Ok, so I have been natural for the last 3 yrs...about that. I recently cut my hair down to somewhat of a ceasar b/c I wanted a change and I kind of did not like my hair's condition. Anyway I am growing it back out again. I have been since July, but I cut my hair into a frohawk in November.

This is the deal, my hair is growing out now but of course it is not even. The problem is that I do not want to cut my hair again to make it even b/c I am just plain sick and tired of cutting it. So I was just thinking of leaving it alone and letting it grow out in the shape that it is presently in..

Do you think that it will end up growing out retarded looking? Can anyone give me an idea of my hair will look like once it does grow out?
I posted some new pics on Fotki of my hair...
Also this is what my hair has been looking like for the last 3 days since I have been using the Nexxus Exxtra Gel.. I love it!

Thanx everyone,

nel

    Its hard to say if you won't need to cut it again or not. My guess is that you won't only because the frohawk isn't extremely short on the sides. Grow it out and take it one day at a time.

    Nelda: I don't think your hair will look retarded but the length won't be even which is not such a bad thing. I think your sides will eventually fill out and become longer and it may grow down in something like a bob-cut. If you find yourself growing restless maybe you can do twists or coils until it grows out some. BTW your curls are beautiful.

    Okay. You are so in the same hair place that I am in. My hair has been growing out since my 3rd big chop, and I feel a need for cleansing again! I wanna go back to the low maintainance cut. I have been considering it. I may actually do it again this summer. My friends are begging me to hang in there. I also need to have some hair for my friend's wedding in March 2008. UGH!!!

    But yeah, as to your question. I think you can allow it to grow out as is, but I am afraid that you may have to get it trimmed up a bit as it grows to meet the shape of the rest of your hair. It won't be too bad. Your hair looks great. I wore wigs, braids, twists, scarves, hats, and just my plain ole' fro during the grow out period. Your options are limitless!

    Thank you gals for the advice..I think I will just stick to what I have going on, on my hair for now...b/c I am so tired of chopping it off... ;(

    Osocristie, I know what you mean I am on my third BC too.. But I have made a vow to myself to not chop my hair at least for the next ten years...lol.. I have had every other style in the book but never really long hair...so this is my personal goal..I pray to GOD that I actually stick to it b/c my personality many times wont allow me... anyway..

    I will see about putting in some twists or something in the meanwhile b/c I can see that I am getting restless with my once again.. I tell you the growing out period is really no fun.. I guess b/c I have been through it so many times..I just need to get through the one year mark then I will relax a bit...

    Oh you guys do not wanna see my fro..right now it looks really retarded b/c of the uneveness, at least for now..maybe ill post some pics just for kicks...lol..

    Did you do the mohawk yourself? I want to buy one of those clips that gives the illusion of a mohawk. My stepdaughter told me that I better not wear it around her LOL

    From the pics in your Fotki, I think that you will be fine not cutting your hair. If as it gets longer and you see an issue with it, then you can take care of it at that time. Right now, I don't think that is necessary!

    BTW, I love your baby curls. They are so cute!
