(Warning, photo heavy post)
So here we are, it’s finally over. One whole year of growing, complaining and celebrating has come to an end. I avoided getting my annual haircut, even though I desperately needed one, just to be able to show off my length. I hope it’s paid off. I need one more haircut to finish fixing the original issues from last years chop job, and also my bangs are stabbing my eyes. I’ve been wearing my hair curly this last week so I wouldn’t notice as much, its working.
I didn’t really have any new milestones this month. One thing I noticed was how irritating it is to have hair clutching to your neck in humid weather. Summer is usually when I forgo my bang trims because I can’t tolerate having hair sticking to my forehead. Damn heat. I’m going to try to such it up this year though.
I’m starting to guesstimate how long my hair will be by the end of next summer. I want at least 4-5 inches more in time for the wedding. Oh the pressure.
My hurr in its many stages of undress. But if that doesn’t show off how far we’ve come… lets try some side by sides.

It really does put things into perspective.
Things I’m still enjoying, feeling my hair plastered and wet on my back, pulling it out from my shirt and when it gets in my way and I have to pull it up into a pony tail… priceless.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this journey with me, I certainly will miss keeping you posted… but I’ll check in from time to time.
And now… a look back at our (me and all my many strands of hair) progress.
