Texlaxer Results

I texlaxed my hair today at 7 weeks post. I wasn't in the mood to flat iron so I roller set and did a saran wrap and then took length check photos. I am currently not focusing on length as I am focusing on growing out the front of my hair so that when brushed back it reaches the length of the back. That sounds a bit confusing, but what I want is a blunt cut. I have layers but those were caused by breakage during my setback of 2011. With these "layers" my hair appears to have a "V" shape to it which is not bad in of itself but as my hair is on the fine side, I think it looks thicker with a blunt cut.

This is my hair after my mini cut. I can definitely see the front is growing out nicely. I think I could have cut a bit more off the back but I don't really feel comfortable with hair that is shorter than my current length. I know that my hair will never be perfectly even as hair grows at different rates but my goal is to have the bulk of my hair at the same length.

I believe I should only need to cut the back twice more and then I'll be focusing my meeting my length goals. I really want my hair to look pretty all throughout my hair journey. Why have long hair that I feel I need to hide because I don't like the appearance of it-whether it be the ends or the shape? My hair needs to look pretty at all times. I am really happy with it right now.

    1. Thanks for the comment. I was really surprised I retained that much length. I wasn't even sure I had made any progress until I compared the two photos.

  3. Hi Carolyn, I really like the open, frank tone of your blog posts. I think it was brave of you to "let go" of your length inJan and re-start your HHJ and it looks like it's paying off. I just started my HHJ 10 days ago and you are an inspiration :-)
