    Default One Yr Progress/Length

    Now this pic is from before LHC, but I came across a photo of myself from last September. Unfortunately allll that length is going to have to be cut off b/c the relaxed ends are sooo damaged. But before I do, I have to show you guys!

    Sept. 2007

    Unfortunately, I'm going to have to cut the relaxed 6 inches of hair off, but while I still have them I figured I should show them.

    Your hair looks much thicker and more healthy with curls. Very nice! Do you use a texturizer or is it your natural curl?
    Love the glasses btw

    In the middle pic, that's the relaxer I'm growing out. in the bottom pic the curl up by my roots are natural. luckily the stylist who relaxed my hair put it in and washed it right out and didn't let it get too straight. I've been transitioning for a yr and my relaxed ends are a 3a/b and my natural hair is 3b/c/4a (combination). The thickness is actually all fluff unfortunately.

    And thanks! My glasses are my lifeline...If I ever lose them I'm stranded until someone finds them for me...

    Glasses make the face, I say! Finding the right pair really makes a big difference. Who doesn´t want to look like a sexy librarian?

    My thoughts exactly! Lol, I've been wearing glasses since I was 5, I'm so used to them, I can't imagine wearing contacts or having laser surgery--even though those two aren't even options for me

    Your hair has grown so much! Great progress! Are you planning one big chop or going gradually? There is a great article written by Nightshade at the articles section about how to treat damaged hair. She opted for very gradual trims herself.

    Good luck!

    Always behave like a duck -
    keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.

    I too have had glasses since forever, though I have worn mostly contacts outside the home for the last 20 years. I have a square/ablong face and have yet to find glasses that do not make me look stern and humourless. Ah, one can dream, no?.
