Well I thought it was time I checked in on my natural hair blog. I really have not been doing anything special to my hair, except missing it. I am trying to patiently wait for it to grow but it is not easy. Even though I love updos, I still long to wear my hair down again, but the lack of length in the crown makes it not look good. I am hoping by November I will have gained enough of my length and fullness back to wear it down.
I did press my hair this shampoo, but after my next shampoo I plan to wear it natural and twisted for a while to give it a break from the heat. I bought a new product to use, so will review this when I use it.
The good news is it does seem to be growing and getting fuller. I tried brushing my ends and applying Aveda Anti-Humectant Pomade to the ends before pressing to try to smooth them with only moderate results. In the photos below you can see how frizzy the ends look. I will monitor how they look when I take the pin curls down tomorrow. I think the ends of my hair are still showing signs of scab hair and are not going to really improve until cut off.
