Journel entry #17.  I went to dad's 78th birthday party last nite.  He was doing well  Smiley.  I dont know if it was the party, or perhaps the presence of his kids (the 3 of us) or maybe some new medication is working, but he almost was his old self.  He took me on a tour of his new home and yard, spoke pleasantly (dad and I dont always get along, too much alike).  He even slipped me $50.  I dont know if it was my birthday gift or if he was just giving it to me cuz he did it rather secretly.  I have been praying a lot for my dad so maybe the presence of God was there, it sure seemed peaceful. 

I cut an inch(measured it myself) off of my hair on monday the 25th.  Hair is reallly improving, the layered look is almost gone.  I am trying to grow the underneath layer to same length as the top.  I want my ends to be the same length and thickness.   Grin Grin.

hi im pretty new so i dont think we have been introduced im amanda aka brunette85. 78 years old, wow, your dad must have seen many things in his life. i always wanted to know what it was like to have wisdom like that. glad to hear you and your dad are getting along. i was thinking the same thing about the underneath of my hair, but i was worried that because it is near the neck and caches on clothes easily if it would be a challenge to grow it out. good luck Smiley

I am going use my journal for this experiment.  What I have done to start is---

A. Shampoo with conditioner, either vo5 or suave coconut.  Both are working quite well.
My scalp acutally has quit flaking, itchiing, and hurting/burning.

B. Condition with either a hemp oil conditioner found at Sallys or Olive oil conditoner also found at Sallys. The olive oil does leave a scent in my hair but it powders down to a real nice smell.

C. Not going to measure hair's length until October 1.  Starting measurement is 41 inches.

D. Continue to s & d on a bi-monthly schedule, every other friday.  working good also.

E. Still planning to trim on or about the 24th of June.

F.  Wear hair up as much as possible to protect it from weather, and to keep me from standing in front of the mirror watching it grow.

So, I plan to keep record here.

Today is friday and my hairs are greasy today.  I wonder if maybe I should start washing (coing) 3x a week now.  I washed last friday and it looked good.  Got a compliment Wed nite at church.  My friend says it really looks a lot better now.  I guess there were some flyaways around my part and she said they dont stickup anymore.  She also commented on how much softer my hair was looking and feeling.  I noticed it took about 4 to dry, where I could be presented in public.  It used to take at 6 hours for that to be possible.  If the weather coopeerates this next week, I will be able to s&d in the sun.  Cant wait.

I was looking in the mirror at the back of my head, and I noticed my hair is now fingertip length.  It acturally hides my hand.  WOW!!!! Roll Eyes.  I am considering cutting only a 1 1/2 inches instead of 3 inches in june.  Going back and forth over that tho cuz 3 inches is a lot of hair to give up.  On the the hand, it would be a lot healthier.  I dunno.  We'll see.

Why not just cut the 1.5" to see how it looks?  If you still think you need to trim more you can.  (But, as we all know - you can't put back what you've cut off!!  Wink )

Yes, BB, I have decided (sorta, maybe) to only take off 1 1/2 inches this time (June).   Grin.

Today is saturday and boy is my hair greasy.  I decided against getting up and washing it yesterday.  So, now I have greasy clumps and a very itchy scalp.  It does need to be washed 3x weekly.  I bought some new hairwashing condish yesterday, so I am anxious to try it.

Glad things are going so well with your experiment.

question- What is s & d ?

I have been letting my hair go as long as possible between washings, as well.
I almost always wear my hair up, but by the third day I have to be careful to really wear it up, away from my face and neck, or it will affect my complexion on my face neck and back.
If it does not creep me out to much I can go 4 days without washing it, but it is hard to go longer than that. Undecided

I expect to see you as the first person to post on the Measure Up Forum in October.
And I will be the first person in line to read it. Grin
Good luck!

Search and destroy - a common term for finding and trimming off any split ends.  Also referred to as "dusting" (due to the dust of trimmed ends that can result).

Today is friday and I DIDNOT get up to wash my hair.  Consequently, I am a grease-ball.  Scalp is really itching too.  Summer is back in force.  Went from mild 60s to high 90s in 24 hours.  AC is a lovely thing to have.  Hair/scalp love the heat, I cant stand it.  Hair grows even faster during this time of year. 

I wore my hair up to work today, and I am going to have to wear it up every day now.  I will even wear it up to church.  I tried the "sock bun" yesterday, and I like it.  With a little more practice it will become another "do" that I can wear anywhere.  I think I need to find a bigger sock tho cuz I have to much hair, and havent figured out how to get the distribution equal.  It was a "wee bit" lopsided.  Hahaha  Roll Eyes!!!

Well, I couldnt wait any longer.  According to the morrocco method, yesterday was a good day to trim hair for strength.  So---I took off 1 1/2 inches.  Feels sooooo much better now.  I do not know whether I will cut again on the 24th of June or not.  Depends on a few things. 
A. my attitude
B. hairs attitude
C. hairs growth, it grows pretty fast in the summer.
D. any damage

I have kept it up due to heat.  It is HOT under all this hair.  I washed it yesterday after trim, then did a a damp oil, and put up.  It is greasy but so what, its up and I cant see the grease. I am cutting to get the nape and canopy the same length.  Also, for thicker, healthier ends and length.  So, on we grow.
