Thanks Mike for your support. Smile I am looking forward to reaching my mini goals.
 
I got my new Flexi-8 in the mail today. I'll be taking action shots soon, and will post them.
 
I found a few spilts the other day and did a S&D. I shouldn't have any spilts, I just got a trim about a month ago! Confused Anyways, I am going to wear my hair up for awhile, and baby my ends. When I went to the hair dressers she used a flat iron on my hair, which freaked me out. I'm wondering if thats where the damage is coming from.

I would stay away from any heat. Everything I have picked up not too many with long hair like Dryers and Irons.

I agree, Mike. I decided the next time I get a trim, I'm leaving with my hair wet! I am seriously thinking about buying a good pair of sissors and have my DH trim my hair, when needed. I am also thinking about stopping dyeing my hair. Confused I'm not sure about the salt and pepper look. I have been looking at pics of women with salt and pepper hair, and it can be hot!

My New Flexi-8....
 
 
Here are some pics of my new flexi. I got a size XS it fits alot better then the Small I bought last time. I'm not loving the gold color against my hair. But, I do love it. I can't wait to buy more of them. Big%20smile
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Conditioning....
 
Since last post, I did an over night of heavy oiling with coconut oil. My hair soaked it up. My hair is so dry this winter.  My hair looks and feels so much better now. Smile I am going to do the heavy oiling every week or so.

Ponytail progress pics....
 
I took this pic in the spring of 2008. I was so excited I could wear my hair in a ponytail! Barely, as you can see, the sides are sticking out.
 
 
 
I took this pic about a week ago. I noticed I was wearing the same shirt.
 
 
 
 
Other hair news....
 
I stopped using Jojoba Oil. It was making my ends dry and crunchy. I haven't done any daily oiling in a couple weeks. I'm only doing the over night oiling with coconut oil, once a week or so. My hair feels and looks great!
 
 
Merry Christmas! Big%20smile

Thanks Jenn for the encouragement!
 
Thanks Mike! I'm going to at least try to not dye any more. Like you said, if I don't like it, I can just dye it again.  Smile

My DH got me this for christmas.....

 
I love it! I keep all my jewelry, hair toys and make-up in it. It's nice to have everything in one place! I got some money and gift cards too. I went shopping today and bought some earrings and make-up. Oh, and I bought a good pair of Shears on ebay. Those came in the mail today. Also, I contacted flexi-8 and told them I didn't like the gold flexi, they told me I can exchange it. Big%20smile I'm getting a silver one with light blue. I'll take pictures of it in my hair when I get it.

Wow Paper. Your hair is looking lovely. The condition, the colour.. And it seems to grow rather fast. You've made me want new hair toys now. I have a real love for pretty hair tidbits.. Like a magpie    Let's hope 2009 brings us all great luck for our growth plans

Trying to grow out layers for a more matched, and uniformed style :D

One Year Progress Pictures.

This picture was taken Jan 08....
 
 
 
This picture was taken 1 year later....
 
 
 
I have on the same shirt so you can see how much it grew. I measured my hair and gained 1 inch last month! My hair is now 20" long. I'm so excited to reach my mini goal of 20" hoorayI didn't expect that until Feb.
 
 
My New Year Resolution, is to exercise! I bought a floor mat and weights and am going walk on my tread mill every day.
 
 
My Hair Goals, for 2009. I reached my mini goal of 20". Next goal is APL. I think I'll reach that at 23". And, then BSL by end of the year.
 
 
Happy New Year!!! party

Hair Cutting Tools....
 
 
 
 
I'm all set now to trim my own hair! dance1
 
I bought some good Shears and the CreaClip. I trimmed my own bangs last night, and they turned out great! It's going to be nice keeping my bangs the length I like. And, I'm going to have my DH trim the back of my hair every few months, just a tiny bit to clean up the ends. I'm so excited, I don't have to go to the salon any more! dance3

LOVE your new jewelry chest!  It's so pretty and will be a lot of fun keeping all your goodies in there.  Congrats on the hair tools too!  My hubby would be a nervous wreck to cut my hair. 

Good luck on your resolutions!  My NY resolution is to; make no NY resolutions.dance2

Measuring...
 
I just measured my APL is 23-24" and BSL is 26-27"
 
I'm at 20" now, so it is possible to reach those goals this year! barmy
 
Especially now that I have my own cutting tools, I can do micro trims.

My hair has been so dry and frizzy this winter! I started using Jojoba Oil again. This time, I'm using it on my dry hair. I rub a drop in my hands then smooth it on my hair. It's working good, my hair feels so soft! I'm not getting the crunchiness, like I was when I was putting it on my wet hair.
 
I bought some Coconut Water today. I'm not sure how I'm going to use it yet. Either as a rinse or a leave in. Also, I ordered a sample pack of soapnuts on e-bay. Some people have had wonderfull results washing their hair with them. I'll let you know my results!
