Or at least its felt like it for so long! I didnt realize until today, after browsing my pictures folder on my computer and seeing pictures of myself from before I cut off all of my relaxed hair, that I dont really look that much different. My hair does, of course, but I guess because I fluxuated between hairstyles so much before I went natural that it doesnt feel quite so…..large… to me. This picture was taken on January 14, of this year.
I was actually natural at the time (a few weeks) but I was still wearing my relaxed hair, in weaved styles (Which in this picture, I must say that i did a FABULOUS job of making it look like mine, lol). This picture was taken today, and I still think my hair looks fabulous!
It’s just that in this picture, its all mine, exactly the way it grew out of my head! But I think that I look the same in both pictures. Cutting off all of my hair hasnt made me look drastically different, at least not to me!
Anywho, it’s been growing wonderfully, especially since I started with much less of a “fro” than i have now, after my husband insisted that if I would be wearing this way, he has to be allowed to keep it evenly cut and lined, which resulted in the loss of what I felt like was a LOT of my natural hair. I have it all back now though, so im glad. If I were to relax my hair now, it would actually be much longer than the relaxed hair that I cut off back in May.
What drastic hair changes have you ladies been through, good or bad?
