At the end of 2013, our book group was discussing our “Three Words for 2014.” Mine were “grow, grow and grow.” I’m not sure how well I’ve done on the personal growth front, but the hair growth has definitely proceeded, if slower than I like.
Here’s the 2014 Hair Year in Review:
January: Lizard Mohawk to Fauxhawk
The first month of 2015 was all about getting the mohawk to grow out (and seeing how much gray I actually have!)
February-March-April: Spring Green
I was a little sad that I didn’t do green in the big hair year, so February started out with a dark green:
That was much more minty by March:
And nearly gone by April:
May-June-July: Red and Growing
I decided to go read again, and got another trim.
Looking back and the pictures, the summer was a fruitful hair growing season, because this picture was in early June:
And this one was in late July:
August-September-October-November: Back to brown and growing, growing, growing.
By the end of summer, I went back to something close to my natural brown, and endured/enjoyed variations on the curly-puff, almost-afro, as my hair got longer and longer, but still wanted to stick up.
December: Burgundy and almost grown?
Did a quick dye job with some off-the shelf ‘Burgundy.” It’s finally long enough it hangs more than it sticks up.
It even hangs from under my hat, which was not the case a year ago! So lots of growing, but still a bit more to go
2015 Hair Goals:
1. To be able to pull it back into a ponytail when I work out.
2. More fun colors.
3. Straighten it again, temporary extensions maybe?
