Well, since I've been jogging, I've been curious, but not overly concerned, if my hair was holding up. Because of the nature of my hair, any type of moisture means it will shrink to no end, so it's hard to check the length unless I have it blow dried or straightened (which I haven't done in over 2 years).
Let me give you a visual:
This is my hair when I wash it. It shrinks to this length, regardless of how long it is.
This photo is to show you that my hair is actually very, very curly.
This is how it looks when I allow it to air dry after sealing the moisture in with an oil. This is still wet hair.
But Tuesday I went to a salon and had my hair washed and blow dried. I was amazed to find out that my hair had still been growing, even in spite of all that sweating and shrinkage. The pictures can't do it justice. I wish you could see the volume of my hair. AND, it's almost shoulder length now, so if I did have it straightened, it would definitely be shoulder length.
A big difference from when I chopped it off 3 years ago (on my 33rd birthday).
Now, who knows what it will look like after tomorrow's race, so I thought I'd show you now. :-)
Until next time,
