Okay guys so here’s the deal, I’ve been natural for the last 3 1/2 years, and i’m not even at apl yet. I don’t get it. I try to be patient. I try different techniques, I protective style, seal and use protein/deep treatments, yet nothing seems to give me faster growth. I watch videos and look at pictures of naturals who started way after I had, and they are already at bra strap! uhghhhh, so frustrating!
Anyways, I have learned that I just have to be patient and enjoy my length as it is. So it doesn’t grow as fast as other naturals I have seen; what can I do about it besides accept it? I want to say more, but then again i’m not going to burden my readership with this rant. I will say however that I may have hope when it comes to retaining/growing my hair. I haven’t trimmed my hair in who knows how long and I have so many split ends that this just might be the reason to my madness. I plan on making an appointment next month with the salon Devachan to get a trim, highlights, and shape. Hopefully, this will fix my heartache.
Now onto what you all came here for- length check. And yes, these pictures are from the same day of my previous post.
p.s.- I cut my hair mostly in the front because my hair is thinner in that region and doesn’t shrink up like the rest of my fro. I also cut a few inches in the middle and front of my head because when I first went natural I thought it was heat damage when in fact some parts of my hair are just less elastic than others. Also, last January I cut about three inches off my nape because it look awkward (long story, i’ll tell you guys more about it in the future). Pics time:
Well, there you have it. My length check. My next post will be “wash day” using Anita Grant’s Rhassoul clay cubes. Hope you have a wonderful day! Tata 🙂
