Hello to everyone, I see some newbies! And always good to see familiar faces, well... back of the heads of loyal loomies.
It was a difficult winter for me because of the on going divorce, yeesh! Any little bit of stress and I shed, so you can imagine. Gratefully it was not a bitter one, just horribly sad for me. But I do have an update picture to share and pleased that in spite of the ongoing shed, I have bulk. Hanging in there.
My freshly trimmed ends. I trim by the moon, as some of you know, and I could not resist the huge moon on May 5th! It was so beautiful coming up behind the pines. So trim I did. Took it back to just under 30 inches, not by much though. And I am back to spring and autumn trims. Beltane and Samhain. I have a bit of Celtic blood in me. I plan to keep it growing to my bums and with an inch off each year I should still gain my five inches. All this dusting now and then that I've been doing, much too often, keeps me short! Has been helpful though.
I am packing. It has been so difficult to do, but I am in the middle of it all. My daughter and I will be moving back to our old house. She is so happy to be moving back because she loves the house! I am but I'm not, because I love my mountains!
I will check in as I can!
**eta** Somehow I lost my photo.

My hopeful goal is ~
Tresses to my hips and mock faerie-tale endings
... or the real ones someday...
My hair does well with Sweet Almond Oil for everyday oiling,
it's blended with Rose Geranium and Rosemary.
EVOO for deeper treatments.
Every so often I soak my tresses before I wash with a diluted batch
of Napa Valley Oak Aged Organic White Wine Vinegar.
Love Alba's Acai shampoo and conditioner.
When I remember, I massage a little of Desert Lily's aloe vera
gel on my scalp just before a shampooing.
