Memoirs Of My Hair Journey (May 2011-April2012)

My 1st Birthday
Rocking My Afro puffs

Relaxed Days
This is the longest i let my hair grow, i loved short hair when i was relaxed

Cut My hair short


Did some weaves and added tracks of extensions at the back to add some length

During my Short Transitioning Period (5 Months)


My First Big chop

Tola from My Long Hair Journey did my first big chop

My front hair was still had relaxed ends so i used perm rods to kind of macth my natural hair
Here as you can see i braided my front hair because it was relaxed and did not macth my natural hair texture

Opps... I Chopped it again

The day of my big chop- I felt liberated

It was the perfect Style for the Summer

I hope you enjoyed the pictures of my Journey. The last Picture taken marks my 11 months Natural Hair Journey.
I will be celebrating my One year anniversary in May 2012 and i am still happy with my hair.
As you can see from the pictures i did a lot of protective styles especially during the Winter to protect my hair. I love protective styles, for me they help in Retaining length.

Good News!!!!!

This is just to Thank my blog follower, youtube subscribers and facebook friends for their love and support during my journey. I really appriciate it.
