My hair has not seen a substantial amount of growth since February because back in June, I took off about 2 inches or so. I'm pretty solidly at 23" now, and I don't think I will need to trim for the rest of the year because my hair's in really really good shape.
So I guess I'd better revise my hair goals for the end of the year..originally I'd planned to grow to 27"...though uh...now that doesn't look so feasible! I'd be really happy if I were at a good 25", which I believe, is BSL for me.
Comparison between February of this year and this month. Notice the texture change and the gradual disappearing black dye.
I'm still really happy with my hair though. It's in good shape and is growing well. The only thing I want to change about it is the color- the red is building up and is a bit darker than I'd like. It's beautiful and definitely red, but I think I would be happier if it were a more orangey copper color. I dunno. We'll see.
I've also noticed my texture is looking more and more like 1c rather than 1b. I'm washing daily with a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioning, but it could also be due to the fact that I wear my hair up almost constantly and my hair just loves to hold a curl or wave from anything. We'll see how it continues to grow, though!
Until next time...
