My Growth and Setbacks 2003-2010


Throwback Hair Picture - September 2004

Hi friends,

In an attempt to make myself feel better about my self induced thin ends (can we say "cry baby"? LOL) I decided to review some of my old hair pictures.  If you feel silly about taking pictures of your hair, this is exactly why pictures are helpful.  You can always look back, be proud about your progress, and motivate yourself to keep going. 

Here's a picture of my hair on September 14, 2004.  This is when I officially started taking care of my hair and my goal was to gain length and thickness.

Here's a picture of my hair at waist length in November 2009.  This is the longest my hair has ever been. Keep in mind that I've suffered numerous setbacks and was constantly trimming to gain thickness.

Five years may be a long time, but guess what? Five years are going to pass regardless of what we do.  I hope this serves as an inspiration for those of you who are just starting out.  If I can do it, so can you.  

Where will your hair be in 5 years?

Thanks for those inspirational words and pics because I just started my goal this year, and right now I feel like my hair is at a standstill and I really want to achieve length and a lot thickness...hopefully by the end of the year I'll see better results!

You've come such a long way, and I'm sure you know that this minor blip in your hair journey will be overcome just like the others.

I've been learning a lot about hair care from you and all the others on the internet generous enough to share their secrets with the world. Thank you for being gracious enough to share your setbacks as well as your victories with us.
