Hey! I hope this post finds everyone well. I wanted to share something natural-hair related with you all.
This past May, I did a second BC (big chop) - for many reasons. I've been enjoying the new journey and look forward to healthy hair growth again. In July, due to the humidity, I started installing Marley Twists again as a protective style. It made life so much easier for me as I didn't have to style/twist my hair daily or worry about frizz. I decided to wear my hair out again this week since it hasn't been humid anymore. It has been 4 months since my BC (so I'd estimate about 2 inches of growth which is average, though I haven't measured). I noticed that my hair is "bigger" so the growth was apparent.
I'm happy with the health of my hair now and I am still enjoying the cut and how it is growing out :) I don't plan to do another BC, but just regular trims to keep healthy ends. I want to my hair to grow out again and just enjoy the process.
Here is a comparison shot -
