One Year Anniversary!

Yay! October 17th was my one year hair journey anniversary.

I've learned a lot, made some mistakes but overall seen some growth and thickness! Exactly what I wanted. I actually was hoping to have longer hair, but a beautician chopped an inch off and I've had some breakage issues. Most say healthy hair growth is 0.5 inches a month. All in all, I've gained 6 inches of thick, healthy hair, so I'm technically on track.

I'm officially SL and my hair has swang (thank you Roux Porosity)!

Great progress. I just did a big snip and chopped of 2 inches after a 6 month stretch. I hope to keep all 6 inches of my growth. Hopefully next year I boast that I still have all 6 inches. Very inspiring growth. Keep it up. I'll be looking out for your posts.
