The Quest for Thick Ends!

My ends haven't always been a problem like they're starting to become now. They used to be so thick and full and would coil without a care in the world. But these days, it seems like they're fraying and always look dry even after a fresh moisturizing section and I just can't for the life of me understand why.

Well maybe I can.

My regimen flip flopped a ton over the years and maybe that's why my ends seem to be taking a turn for the worse. =/ Shame, shame right?

WELL that won't stop me. For I'm taking evasive action RIGHT now before I let my hair get too much longer. Now I really am beginning to see that weak ends really can kill the look of fabulously long hair and I, for one, do not desire that type of hair. I want all-around healthy hair and so we are back to the square one that I started when I first went natural. My plan of action is as follows:

  • Deep condition on a weekly basis
  • Trim ends every two to three months until I get to desired health. From that point on, trim less frequently like every three to five months to ensure health.
  • Take daily mulitvitamins
  • Oil and massage scalp daily
  • Protective style
Is that about all I can do? I thought about incorporating the "Baggy Method". I still don't understand it too much but basically, it's about wrapping your hair up in a ponytail, then covering the ends in some moisture and tying it up with a little sandwich baggy and letting it sit overnight or under your wig or something to that effect. I don't know if I need all that because I don't think my ends are horrible. They're just....not good. This is what I'm trying to get back to:

And here's where I am now...

Yeah. I've already done a bit of a trim, I think I took off about half an inch, and they are STILL annoying me! So they will continue to go bit by bit. But you see how they aren't HORRIBLE but not so "fabulous" either.....So but anyways, we shall see what kind of turn around Nelly starts making by the end of the year and if I need any further trimming (which I probably will just because I'm feeling scissor happy....).

Keep Calm
and Keep It Coily
