“its just hair, it will grow back” are the words i repeated to myself over and over again after an unwanted haircut traumatized me, shaking my entire life for approximately 24 hours. you never really know what you are missing until it’s gone and you better believe, while looking at a stylist “trim” my wet curly fro, i quickly realized, my luscious locs would not look the same post styling. the 3-4 inches that were clipped away felt more like 6-10! and now 1 year later, i still don’t feel like i have reached by starting point. so lately, i have been in search for more knowledge to help me retain growth and found a couple new hair crushes along the way.
here are hair care practices i will be trying to implement over the next couple of months… and of course, i’ll check back in with you guys with results:
I. low manipulation/protective styling to help prevent breakage
II. finger detangling and combing
III. deep conditioning at every wash ( i already do this one)
IV. minimizing heat
V. washing hair in section
and in the meantime, i will be lusting over all of these gorgeous natural hair queens and be inspired!
