- --♥Lvgurl-feb2011 grazing waist/march 2in cut---
- Previous relaxer: July 2005 - natural for 2.5 years - shoulder length natural
Last relaxer (due to color damage): End of March 2008
Bc'ed down to 2 inches natural: End of June 2008
Goal: to get back to my previous length natural unstretched shoulder length/brastrap length stretched by Dec 2009
July 2005 I decided to go natural and cut out relaxers from my life. By Feb 2007 (19 months later) I had BC'ed to shoulder length unstretched natural from midback length (the longest/healthiest my hairs ever been).
i managed to maintain my hair till Feb 2008 when I had a coloring mishap. I then decided to relax in March and transition once again, but 2 months into the transition i realized why I wanted to go natural in the first place. Relaxed hair wasn't something i even wanted to deal with at all. So end of June 2008 I Bc'ed down to 1-2 inches of hair!
My goal is to get to about 11 inches in 19 months which would be shoulder length natural again by Dec 2009. to pick up where I left off. Wish me luck :)
I'll be sticking with my simple routine which is nothing more than conditioning wash then leave my hair to airdry. Im a believer that less is more for my hair. it seems to thrive and look healthier with the less products that i use.
My long term ultimate goal would be to have waist length or mid back length unstretched natural hair. I have no idea how long it would take to do this or even if ill ever get to this goal. But Im having fun tryin!
eta: As of July 23rd 2008: 2.6 inches of hair at nape
3.5 inches of hair at top
eta: as of Sept 17 2008 hair at nape is 3.6 inches
and hair at top is 4.6 inches
eta: As of Nov 8 2008 hair at nape is 4.75
and hair at top is 5.8 (seems like the top is growing a tad faster than the bottom)
eta: Dec 14 - my hair is long enough now to low ponytail and pigtail without clips.
eta: as of January 28th 2009 - nape hair is 6 inches and hair at top is 7 an 1/8 inches
eta: May 24th 2009 - one yr after the big chop: hair is about 2 inches away from underarm length, I also flatironed this month. next goal bsl for June 2010.
eta: Aug 4th 2009 - made it to underarm length! 1 yr 2 months post big chop
eta: January 7th 2010 - Happy new year! I'm currently 3 inches past underarm and hope to be bsl by june 2010 and hopefully mbl by dec 2010. HHG everyone :)
Holy .... I haven't updated in eons.
I guess I've just been busy with life and letting my hair be. I've also been trying to ignore (not obsess over) my hair and let it do its own thing.
So whats new? Gosh well as most of you know I did big chop down to an inch of hair back in June 2008. However in Feb 2010 I was completely *over it* and decided to relax my hair. At that point I was a couple inches past underarm length. I cut short short bangs into my hair ala Bettie Page. A cute summer style I figured. All along I was just letting my hair be. I have not relaxed my hair since then.
Dec 2010 took me by surprise when I discovered that my hair had grown to within a couple inches from waist. By Feb 2011 I was within half an inch. However because of my initial bigchop back in 2008 my hair had a huge amount of natural layers. After looking at countless waist length photos I decided that I prefered the soft U shape /blunt cut ends at that length. So in March 2011 I asked hubby to just cut off any major layers he saw. Scared the heck out of me giving my husband free reign over my hair like that, but I knew he wasnt going to leave me bald headed, at least he promised not to lol. 2 inches total were cut off in a soft u shape which I love. It almost looks blunt. and in 4 short months I'll have my length back with blunt ends which will make my hair look longer and thicker.
June 2011 will be 3 yrs since the big chop, and I hope to be closing back in on waist length again. By Dec 2011 I hope to be close to hip length with blunt ends..
Happy hair growing :)
