Run, Mascara! Run!

I don't have to tell it to because that's exactly wtf it does.   I never had this problem when I was using the Maybelline Double Extend.   And when I say never, I mean it.  That mascara didn't budge until I used wipes at the end of the day to remove it.

Now, every other one that I use leaves me looking like a damn raccoon.  Now, I love raccoons, but I do not want to look like one.

I just read that anything that I use prior to doing my eyes could cause my lashes to become to slick for the mascara to cling to.  Is that why I see chicks doing their eyes first, then proceeding with the rest of the face?  I thought they were crazy...but I guess the jokes on me because I look like I've been in a fight all day long.

I heard you was looking for me. Well, HAIR I go!

Yes, I'm corny.   Shoot me.  (Please don't.)

So, this post will be about my hair...or "rizos oros" as it was called today by a coworker.   I was really disappointed in the growth I retained last year...and actually, the two years before that too.  I should have reached waist-length years ago, but I'm never really that focused on reaching hair goals, and I can be quite a bitch to my hair.  

Now, I've gotten to the point that I'm pretty upset about it, and I'm willing to at least try harder this year.  Since I already claimed WL regardless (lol), I want to definitely be full WL by year's end.  However, I will settle for the majority of my length being past my waist.

So how do I plan on doing this?  Protective styles.  :'(

I won't be a protective styling fool, but I plan on keeping my hair up and away more than I wear those pretty little wash n go's that I love so much.

Now, it's easy to SAY that I won't wear my hair down as much, but I ain't really too keen on styling my hair.    

So far this year, I have worn french braids.  I took them down after a day or so and either bunned or worn two braids like this...

I also converted a wash n go into a puff, which I later converted into whateverthehellyouwannacallthis

All I did was take the ends of the puff and tuck them underneath the band holding my hair.  *shrugs*

My proudest style thus far has to be the set of twists I did last night.   Sunday night, I threw in some big ol twists that I didn't expect to last long.  I didn't really take the time to do them neatly, so by Tuesday, they were fuzzy and matted already.  lol   I took my time on the 2nd set...even using shea butter and whatnot.  I missed the whole SOTU because of it.

Anyway, I think they were worth the time I put into them.   What do you think?


I will try to keep them in until Sunday.

Other than tryna be Rapunzel, I've been on a personal Use It Up challenge.   I have a host of hair products that I've collected, so I'm making myself use them up before I buy new products.   This is mainly to get rid of all these moisturizers that I've accumulated and don't like much.   My conditioner and oil supply will remain stocked.  lol

Aiight...I have some hair board stalking to do.   See you all in 2012 when I post again...*snort*

2010 End of Year Hair Reveal

Yes, I'm late, but whatever.

I was on a waist-length challenge over on Black Hair Media, and I think...I THINK...that I've finally made it.  I'm claiming it.  lol

May '10
Jan '11

I tried to get close as I could to being in the same position, and I think I got the line in the same place on my the narrowest.

So, I said.  I'm claiming it.  :-p
