relaxer day 24.03.13 I was pleasently surprised to realise that I had passed arm pit length (APL) on this healthy hair journey of mine!!! I manged to leave my hair alone for a day before taking to it with my cabide scissors! My ends, in my opinion, were not so great so they just had to go!"
I probably could have waited a week and trimmed on a rollerset or something but I think the flat ironing exposed all the short comings of my hair so it gave a clear indication of what my ends REALLY look like.

I trimmed using my normal ‘faux stylist’ process. I actually made a couple of mistakes this time regarding the the direction of the cuts when it came to the front (sods law) but it was nothing to cry about and it was easily rectified. I always make sure I cut less than I need to and then cut again to ensure that I get the right shape and length.

Afterwards I got my lovely boyfriend to take a few snap shots for me [instead of dicing with death (or potential paralysis) at the top of the stairs which I what I usually end up doing when I take these update photos!].
Below are a few comparison shots:
I was planning to do a length check in August (I was trying to only do one a year so I don't obsess about length/thickness) but this relaxer day seems to have superseded that and turned into a fully fledged hair update! I may do another one in a few months time but I think that will be more of a thickness check as that is my ongoing goal right now.
