Finally, My First Post!

Hello All,

MJ here. I apologize for the delay in posting, I have been braided up for the last six weeks so I didn't have much to talk about.

So here is my history hairstory:

My mother started relaxing my hair when I was six years old, thats right I said six. And I lived the lye until middle school. In middle school I started getting braid extensions and kept getting them done for two or three years. I wore my natural hair once, to my sophomore cotillian and after that I got a texturizer... Ughhh. so once my hair dried out and broke off I cut it all off and unfortunately started relaxing again. I kept a steady routine of braiding and relazing until 2006. In June 2006, I got my last perm. I didnt have a dramatic big chop, I just decided I wasn't going to get perms anymore so I transitioned with braids and trimmed aggressively until all the perm was gone. After spending countless hours on you tube, nappturality.com, and various other hair sites, I finally got the courage to take my braids out in September of 2008.

I have 4c type hair. Or if your scale only goes to 4b then I have that. My hair is fine, soft, kinky, cottony, and shrinks a lot. I am always looking for a new products to try that can keep my hair moist, a constant struggle. My current quest is to find a good deep conditioner. I will let you know how that goes. I love using natural products on my natural hair, but I don't exclusively use natural products. My last product purchase was Miss Jessie's Stretch Silkening Creme. Here are the results:

I actually really liked it. I was slow to give in to all the Miss Jessie's hype, because while some people love the products, other find them grossly overrated. But I bit the bullet and purchased the product (during the annual bogo sale) washed my hair, applied generously and twisted my hair in about ten twists. The silkening creme like all of Miss Jessie's products are expensive, but I was pleased with the result, and it smells great.
