It's that time again, and since I flat ironed my hair this last week of December, I decided to post my "End of the Year Length Check." (Here is last year's length check)

This year I have had a lot of growth, a lot of experimenting, and a lot of damage due to not using heat protectant. I ended up trimming four times this year due to breakage from the heat, and from constantly wearing a styles with bobby pins that I would keep in the same position.

Towards the end, I started back my old routine - oil rinsing and deep conditioning weekly. So far it seems to be going great. I can not wait to see what 2014 holds for my hair. Maybe finally I will be able to reach Waist Length.


I will not post until the New Year! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!!

If you are with me for the No heat challenge like last year, please update me on how you are making out as well. I tried to link the past mini "no heat challenge for 90 days results" but I could not find it in all these posts. Just know that it was a significant change in my hair's health and growth.

This was last year's end of the year length check:
