Hello everyone! I just had my one year anniversary for treating my hair nicer, so I thought I'd post some progress pictures. These pictures are almost one year apart. I think my hair has grown about five or six inches since last year (I can't remember the actual length when I started), and I've cut about an inch off overall in that time (about 1/4" every three months). Other than that, my hair is definitely more healthy.

One year ago: the picture is a little fuzzy

A couple of days ago:

And somehow my dog, Sam, ended up in both shots.

Edit: Hopefully fixed some technical difficulties

That's strange. I uploaded the image from an old url. Perhaps it isn't working anymore. I'll check it when I get home. The image is saved on a different computer. If you just can't wait :) the image is located in my first started thread. Then again, maybe it's not working there either.

BTW, thanks for the compliments :):):)

Beautiful long hair and may I just say, your waist line is so small. I’m working hard to get mine back in shape again after having two kids :)

I've edited the first post, so hopefully the pictures work appropriately now.

:blushing: Oh my goodness! Thank you all soooo much. It really means a lot to me to see that y'all like my hair :happydance: I've been trying very hard over the last year to figure out how to work with my hair. Still not all the way there, but I think I've made significant progress.

And yes Tini, I definitely have a very small waistline :) 24 inches last time I checked (I'm 5'6"). I tried to gain weight for the longest time, but it just wouldn't work. I finally just decided that this is the way I'm built, and I can't do much to change it. It really sucks trying to find clothes that fit the way I want them to, but I suppose most people have that problem no matter what their size.

Thank you so much! Lol, I showed a friend from work my before and after pictures, and she said that my before looked like Anne Hathaway's hair in The Princness Diaries before her makeover. I agreed and told her I thought it alo resembled Hermione's hair. Either way, lots of frizz.

Thanks! I'll be sure to pass all the love on to little Sam.

I can't wait to see what my hair looks like a year from now. I plan on more frequent trims. I kind of planned on maintaining at waist, but since I'm super wavy, I wasn't sure if I wanted to maintain at wavy waist or pulled straight waist. So, I'm thinking that once I get to a pulled straight waist length, I'll cut off half of the growth a month. All of this to grow out dye, layers, and heat damage.

Edited because I typed this on my phone and my silly fingers slipped and decided to submit the post halfway through.
