New Year, New Hair (My mother's and my starting pix)

Happy New Year...again, lol. I promised that I was going to post the starting photos of my mother's and my hair. I am excitedly expecting wonderful results from us both.

Let me start with my photo:
I will be bunning and protective styling for the first part of the year. I will also be using a couple of growth aides later on this year. My main goals of 2013:
-reach APL
-achieve more thickness
-grow out shorter pieces
-reach BSL
Here is my mother's pix:
This first set of pictures is of my mother's hair before her setback. Her hair was growing in nicely with the castor oil and using the bonnet. My mother stopped using her bonnet and lost ALL of her progress.

This picture was taken 1/1/13. As you can see, my mother's hair is alot thinner than what she started out with in August. However, this is actually progress from her setback. It was alot worse and she wouldn't let me take a picture of it. So this pic is alot better than a month ago. This is mother's problem area. it is four inches long and five inches wide. It is extremely big, plus she has two thinning sides. The picture to the right is of my mother's total length. As you can see, she has very thin hair. HOWEVER, since her ''intervention" and setback, my mother has been doing well with wearing her bonnet. I have gotten her up of the couch twice to get her bonnet on will napping, but other than that, its been going pretty well. My mother's main goals of 2013:

-grow in her problem area where no scalp is shown
-grow more length
-achieve thickness
-by June, we are hoping that her problem area will be halfway covered

Due to my mother's short, thin hair, she is unable to bun. My mother does not wear weave, so she does not have much help, but we are optimistic.

Thanks for reading. I could really use some advice regarding my mother's hair. All comments are welcomed. Thanks again, wish us well and Happy New Year!


  1. I believe the JBCO will work well for your mom.

  2. Maybe your mother should transition to natural. Hair starts to thin as we age and her hair just seems too fragile to handle the chemicals. My mother also has very fine hair and the relaxer was doing it no justice. Would she perhaps consider a wig? Also, there are several hair fiber sprays that can help with the appearance of thickenss.

    Hope that helps.
