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 ...


  1. so beautiful shelley, very inspirational...your progress is amazing..keep up the good work!!!

  2. Your hair looks great! It is growing beautifully. Gotta love shrinkage and how it disguises length. :-)

  3. Thank you for commenting ladies !!!

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

  4. YaY you're back, I was wondering if you called it quits on us, you know I'm a junky!!! lol. Glad you're back and your growth really is phenomenal, love it.
