The 1st Year At A Glance

June 5, 2010 – Almost 3 months after my very last perm. One side still curled when wet, the other side… not so much!

July 11, 2011 – 4 months into my natural hair journey. A twist out on mostly permed hair. Looking back, it lays much flatter than a twist out on my natural hair.

August 2010 – 5 months into my natural hair journey. This was a twistout again. The ends are still so straight.

September 12, 2010- 6 months of new growth, but considering how long my hair is, it’ll still take forever to fully grow out.

September 25, 2010 – 6 months of new growth on wet hair.

October 24, 2010 – 7 months of new growth on wet hair.

November 14, 2010 – 8 months of new growth. This was a nice twist-out and my hair looks pretty healthy.

December 12, 2010 – 9 months of new growth on wet hair.

December 13, 2010 – I blowdryed my hair. I was tired of wearing a ponytail so I put my hair down and took some pics. Reminiscing on my straight days.

December 21, 2010 – 9 months into the natural hair journey. I straightened my hair to trim it.

December 21, 2010 – Then I twisted it up for the night. I like my twists.

February 6, 2011 – 11 months of new growth on wet hair.

February 6, 2011 – 11 months of new growth on wet hair. I stretched it up to show the difference in thickness as well as the amount of new growth compared to the amount of perm.

February 18, 2011 – My 3C curls are coming in nicely. Wish I had more of it, but one day I will.

March 14, 2011 – Officially at the 1 year mark. I honestly expected it to take 2 full years to grow out my perm, but after examining my hair at the 1 year mark I realized it would take MUCH longer. I can’t lie, I was disappointed.
