Little steps

June 2009
It has been a year since I started my journey and I cant say I am wholly disappointed with my hair. It is in good condition and feels amazing. The picture shown was taken right after it was relaxed and pre dusting. The left side is still a little shorter than the right. 

You can still see my neck so not even close to shoulder length yet.It has got to that point that it never grows past again and I am hoping to see a bit more length by September.

I am giving up on the Joico split end mender and serum and wont be buying any more of these as it hasn’t made too much difference. Also I have returned to Phyto’s Vital Force Moisturising Mask as this seems to work wonders with the Joico KPak Reconstructor which is a must - No breakage. I now shampoo once a week rather than once a month so that I can try and keep my hair clean.

My current leave in is the mixed chicks leave in and will probably stick with this and after trying S curl no drip as a moisturiser I an going to try Wave Nouveau Moisturising Finishing Lotion and see how that goes. I have also spent another £13 on some Phytonectar as I haven’t bought any for a while and found that this had worked really well before.
I am also now experimenting with Mink and Castor oil from African Pride and am sticking with coconut oil for sealing after moisturising. This smells great and is wonderful. Also trying Curls clarifying shampoo once a month. I will let you know how that goes.
All bought from amazon and ebay and a great site called AfroTherapy(a UK site with next day delivery)
Dont think I will reach my goal of Shoulder Length hair by August but by the end of the year I want to have moisturised silky hair of a reasonable length (shoulder length)
