Wow that is wonderful and so inspiring. I love to see that hair can come back from bleach :) Your unbleached hair is amazing It's scary to think how much damage bleach can do.

Haha! Thank you so much!! I had a nice little growth spurt after I started taking Folic Acid once a day, I was getting almost an inch and a half for about 3 or 4 months there!!

Im amazed by how different it is too, it makes me so darn happy!
Thank you. :)

I know right? It was seriously awful.
I still have VERY little of that damage on my ends. I mean, its almost non-existent. But man I am glad that bleach crap is over with. Haha

Your hair looks phenomenal! Way to go on the patience and care, it's very inspiring!

And I think most of us are familiar with that canary yell phase :) I was fortunate enough to be dating a completely color blind DBF at the time so he never figured it out, at least!

I never really thought it was inspiring... Haha. :o

Bahahaa. Most men are completely oblivious to our hair, unless its awful or we point it out.

It's funny. I think most people go through a phase when they want to bleach their hair. I Made mine blue when I was a freshman in highschool. (i've always had pretty long hair, so I looked like a mermaid.) But it's nice when you grow out of it and look back and think, "god, that was so dumb." lol :p

Bahaha. While on one hand I definitely agree with the "Dumb" thing, on the other hand.... I am SO glad I did it. I wouldnt have become so conscious of how I treat my hair, I wouldnt have realized how much I want it long.
So while yes, it was very stupid... I wouldnt change it. Good things eventually came from it. :)

All I can say is-Wow. Its gorgous! So I guess I have hope. My longest layer is two inches above bsl and I just got my hair colored to cover up my bleach highlights. One last color, more toward my natural ash color, to help grow out the bleach. My hair isnt fried or anything but it is damaged. I am micro-trimming, using no heat, no cones, organic S&C, and oiling. But there are days I just look at it and think-yuck. I love stories like yours;) They make me smile. It makes me realize that my hair will get better with time and patience. It took you two years but loot at you now! Amazing. That will be me too one day!:)

I dont know if you did any kind of big chop at all... But I have to tell you, that was the smartest thing I did. If I hadnt, I would have lost a lot of length in the long run because of splits.
Everything you are doing now is amazing, but if you ever feel like you really need a TRIM... Do it. Trust me, you will end up loving yourself for it. :)
Glad I could make you smile.

Girl, your hair looks AMAZING! I love the dark color! That's the color I wish I could have, I look washed out when I go too dark though. And your growth...just wow. I have damaged ends on my hair which I'm hoping henna will be able to salvage...I don't want to chop any length off because to me it just seems like my hair is taking forever to grow after having my first child. You said you had a good amount of growth after taking folic acid...is this typical?

And off topic...are you playing WoW in the first pic you posted?! If so...kek >.>

Henna should definitely help!
And yea, Ive got some native american in me... I get tan pretty easily so I never look too white. :P
Ive heard its pretty typical to get growth with Folic Acid. Ive also read that Folic Acid is highly recommended to take while pregnant or trying to get pregnant to help prevent genetic disorders of some types.
Plus its just good for you!

And yes... Yes I am playing WoW... :D


LOVE the dark hair. My loved ones (mostly BF) are also annoyed by my obsession with my hair but I could care less the payoff is worth it :)

Oh yeah... Every time someone makes fun of me or gets outwardly annoyed by my obsession, I just grin. Its entirely worth it. I love my hair and I get compliments on it all the time, even from people who have been annoyed. lol

And yes, definitely do. I found it to be worth it. Im still taking it too.
