It's official: 1 year of Kinks and Coils

Now - 5/26/13

Then - 5/26/12

One year ago today, I did the Big Chop on my hair and I haven't looked back.

One year ago today, I had a mini panic attack and thought, "Oh shit, what have I done!"

One year ago today, I said goodbye to the curtain of hair that shielded my face.

One year ago today, after my big chop I immediately went to Trader's Joe and bought Shampoo and Conditioner and washed my hair for the first time without worrying about it ripping out of my scalp or getting tangled. Hell I was happy to just be able to WASH my own hair!

Since then, I've learned alot about how to take care of my hair ranging from my beautician, to watching YouTube videos and reading natural hair care books. Yet even with all that out there, I still feel at times that I'm still learning just as much about my hair now as I did a year ago.

 I enjoy watching the growth of the my hair but still get impatient from time to time wanting my length back. I've learned to be more responsible with my hair now that it is natural better than I ever did when it was relaxed. I guess my only source of frustration is styling. I know my hair is long when pulled but boy it sure is coily as hell. Still trying to figure out how to stretch to get some length going. Shrinkage is a bitch. So for a whole year except for the two times I've seen my stylist, I've been wearing nothing but Wash n Go's. But thankfully my wash in go's look like I've had Finger Curls done because of my hair's natural curl pattern.

Today was suppose to be a wash day but with it being Memorial Weekend I wasn't sure if I was going to be grilling so I thought I better hold off until then.

No, not ashy in the face, just happen to take pic with flash on. lol

So here is to my first year natural, looking forward to many more;)

Until the next episode....
