Hello Dolls and Dudes,

So today I have decided to jump on the bandwagon and commence my Healthy Hair Journey. In the hair world the lingo would my HHJ. Since about September of 2012 I have been doing some light research on hair, how to make it more healthy etc. I have found out about many different products, techniques, regimens, I think I know enough to begin my own HHJ.


Well, I am going to be honest, the only thing I really know about my hair is what I have been learning over the last few months. I do not know how to maintain my hair or style it. I usually like to go to the salon but I want to try to learn how to do it myself I think it would save a lot of money for me. I haven't had a relaxer since about October of last year. I know that was only like four months ago but, I am having a really hard time managing my new growth. This is why I a choosing to go on a Healthy Relaxed Hair Journey (HRHJ)
Maybe one day I will try to go natural.....I don't know maybe... I believe with proper care Relaxed hair can too grow long and healthy.

NATURAL: To rock your hair in it's natural unprocessed state. 

RELAXED: Chemically processed hair, a chemical is used to loosen up curls or coils into a straight texture

TEXLAXED: Chemically processed hair, the same chemical used to relax your hair is used to texlax your hair. The only difference is that you DO NOT leave the relaxing chemical on as long causing the hair to not be as straight. This loosens the coils some but leaves texture in the root still hence the name texlaxed.


I have decided to eat right, lose weight, exercise and just get myself all the way right starting this year on. Part of my new self make over from the inside out should include my hair, hey why not. That way once I get to my desired weight and size and health I will be bad from head to toe. Also I find myself snacking when I am bored, I love all things beauty so if I focus spare time on maybe polishing my nails or doing make up or tending to my hair then I will not have time to randomly snack. Last but not least my hair is in the worst shape of its life right now and I need to do something about it. My hair has been long most of my life long as I had someone else doing it. I want to see if I can nurse my hair back to life myself, get it healthy and make it grow myself.


I had no idea there were so many different types of hair textures let alone charts and stuff below are some of the pictures that helped me to determine the hair type that I have. 

By the way I have determined I have 4a and 4b textures on my head. 4c is the newest type of hair recently added to the charts it is the most kinky curly hair on the chart. I have a feeling the charts will be changing because, there are plenty of people like me out there with mixed textures on their heads....we'll see

Now that I am starting my hair journey I will be doing lots of posts about my hair and updates and regimens. All things I have found useful to me and my HRHJ.
I know I am going to go through a lot of trial and error trying to find what products work best for my hair type. Keep in mind different hair types require different products sometimes, and what may work great for my hair may not work that great for you.

Have you started a hair journey? Are you nautral or Relaxed? Or Texlaxed?


  1. I am texlaxed and I am now past BSL with my natural hair..I don't post much about it on my blog but I often post pics on my IG account @style4curves. It took my three years to get to BSL with protective styling. I will say one thing the only way to get amazing growth is to let your hair rest from heat and excessive styling. Protective styles are the best!

  2. BSL wow girlie that is amazing. You should talk about your texlaxed hair I would love to know more one day I will go natural but no time soon. I am going to relax now texlax later then natural one day maybe. You are right protective styles are extremely important.

  3. Yay!! HHJ! I began mine in 07 and haven't regretted a day :) I am a natural 3c/4a and APL. Its a beautiful journey and very rewarding. I definitely agree with protective styles and less heat. I recommend creating an account on I learned so much about healthy hair care on that site. I'm excited for your HHJ!!!
