It’s been weeks!!!! As you know, I straightened my hair like 2.5 weeks ago. It came out fantastic. I oiled it every night (just about). I switched up the oils I used. In the beginning, I used mostly grape seed oil, then I switched to jojoba oil, then olive oil and I also used Moroccan oil here and there. I wrapped my hair every night and I don’t think I’ve worn any protective styles the whole time. Tsk!
Having straight hair was a nice change from the usuals, but I vowed not to workout while my hair was straight. So after two weeks, I hit the gym and my hair curled right back up at the roots (as expected). I’ve been working out since. The most impressive part is that I’m on week three without washing my hair!
Why am I excited about dirty hair? Well… my scalp has been in such bad condition for years now, I HAD to wash my hair ever week (or less) otherwise I ran into major problems. Now that my scalp is in great health, I can comfortably go 2 weeks without having to wash it. I also realized that I usually wash my hair when it’s time to change my style. Like now, for example, I’d love to have a twist out, but I’m going to wait until the weekend to wash my hair.
I went to the Get Radical Conference 2012 and I got to meet a bunch of great women! You may recognize some…
Jillian Michaels (My personal trainer… in my head LOL)
Lisa Price (Founder of Carol’s Daughter)

I was sooooo going to text you to ask where you’ve been!!! What the heck, where have you been meeting all these ladies?!?!? And OMG, Jillian is as little as you?!?!?! Or she might be MY height?!?! LOL!! Wooh-hooh!! Do you think that it’s the Terressentials that whipped your scalp into shape!! Hey girl!!! I’ve missed you:)!!
I knowwwwww! I’ve been M.I.A. I went to a conference and all of them were there!
Jillian is tiny. I met her before, but this time I realized just how small she is. She’s probably your height, she’s not as short as I am.
As far as my scalp goes, it’s definitely because I don’t let the conditioner get on my scalp and I don’t use leave-in anymore. My scalp was just over conditioned. It’s great to have clean scalp, now I know how everyone else has been living.
Great post. I’m glad your scalp is doing a lot better. What will you say contributes most to having less irritated scalp?
That’s great you got to meet those celebs. I would have loved to have met Lisa Price.
Not sure if you saw my comment above to Shelli, but what contributes the most to having a less irritated scalp is that I don’t allow the conditioner to touch my scalp anymore. I literally used to massage conditioner into my scalp. What was I thinking?!?!? LOL
I saw your response to Shelli after hitting the send button.
Oh ok. I figured you hadn’t seen it yet.
Lisa Price is such a sweetheart and soooooooo humble.
She seems like a very nice and down-to-earth type of person.
I am so hating you right now!!!!!!!! Jillian I love her so she is awesome!!!! Lucky you!!!!
She really is! I went to her last book signing when she was in NY. She’s great in person too.
Awwww, very nice post, glad to see you’re hanging out with such phenomenal women! And kudos on the clean scalp!!
Yes ma’am. In order to be great, you have to surround yourself with greatness! Lol
Aww Missed you Rece! Are you doing the GOC again?
Hey miss! No, I’m sitting this one out. I can barely keep up with my own site as you can see. LOL. You can always read about me here! =)
Not Jillian! She’s a tough trainer. Bob Harper is my personal trainer…in my head lol.
I used to like Suze Orman’s advice but she’s said some contradictory things that I don’t agree with lately.
sounds like you had a great time!
Hey lady! I have a question about the conference. Did you have to buy the VIP tickets to be able to meet the speakers?
I bought the VIP ticket. I think you did have to have the VIP ticket to meet Jillian, Suze and Lisa Nichols.
