View Full Version : My Curls 5 Years Later - A belated post

November 23rd, 2012, 04:29 PM
Hello All!

It has been far too long.

I recently hit my 5 year LHC anniversary in August of this year and I would like to create a post to display my progress in that time. My journey has definitely had its ups and downs, but recently, more former than the latter. Since last January I have committed to a no-trim hair care routine, but in October, I had to cave in and trim certain curls because particular areas of my scalp grow faster than others and my uneven ends were very noticeable and bothering me. So... without further adieu here are my progress photos. The first was taken on the day I decided to grow out my hair in August 5th, of 2007 and the second was taken on Thanksgiving Day 2012.

Enjoy and Happy Growing!

Hi Sofoulee! I've not seen any posts from you in *ages*. Five year anniversary? How time flies. Your hair has certainly grown. Isn't it funny how some patches of scalp seem to grow hair longer and faster? I have a small group of hairs that are several inches longer than any other hairs, it doesn't make any sense! Since I always wear my hair up the uneven length doesn't matter for me. As usual, your curls are just charming, and so nice you don't straighten your hair like so many curly hair folks do. :)

Your hair looks fantastic, Sofoulee! I've been around the LHC for almost as long as you, and I remember you as hair-inspiration even back then! As a fellow curly girl, I know how tricky it can be to care for curls when they become that long, and yours look awesome :) A very happy 5th anniversary to you!

Happy anniversary! :D Love the last shot, with one eye staring right through you - and the lovely curls, of course.

Wow! your eye in the last shot:D and your hair is beautiful I wish I had this curly hair.

Sooooooooo pretty! Beautiful hair!

Wow, that is pretty! Inspiration!! I cut off my hair yesterday from below shoulder (about 22 inches) to an almost pixie cut. Keratin treatment completely wiped my curls away so I decided to cut it all off and start anew! Seeing you gives me something to look forward to!! What's your curly hair routine?

Beautiful! I love them!
