I'm officially 9 months into my natural hair journey. The beginning of the month started off great but towards the end of the month, I was yearning to try a protective style. Don't get me wrong, I love wearing my fro but I want to retain length and protect my ends. One of the downfalls of wearing a free fro is that you have more single strand knots. Those little buggers can be tough to deal with. But it has been great to see how far I've come in 9 months, even with the minor setback in September.

My Go-to Styles this month:
I was in a bit of a hairstyle funk this month. I only tried one new hairstyle, a perm rod set and that didn't go so well. The rest of the time I either wore a twist out or my fro, which of course meant a lot of single strand knots!
Hair Regimen: I started using Bee Sensitive Oil Free Hair Serum and purchased a few other products to try. I have a few other products on my wish list but nothing that I necessarily need. I still wash my hair twice a week, mostly by co-washing it. But, for the most part my regimen is still the same. At some point down the road I'll try washing my hair just once a week.
Plans for next month: I need to get a trim, actually just a dusting-no more than 1/2 inch off. I would also love to experiment with protective styles that are quick and easy to do.
Only 3 months until my 1 year anniversary!
Until next time!
