First Ponytail

Hello everyone!  As my first year of being natural gets closer I have been playing with my hair.  Since the curlformers basically stretched my hair out I decided to try to pull ALL my hair into one ponytail.  This morning I used some water and gel to slick back my hair and then I gently started to gather and smooth my hair into a ponytail.  This is the first time I have gotten all my hair into a ponytail without needing any hair clips to bobby pins to hold down stray hairs.  This style really puts my face on display and my son told me seven times today that he liked my earrings.  Yeah, I counted!
First ponytail.
I was really surprised that my hair really isn't pulled all that tight.  No headaches or feeling that my edges have too much tension.  I comfortably wore my ponytail all day long and thought to myself that I could of done a ponytail two months ago. 

Now, I haven't forgotten to do an update on my Viviscal experiment.  I hope to get it done maybe tomorrow.  If not I will for sure update early next week.  My family and I are going to Adventure Camp with our church this weekend, so I will be busy.  Until next time...
Blessings
