|Big Chop Day August 8, 2011|
|August 8, 2011 hair is just shy of 2 inches.|
|Hair 1 month after big chop September 7, 2011. About 2 3/4 inches long.|
This past month has been very eye opening! My routine is very simple. I basically wash and go. With my hair so short I don't have the styling options that I will have once I get some length. I measured my hair the day after the BC and it was just under 2 inches. I measured today and I have about 2 3/4 inches. So, almost an inch in one month.
I read Teri LaFlesh's book "Curly Like Me" and have been following her method. So, far I love the simplicity of this routine. Basically just conditioner and a Denman brush, but since my hair is so short I have been using a wide tooth comb. I co-wash instead of using a shampoo, but I do shampoo my hair once a week. What I have really noticed is that my hair is NOT breaking off! The relaxer was really harsh on my hair and when my hair was relaxed I had broken hairs in the sink all the time.

Well, I am thinking about playing with my hair in the next couple of weeks and trying some flat twists and or coils. Wish me luck on my new hair adventure!
BTW I am not wearing any makeup in these pictures, so be kind if you make any comments.
