|My Holiday Make-Up Look
with Roller Set hair
The Holidays were fast and furious which left me feeling like I needed another break after it was all over. Still, it was a lot of fun dressing up and going out with the family. I especially enjoyed finally getting to see how long my hair was after the two Hair Growth Challenges I participated in over at K.I.S.S.
One of the challenges encouraged participants to start using Hot Oil treatments on a regular basis while the other asked everyone to start using a Growth Aid to help speed up hair growth. I kinda fell off the bandwagon on the first one because since I sometimes have gel in my hair, I wasn’t too crazy about applying oils on top of that to do the treatments. However, I do feel like the second challenge introduced me to an interesting growth aid that appears to actually work. I’ll speak on that later on down the road.
The two challenges ended in December so I was really excited to see if my hair reaped the benefits of all that hard work. I am happy to announce that I have finally reached my goal of APL length hair! The top layers are still hovering around my collar bone thanks to that mini big chop I did last year but the back and bottom layers are doing really well. Since I like to wear my hair in big curls I can see that I won’t be satisfied until my hair is around BSL or longer. Right now with curls my hair sits just below my shoulders.
I also needed a trim so I took care of that and decided to wear my hair down for the holidays. Since I’ve been using roller sets to stretch my hair out I only ended up flat ironing the entire length of my hair once. The rest of the time I was able to enjoy a straight look with the help of my rollers and a little flat ironing at the roots. My hair has reverted back and is going to be put away for awhile again but it was fun while it lasted.
