Ladies, I’m on a roll this year. 2012 was the year I bid farewell to hair salons within the country & incorporated a D-I-Y (do it yourself) attitude to my hair. My hair journey was borne out of frustration at the way & manner my hair was treated at salons by individuals who claimed to be more knowledgeable but were not. Furthermore, I was in Texas on vacation last year & saw black ladies with beautiful long healthy hair and so I decided to take my fate into my own hands.
Since then I’ve incorporated a healthy hair regime & my hair is a lot healthier than it ever was. My goal for 2013 is to reach BSL (bra strap length). I’m currently grazing APL (arm-pit length). While in the States, I was fortunate to treat my hair at a salon where I was given a tutorial on taking better care of my hair. Ladies, black hair requires moisture, moisture & more moisture to grow. Secondly, relaxing or re-touching your hair every month weakens the hair structure & inevitably, you end up losing your hair. Over the coming days, I’ll be taking you through my hair journey & educating you on retaining hair length. I’ll also be giving you reviews on the products I currently use for my hair.
This is what my hair looks like now.
