    60th Month - 5 YEAR Anniversary!!!!!

    It's been 5 years already!!!!!!

    I am so excited to now embark on 5+ years of my natural journey. I'm glad that I was able to document my journey on a monthly basis though tedious at certain points along the way.

    My aim was a monthly documention for at least 5 years because when I started my journey I did not come across any albums that were based on a month by month progress & I was curious as to what was to be expected on monthly basis as far as growth & maintenance. So I thought to myself, why not start one?

    So I embarked on my natural journey documenting my month to month progress. There were good & bad moments: starting off there were more bad than good moments, since I had to learn how to deal with not only handling my natural hair, but with what others thought about my hair & their occassional ignorant comments. Within a couple of months I got over the weird looks & comments because I figured am not telling others what to do with their hair so they had no right to tell me what to do with mine.

    Over the years, I have learned a great deal about myself, my hair, & what works for me. I've also had a couple set backs (sometime in my 4th year I had to take off ~3inches on two separate ocassions, about 2 months apart due to damaged ends [heat, etc.]) but I learned my lesson & continued on. I am now at ~31inches total length (around waistlength) & have been maintaining a trim schedule, trimming every 2-3 months & sometimes in between as needed.

    I enjoy protective styles & love updos so I try to keep it interesting with my twists & braids.

    So far, I have acheived my goal to document my natural hair journey for at least 5 years, but am not sure whether I will be continuing a monthly documentary, but may instead have one album containing randomly taken "5 Years & Beyond" pics. Updates may be less frequent at times...who knows...we shall see.

    In the meantime, hope you enjoy my pics & continued happy & healthy growing. ;)


    12/25/08: MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE & HAPPY NEW YEAR!
