Hair Update

Here is a hair update of where I started, where I’ve been, where I am and where I am going with my hair journey… this is a recap of what we lost on Journeytobeauthair.

Starting length

I started my journey in November 2014 at neck length bone straight and chemically damaged  hair.

I then started nursing  my hair to health weekly. I also slowly by surely became a little product junkie because I believed the more products you have the better *Giggles*. Within a month or two, my hair started to show some progress it looked healthier and thicker

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Setback

Hair Update

After box braids

In Jan 2015 my setback began… I was not aware of this at the time. One of my hair care sister’s pointed it out but I was still  blind to it silly me. I then got a long term protective style in March. In April when I undid it, the setback grew worse and I was forced to trim which took me to ear length

 

 

 

 

Big Chop 

Hair Update

Big Chop

In May 2015, I decided to big chop. reason being my hair at the back was way shorter than my hair in front and it pretty much disturbed the OCD part of me. When I chopped my hair I had New growth and texlaxed ends when I went to dust at the barber, I ended up with just natural hair so I started over from there and started growing it

 

 

 

I grew my natural hair for about 4 months or so then texlaxed again and I was on Neck Length with fully texlaxed healthy and thick hair. Since then I have had 1 more texlax and I am currently exactly 12 weeks post 

Here are a few more progress pics

And that just about wraps up my hair. Up next I will update the protective styles I have tried so far.

I hope this post sums up my hair sufficiently. Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

With Love,

Lebo

    Your hair is much thicker now since the texlaxing. It was a blessing in disguise to have your setback because now you were able to start over and the hard work is paying out.

      Thank you Lebo… It really was hey. Sometimes I felt like I went back a few steps but If you ask me if I would do it again? I really would.
