You're with your hair everyday... do something (at least in my case) to your hair EVERY DAY... so sometimes it's really hard to see the progress (or even setbacks.. hopefully not though) you are making because you look at your hair every day.
Then YouTube doesn't help.. you see all these women whose hair grows INHUMANLY fast (I'm actually probably one of the ones people say this about though lol) and you're like... "Man, my hair isn't going ANYWHERE!"
I saw a video of one YouTube who went from barely SL to WAIST LENGTH in a YEAR! And I'm like what the heck do I need to be doing? Because I want waist length and it's taking what seems to be forever lol
Tonight, while moisturizing my hair I decided to take a picture of my hair (from the front) to see how much progress I was making... and you know what.. I was actually pleasantly surprised!
Measuring your hair from the front can sometimes be tricky because it doesn't show your full length.. but even with that being said... I just saw how far I had came and got my motivation back.
My hair was air dried and moisturized in this picture. This is the back 1/4th section of my hair... and actually this was one of the 4 sections split in HALF... and even that piece was thick... so if I had done the entire section it would have been even thicker!
My texlax stretch is actually set to end NEXT WEEK on August 2nd. But I'm really thinking I can go about 4 weeks longer, if not more!
I'm still contemplating transitioning as well so I don't want to do anything too hastily and have to start a stretch all over with 3 months already in the bank so to speak lol
