The year was an interesting year for me and Grow It Girl. I would like to thank everyone that has supported me along my journey. This year the site has grown and expanded to more than just chats about my hair journey. I wasn’t sure how the beauty and nail additions would be received; however, it appears you all enjoy those posts. I was recently asked to do more beauty looks and that’s something that is definitely on the agenda. Anywho, just in case you new to Grow It Girl or you missed a few post, here are the top five hair and beauty posts of the year.
I was surprised to see how may people were curious about the return of the Jheri Curl. I did find out from the site linked in the post that there are quite a few people who are still wearing a traditional and revised version of the Jheri Curl. I’ve noticed that most people have moved over to the Wave Nouveau instead of the Carefree Curl for more of a natural looking curl.
The idea of the texlax grew in 2013 and more people transitioned from bone straight relaxed hair to being texlaxed. I’m not entirely surprised this post did well. Most people would like to have a comparison of natural hair that was texlaxed. It will give you a good idea of what to expect if you are interested in texlaxing and there are benefits to being texlax. My hair is definitely stronger than it was when I briefly had bone straight hair.
I personally was surprised about how many benefits there are to drinking warm lemon water. I will admit I have not been drinking this as much as I should or was previously. However, it is something that I will be getting back to soon.
When I think of what made me write this particular post I can’t help but chuckle. There was this big debate and overall foolishness over a video that was posted on YouTube. Also, I noticed there had been a little beef on one of the hair forums I belong to over people claiming various lengths. It wasn’t until that forum beef that I realized that one of the most popular hair charts being used was actually incorrect. This post showed that incorrect post and offered multiple charts to assist reader with determining their current length and their goal lengths.
These were separate posts, but they both did equally well. I have slacked on using henna and Ayurvedic powders. I did say I wanted to do a challenge in with all Ayurvedic powders, shampoo bars, and oil. We will see how that goes and if I decide to take the challenge. If you need recipes on how to mix henna or use powders these two post would be a great start.
