November already?

Wow, it has been quite a while since I last blogged-September 23rd to be exact. I just haven't had the time. Since then, I texlaxed my hair, but I haven't actually done a length check. I want to hold off and do one at the end of the year, which is in just about 9 weeks.

I am not sure if I will make the full, blunt APL goal in the next 9 weeks but we will see how close I am from it by the end of the year. If not, then I am sure it will happen next year. My hair is doing well. I don't notice any short, broken off strands so this tells me that I am retaining length. Once I am retaining my ends, then my hair will get longer. It's a simple as that. Retention has been a challenge for me on this journey. January will actually put me into my 4th year of trying to grow my hair out.

Sometimes I feel a bit disappointed that I don't have waist length hair to show for all the time, effort and money I have invested in the past four years. All I can say is my hair looks better now than it did in the early days of my hair journey. I no longer have that dramatic V shape. Yes, the tip of my V was grazing my bra strap at one point, but the majority of my hair was not there. Because of this, I actually never liked wearing my hair out when it was straight.

Now, there is a difference. Everything is growing nicely and relatively evenly. I have one problem area which is the right front section of my hair. It is about 4 to 5 inches shorter than the rest of my hair. I have no idea what could have caused it, but it is growing out. Only thing is it will always be that much shorter than the rest of my hair.


  1. Good that youre back!

  2. I think your hair is doing great, and now that you've figured out your reggie I'm sure you'll see progress in no time!
