February '14 Length Check

25 Months Natural

As promised, I'll only be doing length checks every other month. February is my first length check of 2014 and I must admit that I'm not too excited about it. Let's go on and take a look:

December 25 = 99 weeks natural (1 year, 10 months, 25 days)
58 weeks since the BC (1 year, 1 month, 12 days)

March 2 = 105 weeks natural (2 years, 1 month, 2 days)
64 weeks since the BC (1 year, 3 months, 17 days)

So...I found a date calculator! Now I won't have to calculate the time in my head!! As far as a summary, not too much has changed since my last length check:
  • Let me tell you how hard it is to line these pictures up so my face is in the same! Even though it looks like my hair didn't grow any, my hair is growing and I know that. I feel like the growth is for nil because of my split ends. I've gone through so many options about what to do because I want to take care of this NOW!! You don't exactly want to go to someone new when you need a haircut...and I don't have enough time saved up to take off from work right now, so...I'm in a bind! I've even thought about getting a pair of scissors and doing it myself!! For now, I'm just trying my best not to manipulate my hair too much and I'm also trying not to be too frustrated with it when I style it.
  • I finally got an opportunity to use one of the products from the February curlBOX (which I'll be writing a post on later in the week). This first curlBOX was full of conditioners, so I couldn't use them until wash day. The March box has already been sent out, so I'm curious to see what's in it AND hopefully they'll send it to the correct address this time!
  • Other tidbits
    • I'm still dealing with a lot of shedding.
    • I'm trying to drink more water because I know that affects my hair.
    • ...and I had to revert back to coconut oil this past two weeks because my hair was more dry than usual. I attributed this to the wrap lotion I used as setting lotion!
My emotions go up and down about my hair, mostly down. People tell me all the time how great it looks but I just want it to be as healthy as possible and I know it's not. It's getting thicker, but not longer and no matter what I do, it won't be good enough until I get these split ends off. Also, I still have trouble trying to find different ways to wear my hair. I try to do up-do's but they never work out...which is just as discouraging as my split ends.

I'll continue to go through these motions because I need and have to do my hair!! But y'all pray for me!

P.S. - I got another snow day today...Yay!! I love less than 5-day work weeks!!
Y'all have as good a day as I'm having (because I'll still be sleep when this posts :-)!

  3. Hi Mi.
    I'm visiting from our Weekday Mixer to say hello, I'm Angel one of the hosts. I love your hair. I love the Instagram photo of you in the leopard print top, lovely. I'm following you via all your social networks except I can't get GFC to let me follow you. Hope you will come visit me and see if you might want to follow my blog also.

  4. Your hair does look great! Who told you that you had split ends? Just curious...I don't go to a hair dresser that often, maybe twice a year but at my most recent visit, she mentioned a trim ever 6 months would be decent. Seems like you've had your hair trimmed/cut more often than that. Any who, it looks great and don't get discouraged!

  5. Your hair looks shiny and healthy. Don`t give up!

    1. Thanks. I try the best I can but I think once I get these split ends off, the better!


What are you thoughts?!
