Well, today is Progress Photo Day. My progress is not as stunning as it was from February to May, as I cut almost two inches off part of my hair earlier this month, in order to be rid of my deep "v". However, only the very middle of the back lost length. The sides have indeed grown and I am pleased with the progress. I am about 2 inches away from BSL right now, and I won't be having any more large trims in the next year or two.
I just needed to start to straighten out my hemline, as the deep V was unwieldy, and I prefer a slight U-shape to a deep V.
Since my big trim in early June, my hair has grown 5/8 inches. I'm pretty happy with my length, and I'm really looking forward to the next few months when my hair will really begin to look long.
Here is the photographic evidence. Unfortunately you can see that the light conditions are different. I wish I could always reproduce the same lighting, but it's just not possible.
To AutumnLeaves, it is not your imagination. My hair really is thicker than it used to be. In fact it's much thicker than it was before I cut my bangs, and bangs do take away from nape thickness. I attribute this to less breakage due using coconut oil on my hair before I touch up my roots. I don't have scientific proof, but the hair that's grown since I've started using coconut oil is much thicker. For me, that's proof enough.
To ShamRock, I wish you a happy Canada Day too, and thank you SchnauzerMom and Hairstorm for your good wishes on the day.
'Til tomorrow, my friends. Love to all.
