I started my hair journey on March 17, 2012 (I had to correct my Vision Board, it said May). It was a casual start but not really knowing that there were steps that I could actually take to achieve my goals. I knew I was tired of “doing the same old thing wishing for better results”. My hair has been thick most of my life and has been long from time to time and most recently in 2009. I reuined it in may ways but mostly by relaxing every 4 weeks, coloring and flat ironing almost daily. SMH!
I put my foot down in March and I started searching the web for helpful infomation. By April I started to watch allot of YouTube (and I still do). By May I was all over the web and U started reading blogs. I also turned into a product junkie with a closet FULL of hair products. Tons of conditioners, many oils, new tools…you know what I’m talking about. I started documenting my progress with “Day One” a journal app, “Daily picture” app and plenty of pictures. The picture below is from March 17th (left side) and August 11th (right side) – 5 months of progress. September will be my 6 month mark. I feel like I’ve come a long way. I know we all grow at different speeds and I know we all retain our ends differently. If I keep this up I should make my goal and then some by the end of the year.
Thanks again for the comments, the encouraging words, the “Likes” on Facebook etc. It’s those reminders and cheers from people who are really interested in my journey and who are in simular situations that mean allot to me. The extra boost from you goes a LONG way!! Thank you for your support!
