Almost 10 months natural woohoo!!!

So this month will mark 10 months since I decided to go natural. In that time frame I have probably tried a million products and styling techniques out. I think I finally found my winning combinations. My hair suffered from severe heat and dye damage when I first started last October that it would barely even curl. Every few months I would gradually cut some of the straight ends off and then in June, I got a devachan dry curly cut and finally freed myself of almost all of my straight ends whew that felt good. All in all, in these 10 months I probably got 5-6 inches cut off. Thanks to weekly deep conditioners, protein treatments and only using the flat iron twice since October, my hair is SO much healthier and curlier now. Now I'm on my growth kick. My goal is to grow it down to bra strap length while curly. I may flat iron it when I reach my 1 year natural-versary lol just to see the difference. Here are some pictures of my journey thus far, beginning with October 2009 and ending with July 2010:

This is when I got my devachan cut in June 2010
