All these chemicals...LOL

So last night I went through my 'hair' cabinet in my bathroom. I ended up printing out the list of '10 Chemicals to Avoid Putting On Your Hair' courtesy of Nappturality. As I was going through the cabinet and pulling out products I was surprised at the amount of products that I had and all the chemicals that were in them. WOW!!! It was actually kind of scary. I am determined to have healthy hair and rid myself of all the crazy chemicals so I put everything in a basket and gave it to my grandmother. She laughed and said 'Stick with it Pumpkin!'

I only have 5 products in the cabinet now. I still need to get a detangler and some aloe vera gel. But I'm good on everything else. I am enjoying the journey and learning so much as I go along. I feel that if I am going to do this, I am going to do it right, so getting rid of all those chemicals is a MUST!!

A New Day..A New Beginning

So after 2 years of going back and forth with my decisions on a lot of things I have decided that I am going to step out of my comfort zone and do things that I have been wanting to do. One of them being event planning and the other being 'going natural'. I'm nervous, scared and excited all at the same time, but this is something I must do for myself and no one else. 

Thanks to a very good friend I met on Twitter I can begin my transition stage with someone to talk to. It's a great feeling to know that you have someone to bounce your questions and ideas off of. It is something I have wanted to do but wasn't sure if I was ready for it. Now that I am, I am stepping out of my comfort zone and doing something I have never done. It feels wonderful to live out my purpose in life. 

I got my last relaxer in mid-May and I am now due for a touch up. My grandmother asked me if I wanted her to put my touch up in this week and I said 'no gramma, I'm all set. No more relaxer for me.' She just looked at me and smiled. That right there made me cry. My hair is thick and coarse but I love it. So I am going to embrace my newness and continue to enjoy life. 

Be Blessed!
