It’s time to check my hair growth! Remember I cut off all my hair in June to start fresh. My curl pattern had changed due to Henna (just my own personal experience) and it just wasn’t holding a twist. In addition to me coloring it “myself”, not deep conditioning it like I knew I should, left my hair dry – when leads to breakage.
So…I cut if off.
At 6 months, my hair is almost 6 inches. It was already about 1 when I cut it off.
So it’s grown about 5 inches in 6 months.
|Same Day 12/12
But the night before I twisted it and this is the result of that: TWIST OUT.
If this is 6 months of growth, I am excited to see 12 months. I believe I am going to straighten it in month 7 to actually see how long it is. If you see from the ruler (above) picture, the back will come to my shoulder!
1) Pregnant – taking pre-natal vitamins, which I will continue to do after the baby is born.
2) Jamaican Black Castor Oil – I bought this on the day I cut my hair off and have been using (not daily but consistently) it often on my scalp and sometimes hair.
3) Protective Styling – since I cut my hair, I wear it out maybe one week out of a month. The other 3 weeks are some sort of style that keeps my hands out of my head.
4) Moisturize – even though my hair will be in a protective style 3 out of 4 weeks, I still let the shower water run through it often. I still condition it and oil my scalp. Not daily, but often.
I am happy thus far with my growth.
