Well, I have been on this board for years, so I guess I should start creating a hair journal.    My hair is finally getting longer, but it has been a journey.  My hair was cut to shoulder length back in 2002, but I can't find any pics from the.  I want my hair to grow long and healthy.  How long?  Let's see where it goesSmile!



Fall 2004 (flash)


2007 - (no flash) - my hair is darker without it





August 2008


June 2009

I also had the front of my hair highlighted and I really like it.  That was done a 2 weeks ago.



I am really happy with the growth and very excited to see how long it will grow!!!

Hi Kimbearly. I am sooo glad you decided to make a hair journal. Your hair is gorgeous :) I love love love love your locks and it has grown sooo much. I cant believe how long its gotten and I love the curls and the highlights. I cant wait to see how much more your hair will keep growing. YOu should take some pics in different styles like ponytails, buns, and braids and that. Itd be cute :) what do u think?

PBurgh - hate ponytails - only wear them when I wash my face and go for a jog, bun - a pretty messy one, is what I wear when I go to bed and I am not a braid kind of girl.  I like to wear my hair all natural and down and flowing.  It took me so long to grow it gosh darn it - I am going to show it off!!!

I really, really, really hate predisone.  I have to take it for my asthma since it got bad after bronchitis.  I am shedding hair and really hate it.  I have about 5 more days on this horrible stuff.  Great for the lungs - horrible for the hair.  My poor hair feels sickCry

Awww Kimbearly good for you. I never thought of it that way but def just let it flow and show it off. Your hair is beautiful and you should def show it off for people to see. I have to agree tho a ponytail or messy bun is the way to go when doing athletics or sleeping. That is probably how I will do mine. I hope your hair gets better too :( THat predisone must be bad :(

Did I tell you how much I hate predisone?  It is horrible.  My poor hair feels limp and in shock.  My body is having the shakes as I slowly come off this stuff and my hunger is through the roof!  Did I tell you about my attitude?  Well, don't mess with me.  Think of the most horrible PMS in the world.  I already warned my children and husband when I went on it - and they have been wonderful.  Actually they have been doing everything I tell them the first time - hmmmmmm, I might have to lie and tell them I am on this longer than I really will be.  hehehe  


On another note.  I have been trying out the Hair One Cleansing Conditioner from Sally's.  I have been using the Color Treated Formula.  I really like the shine it gives my hair, treats the frizz very well and smells great.  The only problem is that my head feels itchy.  Now, I am not sure if this is the predisone doing this or the new stuff.  I usually only wash with VO5 extra body conditioner.  The VO5 does not give the shine and the frizz control that the Sally's brand does.  I also have the normal hair formula of this stuff from Sally's and I will try that for a few days to see if it makes a difference.  The Color Treated Formula has Jojoba oil in it.  When I tried this oil before just by itself it made my head itchy - so thinking it is probably it and maybe not the predisone. 

 


I also love this mousse and have been using it for about 20 years.  I buy it by the case since it is hard to find.  I have enough to last me probably another 5 years - LOL!

Well, I tried the Cucumber Hair One formula from Sally's. This is said to be for "normal" hair.  My find is that is cleaned more thoroughly than the color treated formula with Jojoba oil.  I also found my scalp to not be itchy and get this - I had practically no fall out this morning!  Maybe I am allergic to jojoba oil after all? My hair did seem to be a bit bigger today, and maybe a bit dryer.  I love what the jojoba oil did to my hair - more shine, less frizz - but the fallout and the itches are going to make me stay away from it. 

My next to try on the list of the Hair One Products will be the dry hair formula.  It cleanses with Olive Oil.  I have used olive oil in the past and my hair really likes it.  I guess I will stop at Sally's tomorrow and use my 20% off coupon.  I am also going to see if I can return the Jojoba one, since it did not do very well with my hair.

Wow I will have to try all these different products to see what suits me. Im sorry aobut the fall out :( If it wasnt for that jojoba sounds great with the more shine and everything . Def let me know how the hair one  products work. Good luck returning jojoba and good luck at sallys. any other products that you prefer? Keep up the great growth :)
