Preshampoo Conditioner:

A "Prepoo" is good to incorporate into your regimen. Prepoo's are left in the hair sometimes 15-30 minutes, sometime overnight. This is done prior to shampooing. I have attached a picture of three of the products I use to Prepoo. You can also use any cheap conditioner such as "Alberto V05". Some people also use oils such as Coconut or Olive Oil.

OK, I'm ready to share the knowledge

When, I began my hair journey seriously back in 2006, I never knew exactly where it would take me. When I began dating my husband, he stated to me that he was into hair and looked at me with my ear-length hair (that I had just chopped off) and asked, "so what are you gonna do about it"? "What am I gonna do about what?" was my reply. "My hair, only grows to a certain length (just grazing the bottom of my neck) then it breaks off" "Why?" was his reply. "I don't know, that's just the way it is!", I answered.

In actuality, the last time, I had a long head of hair, I probably was about 9 years old. That was back in the days of the good old press and curl. My Aunt Pyzou (r.i.p.) would wash my hair, do a hot oil treatment and press the hell out of my hair. At that time my hair was about the length it is now (it is now grazing Arm-Pit length I have to upload some new pics). But when my Aunt moved down to Florida, and I stayed in NY with my mom (who had no clue) my hair went down south too. LOL!

There was a few times in my adult life when I have acheived a decent lenghth of hair. Back in 2002, I grew my hair to shoulder length. At that time, I was religiously going to the Dominicans. Now, I have learned so much that I only go to the Dominicans every two months for a relaxer. Other than that, I do my own hair. In this economy, I am sure a lot of ladies are looking to do the same.

To that end, on this blog, I will show various hairstyles and what I've done to acheive these styles. Your comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Happy Hair Growing!
