Finally, I can say that summer is officially in full swing here in Colorado. It certainly took it’s sweet time so I’m definitely enjoying the warmer weather and all it has to bring. I must admit that blogging is a little further down on my list than before only because I’m drawn to the outdoors like a moth to flame. I even have a new summertime hair routine that keeps me out of the mirror and outdoors where I want to be.

My Summertime Hair Routine
I’m still concerned about the hair I lost when I was caring for my scalp psoriasis in the fall. That whole experience left me wanting to get back to the length I had before all of the breakage and shedding. To retain my length I’ve been keeping my hair up as much as possible so that my ends are protected and moisturized.
I’m using a method I heard about on Traycee Simmons’ youtube channel. One of the things she did to help grow her hair out was wearing it up all week (or Monday through Friday) then down on the weekends. Mostly, I put my hair up in a low bun for work and then maybe a top knot for bedtime. Some days though I like to rock a curly ponytail (which looks like a pony puff by the end of the day but whatever). I use Ouchless hair ties to pull my hair back but always switch to a fabric scrunchie whenever I get home.
On the weekends, I like to wear my hair out because I get so bored after a whole week of buns and ponytails. For the summertime my hair routine has changed as far as my wash n’ go is concerned. Surprisingly my method for styling my wash n’ go is the exact same as my previous summertime wash n’ go post back in 2015! I tell ya, once I find products my hair likes, I stick with ’em, honey.
As for summer activities I’ve been enjoying my garden. Thankfully the majority of my gardening efforts survived the relentless hail storms of the spring. It’s nice to see that our vegetable plants are finally taking off and hopefully we’ll have some hefty end of summer harvests.
I’m looking forward to growing and retaining some inches between now and the fall so stay tuned for more updates on my hair growth journey!
