- to the height of it all -


wash day + length check | 12.31

i kept it super simple for wash day to make sure i wouldn't have too much build-up because i straightened my hair! i went back and forth about it because it was so dry, but i really wanted to get a good idea of how long i had until waist-length.

i deep conditioned overnight with bee mine deep conditioner (this actually works well now that my hair isn't porous!), washed with bee mine shampoo, and did a final condition with bee mine conditioner.
i put two quarter-sized puddles of argan oil throughout my hair, towel dried thoroughly, and let my hair air dry.
i flat ironed on 365 (i used a babyliss flat iron with an attached comb!) and that was it.

most of my hair is a little past midback-length minus the cheek-length bangs i cut in may which are now past collar bone length and almost armpit length.  my belt is at waist-length, and i hope to claim it by this time next year or sooner!
i have this one random section that is longer than the rest that i may trim or just let it do what it does until i do the big evening up cut on my 30th birthday.
i have four orange perm rods in as we speak to give my hair a bit of a bump, and then i will be ready to head to my nye party!

any nye plans? how was your wash day?

It seems like my left side ALWAYS grows faster/fuller/more beastmode than the rest of my hair! I just adore your hair girl! I have perm rods sitting in my straightened hair waiting for a fabulous NYE party too. (At my house on my couch...) HAHA!

Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience!

YOUR HAIR HAS GROWN SOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH. You hair looks amazing. Congrats to you. I'm certain you'll be at WL in no time.

It's so weird! My right side is definitely longer and I have no idea why!
The perm rods worked beautifully! I was surprised :)

Thanks so much!!!! I'm happy - this is the longest it has ever been, and I can't wait to see what the next 3 years will bring :)

In 3 years, I predict you will be on auto-pilot and just letting your hair be great without little to no worry about tracking progress.

Congrats on your length progress! Your hair looks amazing and so healthy! I definitely see you reaching waist length before the end of next year. BTW I need to hear more about this flat iron with attached comb please! Sounds so lovely, because this comb chase thing is a bit of a hassle. LOL!

Thanks, Andrea!
I used this one! http://www.beautyofnewyork.com/shopping/G7D6020510KI1006.htm

I can't seem to find it in stock anywhere, though :(
I bought it a few years ago.
