Mary's Au Naturale Timeline
Member Journals and Timelines
I'm Mary, and this is my timeline.
I've been washing my hair with baking soda since November, and rinse occasionally with ACV or nettle tea. I tossed the comb yesterday (5/21/14).
Since my hair is so short I may only update the timeline monthly or bi-weekly, but we'll see how things go!
I gotta long ways to go, but I'm enjoying every moment.
My hair separates and re-separates itself constantly because of the curls.
Here's a view of the back:
Update to week 3!
My hair has been curlier than it has ever been in my entire life. Instead of the curls separating and re-separating daily, they all have their own sections. Some of the curls are tight and compact, others are fluffy.
The back still looks the same as it did from day one.
Another picture of week 3:
Aaaaaand its been 5 weeks since i've brushed my hair! And I don't miss the comb one bit. Went for a swim in the ocean twice this week, ahhh man I love that sweeet sweet salty water.
So here I am at 5 weeks, my hair is a mess. The other day my mum pointed that out. Now I'm smelly AND i have messy hair. Yay!
I started taking a biotin supplement a month ago, and so far I've noticed a difference in my nail strength.
If my hair were longer it may be locking up by this point.
7 week update!
I can't get any fingers through my hair without snagging knots.... there are knots, lots of knots! So I just don't touch my hair anymore (besides occasional separating), which was a harder habit to break than I thought.
And here is a picture of the back, there are knots but they are hard to see. But my hair has gained a lot of length and thickness in a short period of time.
