It has been a super long time since I posted on my website – but, for good reason! As you may noticed, my last post was published on April 7th, 2018. I know, horrible upkeep on my hair journey and reviews; however, I am super excited to announce that I am pregnant and found out around that same time as my last post!! Definitely no excuse, but my mind has been elsewhere. This is my first child, and I have been going through the pregnancy ups and downs and not really giving my hair the attention it needs and deserves. So here’s what we know about my life:
- I am 4 months pregnant
- Having a boy
- Living the dream with nausea and heart burn
- Can’t sleep
- Completely stopped doing my makeup and focusing on my hair’s health and growth
I am absolutely enjoying my pregnancy, but also scared about being a first time mother. I will say, I was frustrated with all my family and friends because they tell you about all the positive stuff about pregnancy, but PEOPLE, tell me the negative stuff too so I’m prepared and don’t become one of those whiny pregnant women. I am also amazed about how people carry themselves on Instagram, looking beautiful with heels and their belly and I’m just here looking like a blob. LOL – this will change, I promised myself that I would look like a decent human being going forward.
Okay back to my hair:
- It’s losing volume
- Some days it looks a bit dull
- Haven’t been keeping up with my 5 day routine
- Have been doing more buns than defined curls
- Need a haircut, but want to wait until I give birth
- Prenatals aren’t really giving my hair life (I’ve heard this from several people, but I’m not seeing a change, idk)
I definitely want to try something new. I have been sweating As I Am products, but maybe there’s a rule from the hair gods that says you can’t overdo 1 product, LOL. I have been dabbling in Ouidad and I love their curl cream, but I haven’t used it consistently enough to provide you ladies and gentlemen with a review.
Now that this pregnancy is out in the world, I will definitely be focusing on my hair and will get back to you all on how I’m keeping my hair alive throughout this process.
WARNING: For the next 5- 6 months, you will receive some baby talk within my posts. I can’t help it, I’m excited. Check out my IG for my Starbucks pregnancy announcement and my IG stories for baby bump pictures/videos.
