Length Check #3

To end the Grow Out Challenge (GOC) over at Hairscapades, I figured it would only be right if I did a length check. Of course my readers are the first to see!

It’s funny because, in the beginning, I was dying for my hair to grow. I would have done a length check every week if I could. Nowadays, I’m not that interested in doing a length check. I think it’s mainly because my hair has reached a length where I have more options.

Before we get to the pics, let’s keep in mind that I trimmed my hair twice (maybe three times) during the GOC. It was so necessary! My hair would have really suffered if I waited until now to trim it. Of course I wore the same melon colored shirt to keep it consistent.

I’d say it looks like about 2 inches of growth. Maybe a bit more.

After I did my length check, I blow dried my hair a little and I trimmed it AGAIN. I am at the point in trimming it where I don’t have to trim as much. For some reason, the right side of my head was very bushy at the ends, moreso the back than the front, which is what prompted me to trim it. Weird, because I sleep on the left side.

I’m pleased with my hair growth. I can’t wait to see where my hair will be this time next year!


Honey Facewash

Has anyone ever tried washing their face with honey? …or made a face mask with honey?

I was reading up on it and a lot of people have tried it due to the fact that honey naturally has antibacterial properties. In addition it is a good moisturizer.

I thought of trying it. Not daily, but perhaps twice a week when I would normally use my face mask. I’m a little hesitant for two reasons. The first reason is that my face is actually doing pretty well for once, so I wouldn’t want to throw things off with something new. The second reason is that although there are a lot of great reviews about using honey as a face wash, some people complained that it dried out their skin. I do believe those people were using it daily or possibly multiple times a day though.

If you’ve tried it before, let me know how it was.
