So I realized that as of late my hair just has not been feeling the way it normally does, Ive also been getting alot more breakage than usual. My fave protein treatment is not available in the stores near my house, and I always forget to get it when I go to Sallys so I've been without it for awhile. After scouring the net last night, I decided to go with Nexxus Emergencee.

• Washed with Redken Real Control Shampoo
• Rinsed
• Applied Nexxus Emergencee
• Sat under soft bonnet dryer until it dried
• Rinsed
• Applied Redken Real Control Intense Renewal Mask
• Steamed for 30 minutes under soft bonnet dryer

After rinsing the Emergencee from my hair, I could immediately feel a difference! The product doesn't get rock hard like Aphogee, it isn't runny and smelly either. Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase and I will add this to my staple products.

• Hair is 98% Keratin (protein) and 2% water

•Chemical services and heat usage breaks down, and damages your hair, so it needs to be replaced in order to keep your hair strong enough to withstand day to day damage.

• You better have a damned good MOISTURIZING Deep Conditioner to balance your hair back out. If this isn't done, you'll have hard hair that snaps off VERY easily. Not a pretty sight.

• If your hair is already snapping off very easily go for a MOISTURE DEEP CONDITIONER first. Your breakage may very well be from moisture deficiency.

•When starting to take better care of your hair, pay attention to what your hair really needs at the time. You aren't going to need an intense protein every time, you may only need a mild protein, or even moisture. Start on the mild side and assess your needs from

•Protein overload can be a nightmare to correct (or so I've read), so it's best to find out just how much protein your hair can handle for jumping straight into uncertain waters.


Protein is especially important for you hotties! You should use a protein TREATMENT 1 week before your relaxer. This will help you experience less breakage at relaxer time.


• Roux Mendex Hair Repair Treatment
• Aphogee 2 Step Treatment for Damaged Hair
• Eggs

• Mane and Tail Conditioner

• Infuisum 23

What are your hair goals for 2010?

I was just sitting here thinking of what I want for my hair...

Health wise my hair is great, it's shiney, soft, minimal breakage. I don't have any scalp issues.

Style wise is hair is coming along, I got into a styling rut and I'm slowly digging my way out.

Product wise my hair is happy. I have all the main products that I feel are essential for healthy hair.

Moisturizing shampoo
Moisturizing conditioner
Deep conditioner
Protien treatment
Protien leave in

Length wise... Well Im growing my hair to waist length, and it's going to take at least another 5-6 inches until I get there. I've been growing my hair out since 09/2007, and I feel my length is great considering frequent trims due to transitioning. I also want to get a really good trim in few months, so the first order of business is getting mid-back length by the end of 2010

What are goals for 2010?

I've realized that many of you may not be familiar with the type of blog that I render. This blog is for African American women that have hair problems. We all have them right? When combing your hair it ends up all over the floor, and on your clothes. When its wet it tangles really bad, or when you come out of your sew in your hair is the same length it was 2 months ago. Is this normal? Sadly for some it just may be. WEll thats just what this blog is for. To help you end all of your hair woes. I will provide tips for excellent hair care and maintanance, that your current stylist either hasnt told you, or just doesnt know herself. I AM NOT A LISCENCED COSMETOLOGIST, and i do not plan on venturing out into that field. What I have done is researched methods and techniques for African American hair to be the best it can be. I am not promising miraculous results in a short period of time, nor am I selling anything. I am here to give tips on how to preserve (or obtain) that sexy hair!
