Hi everyone!
I totally forgot that today, November 30, is my one year anniversary since I BC'd. I remember it well: one last final transition wash and out the hair shears came! Now, I want you to be the judge and tell me: did I achieve growth or not :laughing4:

The first pic is the day after my BC. The second pic is recent--two weeks ago recent.

    Thanks everyone!!

    Have you ever felt as if you haven't progressed much, and then you look at pictures and you're shocked? Yeah, that's how I felt. I've heard that the first year is always the hardest and the slowest, but it feels as if I just chopped my hair after transitioning for a year. I just hope that I can get even more growth :-)

    No secrets here ;-) I honestly just wash it every week or two (it depends), keep it moisturized, and in protective styles. I try not to focus so much on my hair so that I don't obsess over every little thing...that may be the secret.

    Great growth. Your hair is beautiful. Gives me hope that my anemic hair might actually grow too.
