I finally got my hair relaxed last week. My hair was so damaged and uneven from all the shedding that I had to cut about 3 inches to even things out. I am now back to APL a long way away from waist length (insert sad face). Despite the shedding and cut, I am overall happy with the state of my hair. It's not as bad as it was with Tman and it still feels somewhat long. I am looking forward to the end of the shedding and hair growing again.
I am thinking of braiding my hair so that I don't have to see all the hair falling everyday. My cousin has these super cute braids and I kinda want to do something like this. Here she is with Jbird.
My new length, my ends look much better after the trim. I am happy with the overall state of my hair.
I officially have a receding hairline. My right side is the worst. I have an actual patch of hair missing, gotta love a bald spot (I am being sarcastic of course)
Luckily for me I figured out a way to style my hair in a way that would hide the bald spot. This allows me to wear my hair out without shame. My hair is thinner but it works. I might get away with not wearing a wig this time around but I am not holding my breath.
My Jbird is worth it all. I am hating the hair loss but loving this sweet face.
