I'm actually surprised because since August I've been neglecting my hair (just sleeping on it without a bonnet or twisting) and before that I barely stuck to my regimen. 2012 has just been a bad hair year for me, but this is what I got so far.

Oh no!!!!

We need a story.

Did you transition? Did you big chop?

Do you protective style?

Lessons learned?

Your hair is GORGEOUS !!!

Looks great! Congrats on 3 years.

When you already have healthy hair it takes a lot less to maintain it...so slacking on your regimen isn't actually a big deal and not too detrimental (as long as you're not going out of your way to damage it with heat, color/chemicals, or really rough handling).

I transitioned for 8 months and then did the big chop. I had lots of heat damage though and ended up cutting off a lot more than I wanted to.


This is pretty much how I wear my hair if it's not in bun mode.

Three years since my big chop.

And I don't really have a regimen. :(

I just moisturize and wash when needed, let my hair do what it wants.

Lovely hair.  I also find that my hair grows well regardless of if I stick to a strict regimen or not.  The minute I use chemicals of any kind it breaks off like crazy, so I'm officially done with color.
