Earlier this year I wrote a post about how scalp psoriasis led to a major hair setback last fall. I ended up losing a lot of hair due to all of the daily shampooing and detangling it took to keep my scalp under control. After a few months I was left with see through ends and breakage. It was disheartening because my hair was actually in really good shape before my scalp went out of control. As a result, I decided to give myself a trim and move forward with an updated healthy hair routine.
Since I have layers and bangs, the longest part is in the back which is why I take pictures so I can see where it falls. At first I didn’t really think that it looked like much because I still have a ways to go before I reach my current goal of APL. However, when I compared it to a picture that I took last year I actually saw how far I’ve come. The other thing I noticed is that my hair isn’t as short as I thought it was since my cut in January. I was scared that maybe I cut a little too much since I did it on slightly stretched hair. Am I going to make it to APL by May…my 2 year Nappiversary? For me, it’s still hard to say. Either way, I can see that I am making progress.
