It feels like I havent been here in ages.  I applied for a full time regular 40 hr week with benefits job today.  It is in the courthouse where I am currently working.  It is posted internally until Jan 19. I didnt think that I qualifed for it cuz I am a contract employee, so when asked the lead person, she gave me the app.  I filled it out, and submitted it this afternoon Smiley   

Not much else going on.  That is nice too.  Gonna be a restin' this weekend, no plans.

Hair if doing fine too!

O'man,  I havent been here for about a week.  I have had a migraine headache since Sunday.  It is gone now, but I feel like I have a hangover.  My dr calls that a "migraine hangover."  It will be a day or two before I start feellin great again.

I have been trying to only wash my hair once a week, but now I am gonna go back to 2x cuz my scalp is going crazy.  It has been cold here so my hair takes all day to get dry.  I washed it at 830 this morning and it is still damp in some places   Sad.

Last Sunday nite, one of our ladies leaned over and said to my friend, " I think she (referring to me) should share some that (my hair) it was in a braid and my hair is very thick. Grin.  It made me feel better.  I am at the point where this is the longest my hair has gotten and I am not quite sure what to do about it.  Shocked.  I usually cut it at this point.  On we grow!  Lets see if I can continue.

Well, it really has been awhile since I was here.  2 weeks.  I have been going thru some stuff with my hair.  I dont know if it is cuz the skies are gray, or I am getting older, more gray is coming in, or maybe I am in need of some excitement.  I WANT TO DO SOMETHING TO MY HAIR!!!!!!  I have been thinking about a bright red color.  So it has to be the gray skies.  The only that is stopping me is the growout.  I,ve been there, done that, dont wanna do it again.  Unavoidable if I color, then stop.  My hairs length is 42+ inches and still growing.  I am still cutting a 1/2 inch off every 3 months.  S & D every other week.

I did a braid measurement today out of curiosity.  It measures 4 1/2" at the top, 3 3/4" in the middle, and 3" at the end.  Very little tapering which is what I am aiming for. 

I just thought, what about a cassia rinse? That would add shne without color, it might revve me up, without doing a lot of damage to my ends.  My ends are sooo healthy now, all that trimming and s & d, and just basic caring. 

Part of these feelings are also becuz I havent blown my hair dry on a daily basis for about 4 years now, nor has my hair seen the sun in about 3 years.  My hair is turnning darker as it grows and I am now 2 toned.  The gray is more obvious in the darker hair. The darker hair is to the top of my bra strap, very thick and healthy. 

I have found out also that some of my recent headaches are due to poor positioning of my updos.  My head actually is very small under all of this hair.  If I position the do wrong, even off just minutly, it starts to slip, and my neck automatically adjusts for the slipping, and I get a headache.  I have been braiding more, but I get tired of that too, as the braid can get into the way of seat adjustment thingy on my chair at work. It isnt "safe" to leave my hair down.  So, it is either up or in a braid.  Even then, my braid has to start in the middle of my head, cuz if it is off just a bit, I will get a headache.  What do I do??  O me, O my!!  What a dilemma. (wrings hands, paces back and forth).
I was sooo frustrated last week, I have considered SHAVING it off.  But then, winter is here and it is cold outside. 

On the up side, I managed to do my grandmothers braided bun the other day.  It made my hair heavier, but I resemble her moreso when I did my hair like hers.  Then I began to miss her.  She went on to her reward back in 1991.  My grandmother's hair was as thick as mine, and almost mid - thigh.  I am slmost there now.

Hi, Debr.  Yeah, the winter blahs can make you want to do crazy things!  This coming Wednesday I'm having cassia put on my hair.  I ordered mine from www.hennacaravan.com .   I buy my henna for mehndi from them and they are good people to do business with.

Han in there and remember, spring is less than 2 months away!!

Thanks Sakina,  There is growout with cassia/henna isnt there?  I am hanging in here, but----- my hair is really getting grey.  I noticed it yesterday.  I am not so blah now, the weather is changing, it is getting warmer.  I have decided to cut off an inch of length next month.  I have also decided that fingertip ( 42" on me) is long enuf.  I do believe that knee length is very pretty, and I have always wanted that length, but it is too hard for me to care for.  So, I am gonna maintain at fingertip until I decide otherwise.

That means I might decide at a later time to go to the knees. 

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago about applying for a postion in the clerks office.  Well, I got the "thank for applying, the position is filled letter" yesterday.  I was sooo disappointed  Cry.  I really wanted a chance to interview.  I am leaving it in God's hands.

Yep!!  Good day to be alive Smiley.  The sun is shining, albeit cold. 

I am going to try an experiment in the next few days.  I was reading an article on another hair care board that adding green tea (bagged) to condish, it will add a red shimmer to hair.  My hair color is pretty blah right now so perhaps this is something I can try without damage.  Maybe just a hint of color or shine could be all I need to get thru the winter blahs.  I also bought some hair, skin, and nails vitamins and I began taking them today.  So, I will see what happens next.

Didnt do the tea, it sounded like too much work.  I am craving shine in my hair.  I am considering doing something to it to get the shine.  I was kinda thinking about shaving it all off the other day.  Whew, I am glad I am past that now.  I bought a product called "Venetion Oil" at sallys tuesday, and I kinda like it.  No shine, but hair is real soft.  I could not read the print on the box (waaay tooo tiny) so I couldnt tell if it was cones or not.  Oh well, sometimes even a few cones is ok in my hair.  I STILL WANT SHINE!!!!  How can I get loads of shine without a lot of work??  HUH, tell me, tell me?? 

Hair is getting past fingertips so I am planning to cut off an inch next thursday.  Maybe that will help with my I gotta have shine mood.

You could try doing a colourless glaze. I've never used them before, so I have no idea how well they work or how long they last, but I've been curious about them.

Well, here we are again!  I did a 1 inch trim to the ends on the 5 of March.  Lookin good. I am currently maintaining at 42" until I decide what to do.  My ends do need to thicken up more and there is still some damage that needs to come off.   No color thingys done either as I dont know what I want  Roll Eyes.    Did a dusting in the sun wednesday and its been raining since then.

O'boy, I did a good thing today Smiley.  I ordered some Neem shampoo & condish for my hair today.  I had to order it from an Indian grocery store in another town cuz noone in my town carries anything but the norm.  It likes the oil, but the shampoo I use with it is causing my scalp to itch and flake.  It is not a differant brand of shampoo, but for some reason my scalp hates it.  Hair is looking good otherwise.  There is some damage to come off and with time and patience that will happen.  The weather here is definately of the spring variety, cant make up its mind  Roll Eyes

I am well otherwise.  Been praying for more hours at work.

Well, its now a new year.  I having been going thru some stuff so I havent been here, well, it looks like since May.  HHMMMM--, my hair is ok, It is now 44 inches in length and I am planning to maintain it there for a while.  At least until I can gain a bit more control over the rest of my life.  I havent taken the opportunity to read the board and play catch up with everyone.  I am letting you guys know I still here at least.  Take care,  Debr
