My name is Leighanne, and I live in Northwest Alabama.
This journey has been a long and beautiful one, losing and regaining faith in my ability to have gorgeous locks. We're gonna make it.
Let's see if I remember this LJ cut business.
It all started one June evening, with help from some friends :
a week later, I was being weird and gross in California. (sorry, absolutely best photo I could find. sad.)
a month later, back in Oakland, they started to fall..
at 5 months old, the back matted up quite nicely, and the rest became pretty much brushable hair again
7 months of letting them be
at 8 months I backcombed again!
at 9 months, i apparently wasn't doin' it right, and back to brushable it was
so i backcombed and palmrolled like hell
then did some crocheting
my babies were shapin up last week
and today, at 10 months, lookin; much better =D
