Length Check – 1 Year 3 Months

It’s been well over a year since I chose to go bald. I have hit  the milestone of 1 whole year and 3 months. And I’m not bored of this whole healthy hair blogging thing. That’s a long time. But also really short in the context of me being on a journey to tailbone length hair. And yes, I am still aiming for that ridiculous and lofty goal. I’m expecting to get there by 2025, give or take a year. I’d be happy for it to happen at some point this millennia if I’m honest.

Length Check – One Year

I hadn’t envisaged having to take out a braid to do my length check. I definitely hadn’t thought through the timing of installing my first set of braids either. I was a bit busy in November so this post is a little late. But November 1st 2017 marked 1 year since I shaved all my hair off and felt the cool winter breeze blowing over my scalp. I have to admit I miss those few days of baldy baddie life! It really was such a short time. I suppose I could just shave it all off again! Ideas…

Now I Know My Hair…(cont’d)

Now where was I… So that miracle oil, coconut oil may not actually be a miracle for me with my low porosity follicles. Which is a great shame as I have about 14 jars on top of a cupboard in my house. Oops! So some say it is too heavy for my type of hair but I honestly say I am on the fence about it. I’ve had no ill effects using it, I quite like it, not just how it makes my hair feel but, and this may make me a bit of a freak, I like melting it…

Week 3: My Old Hair Care Routine vs My New Hair Care Routine (Part 2)

Okay, so I won’t be needing the wide tooth comb, or any comb, anytime soon but I’m looking forward to when I do! Week three and counting…So I previously was talking about my routine, my old bad habits, the things I want to do going forward, the so-called rules of good hair and also the new techniques and terms that I have learnt. To that end, I will pick up where I left off. PRE-POOING Pre-pooing is that weird thing that seems pointless but it really does have a point. When you wash your hair, no matter what you use,…

Week 2: My Old Hair Care Routine vs My New Hair Care Routine (Part 1)

As you can see, I’m making some real progress here. It’s crazy that the photos I took to announce my baldness to the world, beautifully taken by my lovely husband, are now out of date. I had that look for such a short amount of time, I’m not even sure if it was worth going THAT short. But it was fun while it lasted. I do not think my hair growth rate is even close to half an inch a month (average for everyone) but we will plod on regardless because I have no other choice. Now I am emerging…

One Week On, Still Bald…Sort Of

I guess there is no going back now! I’m not sure why it has taken me a week to come to that realisation but I’m here now. It’s all still looking a little bare up there but if I run my hand over my head there are short little hairs on every inch of my scalp. You can even see it from a distance, not too far, maybe about 3 feet but there is definitely something there. Apparently, hair grows on average 0.5 inches per month and I’m well on my way…I think. I’m not sure how long it has…

Who Needs Hair Anyway?

.Hi. Yay to my first post!! Woo! So that girl above is me. First picture is me with my fro before I took the plunge. The 2nd and 3rd photo are what happened next. You can even see the shine off my perfectly bald head, that’s how smooth I went. It’s quite an odd sensation doing a wet shave on your head. After months of psyching myself up for this it’s done. I am not disappointed, I am feeling myself right now. Right now, I feel good, but I was worried I might end up looking like Sisqo. You know,…
