checking in...

I'll be 18 months post on the 27th! I can't believe I made it this far because I've been contemplating chopping since the summer, but I'm still holding on. I have been wearing wigs/half-wigs since mid October and trying to stay on top of my protein/moisture game. Yesterday I added some amla powder to my conditioner and my hair is soooo soft! I had to do something because this Cleveland weather is doing a number on my hair even though it's hidden most of the time.

I am still thinking about chopping before the new year but I'm on the fence. I can't wait to take my year end progress pics.

I think I need to be talked down off the ledge:cry2: If I was not running late this A.M. I'm sure I would've chopped my relaxed ends if I had the time. I am really trying to make it to May but I had a mini-meltdown and I'm not sure how much more I can take with the wigs.:whyme:
I thought I could go all winter hiding my hair but here I am in mid-December ready to toss the wigs in the trash! I
:wallbash: really was trying to gain more length before I chop (I'm a little past shoulder natural).

What do you ladies think? Any other good protective styles you think I could do without using wigs or buns?

I'm a bunner but I know some of the ladies have gotten Sengalese twists for a protective style.

Does anyone have a hair resolution for the new year?lol
Not worry about my growth rate ---- my sides and front of my hair grow more slowly and sometimes I feel my NG should be longer being that I'm 18 months into in my transition.
