Does anyone want to do an update/check-in measure/health for April? I'm going to try to have my kids take some pictures of my hair tomorrow (my oldest is 7, so who knows if they will turn out) and I will measure, my longest curls are barely brushing bsl, but just barely. More in my update tomorrow. I might just reply to this, or should we start a new thread for this? Any takers?

I had to cut my hair to a pixie Spring 2015 due to horrible postpartum shed with my 3rd baby. As of Spring 2017 my longest layer has made it to BSL when the curl is pulled straight.

My Favorite Products Currently:

As I Am- Coconut CoWash
Coconut oil-for moisture treatments
Rosemary Tea-to refresh my curls in the morning
Shea Moisture- Curling Souffle gel

We've just started a thread like this and each one has replied to it. So jump in when you have your photos and/or measurements and post.

I no longer measure but go by body markers. Numbers on a tape measure (or set of scales) depress me. Lol.

Besides, I just had several inches cut off my hair yesterday at the salon after thinking about it for ages. I've been waiting for photos before posting but I think my longest strands are at waist. So I didn't go too short but am super happy with the way my hair looks now. That is, except for the fringe which is a lot shorter than I like and all the one length (I like it longer on the sides), but it will grow.

Hair Journey Began June 2006 ...

Hair Type: 2a/M/ii
Natural Colour: Mid-Dark brown with natural red and silver highlights (more silver than red nowadays); fringe/bangs (which I am always in the process of growing some out).
Starting length: 25"/62.5cm (BSL)
Initial Goal length: 36" (Tailbone)
Setback: Major shed in 2010 when at 38" while dreaming of classic
New Goal: Healthy hair that I'm happy with! (Preferably tailbone with thick hemline.)
Estimated Date: Mid 2017 for tailbone and then maintenance/beautification programme begins.

Current Routine
CWA: C = condition the length; W = wash the scalp using diluted organic shampoo or shampoo bars; A = acidic rinse, either ACV or citric acid; Frequency = once a week. In-between times, scalp washes as required.
Favourite Products: locally bought shampoo bars; A'kin shampoo; cone-free conditioners; avocado, olive, almond and coconut oils.
Other: Regular micro-trims; light oiling on dry hair a few times a week; BBB; wooden comb; Mason Pearson comb; hair sticks, Flexi-8's, Ficcare, and other hair friendly toys.
Latest Experiment: Washing with rye flour shampoo

'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
