I finally straightened my hair and put on my trusty white tee to tally up my length retention. In total I retained … (drum roll please) 2 1/2 inches … womp womp wooooomp. lol. I was looking for more retention, but I need to factor in the trim/cuts I did throughout the year that equal about 2 inches. When I started the GOC, my longest strand was 8 1/2 inches. Now it is 11 inches!! The shorter hair on the sides have finally made it down to the red line. I desperately need a trim and that will probably take about an inch of growth too. I am currently looking for a stylist to do that for me. After the trim, my hair will be more even and the ends will be healthier looking. lol.

Going into this winter, I’m all about the protective styles! Buning will be my go to style. I’m also in search of more conditioners and hair cremes to get me through these dry months. I plan to continue the GOC for the rest of my life, even if I don’t record on the blog. It’s really exciting to see what hair can do if you take good care of it. I’m still learning how to take care of it, but I’ve come a long way!

New Hair Goals:

  • Wash weekly, Co Wash as needed (once a week)
  • Deep condition weekly (Saturdays)
  • Spot Snip (see a single strand knot and snip that joint lol)
  • BUN
  • Research new products
  • Make my own hair creme
  • Retain more length this WINTER


And now, what you’ve all been waiting … or scrolling forward for 😉 …
