Neem oil is fabulous.  I put it in my wet hair after shampooing yesterday, and viola! no dry hair anywhere.  Not even my ends or my little dry frizzy place!!  I think I am in love with this stuff.  It doesnt leave my hair greasy either.  I am going to put it in tonite and sleep with it, wash in the morning to see how my hair likes that routine.  Who knows, this may be it.  Scalp is still itchy tho, so I may have to break the bank and get the shampoo/condish.  I will know more tomarrow after nite oiling.

I am considering a new experiment for fall  Grin.  What if I only measure and trim every 3 months.  I am thinking of trimming perhaps 1/4 inch off every 3 months.  I lack 4 inchs of reaching one of my two goals.  After reaching this 1st one, I will then consider growing on.  A test time of whether I like the new length and I am confortable with it.  If so, then I will continue to my final goal.  I could leave it at this length for the summer.

If I do it this way, I will meet the 1st goal by late spring, early summer.  I grow 3/4 inch per month.  Starting length is 40 1/2 inches, as of Oct 1 2008.  Experiment end date would be May 1, 2009.  Ending measurement goal would be 44 inches. 

Trim dates: how about I use the morrocco method and use the 4 dates given for hair beauty?  That sounds like a good idea, and it would be something I can do easily.   Smiley.

What if I stall?  Then I stall.  But----how do I tell if I hit terminal?

WOW!!  I havent been here for a few days.  I dont have aniything to say.  I have been alternating btwn Neem oil and olive oil on my hair.  I took the eyedropper idea from the Neem and I put 1 drop of evoo in my hand, rub hands together and apply to ends 1st, then another drop, rub hands together and apply to length.  I do this to my whole length.  Its working better than ANYTHING else I have ever done.  I am happy with this routine so far.

WOW!!!  I still dont have anything to say  Shocked.  I am usually soooo opinionated this is quite refreshing.  Still doing the alternate of Neem oil and olive oil for ends/length and that is working very well.  Havent quite decided on my hair's length.  I am trying to decide if the the length now is good for me or should I continue to let it grow and just see how far it will get. 

The sherriffs office called my personal references today, so now I am waiting for the final step and that should go well, then I will have to wait for the start date. 

I just LOVE this time of year.  A nip of winter in the air, some gently falling rain, leaves turning bright, vivid colors.  Aww, fall is glorious!!

Indecision on the length for your hair? Shocked  LOL - that's how I ended up with my length!  I couldn't decide when to cut it, so I just never cut.   Grin

Hi Angel Spun,  I am in the Pacific NW.  Still raining here, and has been for the last 3 days.  Typical fall weather.

Yes, BB, I am still soooo undecided about the hair's length, I think I too will just let it go until I can decide to trim or not.  I am still planning (maiybe)   Roll Eyes  to be doing a trim about mid December tho.

My hair is rather greasy today, it is need of washing.  I have been wearing it up or braided here lately.  My braids have actually improved so much that I am no longer embarrassed to wear them in public.  Nite braiding has been helping me to learn to braid better.  I can still only do 1 kind of updo (bun) but that is ok.  My hair gets soo heavy after a while of being up that I have to be able to let it down then do it back up.

My friend Mel cut 9 inches off of her hair the other day, man does it looook good.  She had some nasty looking ends and couldnt decide if to cut it all off, or just some, or maybe add some layers.  I talked her into just cutting the ends, living with that for a bit, then make another decision on next cut.  I told how I do it and she was able to follow my instructions, and her hair looks gorgeous now.  Her original length was fingertip, now it is classic.  As far as I could tell, all the splits and frizz is gone  Grin.

Mel decided to take off another inch and she MESSED up the hemline.  It is off by an inch and she is scared to try and fix it  Shocked.  I didnt offer to help her cuz I am afraid to cut others hair.  I was able to make some suggestions tho and hopefully she was able to correct the mistake.  If not, she said she would be wearing it up for a very long time.

I have noticed that my hair is getting thicker.  A lot less breakage and splits since I have been using the Neem oil/Ollive oil combo.  I think my length and ends like a lot of oil and they bask in attention  Roll Eyes.

Did an S&D in the sunlight today.   There were hardly any splits.  My ends are looking good also.  The only thing I think I can contribute to this is well----a couple things, is oiling, braiding/bunning consistenly and watching out for my hair when it is loose (where it goes, what is around it).  The ends/length feels very nice and it seems to be laying better.  It is taking longer to dry but that might be weather related too.  It is feeling thicker in general also.  Perhaps because of the constant oil/restraing there is less breakage.  I did a measurement today out of curiosity and its a growing. 

Got the job at the sherrifs office and I am starting sometime soon.  The transfer paperwork was begun last friday and when the officer I will be working for returns from vacation, then we'll complete the paperwork.

Tried a catnip tea rinse last saturday, forgot an important step!  Huh.  That step being to rinse.  Well, my hair has knotty and sticky alllll week.  I am gonna waah in the morning.  Did a major s & d in the sunlight and got quite a few splits off.  The catnip tea rinse is supposse to help with split ends and too make the hair length stronger over a period of time (useae).  Tomarrow, I plan to follow the instruction right down the line.  Step by step.  Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.

Hmmm---I noticed some typos in my last post, maybe I should not try to type without my glasses on!  Embarrassed  Grin.  I had a nice thanksgiving.  My brother bought my mom and mine's dinner, then I went to see my dad.  His focus for the the day was on death.  Ummm--I am not sure if my dad will be around next year  Cry.  He was looking quite frail and cant stay warm enuf.  It was kinda hard to follow his line of conversation, but I did the best I could.  He couldnt understand why my grandmother (his mother) and my 2 aunts (his sisters) havent seen him lately. They have been gone for 10+ years now.  He doesnt remember  Cry.   

It has been sooo hard to go thru this, my dad was always so strong, able, and fun loving.  I miss my dad  Cry Cry.
