Hair Journey

In my last post, I talked about my decision to transition my hair into it's natural state.  Here are some pictures of how my hair looked throughout the transitioning process.  I will warn you, some of these photos are not the best quality.  I am trying to do a better job documenting this hair journey.

When I flat iron my hair, I wear that straight style for about four days to a week.  If it starts to revert to its curly state in less than a week's time, I simply wash it and just go back to wearing it curly.  I flat iron my hair at least twice a month.  I know, some naturals may be out there gasping.  Flat ironing is sometimes considered a big natural hair faux pas.  So far, I have not had any issues with heat damage.

April 2015 - Flat ironed

Okay, excuse that last picture.  I had flat ironed my hair a few days ago and have worn it in a ponytail for most of the weekend.  So, as you can see, I have creases in it and it appears uneven.  I assure you, my hair is not uneven.  My stylist takes great care of those ends and I get them trimmed regularly.

My hair has grown a great deal since starting this process.  I do understand that part of the growth can most likely be attributed to my pregnancy a few years ago.  However, I definitely feel my hair is healthier than it has been in the past.

For those interested in my natural hair journey, I will continue to post my progress in the future.
