Three month anniversary of Big Chop!

It's now November and time for another length check.  My 3 month anniversary of my big chop is tomorrow, but I will be busy so I decided to do my monthly length check today.  I measured my hair again and found out that my hair at my crown is about 4 1/4 inches long while the hair in the front is 4 inches long.  When I measured my hair after my big chop my length was 1 7/8 inches long (just under 2 inches).  I did some math and figured that I have had 2 3/8 inches of growth since my big chop that's almost two and a half inches of growth in 3 months.  That puts me just under an inch above the average hair growth most people experience.
Regular shrinkage without any fluffing.
Hair fluffed with my fingers.

One thing that I have noticed in the past month is my curl pattern.  I really love how my hair curls up and my new length is allowing me to do some different styles.  I have updated my hair regimen so check out what I am doing now that it's colder here in Minnesota.  I'm gonna try to do some flat twists again.  I did some more research and found out that I was doing it right, I just need to practice to make the twists look neater.  Watch for the results of my second attempt at flat twists.  Until next time...


  1. You have gorgeous curls! Congrats on three months! Can't wait to see your second attempt at flat-twisting :)

  2. Congratulations on the milestone. I'm looking forward to six, nine and twelve month updates!!
