I've been here a year! I know I lurk more often than I post, but I figured I'd share my year of growth.

I've learned a lot from all of you guys, so thanks!

I've also gone from shampoo bars to no poo to Suave Daily Clarifying once a week or so (I don't know why you'd use it daily, really...) and the matching conditioner instead of vinegar rinses. I didn't like oiling. I wear it up almost every day. I've probably trimmed a total of an inch in microtrims, and I S&D whenever it starts to bother me, which is pretty much whenever I wear it in braids.

Anyway...my hair has made a LOT of growing progress this year! Here are the before and after pictures:

Wow, your hair looks great. So you just do one wash per week with the Suave Clarifying, nothing in between?

Thanks for all the nice compliments, everyone!

Yep, pretty much. I'm not even sure it's as often as once a week, honestly. I just wash it when it starts to feel too dirty, which I'm pretty sure is about once a week. The ends tend to get rinsed out when I shower during the week if I have my hair down, and I sometimes use the conditioner on non-shampoo days.
