Hi Ladies,

Well the time has come for me to post my hair journey through 2008.

In January 2008, I really started developing my hair regime and joined a Super 3m challenge. This challenge really helped me to develop a routine and start learning about my hair.

Here is my hair in Jan 08:

Braided out flat-ironed hair

My standard twistouts

In March ’08, I finally took the plunge into the Henna world. Initially I hated it. I couldn’t figure out how to get all the grit out. But after getting more info, I can now say I’ve perfected the Henna application.

I looked so silly!!

In May ’08, I placed my hair in my first set of mini-twist and loved them. I need to do this again. I also did my first official length check.

In June ’08, I started the Twisting for Growth challenge. I did it for 3m and my hair really thrived.

Took a break from the twist and did a puff ponytail

In Sept ’08, I did my other growth check and started to wear my hair in a wash and go style, and started to focus on a cowash challenge. I also started using a rosemary-sage spritz mix on my hair.

I also started to experiment with more afro styles:

In Sept-Dec. ’08, I started to really tweak my regime. Started adding tea mixes and Vaseline to my regime. I even developed a natural homemade hair mask that has done wonders for my hair.
