I hope your Thanksgiving was an awesome one filled with lots of blessings and family and laughter. And for all of you black Friday shoppers out there, I hope you found everything you were looking for and had fun!
I haven't been posting too much lately so today (tonight actually) I just wanted to do a quick one on my little sisters natural hair growth.
Check out how much fuller her braided Mohawk is!
Her hair was a little bit past arm pit length here
And now her hair is just grazing waist length
I think people assume that she's always had nice hair because she's always been natural, when that's not the case at all. She used to hate hair time because I sucked at detangling (Yes, I'm ashamed about that now but it's true) and I greased her hair and brushed her edges with rough brushes and ripped ponytails in and out of her hair...
Yes, it's a miracle that she's still alive.
One day I was doing her hair and she was mad because I was probably hurting her and I thought, why does hair time have to hurt? After that I started caring for her hair very gently and within a month I noticed new growth! The next few weeks I learned how to twist and cornrow her hair (I hadn't discovered hair blogs and youtube yet so it was a very slow process!)
I learned a lot in that 4/5 months. It was around Christmas when I discovered the internet and found CurlyNikki.com. I thought, I could do that... And the rest is history.
Just a reminder to you ladies out there that it's never too late to grow your natural hair long, strong, healthy, and HUGE! :) Have a wonderful evening!
