The Braid Out: A Mini Photoshoot.
It's insane how short my hair looks after I wash it. Water seems to make it coil up...some conditioners seem to make it coil up even tighter, but...One braid out or twist out, and it looks like I grew a couple of inches overnight.
All of a sudden my hair hangs down just a little bit more than it stands up.

I trimmed off about an inch.
Since I'm growing my hair back to where it was before, I was kinda hesitant about trimming at all; but, I am so glad I let that measly inch go. After all, it had been over 7 months. It was time, and now the ends of my hair feel much smoother.
Letting them air dry overnight, I unbraided them the next morning and left my hair uncovered in the shower. The steam seemed to moisturize & plump up my strands.
Added a couple bobby pins in the front to create a little bang, because the front of my hair will not hang down on it's own, at this stage.
