It's been a long odyssey to get to this point. From prejudice coming from everywhere (family, college, the streets, society in general) to my mom cutting my hair in a bout of rage. But, all that is behind now. I can say it's been 2 years since I last fed the barber, MWAHAHAHAHA! (I feel for him, I was nice income every month =D)

Now, what everyone wants to see, the pictures! *cheese*

Freshly cut, October 08

Cosmic Ant, you have some great hair!:D That is seriously a lot of growth for only two years. Your pictures are making me have a nostalgic moment too. Your hair looks a lot like my dad's used to (before he started keeping his head shaved), especially the one of your hair braided. I got to braid his hair one time when I was little and it looked just like that.:)

Sorry for the delayed reply, but I lack the means to communicate from my house, a.k.a. I have no PC T_T

Thank you all for the nice comments. k you gals and guys liked it ^_^

@Growth
PurpleAshes always said I had great growth, but I never really gave it much thought =P Lucky me =D

@Cristo Comments
Happy you liked it =P I was trying to prove to my mother, whos pretty religious, that crazy people arent the only ones with long hair =)

Your hair looks a lot like my dad's used to (before he started keeping his head shaved), especially the one of your hair braided.

Hopefully it will be a succesful attempt =D Good luck with that!


Good growth in 2 years; congratulations! But I didn't see a spider.

Wonderful shine and waves!

I don't know what your goal is for curls vs length, but several of your pictures made me wonder if you aren't really at least 3b. (The first, 08, has amazing root-level curls, and several others also have very strong curls... the It one among them.)

Not knowing what your routine actually is, I wonder whether a very slight change might not make you a curly wonder! (I don't think you really are 2c/3a.... Hope that's okay -- and for what it's worth, I covet your curl potential!!!)

I only brush everything into a ponytail. It's been a while since I just let them air dry, so I'm not really certain of how much difference it'll make. I'll make sure to do it some time soon, and post some pics so I can be hairtyped=D


Stunning hair, Im gobsmacked!

Glad that you like it =D I agree with both of y'all =p


Have you been trimming at all???

Well, just recently I've started to S & D (never thought it could be so much fun cutting those pesky fairy knots =p) but other than that, no. I don't get splits, so trimming isn't really necessary.
