Okay, maybe I need to lay off of the measuring for awhile because the inconsistency is making me crazy.  I measured again today out of disbelief of my last measurement of 24 1/4", and this time I got 24 3/4" and then right after 25". Undecided I'm thinking that maybe my hair was a little poofier the last time (since I didn't flat iron) which made it seem shorter but even now, my measurements aren't consistent.  I am confident though that now my hair is at least 24 3/4" which is good. Smiley

Yesterday, I mixed up my beloved coconut oil with 1 part saflower oil, I'm estimating maybe 1/4c of hair serum and 1tsp of vanilla extract.  After I apply it, I use my vanilla hair spritzer stuff and my hair seems to really like it. It's soft but not oily, and it smells good.  I'm just waiting to see how long it takes for my hair to get crunchy from the serum build up, or if it even gets crunchy at all before my next wash.

Hey there!   Cheesy  Nice to "meet" ya! 
About the measuring deal...When I started growing out my hair last year, I was measuring faithfully every month.  I had a chart all made out and recorded the numbers...all that crap.  Well, before long, I got so hung up on the numbers (my hair didn't grow half an inch this month--*gasp*  how come?!), that I started stressing over it.  I was focusing on the wrong thing, instead of simply trying to take care of my hair and letting it do its thang.   Smiley  Now I measure infrequently.  Maybe every 3 months or so.  Anyway, just wanted to finally drop in and say howdy, and let you know you're not alone in the "measuring makes me crazy" club.   Grin  Take care!

Nice to "meet" you too Trisha!!!  Smiley  Thanks for letting me know that it's not just me thats getting a bit unnerved by the measuring.  You're right, the health of our hair is definitely more important than the length. I'm just so anxious for length RIGHT NOW!!! Grin But, I'll definitely focus more on whats important, and in the meantime...my hair will grow. Wink  And yeah, I was actually thinking that spacing out my measuring every three months would be a better idea.

I'm so sorry your new neighbors are causing  you so much stress.  Hopefully you can get out of your lease without penalty.  But in the meantime.... Cool

Since they are up so late, making noise, you can assume they like to sleep in.  But wait... isn't that when you vaccuum?  Wink  and do other LOUD cleaning chores?  If you have your washer/dryer in the hallway near them, you could wash and dry your tennis shoes..... early in the morning.   Maybe you could take up the drums and practice in the morning?

But more seriously (however everything I've mentioned HAS been done - and was quite effective, I might add), if your landlord doesn't do anything about the noise, how about the police?  It sounds like they are disturbing the peace.  A knock on the door by the local authorities just might be what it will take to get them to realize they are not living alone in the country.

I hope you can get this resolved in some manner soon.

Wow!  That really sucks.  I like BB's suggestions.

What a horrible intrusion on your life.  That sure would make me mad as hell, especially becuase the management won't do anything about it.

Add alcohol and get instant a**holes.  I would respond like you do, try to suck it up and be the better person.  However, you have rights and they don't have any more rights than you do.

I think moving is a good idea-it is empowering to take action that will benefit you in the long run.

I hope you find a new apartment of your dreams with awesome, kind, likeminded neighbors.  Your soon to be old neighbors will probably burn the place down.  If that happens, will you let me know?  Thanks!

I just did a nice relaxing hair wash and 20 minute deep condition under a hood dryer, and I had great results without ANY assistance from my blow dryer Shocked  I've finally decided to totally give it up.  I felt that as long as it was on the low setting and that I didn't use it to get my hair completely dry, that it was okay.  

Tonight after my wash, I decided to comb my hair out, and then let it air dry in two plaits.  I used serum to help the comb glide through my hair while detangling, and I noticed that when I was done I hardly had any breakage.  Usually, when I "blowdamp" I get a lot of breakage on the ends which I'd just chalk up to me needing to deep condtion more.  I had no idea the blowdryer ON LOW HEAT, was contributing to my breakage.  Well, now that I know,I'm done with it.

Also, I took a look in my bathroom cupboard and found some Fructis Long and Strong.  I purchased it last year used it once and into the cupboard it went.  I realized after it began to dry that the reason I stopped using it was because it makes my hair feel a little stiff but, I solved that problem by applying this hair lotion stuff that I have right on top of it and it was fine. I'm planning on using the Long and Strong after every wash from now on hoping that this stuff will live up to it's name, for all I know it all ready has, maybe it was the reason that I didn't have so much breakage.  At any rate, I'm still done with the dryer though, because I've come to realize that I can live without it so I will. Smiley

Oh, and I've also realized that I don't like the Pantene Ice Shine.  After I washed I noticed that my hair wasn't as soft as it usually is so I did another wash using my Kerastase Nutritive shampoo and that made a world of difference so, I'm done with it too.

Good job not using the blowfryer anymore! Those things are awful! Well, for hair, at least! They're great for drying paint or glue, or warming up a bed in the winter!  Grin

It's been 2 days since my wash without my blow dryer and I still like my hair and it's actually much better than it usually is.  

I LOVE curly hair so, from time to time, I'd use hot rollers to achieve a curly style, I know really bad.  Well, since I let my hair dry in plaits this time POOF!!! Instant curls!!! Smiley  AND I didn't use any heat!! Wink  I used to dry in plaits years ago but, since I did so many plaits, I simply got lazy and stopped doing it.  It's so easy to only do two plaits (as long as I get the part straight) and everynight I've been adding a moisturinzing lotion, my coconut oil/safflower oil/serum mix and replaiting before bed and when I wake up, it's so nice!!! Smiley  I don't know why all of my pics are blurry nowdays. Sad
