In June, I did a compilation of length checks as a summary of where my hair has come from. I got a trim then so I didn't exactly do the normal length check picture. This month, I kept reminding myself to take a length check picture but I've had so much going on that I couldn't retain all the things I needed to do to actually get them done. So, I've had to do my length check picture with the available hair I have at the moment, lol.
I'll show you the last three months worth of pictures to give you an idea of what's going on.
May 28 = 69 weeks natural, 28 weeks since the BC
June 18 (picture on the left) = I got my ends trimmed
72 weeks natural, 31 weeks since the BC
July 30 (picture on the right) = 78 weeks natural (or 1 year 6.5 months...woot!),
37 (a little over 9 months) weeks since the BC
My hair continues to do well and flourish. I can tell it's getting longer because I'm starting to notice JUST A LITTLE hang time! Lol. I'm trying to get it in my head that I probably won't see the growth I'm looking for until around 2, 2.5, or 3 years...so I might as well get comfortable with what I have (not that I haven't been, I guess I'm just trying to rush the process).
I'm still not happy with the shrinkage, but I'm learning to be prepared for it and okay with it now that it's starting to get longer. I've been having some trouble with "rough" ends and frizz. I haven't exactly figured out how to combat this so I've been over moisturizing to compensate.
I'm going to have to figure something out soon, but for now I'll give my hair a B+!
Go hair! Go me!!
