Thought For Life

People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates. ~Thomas Szasz, "Personal Conduct," The Second Sin, 1973

Blow Dry...

Piled with heat protectant!! I blow dried my hairr ( mainly because we borrowed a blow dryer and won't get one in another few years)
Maybe next time i'll get a better picture XD

First flat iron with Blow dry

We blow dried and flat ironed her hair and as usual it didn't come out as we wanted lol. Her hair is super thick and you can see it has quite a bit of layers.

If you guys have any tips for us please comment! we're still trying to find a way to flat iron which will give us different results.

living with my Dermatitis


With two strand twists, it was so much easier to wash my hair every morning. Whenever i had to go out i would either re-twist the front or for a really special occasion re-twist my entire hair.
My cap also became my closest friend. It covered my forehead rash and kept my hair down enough to cover my neck.

This pic is really recent, my face has cleared up but my neck still has a bit of dried up rash. But this has been my basic way of hiding the rash.

Seborrheic Dermatitis
By Mayo Clinic staff

Seborrheic dermatitis (seb-o-REE-ik der-muh-TI-tis) is a common skin disorder that mainly affects your scalp, causing scaly, itchy, red skin and stubborn dandruff.

Seborrheic dermatitis can also affect your face, upper chest, back and other areas of your body that have many oil (sebaceous) glands.

Seborrheic dermatitis doesn't affect your overall health, but it can be uncomfortable and cause embarrassment when it develops on visible parts of your body. It isn't contagious, and it's not a sign of poor personal hygiene. Seborrheic dermatitis tends to recur, but you may be able to manage flare-ups by recognizing its signs and symptoms and by using a combination of self-care steps and over-the-counter (nonprescription) medications.

Dermatitis (cont'd)

I had started feeling a uncomfortably itchy a long time before i finally went to see a general practitioner.After being treated for a week with what the General Practitioner had prescribed, which was an anti dandruff and anti itch shampoo along with some pills ( names i can't remember), The doctor referred me to a skin doctor who then said i had Seborrheic dermatitis, a common scalp and facial condition that often causes dandruff.

So by this time, it had traveled to my face and neck because of my incessant scratching. I could stand it along my edges and the back of my neck because my hair was able to cover those areas... but then my face was filled with the rash and i had to attend lessons! and of course people noticed which made it more difficult to concentrate on anything else besides this rash. I also was told to wash my hair everyday with the shampoo! Wash natural hair every day! twice a day! so hair was pretty much in a mess all the time. After a while i only washed the visibly affected areas during the week and my entire head on the weekends.
If you think you'll be grossed out, maybe you shouldn't look lol...


Dermatitis is one of my reasons for not blogging in such a long time..the other is final exams, but lets just talk about dermatitis.
