Greetings! I hope this post finds you well.
A couple of days ago the boys spent the night away from the house, and hubby decided that that would be a GREAT time for me to straighten my hair and see how much of it I had now.
I was a little reluctant: I hadn’t had it in MY MIND that I was going to be doing my hair that afternoon/evening. And you know how it can be for us natural girls: Most times we need to have our minds (and hearts) PREPARED PSYCHOLOGICALLY for wash day, LOL. I mean, there are days that you just can’t SPRING a wash day on a naturalista: It’s too hard to get the heart and soul on board and into it.
But I went ahead and did it.
Well, I went ahead and straightened my hair and did an informal length check because one of the four challenges I’ve taken on and am documenting at this blog is a HAIR CHALLENGE to obtain “healthy, mid-back length hair” (please see this blog’s About Page for details). And it’s been awhile since my last informal length check post . . . and more than two whole years since my last at-the-salon length check!
Below are my photo results (NOTE: I did not measure my hair with a tape measure this time). So, despite having done a major DIY trim a few months ago, as of this week I have reached full bra strap length! (Hoooooraaaaay!) Next stop: mid-back length, my ultimate aim. 😀
Soooooo . . . if you know me, normally THIS is when I would discuss every product, discuss every tool, and discuss every step of the method I used — complete with tips and any tricks. HOWEVER, lately I’ve been learning about how people just don’t have time to read a lot of content all over the internet anymore. They want to get in, get the info, and get out to spend time with family or on important tasks. I get it.
So, instead of writing and writing, I’ll let photos tell the story. If you are interested in knowing the exact steps/method I used to achieve my results . . . and/or how I maintain the style . . . and/or how I’ve prevented significant damage to my ends, please let me know in the comments and I’ll create a blog post about it.
RESULTS IN PHOTOS (AND NOT TONS OF WORDS) 😉 😛 🙂
As always, thank you SO much for visiting. Please feel MORE than welcome to comment. Please stay safe!
Until next time . . .
