First of all, thank you to all who commented on yesterday's progress photos. It made me feel very good, and I really appreciate it.
It's been a long haul just to get where I am, so having people cheer me on helps like you wouldn't believe.
Usually, when I'm just at home, I wear my hair up to keep it protected from wear and tear. While I do like to wear my hair loose when I go out, it's usually up when I'm here.
Today though, I wore my hair loose for part of the day, and I caught myself looking in the mirror with surprise a couple of times. I am yet again noticing how much longer it's getting, especially in the front.
It's such a great feeling to actually be able to see myself that my hair is growing. So often, we don't actually notice the changes in our own hair, because we see it every day.
Perhaps because I wear my hair up most of the time, I view my hair the way others might who haven't seen me for a while.
So I guess wearing one's hair up serves more than the purpose of protecting the hair and keeping it out of harm's way. It also allows us to notice the difference when it's worn down.
I'm really feeling positive about the way my hair feels and looks these days too. It's really been soft and shiny.
All in all, this has been a delightfully good hair day. I think I'll just leave it at that.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend.
'Til tomorrow my friends. Much love to all.
