Well, here's my monthly hair update. I honestly can't over state how easy this transition and natural hair journey has been for me. I think it really is because it caters to my lazy hair regimen. Don't get me wrong...I co-wash once a week and try to keep my hair looking neat but I don't feel like I have to do as much protection as I did when my hair was relaxed. All I do in the mornings is spritz with water and add my Shea butter mix. Easy peazy.
Anyways, here are some pictures of my journey so far.
Like I have said in the past, the back of my hair grows really fast!
And like I have said in the past, the front of my hair grows at a snail's pace! Yikes! The great thing though is that I no longer need gel to get the front in a puff. It now fits nicely so that's definitely a plus.
The Saturday before Thanksgiving, I decided to do a clay wash. I have heard about it and some of my friends on FB swear by it so I decided to try it with a "wash and go". I don't know if the clay wash or the after treatment was the reason for my curls but I loved the outcome.
Day 1 Wash and Go results
To maintain my hair, at night, I put my hair in bunches like this. It helped to retain the curls as well as stretched my hair.

And here is a picture of my puff comparison. Its just 2-days shy of a month.
And since I am not the only lady in the house, here's one of JOE's hair from 11/29/14. This child's hair is GROWING!!! And it is taking longer to get it done! After doing her hair on Saturday, I decided to forgo doing mine until Monday. Since JOE isn't exactly thrilled about getting her hair done, it is often very tiresome afterwards.
And how cute is this picture? JOE often does her dad's hair when I am doing her hair. He let's her because it is a way for her to be distracted. Last Saturday, she decided to do more by adding bows to his hair. I love this picture! I mean, how sweet is hubby to actually let her do this AND let me take a picture of it? Priceless! I'll be adding this to the pic collage when she gets married :-D.
The love between these 2 melts my heart!
Wishing you blessings for the rest of your week. And since we are in the holiday season, please be sure to keep those who have lost loved ones in your prayers. The holidays are especially hard for many.
