It’s a new year and we can expect lots of new events by the local group Colorado Urban Naturals. This is the same organization that coordinated the Denver Natural Hair Care Expo last summer. The event will be a smaller workshop on how to make a head wrap using your own fabric. There will also be some discussion on natural hair color options for natural hair. Tickets are still available for this event which is only two weeks away!
This last couple of weeks I’ve been kicking myself for the frequent trimming that has kept my hair journey stuck in neutral. Right now my hair sits just below APL (arm pit length) in back and layered in front with bangs (when straight). My main motivation for going natural was to grow my hair longer. I figured I was on a five year plan but saw how much faster my hair grew (or broke less) during the first year natural. I was so excited and figured I would see Bra Strap Length hair (BSL) some time around the halfway mark. When that didn’t happen, I started to get down on myself and wonder what I was doing wrong. It also didn’t help that I kept seeing progress pics and videos from others who gained length and thickness in what seemed to be much less time.
