What Happened?

I don't post as often as I used to. At one point, I was posting almost 5 times a week, maybe even more. But as you all can tell, that was a thing of the past.

So, let me explain what happened.

1.) I figured out MY hair- When I started this blog, I had short relaxed hair. My main goal was to learn as much as I could about relaxed hair and share that with y'all. In turn, I tried many methods and loads of products. I was also on hair boards heavily. That's no longer the case. I stick to what works, I don't try many products and I probably visit a hair board once every 3 months or so. All of that trial and error really helped me realize that less is more, for me.

2.) I switched jobs- I probably shouldn't put this up here. But at my last company, blogger wasn't blocked. So on lunch, since I rarely left the building, I was able to research and post. At my new company, blogger is blocked so I can no longer do that.

3.) I returned to my natural hair- Natural hair just seems very natural to me(no pun intended). It's not so much of a hair journey to me and more-so just taking care of my hair. Although I would like it to be a teeny bit longer, I'm using patience to get there and not any "different" methods.

4.) I lost the passion- This is probably the most important of all. You can't be dedicated to something or someone that you aren't passionate about.  Hair used to be such a huge passion of mine. While I still enjoy helping others, I am just not as passionate about hair as I used to be. It probably shows in my posts which is why I don't really gain as much "followers" as I used to and don't receive many comments as well.

With that said, I will continue to post as much as I can. My domain is up for renewal in June and I will have to seriously consider if this blog will remain.

I am VERY active on Tumblr and post often. I sometimes even post hair-updates there. I don't know if it's because I receive more feedback or if it's because it's easily accessable...but if you do want to keep up with me that's where to go.
