where as for years before I had a solid color and didn’t have to worry about weird lines or highlights going the wrong way.

    It’s brighter, I just have to watch that the REALLY blonde pieces don’t turn brassy – good ol’ well water!

    Personally I’m not a huge fan of Moroccan oil, but I have really heavy hair as it is, that tends to be oily. I know tons of people who swear by it, it’s just not for me. I’ve recently gone back to an old faithful set of hair products that I used to use as a kid:

    Mane n’ Tail by Broken Arrow

    It’s really great with my heavy, thick hair. It doesn’t weigh it down, and gives me volume in the right places. I remember when I was a kid I’d use the same bottle on my 4H calves as I did in the shower, so it really makes me laugh now. Also, I’ve price checked it between Safeway and trusty UFA, and it’s substantially cheaper at UFA! Gives me an excuse to spend a few minutes there every six weeks scouting for single farmers 🙂

    Thanks again for another trusty blog!
