I’m so bad at completing post but life just gets in the way. I’m hardly ever on my laptop anymore much less Tumblr. So October 1st was a check in day (I didn’t forget but was in uni 9-7 and thus crashed when I got home) however, I did not forget to take pictures of my hair which I will upload later today (or eventually) when I have the chance.
What I have noticed with my hair since starting this challenge is that I have growth in both length and in thickness. My longest bits of hair at the beginning of the hair challenge were just a few lone strands that I had pulled to dear life to show the length of my hair. But now……these few lone strands have been joined by many other hair strands so I have quite a consistent thickness with my longer hair.
I have also noticed growth in my edges. My edges were only something I started to worry about recently because I was told that my hair looked thin (which was silly of me because I had sleeked my hair back in a bun and then worried greatly after the comment). I think the main growth my edges experienced were during the time that I had box braids and I did nothing to the front of my hair.
For the past few days I have been so busy I haven’t had time to twist my hair, so I have been leaving it out much to my dismay because the cold harsh English weather dries my hair out a lot. But I ensure I moisturise, oil and seal at nights before wrapping my hair and then just wearing a silk head band so my edges aren’t pulled or stressed.
My plan was to get a weave but then my hairdresser was sick and I don’t really trust anyone else with my hair and I haven’t had the chance to go home since so I’m thinking of doing some Marley Twists. I found a great tutorial and think it maybe time to do some DIY protective styling.
I think you are well and truly caught up on the life of my hair now. So back to bed I go before I start uni :( Pictures soon…………
