Ok, my anny was really on December 9th, lol. But I was SOOOO busy with finals that I was unable to get a free moment to reflect on my special day. Oh, well, that sacrifice helped me pass my final. I can officially say that my first grad school class is over, and I did wonderful. I am awaiting the official grade, A or B.
Since I have no excuse, let me reflect on the last four years. I began my hair journey on December 9th 2008. I was watching youtube videos on how to self relax and I stumbled upon HHJ videos. I was so excited. Could I grow my hair again? I was once WL, but I cut it and had been STUCK at SL ever since. I was so sick of that stereotypical saying about black girls just need to be lucky that they are at SL because it doesn't grow longer than that. Well, I was once longer than that. So, I took my starting photo and bought TONS of hair products. My hair suffered that first year. I was in this slump where I was trying to figure out what products and techniques worked for me. I tried everything. I had to learn that my hair is not made for everything.
It took TWO YEARS before I realized what products worked well with my hair and what the benefits of the product was. From 2009 to 2010, I suffered from lack of styles. I could not seem to style my hair. Why did I not see any growth at least two years after the start of my hair journey. Well, it is because I relied heavily on direct heat. Even though I was knowledgeable of how harmful it was, my hands could not leave the flat iron alone.
2011 was the year that I started to really embrace air drying and castor oil. My hair seemed to thrive tafter I was paying more attention to HEALTH rather than LENGTH. Here, my hair was under 24 hour protection. I was ready to fight off any and all temptations of unhealthiness. I really saw great progress towards the end of this year.
Here it is, the end of 2012, and my hair has really been progressing. My attention to health last year has really given my hair that boost to grow. I am grateful for the thickness that I am seeing which is a plus. I cannot see through my hair like I could years ago.
Yep, my hair has really progressed. I am thankful for the knowledge that I have. I will continue to do right by hair. Come 2013, I want to post about something even greater!!!!!!!!!!!!
