I fake the funk really well, but I have come a LONG way
Here are some pictures documenting my journey:
January 2012. Bunning was just my life and I really didn’t care. I was hiding bad crown breakage. By this time, however, protein was incorporated in my regimen, so you’d never know I had any breakage. The first few inches are texlaxed. Not purposely, I just don’t believe in corrective relaxers fully due to fear. They work, but I had it done once, it took a year to get my hair back on track and I vowed never to correct again.
May or June 2012. Not sure. I hated this V. This is how my hair naturally grows, but I also didn’t really know how to trim my ends, so when I did trim, I was making the V deeper. I was a little below BSL here.
August 2012. The day of my friends birthday, I hated that damn V and I had been watching Feye’s Self Trimming Method for like 3 days. So I just said “Go With God Tasia!” And did the method and cut. Unlike when I used to go to the salon, I was glad to see it go. I was between APL and BSL at this point.
I never took a picture of the breakage when it first happened (I was just embarrassed) but I finally decided to take one. My crown was maybe 4 inches long, so when I would rollerset, it would look so thin and cheesy. After cutting it a few times, more like 10 times, its finally close to SL.
