8 Month Anniversary of Big Chop

April 8, 2012 Fro Hawk with flower Easter Hair.
On Easter I celebrated my 8th month anniversary of my big chop.  My hair in the front is measuring at 6 inches and it is completely curling around my nose.  I wore my hair in a fro hawk with a pink flower that matched my dress for Easter.

I learned that it is really hard to measure and do length checks on conditioned wet hair.  Next time I will measure with just wet hair.  My hair is loving most of the Mop Top products, I need to order some more of the Daily Conditioner.  I used the deep conditioner again and found that my hair is a little protein sensitive, so I will limit the Mop Top Deep Conditioner to only once a week or less.

Hair measures 6 inches.
I found that my hair felt dry and really course this past Saturday, so I did the Porosity test with a few strands in a glass of water and sure enough I have low porosity hair.  I had never heard of porosity until I read a post by Curlilocks.  Thank you sweetie you saved me from trimming my hair!  So I completely rinsed out the Deep Conditioner and just used the Daily Conditioner for my leave in and presto, problem solved smooth shiny hair again!  I'm praying to have some really healthy growth in the next 4 months because my goal is to have my hair touching my chin by my one year anniversary this August.  Until next time...

Blessings!
Length check in the back.

  8. I love your little spiraly curls. How long are you planning to let it grow? Or do you want to keep it short.

    1. I plan to let my hair grow out for at least another 15 months since I'm part of a hair growth challenge.
