I just noticed that my first hair-picture is from April '07, so I decided to show you the growth of one year!

Here you are:

I am sorry about the different image sizes, don't know how to change it.

Also, the left picture is not a good shot, but my straight-from-behind-shots start at october or november of '07 (I just didn't want to wait so long)...

I hope you enjoy it!

Very beautiful! It grew a lot and it does look a lot healthier- nice shine, very glossy looking.

Congrats on your 1 year mark!

Beautiful.

So thick and shiny.

Are you using Henna? If so, what's your recipe?

I think the difference in shine is caused by using two different cameras... also, the pic from april 07 was taken without flash, the one from this year is with...

Thanks for your nice comments!

Edit: Hairbear, yes, I use henna. Mostly I just mix some Henna (bought at the pharmacy, so no brand) with black tea and apply it. Once, I used red wine, that gives a darker red tone, but for we don't have a lot of unconsumable red wine, I didn't repeat it.
For preventing the orange-ish shimmer, I use black tea (really strong), which I pour through my hair and let it sit for a while... pretty drying, though. I hope this answered your question?!

It's looking beautiful! I didn't realize from the second picture that you henna-- it really doesn't have that orange-y, shimmery glow that is common. It looks really nice, a subtle reddish cast! Great growth, too!

Thanks again for the nice comments!

Yes, I do use henna... to prevent my hair from getting orange (or to save them if they are...) I use pretty strong black tea, that's why the henna colour isn't that pronounced...

Looks amazing! What is routine?

I'm still trying to work one out...
at the moment:
- Washing every 3-4 days
- Combing with a seamless plastic comb (it's a special comb, so it doesn't make my hair fly) with about 1cm in between the teeth
- Wearing hair up daily
- Using conditioner after shampooing
- Sometimes I put a bit of jojoba oil in the ends, but mostly I am too lazy for it... Also, sometimes I massage shea butter in the braid
- Quite hard water here, I only clarify once in a while with ketoconazol-shampoo for dandruff
- Aaaand... a satin pillowcase :cheese:

Hope that helps!
