Weekend Update

Yesterday I tried deep conditioning my hair. I don't know what the heck is going on with my hair. Its like a rats nest. It is so dry and frizzy. This is not my hair. I spent an hour with my hair full of coconut oil and then wrapped in cellophane as a pre-conditioner. Then washed and dried it. It felt softer, but still frizzy as hell. So today after the walk and I got in the shower, I used my hydrating hair masque. Its still frizzy as hell and even my chi won't take out the curl. I swear its going to fall out. The ONLY thing I can think of is hormones. Seriously. Feel free to give me any advice you can. I'll take it. Heck, I'll try anything these days. I look so awful.

Today, I had a full day. I got up early and cleaned up a mess then went back to bed. Got up, ate a nice breakfast while the boys were visiting Bubbie. Then they came home ate lunch and we all went to the lake. I probably walked 5 miles. My you-know-what is feeling it too. We walked a little with only E riding the bike, then we went for a little water and with The Husband on the scooter and the boys on their bikes rode another four miles while I walked. I walked the same amount they rode so my bahookey (as H2 would say) is feeling it. I don't exactly have J Lo's hind end yet, but one day.....

It was so cold and nasty yesterday, while today was absolutely beautiful; and there was so much to look at while walking around the lake. Families, bikers, walkers, joggers. The sailboats on the lake were beautiful and colorful. A real stress reliever for sure. My only complaint was not having my camera, but I don't think I would have exercised nearly as well.

I also did a 400 person database with full addresses & e-mails. That will be a few bucks in the wallet that will be most welcome. I read a little Jane Austen and I'm looking forward to curling up in the bed for more book.

All-in-All a mighty fine day. Just wish I had gotten a picture of those sailboats.

I am glad it was a nice day. You deserve it.

I have not a clue about your hair.

You might need to be using a different shampoo. Shampoo strips not only dirt out of your hair but the protective oils as well. If you wash it every day, don't do that! It's really counterproductive to keeping your hair as nature intended to wash all the good stuff out of it every day and then have to put it back in artificially. Also, if you use a blow dryer, keep it off the high heat settings and use a protective spray in it before you dry it, the same if you are using a curling iron or straightener. Using a lot of products in your hair makes it look and feel *dirty* more often. STOP! Wash it 3 times a week at most if you're comfortable with that. I do mine twice a week.. seriously.
And all that *instruction* came from the lady who cuts and cares for my hair. She is always telling me how healthy mine is and that most people think they have a problem when all they really need to do is stop washing it so much and let your hair take care of itself more.
If it's as fried as you indicate, it's not going to change until it grows out. You can make it a little softer but it's already damaged and there isn't a lot you can do about it otherwise.
