I finally took time out to organise my new hair regimen according to what I think my hair needs.
Hey guys! So on the 5th of January I trimmed my hair for the first time. It was an emotional experience for me because although I planned on cutting off about half an inch I ended up cutting almost two inches, I had a lot of single strand knots I needed to get rid of. … Continue reading My first ever trim!
I had my second length check on the 21st of December which is approximately two months after the first length check.
You all know about my shrinkage challenge that I did last week or the week before that. It was fun and all and I rocked a TWA for like a day but when I was to detangle my hair it wasn't as rosy.
So as you all know I was doing this embracing my shrinkage thing because I have been writing my exams and I didn't have time to take care of my hair.
So I've been having exams for the past week and I haven't had much time for my hair, what I had planned to do originally was make cornrow plaits or twisting braids with my hair but somehow time passed and I didn't have the chance so right now my hair is a sight.
So I decided to do a length check for my hair because it's been a while and I want to know if I have retained any length in the past few months and so I can project how long my hair should be by December.
So, I may be the only one with the dream of having waist length hair but I know I'm not the only one that wants to have long healthy hair. So for the people who just want long hair, I got down the various hair length milestones so you can see where you are, where you want to be and be able to measure your progress.
Hair terms can be confusing at times when you just come into the whole natural hair thing, so I got a few terms that I use very often and their meanings down for you.
I first relaxed my hair when I was around six. I really shouldn't have then but I was caught up in everywhere person having straight hair and I felt a little left out. So without my mum's consent and with help from my aunt I relaxed it and for years I felt cool.
