For those that don't know, Creamy Crack (CC) is a chemical treatment used to straighten kinky hair. a.k.a. perm or relaxer. Check out Chris Rock's movie, "Good Hair", for more in depth info. Anyhoo---I've been a CC addict for over a decade. Every 6-8 weeks I've put this poison on my head so that I could have straight, silky, blow-in-the-wind hair. Well, I'm sick of all the money, time, effort, and pain it takes for upkeep (this stuff burns people, literally).
So I'm quitting. Now they don't call it CC for nothing---this stuff is addictive. I'm going to go through withdrawals, depression, and possibly even the shakes. At the end of this journey, I hope to not only have stronger, healthier hair; but to also be a stronger, healthier me.
For those that are visual beings:
I'm going to go from this
I'm sure this blog won't just be about hair--I hope I'm an interesting person, so I'm sure there will be day to day that I'll add to make it a little more interesting. I might even post a few pics of my handsome hubby, too!
