Hello Lovely Ladies,

So, this is my first attempt to actually update my blog on a regular basis. So in late October early November (I'm not quite sure of the exact date), I performed my BIG CHOP! For those of you who don't know, that means that I cut all of the relaxed ends of my hair off! This was an attempt and commitment to my natural hair journey and to reach bra length with my natural hair. So, since the BC I've been wearing my hair in protective styles underneath self-made wig. I'm really happy with my choice of doing the BC, because now I get to learn the real texture of my hair and my curl pattern.

Since I'm not quite sure of my exact date, I have decided to document length checks of my hair growth on the 29th of each month. So, to the right is my first documented length check on November 29tth, 2010. As you can see, most of the length is on top and around the sides. The back is a little shorter, but I hope through my journey I can improve on this. I have seen some growth since this picture was taken, which is making me very optimistic about my journey. I will be back in a few days to update on my next length check. Until then, stay beautiful.
