View Full Version : 1 year anniversary! Geez, time does fly when you're having fun..

One of my very first thoughts today when I woke up was "hmm.. Didn't I join LHC last year around this time..?" And when I was awake enough to actually do something I came here to check and was shocked to find out that it was EXACTLY one year ago when I joined. So yay, happy anniversary me & my hair :). Here's a pic from October 18th 2008:


And here's a picture I just took today (October 18th 2009) before writing this post:


Even though I planned not to trim at all this year I've actually trimmed quite a lot (around 6 inches altogether I think). During summer time my ends suffered quite a bit and I also neglected them too much, shame on me, so I needed to trim. I also wanted to get rid of my fairytale ends (my hair is very eager to naturally grow into that shape), so two weeks ago I took matters into my own hands (or should I say took scissors into my own hands) and cut off about 2,5 inches. That was a pit painful, but I think my hair looks better now :).

My hair care routine hasn't changed: I still use shampoo bars+ACV+honey to wash and rinse my hair and in addition to them I've introduced myself to various Indian herbs, I use oils everyday and do deep oil treatments at least once a week and don't do almost any heat styling (I've blow dried my hair 3 times and straightened it 3 times during this whole year). Oh, the most important thing: I still dye my hair with henna.

All in all, it's been a good year and I can't wait to see what my hair looks like on my next anniversary!

Pretty curls!

October 18th, 2009, 07:56 AM
You really need a new user name, because all I can see is perfect red curls and not a hint of frizz to be found. Happy Anniversary!

Hey happy one year anny! Your hair is beautiful and it has made improvements, although it wasn't bad when you started either! Looking good... keep on growing :)

Very pretty! Congrats on your Anniv and growth over the last year!

October 18th, 2009, 11:20 AM
Oh my goodness, that is amazing hair! I absolutely love your curls. If I had some like those I'd probably waste so much of my day sproinging them. Yes, I'm easily amused.

Congratulations on your anniversary. Your henna shade is absolutely gorgeous.
It is so shinny and healthy! I second a new user name. Happy growing:)

October 18th, 2009, 11:29 AM
Just.... WOW!! You have my drem hair! Red, curly and beautiful. :-)

October 18th, 2009, 11:59 AM
You gave my dream hair!!!! Alas, I will never have spirals like you...
Your hair is really beautiful!

haha... I posted without reading the thread above me.... yeah, what she said :D

Those are some of the most gorgeous thick curls I've ever seen, you are simply too hard on yourself RedFrizz you've got whatever frizziness you have under control! And I also love your color, its such a beautiful shade of red!

Thank you so much you guys, you made my (otherwise somewhat gloomy and rainy) day! :D Haha, I think I'm sticking with my user name, it reminds me of what my hair used to be and that I never want to go back to that (getting chills here just thinking about it. And not the good kind..).

And Stephichan, trust me, as I am too very easily amused, during my work day I spring my curls to the point that they start to relax too much and I end up having these weird wavy (and therefore much longer) parts in my hair. Looks oh, so nice..

October 18th, 2009, 01:20 PM
Happy Anniversary :cheer: Looking great :D

October 18th, 2009, 01:47 PM
What lovely, thick curls you have - happy anniversary :D

October 18th, 2009, 03:52 PM
Love love love the color and the curls. Happy Anniversary!! :flowers:

October 18th, 2009, 04:20 PM
your hair is absoutly breath taking, color...curls everything...congrats and on your 1 year

October 18th, 2009, 06:30 PM
Your henna looks beautiful on your hair! I can definitely see a lot of growth even after your trimming! I know sometimes we have to trim to do something good for our hair, even though it can be hard knowing we will lose some growth too. It really looks wonderful! Happy Anniversary! :)

October 18th, 2009, 06:35 PM
Let me get this straight: you trimmed about 6 inches and still got that much visible growth? Color me green with envy! Beautiful; lucky you.

October 18th, 2009, 07:48 PM
Congrats on your anniversary! :thud: Wow!!! I love those curls, and that's some great length progress. :D
