Yesterday my sister sent me pictures of her using Curlformers. My response was “Who are you and what have you done with my sister?” I honestly thought it was an instance of body snatching.

Starting today, I’m going to post stories and videos of other women who have achieved healthy, long hair (both natural and relaxed).

I’m keeping it pretty simple today and just wearing my hair down. The pin straight look isn’t going to last long though because I like lots of body. So I will likely add some curls in a couples of days. I’m tempted to get a set of hot rollers. I love my steam rollers but

Here’s a picture of my braid out in August 2008. This was taken one month before my stylist induced setback. My hair had a blunt cut and was mid back length. I’m still trying to get my hair back to this thickness. This was my regimen during that time: Wash day: pre-poo treatment with hot
