I did a quick measurement before I started on my hair.
The front measured at 14", so I basically am at the same length as I was in April. Ok.. I can deal with that...
The middle was about the same, just a little thinned out.
The back was a little all over the place. There were a few short pieces, a few long pieces, and everything in between... When I combed it all together it measured at 13.5"
Heres a shot of the back. The bottom 3 rows are braided and from there, the rest is all twisted. Dont mind the messiness, I do my hair without a mirror. I dont really care about perfect parts, but it would be much better for it all to have that brick layer pattern. Notice how large the parts are and how thin the braids are. Ughh...
Goal wise, I did make my goals for this year. Hopefully the hair does not continue to fall out and I will be back at BSL by the end of this year. My goal for MBL will obviously have to be pushed back a few months.
For my challenges, I want to continue both the Protective Style challenge, as well as the No Heat challenge into 2013.
I am thinking a 6 month of Protective Styles and No Heat until the end of the year.
My main goal from now into 2013 will be to thicken my hair back up. No growth aids and also I will be making my own products. No more commercial products aside from suave and a few deep conditioners. Making my own products is so much fun and I really appreciate the work and knowledge that goes into making something and then making it better.
So those are my goals for next year..
- No Heat
- Protective styles
- Thicken the hair back up(again..)
- Make and use only my own products for hair and body
