It’s been A Yr!.. Put up Large Chop, That is
It’s been A 12 months!.. Post Huge Chop, that is.
I have never blogged a lot. Been busy with many issues. Work, household, shifting homes, and mostly life. This life. So hard to grasp.
It was in October that I realised that my hair was 1 yr publish Large Chop in September. Final relaxer use was 4th January, 2012. Some will say I’ve been natural for a year. Okay. So much have occurred to this mane since that day of two frustrated totally different textures, a handy pair of scissors and a very eager makeshift barber. Some details of which I have documented on this blog. Now we have had MANY failed twist outs and bantu knot outs, just one successful twist out, A lot of experimenting, success tales and wailing stories. However in all, it’s been enjoyable. Do I regret going pure No means! Maybe the one remorse I’ve proper now’s that I did not go pure a lot earlier.
Listed here are a too many few hair pictures from the past yr.

By 1 yr, I discovered I had achieved collarbone size
a yr in and that i might have a ponytail. Lastly out of the awkward stage. Yaay
Twist out with a lot of frizz. But we rock it still

First perfect twist out that I gushed about right here. Haven’t been this fortunate since then.
I did a measure of my hair size. Front and sides are 7.5 inches, crown is 8 inches and nape is 7 inches.
In my next yr of my hair journey, I’m nonetheless all about volume, quantity and did I say quantity I’m nearly obsessive about it now. I am not forgetting well being and size. I think I’ve been in a position to achieve some impressive healthy hair so far. My scalp now not itches (I strongly suspect my scalp and grapeseed oil are the worst enemies. The minute I removed grapeseed oil from my regimen, I hardly ever itch). I trim when mandatory. I finger detangle. No poo in some time. I clarify. I sizzling-oil. I have reeeeeally comfortable hair from so much deep-conditioning that I worry that the softness may trigger breakage. Lol. Seborrhoiec dermatitis is essentially controlled now. When it comes, I take advantage of Damatol on my scalp for about per week and the allergy goes. Please, in case you endure from this allergy, I imagine you possibly can bend your regimen a bit to permit yourself use mineral oil-lanolin-stuffed Damatol or every other sulphur equivalent. Damatol works. At least, for me. Oils won’t cure it. Afterwards, you’ll be able to all the time clarify to remove all build-up. Don’t undergo embarrassment and discomfort all because you want to persist with using pure products that won’t do jack for you.
I have fortified my use of castor oil in a bid to regain the hairs I misplaced during my unfortunate episode with Dudu Osun and to achieve large quantity whether these follicles like it or not. I feel I may have low density hair. Some might disagree however I believe it may be so. My mum is stunned by it as she keeps saying I used to have a whole lot of hair. That point should come again. By fire by drive.
Now That is volume. My hair crush: Cipriana of City Bush Babes. Is it an excessive amount of to say I’m gunning for her volume (._.)
In addition to utilizing castor oil, I have included a scalp therapeutic massage to my regimen. I try this as I apply the castor oil in. Some bloggers are of the opinion that it does nothing to hair growth whereas others chorus that it stimulates blood circulation to the scalp and thus hurries up hair development. Whichever is true, I am not knocking this until I strive it. It might just work for me.
I realise that I’m presently at that stage the place my hair is extra focused on growing out than rising longer. I am effective with that. Growth appears gradual right now but I won’t push it. (Err.. *whistles*)
I realised that throughout my excessive-protein weight-reduction plan period, I gained quite a lot of length. What they say about protein being good for hair is no joke. I am focusing so much on consuming a lot types of clip in hair extensions of protein now to help for additional progress.
Still working to realize great hair.
