April update

Hair length looks the same, maybe a little thicker. I desperately need a trim. Real life literally has hit me (I was in a minor car accident earlier this month) and my hair is on the back burner now.

Most of the next few months will be in buns and doing treatments to help myself out.

It's much thicker. Take care of your body first and hair will follow.

Sorry to hear about your accident and wishing you a speedy recovery.

Your hair is definitely fuller but it is longer too. It looks like your left side caught up with your right side. So you got extra length on that side. It is also possible that the crown area grew longer to catch up with the lower layers.

Finally got around to wash day. I have been wearing sloppy flat twist for a while now.

I've started by rinsing, applying conditioner and then detangling and removing shed hair. I shampooed once with diluted Elucence Moisturizing shampoo and then shampooed again with Madison Reed Color Shampoo.

I air dried, applied the K18 treatment and let it air dry some more. After a few hours, I applied my deep conditioner and put my hair into 4 flat twists.

My plan is to rinse out the conditioner and do a curly set either this afternoon or tomorrow morning and then diffuse.

My growth and retention are coming along. My bang hasn't moved in months but that isn't unusual. It is usually the last to grow. My crown on the sides is finally touching the bottom of my ear. The crown in the back is getting very close to my nape. My nape is touching my collar bone. Hopefully, by year end all of my layers are between neck length and APL.

I stretched a few strands and they reach apl. I think I’m going to need to do a length check and trim during august because I noticed some thinning ends. I hope I can reach full apl by the end of the year. It seems I need to stay on top of my trims.

My install is holding up well but my scalp is starting to itch more even though I have been washing or using dry shampoo ever 3-4 days. Means it's time to take it down. I don't have plans for the holiday so I'll probably take it down Friday or Saturday and do some treatments.
