View Full Version : Teesha's 1 year LHC anniversary

May 8th, 2008, 01:05 AM
I didn't take many photos, starting in September to take "defult LHC hands on waist" shoots, if you wanna see more photos just look at my albums.
I ruined my hair september 2005 from hip length thick virgin hair to fried dyed (repeatedly) blowfried layers up to BSL. Then i started looking at websites to better care for my hair. From 2005-2007 i maintained it at BSL and continued trimming out the damage and takeing care of my hair a little better.
Here is May 06 a year later still chopping off damage slowly: (not a proper LHC shot, accidental!) notice the thinning on my right side.
May 07- still cutting out damage and layers. I found LHC a few months before this. This is a "hair on purpose" shot.
September 07 finally reached a some-what stable point.
Many trims later....henna, and better hair care:
Who knew i had waves? Thanks LHC! (hair is frizzy because i just washed it)
April- one of my good hair days!

taken a few days ago, showing STILL how much damage i've got to trim out! Only 15cm of virgin regrowth. Glowing ends are henna over chemical dye. The next 12cm are dyed once and treated much better then the rest of the hair. In 06 i started to look after my hair (stopped the repeated dyeing and blowfrying etc)

Here are photos from TODAY!, my head was held to the side a bit:

I just recently did a 1cm trim. I am aiming for at least TB length virgin tresses! I wish knee would look good on me but we will see how good it looks at TB first!

I'd like to take this oppurtunity to say thank you to all who gave me wise words of advice and encouragment! It really is the best community ever, thank you so much for all your kind words from the bottom of my heart!

LHC opened my up to the world of indian herb washing, BBB, using correct combs, HAIR TOYS, more updos and wisdom that i could have never imagined! And most of all friendships :)

Sorry my hair isn't behaving well today i had it up weird so the ends flick weirdly. Soon my hair will be long enough to be waist length when wavy!

Thank you all for helping my sindged hair!

Emme76 - thank you!
Gilly - it has a bit, but i still don't feel like it has a lot, i don't think even henna can save my hair after all i did to it. I remember my virgin hair was so slippery it barely held curls or an updo...not i don't have that issue i suppose!
PatGear - i don't think my hair grows fast...its probably because i'm just plain short!
rhosyn_du- thank you for your kind words! I like how henna makes my hair glow in sunlight!
Faepirate - yes it is, i will be maintaining at this length for a while, i need to trim out more damage to get mroe blunt ends like i used to.
DavidN- its a pleasure seeing you around a lot its a joy to read your posts! Your such a lovely person DavidN!
florenonite - thank you! I need to be reminded sometimes!
littlemiss - i hope so! Thank you
Amoretti - thank you Amoretti! Your hair is something to aspire to! I can't wait till all my hair is virgin again!
Nat242- I am have some progress but the photos don't really do it justice, also i think the cones were hiding a lot of the damage.

chloeishere - thank you! I should post up the photo of my close up sindged hair! haha, that is something to compar too...
AprilElf - thank you! I hope i continue to strive to achieve, not so much length this time i think the condition and ends need more imrpoving so more trims for me!

May 9th, 2008, 01:38 AM
Happy First Anniversary:cheese::cheer::disco::bottomsup:

May 9th, 2008, 02:09 AM
yay hair twin Teesha!

You're my inspiration for waves and length, as our hair is so similar. It's looking so healthy and the hemline thick.

Waist - way to go! My trims mean I'm gonna need a while to catch up, but hope to have hair that looks like yours soon.

And your waves - I really like the way they hang, especially at the ends. Looks wild and natural, yet sexy.

You grow, girl! :cheese:

Congratulations to you tiny_teesha on your first year's anniversary here. http://www.cheesebuerger.de/images/smilie/musik/f025.gif
You have made some great progress and your hair looks lovely . :flower:

May 9th, 2008, 05:34 AM
nastasska -Thanks! Love all those smilies!
Katze - Awww thank you so much i am so flattered to be at least one persons inspiration! The hemnline isn't really that thick, i mean i didn't edit the photo but it looks fluffier then it really is ;). I am going to maintain it here for a long time so you will most definately catch up i think! have you grown out all your highlights? Haha!!! You make me laugh! i do love my waves, before LHC i thought i was a 1a!!!! Who knows....maybe i am as this hair si hennad and damaged, my virgin hair seemed a lot straighter! I hope not i love waves! My hair is been going J shape lately, which makes it look shorter, which is why i hate it, haha. I really love how far your hair has come along and i loooove your natural colour! :)
Alley Cat- thank you, thank you!!

May 9th, 2008, 08:53 AM
Well maybe the waves will stay stronger in the future ;)

I have always been 1a/1b I think but I classified myself as one Fall last year...still not sure if its correct now.:o

May 9th, 2008, 09:15 AM
Congrats on your 1 yr. :flower:

Your hair looks great! Good luck growing!
