“Before and after 4 years of growth”

“Third time cutting my hair short, third time going through the painfully slow process of growing it back out. One year and 3 months of growth!”

“Practicing my braiding skills on my son’s hair”

“Keep smiling, friends!”

“Didn’t think my hair would turn out ok without either curling or straightening my hair. Just messy waves...”

“The photo on the left was 5/18/19, the photo on the right is present day. I can finally put it in a proper ponytail. Just took 718 days, but who’s counting.”

“I’ll keep growing it until I’m tired of it.”

“Can’t decide if I want to keep my long(ish) hair or go back to short! My hair is naturally thick and curly/wavy.”
