Back to the Basics...

Hey World,

It's been a minute. I've been reading through my past posts and I noticed something.

About two months into my hair journey (December 2008), I started jumping on so many bandwagons. Trying new products, new techniques, etc.

I had experienced some good growth during that time and got greedy. I wanted more!

Now, it's May. I have some good news. I REACHED SHOULDER LENGTH BY MY MAY 2009 GOAL!


Now, bad news. My stylist chopped an inch off ("You have damaged ends."). It was the day before my graduation and my usual stylist had mis-scheduled me for the week before so I had to find somebody... QUICK! The only place was JCPenney's. I spent a ridiculous amount of money on the relaxer and trim... but, hey, I wanted to look cute for my graduation and it was last minute!

So, now I'm about a half inch about my shoulders... and I'm going back to the basics. No bandwagons, no extra products and techniques.

Cute pic! Have you noticed any growth since your last relaxer and cut?
