Growing Out a Pixie: 6 Month Update

Growing Out a Pixie: 6 Month Update

A quick and dirty update… I’m about six months into my hair grow-out journey from a pixie. In that time I’ve had two professional haircuts and four DIY bang trims (and I have an appointment next week!). I don’t mind the grow-out process – I actually love all the “in between” looks because it’s like a different haircut each month. Suits my hair ADD very well. 🙂

I’m at the point now where my hair is curling more, so even though it is growing, it has looked the same length for a while. I’m also at that point where I’m wondering if I really want long hair again. My favorite looks above are May/June and September.

What do you think? Should I stay short and curly or keep going?



The Ouidad Unfurl Your Curl Contest

Ouidad Unfurl Your Curl Contest

Welcome to Curl on a Mission!

I started this blog as a way to document and share my experiences with bringing out the best in my naturally curly hair. I’ll offer suggestions and advice on what works for me personally, and I hope to hear the same from you! After all, we curly girls are in this together, whether we have twirls, spirals, corkscrews or coils. I find that what works for one hair type will often work for another with small adjustments or modifications.

That’s why I started following Ouidad on Instagram. They love all curly hair types! I entered their “Unfurl Your Curl” contest last week and was selected as a finalist (so excited)!  The winner and one voter will receive a Ouidad Ultimate Gift Set, and I’m just hoping I get it. I’ve heard great things about some of their products, and I’ve been dying to try them. If I win I’ll definitely do a product review. You can vote on Ouidad’s Facebook page until tomorrow at 12 p.m. EDT. Wish me luck!
