End of year Length Check

Hey Ladies!

Ever since I came back to Jamaica, I've been wearing my hair out with insufficient moisture and less deep cons. The pool and the beach had been regular destinations for a few days. Lets just say "fun" has been more of a priority than hair. So you know what that means? Split Ends. whomp whomp :/

So I went in on haircare this weekend, on Friday I slathered my hair with conditioner and left that on from in the evening to the next morning (Greenhouse type thing). When I woke up I did a Betontite clay hair mask, rinsed and applied my Aphogee 2 minute Reconstructer. I left my scissors at school so I'll have to get one to clip my ends.

Since today is my official end of year length check I decided to blow dry and flat iron my hair.

I recently purchased the Fantasia Hair Polisher Heat Protectant Straightening Serum (the rose pink bottle).

So I applied that before using any heat. My hair now feels super thick after blow drying, that made me super happy. I wish I took blow dried hair pics.

The heat protectant made my hair super easy to straighten with the flat iron and you can feel a layer on top your hair once its applied. Good stuff!

Anyway on to the pictures, I guess I'm a tiny bit disappointed because I wanted to be full APL but the end of the year, but I am proud of myself thus far.

Not bad for just a 9 month hair journey huh!

The patchy looking part of my ends look like that because I didn't comb it through properly. 

I think even if my hair was all the way full to the purple line, I still wouldn't be super excited because I think APL should look like APL even without the process of combing through for a length check. I hope you understand what I mean.

I should be able to see my hair as arm pit length even when I'm not in length check stance, with my head facing forward for accuracy. It should just look APL while even just walking around. 

I'll get there soon though :)

As always thanks for reading and Happy New Year when it comes!!

that is great progress for 9 months!!!  i totally get what you mean about looking a certain length while "just standing/sitting."  that was a great way to say it, because I feel the same way about whenever I finally reach BSL I just didn't know how to word it - I prob won't feel like its really long until it just "is" bsl, not in length check stance! lol.
