Why you haven't seen pics

K, so I know it's been a really long time since I posted pics and some of you may be wondering; What's up?!

Hair's Tha Thing, because of the way my alopecia patched formed (and grew TREMENDOUSLY) in the back of my head, it got to the point that combing my hair down showed no progress b/c there was literally a big hole in the back covering the left side of my head.  The middle hairs came down only so far so it looks pretty lopsided  b/c the right side is APL but the left side looks like it's barely neck length (Yes it's definitely depressing, to say the least)  :(

Don't cry for me, I am surely not anyone's quitter and will fight a battle with tears in my eyes (and I've had many over this fiasco!)

So as far as the pic taking goes, I've come up with this, I will now show you guys progress/comparison pics of the front and side, allowing you to witness the growth and helping me keep track of what's working and what's not.  And b/c of the position of the lost hair, the back is getting some weave tracks, otherwise I would have to shave my head bald as there is not even a hair cut the can really blend it all in and FOR ME that's not happening.

So those are the plans, Stay Tuned.....

Needing a New Moisturizer

I seriously need some suggestions. My hair is so NOT liking anything I have in my cabinet.  Now I was on the last bits of almost all of my products b/4 I started packing and with all the chaos I had going on I haven't had the time to reorder any of my much needed items.  This also got me to thinking.  In situations like these it's a little too much to be dependent on items that you can't replenish immediately.  So, I've always lucked up to find leave-ins, and co-washing condishes locally but I need some ideas on a good daily moisturizer and moisturizing deep conditioners, cone free, found locally.

Any suggestions?!

New Year - New Focus

Happy New Years to my followers and visitors of Hair's Tha Thing! I am so looking forward to gr8 and prosperous things in these years to come!

So I've been gone oh too long and I truly missed blogging.  Back in September the hubs and I were in a serious car accident.  I truly thank God for pulling us through. Being in and out of dr's offices, and therapy 3x's/week is a lot.... a whole lot, but like I said I am truly thankful  b/c it can always be worse.  Needless to say I have soooo NOT been focusing on hair, or anything hair related and my hair has suffered just a lil bit b/c of it.

Well that's why I haven't been around, just wanted to you know I didn't abandoned you or my blog!  It's now time to regain focus and to get back on track.

This year I will be focusing a WHOLE lot more with this battle I've been fighting w/alopecia.  It's been an ongoing, outright war between us for the past 2 years, but I'm competitive and it's a battle I'm determined to win.  My goal's this year will be the following:

1 - Growing out this patch once and for all.  Period. Point. Blank
2 - Getting the patch to shoulder length by the end of 2011.
3 - Overall thickness throughout my entire head
4 - More growth in the temple and nape area (filling in temples - faster growth - nape)

That's it for now, if I think of more I'll add to it as necessary.  Stay tuned!
