  1. It looks great! (can u tell I was stalking ur IG!) It looks so thick now! It sucks to have to cut but your hair looks luscious and flowy and gorgeous!

  2. You've certainly got a talent! If I tried to cut my own hair it would end up a disaster! Your hair looks amazing in the after-pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Had you been using a lot of heat prior to your setback? I know you said your wool coat may have caused it too, but just another thought for something that may have contributed to it. I sense some air drying and heatless hairstyle videos on the way, yes?? haha Your hair looks much healthier now.

  4. haha, it's all good. Thanks for keeping on my toes, Shika! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Thanks, Thara! ๐Ÿ™‚ I always get super nervous when it's time to make the cut based on that same fear, lol.

  6. If you consider sitting under the hooded dryer to dry my rollersets, then yes. But I had not blow dried or flat ironed since my December relaxer. But it's certainly something that I considered (avoiding the heat all together) because my hair is very fine. Thanks, Rae. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Your hair turned out great! Even though almost everyone on a hair journey hates trims and/or cuts it made your hair look fierce girl! lol

  8. It looks gorgeous! Don't worry about the lost length, you're hair is still pretty long and your ends look great ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. It will grow back thicker and fuller in no time ๐Ÿ™‚ We can learn from our setbacks !

  10. Your hair looks great Kim. I agree with Lesley, your hair is still long and you have great ends now! Love how thick your hair is.

  11. WOW!!!! You took off all you needed, and it still is quite long and looking better than ever! Kudos to you letting it go…I know how hard that can be!

  12. It looks nice and full! Great trimming technique!

  13. You did a great job with your trim! You took off just the right amount. I bet it feels and behaves better.

    You'll grow the lost length back in no time and your ends will be in great shape when you do!

  14. Thanks, I'm really hoping that it gets pretty close over the next year.
