Grr. I'm miffed that I have to write this again. :( Re-do!

On a happier note, I'm really glad that I can join the ranks of those who've had hair anniversaries! I always got jealous when I saw various threads related to this topic. Now, it's finally my turn. :D

Even though I joined TLHC back in April 2012, I actually started to grow my hair out since the summer of 2010. I had a pixie cut for a little over a month and I was just not into it. :/ Maybe again in the future, but we shall see. Since then, I've been growing out my hair. I made the serious change of my haircare routine during March 2012.

1. I stopped using my hair-dryer. I only now use it maybe 2-3 times a month, or just whenever it's necessary.
2. I introduced my hair to coconut oil! I use it as an overnight deep treatment. I use it once every week to every other week.
3. I've switched my hair products up the wahzoo. From sulfate-free, to Mane N' Tail, to now Yes to Carrots shampoo and conditioner. I think this one's the winner.
4. I'm finally getting the hang of just washing my hair when it feels like it. Maybe every day to every other. I do take a break on the weekend. Baby powder helps.

Alright. Enough yapping! Here comes the pictures.

Here's my pixie cut back in the summer of 2010:

I got my hemline trimmed for a more blunt look last month. I would've been BSL, but oh well! Bye bye velcro ends.

It's really been a long journey, even though this year has flown by! I can't wait to see where this year takes me. Thanks for letting me share this with you all! :D

kittengirl: I hope we can reach waist length during this year then! :D

PixxieStix: Thanks! And it's definitely a 'trail and error' situation, as I'm sure everyone understands. I can only hope that my hair will like these products for a while.

MiaBeth: Thanks! :D

I hope so! I'm about 1-2 inches from BSL but I have a rather high waist so it shouldn't be too far behind! ;) Isn't it great not to have all those horrible incredibly short pixie layers anymore?!

I'm going to have to agree with everyone else, and say how healthy your hair looks. You have a lovely thick hemline as well.

Congrats on one year!

I started my journey in december 2009 with chin-legnth hair when straightened, and are now maybe an inch or two past APL. How did your hair grow so fast? It looks amazing, and very shiny. I am jealous, lol. :)

I think the biggest booster for my hair growth was dropping the heating tools. I'm a bad person- I never used a heat protectant. D: I'm pretty sure this did the trick, plus my hair genes from my parents! Both of their hair grows ridiculously fast.
