Rating: 6 votes, 4.83 average.
So, this is what it's all about. For those who haven't watched me grow my hair online, here's a recap of my first year of healthy haircare.

First month: Newbie just learning about hair care. I started with a freshly layered cut. Obvious newbie trying to figure out how to take pics. Dates are 1/2, 2/2, 3/2 & 3/19.


Main protective style


Still not great with taking pics but, ah well...


Thru mid June


End of June (learned to stop using the darn flash)


July caught me looking a lil chunky. D'oh!


I think I'm showing 3 months of ng here. I did a thread with a ton of these ng pics. I'm 4b/a


Claimed MBL


Mid Nov Sneak Peek


Year End 2010 Progress (Yeah, my fingers in the middle pic look retarded but, that's me trying to grab a section but the camera snapped. And the last pic, I fanned my hair so that the layers are visible)



Onward to 2011 goal of HL. Hoping to reach this by June but, I'm also looking to trim away some layers so, we'll see.

Here I am in my winter PS
Motown Tress LG-61, 2-in1 1/2 wig/ponytail

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

My reggie is in my blog here. Thanks for all the compliments and kind words. Y'all know me. And you know I don't mind sharing any info that I may have. We're all in this together. Wishing us all a bountiful 2011!

    My next official length check will be in 3 days, when I flat iron my hair for my birthday. My 2011 goal is full hip length. I'm hoping to see hip length this summer. We'll see. I'm anxious to see where I am officially too.

    I partially airdry my hair with my usual leave ins (spray mix of aloe juice/Infusium23/water, NTM Silk Touch Leave in sealed with castor/wheatgerm/evoo mix) and then I use fold-top sandwich baggies over my bun. I use a ponytail holder on top of the baggy to keep it secure.

    Hope that helps.
