    Default Finally made waist :)

    Feels like it took me FOREVER with my wurly, slow-growing hair, but I made it to waist (I think!) in a little over a year from "almost-bsl" length.

    Here's my starting length in September of 2010:


    And here's my hair length pic now (well, the pic's from the end of October 2011):


    And one more pic of wurlies from the front, just for fun (gotta love the flash for shine! )


    I can't even tell you how many times I got so fed up with my hair that I nearly chopped it all off, but I am SO grateful for this forum for all of the tips and encouragement from you guys!! Thank you SOOOO much!!

    Now on to HIP!!!!

    You call that slow? It took me 3 years to get the same progress! (But then I was growing out heavily bleached and damaged hair.) At this rate you're going to be at TB next year! I love how it looks!

    Beautiful! How do you get those wurls? Do you just air dry and they dry like that, or do you help them along...like damp bun or something? I want my hair to look like that!

    Thank you guys for the generous compliments- you are so sweet!!

    Angeldella, the "secret" to my wurlies (which i learned about on here, so I'm happy to pass this on to you) is a product called "Curl Enhancing Smoothie" by Shea Moisture. http://www.walgreens.com/search/resu...oothie&x=0&y=0 (You can find it for $10 bucks at Walgreens or Target.)

    I apply a small amount to the length of my hair after washing & towel drying, and then scrunch the ends and let air dry. It's made with 100% natural ingredients and it smells SO YUMMY! But be careful of using too much or it could cause build-up quickly. I find I need to clarify once a week or so using this product. But my hair LOVES it!! You have a little bit less of a curl pattern than I do at a 2a, so applying some of this and then pincurling or damp bunning would help achieve wurls like mine. Good luck! <3
