Hair update

Well, the bottom of my hair is ALL natural! It’s been 8 months since I started the transitioning process. Here’s a pic – this was after a wash and go, my hair is kind of dry because I used mousse and then bunned it after work, but you can still see the curls coming in strong!

I still plan on keeping my hair around this length (maybe a bit longer – collar bone) until all of it is natural 🙂

Trans Hair Don’t Care

Rockin a top knot curtesy of my clip in extensions. Messy as hell, edges crazy, could use a few more bobby pins and the extensions don’t even match my hair that well right now. Guess who doesn’t give a fuck?

**UPDATE**

Well. I took them down, fluffed them out, they looked pretty good. Decided to go for a run and in typical Florida fashion…it started pouring. So…definitely don’t have the after picture to show 😦 My hair/body/shoes are drenched.

Attention: Ringlets have been spotted!!

They’re heeeeereeeee *creepy poltergeist voice*

My itty witty baby curls, my RINGLETS!! They’ve made their debut. Entering into my 4th month natural for those wondering.

What used to send me to my next perm appt, now gives me excitement!

Teehee!! I find myself messing with them when I’m bored. Ive been irritating the shit out of my husband asking him to “look” at my scalp to comment on my new growth. Typical response: yup, it’s curly. Men!!

As you can see in the next picture, the front of my hair…edges, if you will, are growing in as slow as possible.

That hair is definitely a different texture, prob from heat/relaxer damage. I can tell there has been a lot of “new” hair growth as my hair line has become fuller.

I’m Currently cowashing regularly when wearing my hair curly. I freshen up the curls with a hair bottle filled with water, coconut hair milk and curl smoothing oil. I’ve been experimenting with twist and braid outs…not having as much success as I do with scrunching with a tshirt and defusing…will continue to try and change up the techniques.

That’s it for now!

Oh and Happy 4th all!!
