5 Natural Hair Journeys on YouTube to Inspire You in 2015

Avatar • Dec 27, 2014

Perhaps you had a few hair-related setbacks in 2014, be it heat damage, severe breakage, or something else.  Remember that a LOT can change in one year, including your hair, and for the better.  Start fresh, make necessary adjustments to your routine, and you should see progress by the end of 2015.  For extra motivation, check out these YouTubers and their dramatic one-year natural hair journeys.

1. KristySarah

KristySarah made the decision to reduce usage of heat, chemicals, and weave at the start of this journey.  Because of this bold move, her curls transformed from limp and damaged to voluminous and healthy in one year.

2. Posh Syd

Posh’s journey began when she asked her beautician to cut off most of her relaxed ends.  From that day forward, she practiced frequent protective styling.  Posh eventually trimmed away the remainder of her straight ends for the transformation you see here.

3. Rissikat Bade

Rissikat big chopped down to a few inches to begin her one-year natural hair journey.  What was her secret to this transformation you see?  It was a combination of patience and tender loving care.

4. Reneé Kennet

Reneé abandoned the flat iron and hot comb in order to rid her hair of thinning, heat damaged strands.  Her journey back to thicker, healthier hair began from that moment forward.  The second photo you see above is after a year.

5. LovelyLove

LovelyLove’s one-year journey involved eliminating relaxed, dry, damaged hair and returning to her thick, natural tresses.  She got through that year with a rigid protective styling regimen and regular moisturizing.

What did your hair care  journey in 2014 look like?  What are your plans for 2015?

That or if their hair grows the average rate of 6″ and they are able to retain their length. :/

Ladies — coming from a licensed beautician — if you are growing 6 inches of hair in a year, you are doing wonderful! Normal, healthy, average hair growth is 1/2 inch per month. Keeping a healthy regimen will get you another 6 inches in another year. Most transitioners who long term transition for length go an average of 20–24 months, thus will end up with about 10 ‑12 inches of hair. But keep in mind, there is shrinkage at the end of that rainbow.… 😉

Try not to feel discouraged,you may not have found your Rapunzel formula yet. It does take a while to find out what your hair likes and doesn’t like, its not instant.

During my first year natural, I was doing really well until — split ends caused me to trim more than I hoped 3 months before my 1 yr anni.. Target for my type 4 in 2015, Protective Style long term and go from my current neck length to shoulder length or so 🙂
