A disclaimer first: I know this isn't a great shot. In fact it's photos like this that make me wonder why I keep on with long hair. I hate that section in the middle that is wavier than the rest. And I know it looks shorter on one side but that's because I have my head tilted and the hair is caught up (easier to see when it's full size - which it isn't here). It's a gentle U shape with the shortest pieces being at waist (that's the pieces on the left hand side of the pic since the other side is caught up - so I'm not much below waist). The ends are still thin but better than what they were. I think I read somewhere that wavy hair naturally goes like this on the ends so perhaps it's not thin at all.
Honestly, I was feeling good about the cut until I saw this pic - and this is one of the better ones out of the lot that DH took.
Edited to make the photo bigger.
Progress from June 2006 - January 2011
Mid-Dark brown with natural red and silver highlights; fringe/bangs.
Starting length: 25"/62.5cm (BSL)
Current length: 33.5" (Cut back from 38.5" February 2011 following a massive shed.)
New Goal: Healthy hair that I'm happy with!
Scalp wash every second to third day using Chagrin Valley shampoo bars.
Finish with acidic rinse (1 tsp ACV or lime juice to 1 to 2 cups of water or herbal tea). Full wash once a week using A'kin
conditioner or an egg wash to cleanse the length and shampoo bars or A'kin
shampoo on the scalp.
Other: Oiling when required with avocado and almond oil or shea butter; regular micro-trims; BBB; wooden comb; Mason Pearson comb; hair sticks, Flexi-8's, Ficcare, and other hair friendly toys.
'Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfailing beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.' 1 Peter 3:3-4
