My Hair Growth Journey

 

Periodically, I will add more content about my own personal hair journey!  My main focus has been the health of my hair with a goal of growing out my length.  Call it “brainwashing” but ever since I was a little kid I daydreamed of having long hair!  However, it wasn’t until I put my focus on the HEALTH of my hair and body, that I actually started to see growth.  This is my personal journey and hair goal, and it in no way should be for everyone!  Healthy hair, just like healthy bodies, comes in all different shades, sizes, textures, and lengths.  The journey is about discovering what YOUR healthy best is…both inside and out!

——————————————————————————————————————

My annual (or bi-annual) blow out and trim!  Over the last 1.5 years I have gone to a professional stylist to blow out, trim, and natural strand twist my hair.  I will trim my own ends as needed and get them professionally trimmed about every 3 months in-between.  I still have not had my hair flat ironed to see the actual length…but someday!  In the meantime, the minimization of heat is what I attribute to the majority of my growth.  The other basic factors include:  moisture (water), nourishment/conditioning/sealing moisture (all natural oils and butters), deep conditioning, and protective styles.
