Update time!

Hi guys!

Just checking in with a brief update on my hair. I am more or less at waistlength (its hard to tell on me cuz I have such a short torso). and a couple inches from hip length. Funny enough, I still don't think of myself as having 'long hair' until I see it in pics then I'm like 'Whoa! Is all that mine?!'. 

Somewhere along the way my long term goal went fom BSL to waist length, then to 'I want hair that touches my butt' aka hip length lol. I am on track to meet this goal by the end of the year which sounds crazy to me! So here's what my hair looks like now...




The orange line is my estimated hip length, 3 inches to go!! :D :D

And below is what my hair looks like when its airdried. This is a repost from my ig I had captioned as 'post-wash, pre-taming, outchea lookin like Mufasa birthed me!' lol


I toyed with the idea of getting a corrective relaxer done, but then realised that I love the thickness of my hair. At the moment the only part of my hair thats relaxed dead straight are the last three inches or so, which is why my ends look so stringy in the first pic (the relaxed ends are also weaker due to me going blonde pre hair journey). Ya'll know how I feel about thick, blunt ends so I am honestly not happy with my hemline right now, but the ends themselves aren't split or anything so I'm finding it hard to justify a big trim.

What I have decided to do is to trim about 1/2 inch with every relaxer...at that rate I should still achieve hip length by December, or be pretty close to it. I did a trim shortly after I took that pic last week, and depending on how I feel when I relax in a couple weeks I might trim another inch. Either way by the end of the year there will no longer be any bone straight relaxed hair on this head of mine. 

Thats all for now, will update again with my next relaxer!
