View Full Version : 1 Year Anniversary

May 2nd, 2010, 10:25 PM
One year ago, I was an unemployed college student; on break for a couple weeks. I needed something to 'research'. I had also previously lost a large amount of hair to SD. I had dandruff, itchy scalp, 'tangly' hair and was generally unhappy with my long but bad condition hair.

This was where I started:


In this picture I was really TBL, DBF just hadn't perfected his picture taking.

One year later:


Another view:


While it doesn't look like I have grown much, I learned a multitude of valuable information on caring for my hair!

I can now do this:


And this:


Whereas before, I couldn't even braid my own hair!

So thank you LHC and all your awesome members! :cheese:

(PS. can anyone tell DBF is much taller than me? He takes pictures from too high an angle!)

Thank you everyone! I have been trimming since I have an old layer that is around waist-hip length currently and I want that gone. I've had 2 or 3, half inch trims since joining. I don't think I'm at terminal though, since I get consistent grow of .3 to .5 inches per month. I hope terminal is atleast knee!
