Hair Update- Its been a year!

Hi guys,
    I cannot believe its been a year since I big Chopped! At that time I didn't know anything about healthy hair journeys or that there was such a thing as the natural hair movement. I just wanted my damaged hair out of  the way so I went snip snip snip. I wasn't really happy about my hair cut ( you can see that from my one and only BC picture) but I just felt there was really no need to hold on to hair that was as damaged as mine. Sometime thereafter I discovered hair blogs and YouTube and the rest they say is history. I put my hair on a regimen and decided to keep my hair natural. That's one of the best decisions I ever made. I am so in love with my hair!!!!! If I could hug and kiss her I would ;-)
   Of course there have been ups and downs in my hair journey. The ups are the new (and sometimes crazy) experiences that I have had with my hair and my newfound self reliance in all things hair related. The downs have been the inevitable  mistakes that have somehow turned into learning points. In all I really cherish this wonderful experience and I wish I had done it earlier. Here are some pictures of my journey so far :

Big chop sad face (if I only knew what the future held)


Lost the one for January somehow.

     From the pictures above seems like my hair doesn't grow as fast as I thought it did while I was relaxed. Since I only began measuring in October 2013 I cannot say how many inches of hair I grew since my big chop but at least I have some growth which is awesome. I will do some fast hair growth experiments  within the next 3 months just to  see if I can get some extra inches before my next length check ( in August). I also want to trim my ends soon. Its been about 7 months since my last trim and I think I'm due for another because I have seen the stray split end or two. 
    That's all from me today, Thanks for stopping by ;-)

The best way to comb your natural hair

Hi there,   Combing natural hair has always been a problem. There is a lot of pain involved but that's not the only challenge combing presents. Combing your hair is a major cause of hair breakage, remember those balls of hair you remove from your comb each time you comb?  Here are some tips to help you minimize breakage from combing: Use the right tool  Never use a fine tooth comb for your hair. It is better to use a wide toothed comb. This will reduce hair breakage. If you must use a fine tooth comb ensure you have thoroughly detangled and combed with a wide tooth comb first. Also make sure the teeth of the comb is seamless to avoid ripping out your hair as you comb.  Avoid these  Much better Comb your hair only when it is damp  Your hair is weakest when it is dripping wet and so combing it then will cause it to break.On the other hand combing your hair when it is dry will also break it off because your hair is not as flexible as it should be.
