I joined here December 2013 with a short pixie cut, in fact the shortest my hair has ever been, after cutting from plaitnum white bsl+ length. At that point I'd been bleach free for six months and two months colour free.

Taken at the end of December a month after cutting it.

That first year I experimented with oils and worked on getting back to fortnightly washings. Also no colouring!

I had had one small hem shaping mid way through the year, to blend the around ear and nape pixie weirdness. No length came off.

I almost made it to apl!

But by January 2015 I was at apl stretched, and had a less than quarter inch trim to start the year off ahead of the no trimming challenge.

Made it to apl wurly in March!

And managed to stretch my washes to once a month, and found that my scalp is amazingly better off, I've always had bad dandruff, but now it's almost flake free, and the build up that would appear a few days after washing is dramatically reduced and doesn't show up for weeks now. And as a plus, I'm much less itchy!!

I decided to start lightening my hair again, as I was feeling unhappy with my colour and didn't feel like 'me'.

Sometime between September and October I made bsl stretched! And took the plunge with some super fine plaitnum foils!

And just made it to bsl wurly for December and my two year anniversary!
