BEAUTY: Hair Therapy and Growth

Hey all!  So I cut my hair to deal with my "fun" bad habit of pulling out my hair.  My stylist in San Diego is amazing and she knows what to do with me.  I was good for a little bit but now I been bad at pulling again.  So now it's time to get serious because I actually want to grow out my hair and to grow back the hair I've pulled.

So far this is my regimen and I will keep you All posted on results.

For last 5 months I have been taking these supplements to help

3 times a day, with meals

Try for twice a day with breakfast and dinner

I also just started using Mane 'n Tail to help with growth and strength
I like my results so far.
You can purchase anywhere they sell shampoo.

I use these hair fibers to fill in my part or top of my crown on spots where I have pulled out too much hair.
Yes it is embarrassing, but I need to come to terms with my bad habit and I'm trying to make it better.
You can get these hair fibers at Walgreens, Rite Aid or where they sell other Vivscal Products.  

I will keep you posted on my results!
So far I've already had two haircuts so I know my hair is growing more quickly.  Since the pulling started in February last year, most of those original hairs from my center part, side part and crown have grown back pretty well, except for the gray hairs I keep finding and some I've pulled out.   
For me this has to do with texture and not much else.  
I don't want to pull out my hair but I just tend to do it when I'm reading or doing other things.
I love tweezing my eyebrows so I know I've had a compulsion for pulling unwanted hairs.
I'm trying to get to the bottom of it and to have my full head of hair back soon!

Until then its hiding it, creative styling and vitamins! :D

Wish me luck!

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
