Month 7.

Month 7.

7 things about my 7 months so far:
  1. I have seen substantial hair growth. Awesome.
  2. I used hairspray and product and have blow dried, teased and curled my hair ONCE. Yes. I did. It was this last Friday, May 11th (on my exact 7-month mark) and it was for my best friend's wedding in Oklahoma. A hairstylist came and did it because: (1) I was a bridesmaid and was not about to embarrass myself by friar-tucking it on Ashton's wedding day. (2) We all had our hair done and (3) I refused to do my own hair... If I was going to make an exception to my rules, someone else was going to do it for me! I said I would make one exception, for my sister's wedding in September, but this one was not taken into account when I made my rules in October because she hadn't been engaged yet! Oh... and yes I do plan on posting some photos from that day as soon as I see some from her photographer!
  3. When measuring hair growth, it's imperative to use a white t-shirt. Black does not work.
  4. It would have been helpful if I'd have measured my hair next to a ruler each time. Or if I'd have made notches on the wall with a pencil, like a child's growth chart. Lesson learned.
  5. A year is a really, really long time.
  6. Daniel basically begs me to give this whole thing up every day. I almost give in each time.
  7. Apparently, I switch cell phone covers every 3 months.

  1. Why does Daniel beg you to give it up??

    I didn't even notice your cover of your phone changing until you pointed it out!

    Your hair growth is really beautiful! :)

  4. ok so daniel begs you to give it up, is this because you sometimes complain about it? lol.

    I did notice the cell phone thing and was totally gonna leave a comment about that!

    I bet your hair looked really good on the day of the wedding.

    I wish my hair was growing like this!

  8. Wow, I just found your blog and I think your challenge is great! I'm rather anti-hair products, coloring, and heat styling for myself, but I'm set to start going to cosmetology school shortly and I'd already decided that even with all the cool new skills I will learn, for the most part I want to leave my hair alone and let it be healthy! I think your blog will help inspire me to stick to my goal.
