As the year comes to an end...

So as 2009 slowly comes to an end I figured I do make a list of things that I have learned since doing my big chop. 

1.) The importance of detangling. (It truly makes dealing with natural hair a 1000000 times easier)
2.) The importance of a regime 
3.) Good products are not hard to find, you just have to do a little research
4.) Heat damage can occur on the first or hundredth time you apply a lot of heat. (Learned that from other people's experiences)
5.) Co-Washing a lot isn't as great when your hair is growing longer.(Can you say tangles galore!)
6.) Deep conditioning is a complete MUST and hair changer
7.) Never rest your head on ANYTHING without a scarf or bonnet.
8.) In order to achieve fabulous twists or twist outs. Don't put a scarf or bonnet on right after finishing them and then go to bed because they will be flat. (It took me awhile to figure that out)
9.) I learned to love my hair more now that I know how it works
10.) Don't give up on a product just because it didn't work the first time
11.) Natural hair is totally MANAGEABLE!!!!
12.) Drinking lots of water and eating really does help your hair.
