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.

I am SOOOOOOOO late. I had no idea you were growing your perm out! Your hair looks really healthy. Love it. 🙂
Why thank you! Yea girl! I’ve been growing it out since March 2010. I don’t think it looks as healthy now. More pics to come though.
That 11/14 twist out is fierce!! And, again, I LOVE your flat twists!!! Those were on straightened hair though? That’s what I find difficult, trying to do them on wet or dry curly hair. Maybe I need to lightly blow dry first?
Im real late on this…but we share the exact same hair texture and length. my left side is super curly, but my right side’s texture is almost non existent. However, I see as time went your texture began to come in. I hope mine does…its been 8 mths
