Today is the one year anniversary of my blog. On this day last year I started this journey not knowing what I was doing, what to expect, or where I would end up.

As I sat here, reading some of my first posts, I realized that I have come a long way. There have been many days of ups, downs, frustrations, and tears. However, when I reflect on it all, I’m proud of my progress. My hair has grown, it’s gotten healthier (still a work in progress), and I’ve finally gotten some styles under my belt.

I titled this blog “My Natural Hair Journey” and I will say that it is very fitting. It has been a journey. As I prepare to go into my 2nd year, I’m trying to figure out the direction I want to go with my blog. Since I’ve pretty much figured out my hair, I’m well beyond  “learning” what I should do to keep it happy. By no means am I an expert, but I’m no longer a novice either. Whatever direction I go, I hope that I will be able to help make a new naturalista on her journey.

Here’s to year number 2!

Here are some photos from my 1st year’s journey – the good, the bad, and the ugly!
