Hair Surprises

Curly_LuvCurly_Luv Posts: 22Registered Users
So, for a few months I had assumed my hair was a little past shoulder length, but not quite bsl. I hadn't measured the length of my hair in quite a few months, I used to check the length monthly a year after my BC. Well, over the summer I learned about mini twists and decided to give them a try and I loved them. They showed my length and still maintained volume. Over my winter break, I decided to do mini twists again. As I was twisting my hair, I decided to see if I could reach it from behind my back and as I managed to grab it for the first time, I proceeded to stretch it a little, lo and behold :shock:... my hair was mid-back length. A furious bout of picture taking ensued.

What hair surprises (good and bad) have you all had with your curly hair?
Hair type: mostly 4a with tight waves in the front, very dense, high porosity.

Current Length: Mid-back
Ultimate Length goal: Waist or Hip length

My hair loves: honey and olive oil
My hair hates: being contained
Products I use: GF Length and Strength conditioner, EVCO, EVOO, Honey, Eco Styler Olive Oil, CD Tui Oil

    I had a surprise recently after doing a hot oil treatment on dry hair. It gave me a lot of stretch. I knew my hair was dense but stretched it looked massively big.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:
