Back From Vacation + Trim + Hair Update

Monday, April 30, 2012

No blog posts means ..... Sunshyne is away! LOL

It`s been a while since I`ve blogged (so sorry) but there`s a reason for that. Mid April I was SWAMPED with studying and final exams. I had zero time for myself. A couple days after that, my family and I went off to Varadero, Cuba (1 week) to relax and have some fun in the sun. I had a blast!! The Cuban people are so nice and friendly and the food was delicious! I wish I stayed a little longer :(

I came back last week, however, getting back into the routine of things took some time. I`m back on schedule so blogging and doing my hair care routine is priority :) Just a quick update, I relaxed my hair April 12th at 3 months post relaxer. This stretch was good. No complaints. Everything went smooth during my relaxer. I used The Sprush so expect a review on that :)

Here are some pics of my hair air drying right after my relaxer:
I haven`t had a trim since September 2011, so I trimmed my ends (the day after my relaxer, April 13th 2012) up to a little below BSL, I wouldn`t call it MBL, however, my hair will be MBL for my next relaxer (late June 2012). I got a blunt cut right across, as usual. Next time I`ll probably cut my ends in a "U" shape....I want something different.

You may not know this, but I don`t trim my ends myself anymore. After numerous tries, I realized that I would get so paranoid that I`d never take off enough "ends", so my hair ended up suffering even more i.e. tangles, breakage etc. Sounds weird, but it`s true. I now leave the trimming to my stylist for a few dollars and it lasts for 6 months :)

Couple days after my trim.

Wrapped and ready to go to bed!

That`s all! Just wanted to share :)
