Here are the hair update photos from when I relaxed my hair after a 7 month stretch. My hair always grows longer on one side than the other so I had it trimmed as even as possible. I lost about an inch or so of growth, but I feel better starting off with fresh cut ends. My hair is getter thicker thanks to applying castor oil and other essential oils mixed to my scalp and doing scalp massages at least 2 times a week. I can definitely tell the difference, especially when my hair is air dried and not flat ironed. I'm starting another 6 month stretch and this time I'm not going to trim in between or after unless absolutely necessary. These pics were taken about 2 months before I relaxed and my hair has actually grown back even. So, the journey continues and I'll try to update again at the end of my 6 month stretch.
