The last few weeks have gone really as well as can be expected. I have mastered the art of doing flat twists. I am still working on doing 2-strand twists. I have managed to not become a product junkie and so far, I haven't lost all my hair. I count it all positive.
AND, I actually purchased a bonnet dryer! All part of my plan of doing my own hair at home.
|Taken 3-weeks ago..|
|You can see my natural hair is growing in nicely.|
So the following day, I decided to just re-twist it for church and accessorize it with a flower.
My hair stylist is awesome and I love her but I am VERY tender headed and after my last appointment, I decided it would be best I not go back too often or else, I'll leave there crying ALL THE TIME since my head still HURTS 10-days later!
In anycase, I plan on keeping the flat twists in front through the end of this week. I added flat twists to the back of my hair and will be putting the back in perm rods over the weekend to kind "refresh" the look for next week.
Excuse the work space mess. Clearly, lunch breaks should be taken in the lunch room. But there are people there and they'd think I was strange if I started snapping pictures of the back of my head! :-).
And because I couldn't resist, here are pics of my 5.5 months growth. I have about 3-inches of new growth in some areas and more in other areas which is consistent with about a regular 1/2 inch growth per month.
I started taking MSM supplements last week for 2 reasons.
- I have been running again and MSM is supposed to help with muscle healing and connective tissue so I figured it would be a good supplement to take. I did my first 2-mile run since being 4-months pregnant last Tuesday and it felt great! I think I can definitely go 3-miles but I will build up to it. My goal is 2.25 miles next week.
- My second reason is that MSM supplement is rumored to help with hair growth. Not sure if I believe it but I'll let you know if I notice any difference.
I was initially going to try Hairfinity but since J & I still want to have more kids, I don't want to put anything that might mess with my body when the time comes.
Anyways, there you have it. My hair is growing nicely and so far, I am enjoying it.
