Natural Hair Growth

Hey guys!

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.

Early this year, around January or February of 2011

This was just a week or two ago of this month - November 2011
Check out how much fuller her braided Mohawk is!


This picture was taken in the beginning of the year - January 2011
Her hair was a little bit past arm pit length here

Lastly, I took this one about a week ago - November 2011
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!

Proof is in the pictures. Great work, it makes a difference when you learn to take care of hair properly and you just proved it. Thanks for sharing.

Look at that!!! Gorgeous and healthy hair! Bunny is so lucky to have a great big sister that was willing to research and find ways to gently care for her hair. You're doing an awesome job, I can't wait to see her length check in another couple months!

Dominique-Alexis said...

@Michelle G - Yes, definitely a HUGE difference! You're welcome :)

@ Nikki's Hair Thoughts - Aw thank you!

Yay I can comment now! I was gonna say that her hair is so thick and healthy! We all have our little hair story regrets, I know I do, so don't feel too bad! Bunny's growth the past year is amazing!
