15 Months NaturalIt's a little past time for my length check, but it's still April so we're going to roll with it anyway.
You all know how I'm longing for some hang time, right?! So, I go to do my length check and I'm wondering, where is all my hair??!! This might seem like a silly question, but it seems as if my hair has stopped growing. Here is my April length check:
March 24 = 60 weeks natural, 19 weeks since the BC
April 29 = 65 weeks natural, 24 weeks since the BC
I know you see what I see!! I've lost length! Let's compare 'fros!!
This whole month I've been thinking that my hair wasn't as long and I had convinced myself that I was losing my mind, but indeed I am not!! (Look at the progress I had been making here and here!!)
Then I remembered this:
Last month I got a "trim". It was a drastic trim because I wasn't getting my hair trimmed regularly. I kept saying I needed to get it trimmed and even blogged about it a few times, but never went through with it. I ended up going about 5 months without a trim. That's right!! I hadn't had my hair trimmed since my BC...LOL. I think the BC was such a dramatic experience for me that I wouldn't let my cosmetologist get near my head with a pair of scissors for a while. I've learned my lesson. Never again will I go that long without getting my hair trimmed. I lost good length during that trim and I'm definitely feeling it now. Losing length is not helping me reach my goal of getting some hang time!!
I'm sure there will be other lessons to learn throughout this natural hair journey of mine.
What are some lessons you've had to learn the hard way??
