I am challenging myself to do 6 months of protective styling. My ultimate goal for the end of 2011 is waist length, but by giving myself short term challenges, it helps me to make my goals more realistic.
So to keep myself accountable – Here are my pictures of my hair 3 weeks into this goal. I realized I can use this striped shirt to measure the growth. Beats creating a t-shirt with lines on it!
Front of my hair is: Past armpit length APL
Sides of my hair are: Just about bra-strap length
Back of my hair: Just hit Mid Back length
My realistic goal is to have the back of my hair all at mid-back length and the front at bra-strap length!
I had to stretch my hair in sections, I had just taken it out of my protective box braids and it was HUGE!
I must say I am shocked at my hair so far, although I know I could have taken better care of it this past year this is the longest my hair has EVER been!
