I got my hair ombred...

So the ombre hair trend has been around for a while now and I know I am about a year late getting on this but I have to admit that when I first saw it I thought it looked like hugely overgrown roots and couldn't be bothered to try it. However, I am an equal opportunity hair trend experimenter so I did eventually try it out and I am soo loving it...

Me and my ombred hair
Ok, first, I really need to get a better camera. Second, as much as I wanted to try the ombre look you know I wasn't about the bleach my hair so I did the next best thing and hooked myself up with a custom ordered wig from rpgshow ( Specifications are: 1st 8inches color 1b, next 8 inches color 4 and the last 2 inches color 27.

I made it to waist length - Apparently Naija/west african/kinky/4b hair can grow!

Hi ladies,

So I know I have been mia for a while. I have been super busy, but rest assured my hair has been growing. I finally made it to my goal of waist length. I have pretty uneven, somewhat scraggly ends and I will be getting a trim soon but right now I am reveling in my newly gotten rapunzelesque locks! Here are some pictures below:

Uneven ends :-(

My ends are thin, I definitely need a 2 or 3 inch trim which is totally reasonable considering the fact that I haven't trimmed my hair since I started this journey in April. I'm pretty happy with my length retention though. My hair grows at 1/2 and inch every month (which is pretty standard) and I retained everything. I don't think I'll trim right away. I'll aim for tailbone length in 3months, then I'll trim to waistlength... Excited much? :-)
