End of my 1st year pictures

Almost a year

Hi all. I have to say thanks to all the encouraging notes sent to me since the disaster hair cut.

Its been almost a year since I did the BC and I am still mourning the loss of my bad hair cut. Its such a huge setback. Id been looking forward to this month and all the hair I would have had. I know...get over it. Its still growing and doing great. I can do my puffs and its fine. The bald spot is practically gone. I cant twist very well but it can be done.

I only cowash once a week or two....though I expect to increase that as it gets hotter. I do shampoo once a month or so. My newest favorite thing is apple vinegar rinses.(i part vinegar to 3 parts water) My hair comes out soooo curly and soft. Man gracious the stuff stinks to high heaven....and can burn alittle. Luckily the smell is gone from your hair once you rinse it out. I havent done a clarifying with baking soda yet but it is on the list.

The neatest thing is that I have found a fake puff ponytail. I love it!!! I know its cheating but it is simply perfect! I think my hair will be in the same place by the end of the year if not sooner...I hope. I dont wear it everyday but 3-4 times a week.

Im going to try to post more now that I have more time. The court decided to give our girls back to their bio mom last month. We were granted visitation one day a week for 6 hours. Its been one of the hardest thing to deal with. We know the girls are not safe. The 4 yr old tells us bad things happen and the 2 yr old is...well 2 but more clingy especially to DH. Yet when it is time to go we have to let them go even though we dont want to and they dont either...tell them to be strong and good...and pray nothing truly horrible happens to them. Child services only seems to want to protect kids after the damage is done. Ahh well...i wont get started. Pray for peace and safety.
