Countdown til my birthday reveal!

Rate this Entry
Yesterday marked one month until my birthday. Don't bother to ask how old I'll be. That's not important. The excitement for my birthday is that I will finally flat iron and see the full length of my hair. Make no mistake about it, this is the longest my hair has EVER been. So to say that I'm excited is an understatement!

For the first quarter of this year, I've been neglecting my hair and tending to more important life issues. But since April, I've been getting back on track with my taking care of my hair, tweaking my main reggie as needed. A few nights ago, I got a little anxious and, while oiling my hair, decided to stretch some of my hair to get an idea of where I am. Here's that sneak peek:

Seeing that I have some hair past the WL mark has me over the moon! Now, I plan to do all that I can to encourage growth and retain what I have in anticipation of my birthday reveal. Whatever the length, it's a blessing and more than I could have ever imagined for myself before beginning my HHJ, and I am thankful!

That said, I have 30 days of growing. I'm not sure if I'll be using my sulfur-based growth mix as I'm testing a new, non-sulfur mix that I've made. We'll see how the first 2 weeks go and take it from there.

Here's a comparison from my last length check and my current sneak peek.

I'm expecting a wonderful surprise on my birthday. Stay tuned as I countdown to June 23rd!
