I've been a terrible blogger this year, but with good reason! Med school has been working me out plus I had a very demanding summer job!
I just wanted to do this reeeeeaaal quick update just so people would know I haven't fallen all the way off this hair journey. I still stick to my regimen and am determined to be at waist length within the next 6 months!
This was the length of my hair back in September before my last trim. I got a decent amount of growth and was soooo close to grazing waist length (which is where my hand is on the right) but I was not feeling my ends or that 'V' shape at all! I am a big fan of blunt cuts and healthy THICK hair from root to tip so I decided to do a big trim.
Sidenote: I had to beg my flatmate to cut it for me, she thought I was overreacting and that my ends looked fine.
Close up of my ends.....I didn't have a lot of splits but it was just thinner than I wanted it to be. I also had some thinning on the sides, partly because they grow slower than the rest of my hair but also because I used a handbag everyday for work over the summer and it messed with my hair on the right side :(
And below is what my hair looked like after my trim. I evened out the 'V' shape into a nice blunt cut, taking off up to 2 inches in the middle. It was a little hard to trim that much, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE how my hemline looks now so it was worth it!
I am currently about 12 weeks post, since I haven't relaxed since September, so barring any setbacks I should be waist length by maybe around March. I hope this answers any questions people may have had about where I disappeared to or if i'm still on my hair journey! Trust that I'm around, I just be lurking sometimes lol
