Rece’s Final GOC Update


by Rece (Fifth Wave) of A Hair Story

Over the past month or so, I’ve done a few different buns. I usually find a style I like and I wear it for the entire week. I must say that, although I’ve been bunning, I fell short this month when it came to moisturizing my hair.

To end the Grow Out Challenge (GOC), I figured it would only be right if I did a length check.

It’s funny because, in the beginning, I was dying for my hair to grow. I would have done a length check every week if I could. Nowadays, I’m not that interested in doing a length check. I think it’s mainly because my hair has reached a length where I have more options.

Before we get to the pics, let’s keep in mind that I trimmed my hair twice (maybe three times) during the GOC. It was so necessary! My hair would have really suffered if I waited until now to trim it. Of course I wore the same melon colored shirt to keep it consistent.

I’d say it looks like about 2 inches of growth. Maybe a bit more.

After I did my length check, I blow dried my hair a little and I trimmed it AGAIN. I am at the point in trimming it where I don’t have to trim as much. For some reason, the right side of my head was very bushy at the ends, moreso the back than the front, which is what prompted me to trim it. Weird, because I sleep on the left side.

I’ve enjoyed the GOC and seeing everyone’s hair progress. Don’t forget about me. I’ll still be chronicling my journey over at A Hair Story.

    • LOL!!! I’m not done trimming. Those ssk’s still plague my life! I actually enjoy trimming my hair, even from my relaxed days. I love the bluntness and healthy feeling of freshly trimmed ends.


        • Right that’s why I’m not trimming any time soon. Well, I’m not trimming any real length but I think I’ll do a little something when I redo my twists – which reminds me. Guess what I figured out how to do finally? Rope Twists!!! OMG they are so much tighter and neater on my hair than regular twists. I did only a few that were actually redos of regular twists. When I wash I’m going to redo the whole head!

          Yes I was at work watching YouTube videos trying to learn how to rope twist LOL


  1. A little late! But I love the “belted under bun” in the 3rd and 4th pic. I’ll be trying that one!

    Also, loving the versatility with your protective styles.
