Here we are! After two months wearing box braids, which was very fun, here are the results! My hair has grown for sure in that time frame and healthy too ! I wanted to go through a few thoughts and reactions that I had during my wash day.
First thing I noticed is how soft it had gotten and the amount of shrinkage! I didn’t realize that my hair could shrink or stretch as much as it does but it was defiantly a treat to see! My edges are still healthy, intact and there was little fall out after washing.
My curls are more defined now that there is a little more length behind them. Of course my hair has fizz but there’s not a way to really get rid of it so I will just embrace it the best I can. My curls are not the smoothest either. That’s okay though, I think the curls will get better the longer my hair gets, or with plenty more practice styling.
I have now entered into an awkward stage in growth. My hair is long enough but not long enough, if that makes any sense. Now that my hair is longer I am able to stretch it to get a bigger do, which I am defiantly exited for. I think the chunky twist out or rod set are going to be my go to styles for now. I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to come up with new styles at this stage, it’s a little frustrating. I’m not giving in though! Only one way to move, forward! So, onward!
