I've been away forever, so I must FIRST apologize! My job has me bombarded with more work than I expected. I have a TON of work today as well, but I had to make some time for an update!!
Here's what's new with me! I'm in a TOTAL hair rut!!! I'm bored of my color and have decided I am DEFINITELY going back to my dark hair in November. I'm just getting tired of the upkeep. I will probably go light again in the summer, but for now, I'm going to the darkest brown I can find.
Another new happening is I've decided it's time to leave my natural hair salon and go to a salon that specializes in coily/kinky hair. There IS a difference. My stylist can give a pretty good HAIRCUT, but she seems to only STYLE hair in locs or twists of some kind. I've been going to her for years and just getting color and then leaving with my hair in a wet puff. I need to find a place that can actually style my coily hair when it's wet, and uses products that are good for my hair.
I've done some research and found that there is a place called James Brown in Philly that can give good coily cuts and color too. The only qualms I have about this place is that they also do relaxers. I'm not sure how I feel about that. It would seem that a place that says they do coily hair wouldn't do relaxers as well. What do you think about that? I'll be calling them today to find out about the products they use. If all goes well, I'll make an appointment next week.
Well, I just wanted to check in and tell you I haven't forgotten about you!!! Hopefully, I'll get back to regular updates! I hope all is well with you! :)
