Photo Updates

Man, it feel like I've just completely abandoned my blog and fotki ! Well I want you all to know that is NOT the case. Life has picked up, but I'll discuss that in my next blog for you =)

For those of you who may not be on the hair boards, I decided to give you some photo updates so that you aren't out of the loop :)

Lately, I've been wearing my hair in rollerset/flat ironed styles. I Love them !!! My hair is the longest it's been in a LONNNNNNNNNNNNG time ( I think I was 11 or 12 the last time it was this long) so I really enjoy seeing it this length.

It's funny, when I wear my hair in my fro, it looks the EXACT same length as it did about 8 months ago. I don't see much difference from the back of my head, nor do I see it when I style the front of my hair. Here is a comparison from August 2010 and April 2011 ( left and right respectively):



When I straighten my hair, it clearly has grown and I'm happy about that. August 2010 on the left and April 2011 on the right again:



Rollerset hair was easier to deal with this past winter since I didn't have to wash or style my hair at all. I enjoyed wearing my real hair and not having to worry about it each day. I would wear it straight for a week or 2, and then touch it up by putting flexirods in it to kind of "disguise" the reversion I experienced. Here are some pics of that....





I still rep #teamnatural though !!! Make no mistake :) Always and forever ...

    Latoya, I really do love how my true length is hidden from me, the shock I get when I straighten is funny :)
