As I mentioned in this post about Hair Vitamins, I am taking some vitamin supplements from African Hair Accel that are supposed to encourage faster hair growth. I braided my hair on Friday, and I started taking the vitamins on Saturday. After the 30 day period has elapsed, I will take down my braids and do another length check to compare, and I’ll definitely show you my results.
So, here are length check photos taken on Thursday night, after I blow-dried. You can read about my blow dry process (the Tension Blow-Dry method in my last post here)
As you can see, I measured 8 inches in the front and back, and about 7 inches in the middle.
I was on Black Girl Long Hair on Tuesday and appaz, for some people, it’s a crazy or psycho obsessive thing to do length checks with measuring tape? LOL people need to calm down. I got this idea from Ndeshimona of My Curly Potential, and I think it’s a pretty effective and accurate way to do a length-check. Definitely easier than making or buying a length-check tee, though I may still make one for making sake.
Of course, for the After shots, I will measure the same sections. The front and back ones are always in the same spots- with my ear as a landmark/ marking point.
Me I’m just happy that I’ve reached weave length, I can cut all this off now and package and sell as 8-inch Extra Virgin Afro Kinky Hair, hit me up if you want to buy! LOL
My 2nd Hairversary is coming up and I catch myself wishing I had more length to show for it like some of my “mates”. Then I remind myself that this is a journey, I’ve identified my setbacks, I made a plan and so far, I’m sticking to it. I’m just going to keep on loving my hair, and let it respond to the love in its own way.
Length aside, my hair is in a very happy place right now. It is super soft, shining bright like a diamond, and cooperating with all my products. I’m very happy, very happy indeed! 🙂
