i'm finally back! i hadn't been uploading pics because my mouse broke. i couldn't upload and click on fotki, even with control keys. i finally got a new mouse though so i have a few pics from the end of May, June and July. hadn't been doing much while i was gone, since i was still discouraged about my twists.
anyway, i've compared my recent braidout to the one i did earlier this year, and i saw a lot of growth. thats great, because just today i was thinking i hadn't made any progress.
my flat twisting is getting better too. and i must have hair anorexia, because irl i swore those flat twists looked thin and wimpy, but in the pics they are juicy. so i dunno... maybe i'm overly critical of my hair.
