Hey Ladies !! Well I just wanted to write a very short and sweet blog to update you !
On March 29th, I made it to 8 months post Big Chop !!! Today I'm rocking a super-sized puff and I LOVE it. Earlier today, my sister, who has teased me since the big chop by calling me She-baldi (hehehehe !! that's still funny to me)...
well get this... She says to me, "I like your hair today. It looks nice." :-O *jaw drop* Did I hear her correctly??? Wow !!! lol... My sister always asks me if I'm going to straighten my hair, or get it blown out and I constantly tell her no, I don't like it straightened. This is the first time she's told me that my natural hair looks nice, as is. I was shocked, like Fred Sanford, hand over heart, "Elisabeth, I'm coming to joing you !" shocked. Don't get me wrong, she doesn't call my hair ugly, but whenever I ask her if she likes it, she says how it will look cuter once it gets longer. Can't say I disagree with that, because I honestly have always felt that way.
Anyways, I'm just SO HAPPY that it's growing to the point others can see it =)
Here is a pic of my puff today. My hair almost completely covers the back of my hairline!! I can't wait to see my ponytail in another 8 months !
... and to the transitioners, hang in there!!! Here is an 8 month comparison of my afro puff. The pic on the left is from August 2, 2009 (4 days after the BC).
The pic on the right is today, April 1,2010 ( almost 8 months later)!! My hair has been growing the average 1/2 inch a month, nothing miraculous. I'm just glad to be retaining the length.
HHJ Everyone !
