FINALLY I REACHED MY FIRST GOAL!!!
Up top is a pic of my hair 10months ago on 9/2009. After being on my hair journey for a yr, I was still fed up with my thin see through ends and extreme uneven hair, so I trim/cut it back up to armpit length and decided to really take my hair journey seriously.
That was the best decision I've ever made for my hair.
Now I've reached my first goal of healthy BSL (Bra-strap length) Hair. As you can see, I've gone a little passed that which is great! . I was 4wkS post relaxer. My hair is a little uneven, so I'll even it up soon. :) My next goal is Mid-Back Length!!! yaay.
What Helped Me Reach My Goal:
Deep conditioning once a week with ORS replenishing conditioner
Washing with HairOne
Using a clarifying poo 1x per month
Detangling with Jilbere Shower comb
Using Mane and Tail Detangler and moisturizing & sealing nightly
Wearing Half Wigs as a protective style
Airdrying and staying away from heat
Black Tea/Coffee Rinses (love♥)
Wearing satin scarves and sleeping on satin pillow case
Stretching relaxers 14+ weeks apart and texlaxing
TRIMMING Split Ends-mandatory for length
Great things I occasionally do:
Use Jamaican Black Castor Oil
Take GNC Ultra Nourish Hair Vitamins
Things I stopped:
Roller setting at home- i got breakage no matter what, so I only let my stylist do it after she relaxes my hair.
Hard Protein treatments- I just use protein conditioners every now and then
Braiding Hair- My fine hair breaks when Its braided for extended periods
Stressing- It will grow, so don't obsess over your hair. Be patient and remember less is more.
GOD Bless and I wish you and your Hair the Best!
