Well, you can find her vlogging here. Please subscribe to her blog and to her Youtube channel!
I haven't posted in a year. I guess I lost my momentum and life got in the way, BUT there are soooo many wonderful and informative natural hair vloggers on Youtube that there is more than enough information out there to keep you informed and motivated!
My hair has grown like a weed since last I posted (over a year ago). I cut about four inches off in the back and two inches off in the front last month. I had never cut that much off before, but my hair is still long and I could stand a couple more inches to come off. I find that it holds a curl better after my major trim and my re-ti's are easier on m yscalp and faster. I had developed swelling of my ends over time which made my re-ti's less comfortable, but now the length of the lock is more uniform and my last re-ti was a breeze.
Sorry, but I don't have any great photos of myself at max length hair. It was about halfway down my back before my trim.
Before my trim:

Happy & Nappy,

How long has it been? This is a 42 month post. I see a post labeled 39 months, but those were yukky iphone photos that were under exposed. (I got a new camera :o)
My routine hasn't changed. I washed 3 days ago with a clarifying shampoo. Hot six oiled my scalp. Used a bit of a 'cholesterol-like' or 'mayonnaise-like' conditioner as a leave in. I rolled my hair in fairly small sections on perm rods (grey and white size). When I ran out of perm rods I used some sponge rollers sans sponges. I sat under a bonnet dryer - the kind you attach to a blow dryer...I'm more careful since I think I burned out 5 locs last fall...a post for another time...
I still hate to wash and do so about every two to three weeks or so. This set should last me a couple of weeks or until I shampoo again.
I know my ends look as if I bleached them. I think it's just their age and perhaps the sun. In fact, I put in a bit of dark brown color - mostly at the roots and perhaps 5 inches out - so the ends weren't covered with color. Been fighting those greys around my hairline, but I mostly rely on the mascara fix as I am particular about maintaining as strong and full a hairline as I can.
Hope all is well with y'all. Love your feedback.

"A loyal reader sent me these pics of her precious infant daughter wearing her first lacefront wig. She writes: “It’s never too early for my baby to start looking glamorous like Beyonce!” Awww, she’s a cutie. Normally I would frown on this sort of thing. But I try to keep an open mind and remember that hoodrats raise their children differently and I can’t knock their unconventional child rearing methods just because I don’t understand them. Mom said she had the wig custom made with human hair to match her own lacefront. “I wouldn’t be caught dead without my lacefront and my baby won’t either!”
I’m saying this prayer to you today,
Please help me get away.
The parents you gave [me] were rejected by you,
I came out the womb with no clue.
You created me grand,
Tiny and precious and not in command.
These pictures will live in infamy,
A pretty baby made to look ugly.
My mommy and daddy are too stupid to know,
That my hair will eventually grow.
Dear Lord, Please help me leave.
My idiot parents gave me a weave.

Who knew they made lacefront wigs for babies?
