My 6-month Natural Hair Update

Six months ago, I finally did my big chop. Is it just me or is this year flying by? 😐  Here’s what’s been going on since my last update.

My hair

Not too much has changed since the last update. I finally got that trim, which I talked about in my last post. Plus, I got a nice hairstyle with it. I still have issues with single strand knots but my hair is growing. It reaches to my shoulders/collar bone when stretched. I’m still working on some new hairstyles. I tried a perm rod set last week which was a total fail. Sorry, there’s no picture evidence. I’m having a hard time getting my ends smooth. Wash and go’s are still a mystery to me. I got some gel recently so I plan to try it soon.

Goals for 6-month update (Did I achieve them?)

  • have a professional trim
  • keep protective styling
  • learn a new hairstyle (maybe something with perm rods or a wash and go)
  • deep condition at least 2x a month (I’ve been slacking a bit)

I met most of my goals for this update. Yay! Now, I need to keep up the good work.

Goals for 9-month update

  • keep up with protective/low manipulation styling
  • try a wash and go
