Hair progress pictures

09:50 Sandra N.U. 17 Comments

   I promised I was going to scrounge up progress pics so I could share how my hair has been doing since the chop.
 
     I've never flat-ironed my hair to do a length check. When my hair was relaxed I would just wear it straight and take a picture of my back. It may not have been as accurate as flat ironed hair, but I was able to see the length I worked with daily.
    With natural hair, it's not so simple. Because of shrinkage you can take two pictures on the same day and look like your hair has grown a mile. You can take a picture so much shorter than your actual length it looks like sorcery.
 
  While trying to gather the pictures for this post I tried to pick ones where my hair was stretched some way. There's still some shrinkage so these are more comparison shots than length check pics.
 


Big chop June 2015 to December 2015

    From now on I'll use a standard procedure so I can really see my hair's progression. I'm thinking, threading to really stretch out the kinks. If I want to see the actual length I'll do the usual pull down- like in October above. How do you take progress pics?

  2. YES YES YES to these curls honey! I have the same issue with shrinkage and I really don't want to flat iron my hair to get a length check so I've been using a measuring tape!

    1. I'm afraid I'll just jinx it. I'm basically tiptoeing around the hair now hoping that grinch, terminal length, doesn't catch up to me.

  10. I'm not taking progress pictures anytime soon, I've just not been motivated to since I cut my dyed ends. Your hair has made remarkable progress.
