My progress :)

It's been about 1 year and 3 months since I started my transition from super badly heat damaged hair. I am soooo proud of myself for sticking to this and I'm never going back :) I wanted to share some pictures of my progress to help motivate others. When I started and several times throughout the transition I wanted to throw in the towel and just rip out all of my hair. I'm really glad I didn't. Stick with it everyone! You will be rewarded!
