I have always desired long hair. I didn’t even care if it was healthy or even mine, as long as it was long, I was happy. So you can only imagine when I finally cut off my relaxed hair, how difficult it was to accept and love my hair for what it was. It took several years to grow it out…several slow years…and finally I grew it out. Here’s how:
Patience: I wish this was sold in stores, but sadly it’s not. In a world where we seem to value instant gratification, waiting is something we rarely tolerate. But when it comes to growing hair, accepting the fact that its going to take time, is key.
Love: Love your hair. Accept it for what it is in all of its glory. Whether its completely unruly and wild and you get the side eye for it, or you can comb through it..easily…with a regular comb; love it! Show it endless love and it will love you back.
Care: Drink more water….good. Now drink some more. Find a great moisturizer that loves your hair and that your wallet loves too. Get a tri—well…still working on this part, but yes, get a trim even a “dust” so that you can get rid of split ends. Experiment with protective styles that won’t put strain on your hair; but beware: some protective styles if left in too long will breed something horrible in your hair.
These are just a few tips for hair growth! The picture in this post is not the length of my hair now, but shows my hair growth from when I first started my journey in 2009! And also shows how the shrinkage is real!
The pictures below are from 2014. I decided to experiment with a few Carol’s Daughter products…Hair Milk to be specific and I couldn’t believe how long it was!!!
Enjoi your hair journey!!!
