Hey ladies,

My hair is starting to catch itself again.
Had quite a setback and lost some length because of that.
So basically I am back to the length my hair was when I went m.i.a. from the forum or perhaps the length of the vacation setback when the hairdresser went scissor happy.

(By the way, I realize the pics are big, but couldn't re-size them)

Up until recently I was wearing my hair up a lot.

(Till we meet again super bun...)


(My slouching puff)


At first it was easy going but then later on it came to a point that I could not wear my hair out in the condition it was so the monotone styles became my crutches and it was the beginning of a vicious cycle.
I realized that it was time for a resolution, either cut my hair and start a new or take time to nurse it back.
I decided to make time.

(After I was done.)


Since I hadn't worn my hair stretched in a while I decided to put my satin hair hood+magnetic rollers(major time and heat saver!!!) and flat iron to use.



Rain decided to pay a visit just when I decided to wear it straight,
so I braided it in two every night and wouldn't unravel till I reached my destination and then re-braid it for the evening at home.



Then I figured I'd fluff it and wear it big for a bit.



Lengthcheck a few hours ago:



As much as I enjoy my hair stretched, I do enjoy the volume when curled up.
Now for volume to meet more length and I will be a happier camper .


I figured I'd wear it out in it's natural state again:

I washed, conditioned and added some frizz buster serum from IC fantasia while it was wet and then dried it with the diffuser.

(Washed and conditioned half of it on this pic)


(Dry)



Resolutions made:
Make time for hair when necessary.(*done and will do*)
Wash hair in two sections.(*I do that now and will continue)
Sleep with hair and ends protected.(*Every day since, even did it while away from home, so the change is most def. in effect.)    
Switch it up a bit now and then (*working on it :))

I am going to wear it out more from now on, that's for sure.

Hopefully I will make it to full waist length this time around.
I'm aiming for it.

Thanks ladies , as for the color, it was Pillarbox red from La Riche's Directions, I say [was] because it's quite some washes ago so it's not as vibrant as the first time. It's a semi-permanent conditioning hair color in a jar(similar to the likes of the Manic Panic line).
