Hey Curly Nikki and soon to be cute baby girl!

Time sure does fly doesn’t it?! It seems like just yesterday that you announced you were prego! Anywho, in regards to my lovely mane, time really does fly! My one year anniversary (since I BC’d) was May 17, 2010 and I wanted to share some pics with you and the curly hair community. I can’t believe that in just one year, my hair has surpassed the length that it was when my hair was 100% relaxed. Wowser.

I’ve recently received some emails from other ladies who are having some challenges with their hair during the summer months, transitioning, and most off all, patience! I thought submitting some photos of my journey might encourage others to stick it out, be patient and learn how to love and embrace their OWN hair! I also wanted to thank you for all of the Henna posts. I read them over and over and over again for about 2 months straight, until I finally decided to take the plunge and try it. Boy am I a happy girl that I did! I love Henna and have become very addicted to the process and the results! Can you believe I even love the smell! Hehe 🙂 I have been Henna’ing once a week for the last several months and have noticed that my hair hardly sheds, is stronger than ever, is bigger than it used to be and I absolutely adore the red rent. I haven’t experienced ANY loosening, nor has my texture changed. Truth be told, I was kind of hoping for my curls to loosen just a tad bit, but it seems like they are tighter and pop more than they ever did before! Ahhh well, we’re never satisfied are we?! lol….Anywho, here are the two collages that I put together.

Thanks for doing what you do and for being so fabulous while doing it!
