Debr's hair fixations
Jun 25th, 2007 at 4:26pm
 
I am starting a journel for the first time.  This could be very cool.  I hope I am doing this in the right place.  If not, feel free to direct me.  My hair/scalp are having some unpleasant issues today.  I tried a cheap shampoo and my scalp is paying the price.  Psorsis is not happy  Cry.  I was wanting to go cheap cuz I hoping for excellent results, minimal price. 

I found out my dad turned his drivers license back to the state last week.  He has dementia, and was having trouble.  He was getting lost frequently, going down one-way streets the wrong way, and other things.  I felt sad cuz his being able to drive was a freedom for him.  Now, he has to depend on others.  This also means he getting older, and I have never viewed him as aging.  Maybe its harder for to accept that it is him.

Welcome to the world of journaling, Debr.  Wink

Sorry to hear about your father. Growing older can have some pretty unpleasant effects on a person's mind.

Sounds as if your hair could use some extra TLC. You should go out and get it exactly what it needs. The best care possible. Keep doing the overnight oil treatments and deep condition at least once a week. Hopefully you hair won't have suffered too much damage from the cheap stuff.  Shocked

Hi Debr:

Sorry to hear about your dad.  But I'm glad he decided to give up his license before someone was injured.

Take care,  Rebecca

Ahhh-day 2 in the life of my journel.  I think dad has pretty much accepted the fact he can no longer drive.  It is harder for me to accept that he is growing older  Sad

I did an s & d in the sun today.  The light makes it sooo much easier to see the split ends.  There werent very many this time.  I am guessing the constant care is starting to pay off.  My scalp is still driving me nuts tho, Yeah, tomarrow is wash day.  No, I am not gonna use the vo5.  I have put the porosity shampoo/condish back into the shower.  Lets see what happens now.  I have noticed tho that the left side of my hair is whiter than the right side.  I wonder why?  Its like only half of my head is graying at a time.  Weird!!!  If this graying pattern continues, I will be very strange to look at.

Journel entry time  Grin Grin. Ahhhh---much happier scalp now.  I went back to using the porosity yesterday. No itchy scalp today.  Evidently, I had been scratching in my sleep cuz there are some little scabs on my scalp and they hurt.  I know that in a day or two those will heal also.  My hair growing like crazy.  I noticed in the mirror this morning that it now covers the bottom of my t-shirt again. I am hoping to be back to panty-line length by the end of August.  I cant wait to measure again.  According the morroco method, I will be doing another cut on or about the 24th of Sept.  I have been being a little wishy-washy with myself as to how much I plan to take off.  But I think it will still be only an 1/2 inch. The ends and general body are very healthy now and really dont need much taken off.

The weather is dysfunctional here and  I have a sinus headache today.  I wish it would either rain or sun.  Debr

Hi, Debr.  Congratulations on your new journal!

Sorry about your dad.  My grandma had a doctor tell her they were revoking her license-she was hoppin' mad about it.  She has Alzheimers (sp?) and that means she refuses to acknowledge she is having mental problems.  Its good he accepted this new development so quickly.

I hope your sinus headache goes away quick!  I hate having those, I usually have to sleep them off.

Hi Sakina, thanks.  Dad didnt willingly do this.  It has taken him almost a year to confront his problem.  Until he acquired some other issues hearing loss, aging eyesight, prostrate cancer, etc.  He wasnt willing to accept his dementia.  Now it is all kinda coming at him at once  Shocked.  Dad is going to be 78 in Sept, I know there are people older than he is still driving, but his driving skills were going down hill rapidly.  I am glad for his sake he is off the road.

Sinus pressure is going away now.  Probably by tomarrow headache will be all gone.

Journel entry #4,  Because my scalp is flaking and itching (psorsis)  Cry, i decided to oil/wash again today.  I have been trying wash only 2X a week, but it wasnt working for my scalp.  I think my scalp likes this process better.  I dont seem to have as many itchy areas today.  Used Last Call shampoo/condish this time with an ACV rinse after the shampoo.  My hairs length seems to be acting kinda weird, must be the humidity in the air.  I am curly, wavy, straight, but no frizz today.  O Well.

Journel entry #5,  Boy was I sick yesterday  Cry.   My sinus headached returned in full force and went to migraine level including vomiting.  I woke up at 3am w/the headache, then at 5am, I started the vomiting routine.  Missed church yesterday morning but went last nite.  Probably shouldnt have as the the lites really bothered my eyes, so several times I closed my eyes and held my head during the service.  Pastor Johnson and members of the congregation prayed for me and I slept well last nite and I am much better today  Grin

Scalp is finally better today also.   Oiled Sat nite and did the regular routing Sunday afternoon.  Going back and forth w/the idea of "to poo, or not poo" that is the question.  So on we go.

Journel entry #6,  I applied for a new job and also took  a clerical test.  It is for some banking positions I found in the local newspaper.  Have to do and updated resume by thursday  Smiley.  I wouldnt mind working in a bank at all. 

I am also having a good hair day as it is close to 90 outside so my hair is in a bun today.  Actually I achieved a messy bun without trying.  Just thru it up and hoped for the best  Grin

Entry #7,  Happy July 4th!!!!!  Grin.  Everything hair is doing nicely today.  I made a mistake last nite.  I accidently combined one of my best shampoos with my best conditioner.  I am not sure how I managed to do that  Embarrassed.  So, I just decided it could become a 2 n 1, and this morning I used it to see if it would work that way.  Did the ususal routine, and my hair nor scalp are finding any problems with it.  I did notice tho the ends needed to be oiled as they were a little drier.  So, I put some evoo on my hand, rubbed them together, then applied it to ends only.  So far, so good  Grin.

Journel entry #8.  Well tomarrow will be wedding bells for the son of my pastor.  He is getting married in Portland so---a friend  and I going to ride together, do lunch, and the wedding/reception.  Should be fun for all.

Mom measured my hair on the 4th and it came to 39inches.  I have started trimming by the Morrocco Method.  I am still not sure this method has any effect on the cutting/growth of my hair.  But I have gained 2 inches in 1 month.  I am going to continue with this at least for the rest of the summer.  I am planning the next 1/2 trim for the 24/25th of Sept.  So I will know then if this works.  My hair grows an inch a month anyway.  It is already hot this morning so my hair is already up.  YUCK!!!  I have decided to stick w/mom measuring my hair each month cuz I think she is more accurate.

Journel Entry #9.  I am feeling overwhelmed today.  Lots of emotion  Cry.  Dad is getting worse very quickly.  My brother, Praise God for a brother who has the ability to deal with financial matters, is taking over the financial stuff for dad.  Van is helping dad put his house up for sale.  The house is the home where all of us kids grew up so there is emotional attachment for Van too.  This is really getting hard.  Dad seems to be withdrawing into hisself, while my mom on the other hand is getting beligerant.  She seems to think dad owes her a living even tho they have been divorced for about 30yrs.  Praise God I can turn Him cuz I am not sure how long I culd last b4 I wuld be committed to the looney bin.  Dad keeps telling Van he only has about a year to live.  Van and I dont know where is getting this idea. 

I had to give up a job offer today also.  I just dont have the finances to get a CDL attachment to my drivers license or get my finger printing done.  So, I had to withdraw my application.  I know God is going to provide, everything just seems to piling up right now  Cry.

All I can offer is a hug, but I know, as you said, that He will provide as long as you don't lose faith.
