Nope! Not what you're thinking. Soon, but at least not right now! LOL! Sooooo....I was curious to see the progress my hair has made over 2011. I made a few significant marks. I reached APL (arm pit length), I straightened and trimmed for the first time since my big chop in 2009. It is always best to track your journey in pictures to see just how far you've come. It's interesting to watch my hair bloom before my eyes. I take soooo many pictures, you would think was vain! Maybe I am a little, but I digress. It boggles my mind just how much my hair has grown. It's just CRAY!
Out of curiousity, I went back through my natural hair albums and started to look at my length check photos. I went back to February 2011. This was my length before the trim and my hair after the trim. Pardon my half nakedness. :)
The tattoo on my back is my guide to my hair growth. In the pre-trim pic, my hair is about 1.5" past my tattoo. I actually trimmed my hair about 2" when I straightened it. In my post-trim pic, it falls in the middle of my tattoo. Granted, my hair was bumped a little, but not by much. I was a little bummed for trimming that much, but I knew it would be worth it in the long run. I checked my hair every two months after that to see how I was doing. I checked in April, late June, late August and just recently at the beginning of January. Here is my length check photo over the last 9 months.
