My Ever Changing Faces


i think i was about six or seven here in block plaits, my mom used to style my hair this way a lot

Since I’ve embarked on growing healthy long relaxed hair, I’ve decided to go back in history via mt pics to try and see exactly where my hair line started to fading
My mom was always very vigilant with my hair linse since her’s was badly damaged as a child by my grandmother.

As long as I’ve known my mom I’ve never seen her with her hair tied up in a pony because of her hair line.

That makes me so sad. Like getting your hair into a pony is something you do without even thinking about it but for some people its not that easy a think to do.

So together with growing healthy hair I’ve also embarked on bringing back my hurrr’line… And in this process I’m hoping through my experiments that I will find a help for my mom too.

My goal length is bra-strap length by this time next year. I’ve never had a problem with growing my hair out but its never grown past my shoulders.

But I recon that’s because I just let it grow, I never really “took care” of it. So I’m pretty sure this time around its going to thrive! Now there’s a fun goal to look forward to in the new year!

i had just started working here, was about 18 or 19 not sure what to call this hair style

the best part about the s_curl was how easy it was to maintain

this is what my hair looks like currently, its very short n relaxed after my s-curl days.
