- Sweet Tresses -- Back at it! -- Grow Baby Grow '09
- Goal #1 - Shoulder length
reached Aug 12, 2008
**** I'm Back!! Let's Grow!! ***
Goal #2 - Armpit length (June 2009)
I am excited to begin my hair growth process! I have 4a/b relaxed hair. Trying to transition to telaxed or natural hair.... not sure yet.
I actually had shoulder/above bra-strap length hair 2 yrs ago. I was bored with it and decided to chop it off to neck length. Since then I have been having a hard time growing my hair back due to excessive breakage. I was using heat almost everyday and my ends were suffering and breaking off.
After much research and late nights reading the LONGHAIRCAREFORUM, I became inspired to accomplish the length that I have always wanted which is BSL to MBL length hair. I know I can do it because my hair was close to that length as an adolescent.
It is now my time to achieve my longtime goal that I thought was unattainable! I would appreciate all tips and suggestions that you all have! thanks in advance! Here I go!
My first step is reducing or eliminating all together heat usage. I am no longer blowdrying, flat ironing, or using curling irons until I begin to see an improvement in the health of my hair.
*** Pin-Curling my hair at night with duckbill clips keeps my curls looking refreshed and full. I will post pics to show how I do this. This keeps me from using curling irons! I must say that my curls look better than it would if I just used a curling iron!! Minimum Heat to No Heat is Key in keeping those delicate ends in tact!***
************ UPDATE FEBRUARY 2009 *************
