This is my second length check since I big chopped, the last one was done at eight months. This is now seventeen months after big chop, that is a year and five months. Before I go into the details, it is christmas once again. Yay! That means my birthday too♥. There’s so much to be thankful for, so much to look back on and more importantly so much to look forward to. I can’t believe the year is come to an end already.
So this year I paid more attention to the health of my hair than the length and I am pretty pleased with the results. My hair has a slow growth rate of about 4 to 5 inches per year, but closer to 4 inches. I’ve had two trims done since bc and that might have contributed to less length, but it helped me maintain stronger hair. At this rate I’d say 2019 looks promising.
Back to my topic. I actually thought my hair wasn’t growing. I am relieved to see that it is. Hair is currently at six inches and I am due for another trim this month. This is hair from front, side and back.
My hair started breaking around October and I’ve been trying to figure out what the problem was. I increased moisture spraying, but that didn’t work. My hair was literally becoming weaker. Thankfully I figured it out. I haven’t done a protein treatment in months. I stated in one of my previous posts a long time ago that I literally hate deep conditioning. I know my hair needs it and I know what it does, but I can’t bring myself to like it so during washdays I’m usually trying to get it over with as quick as possible. I never thought I would actually forget. I am fully repentant and one of my goals for 2019 would be to looove deep conditioning.
My regimen will be changing shortly due to my schedule, but I will still be using around the same products. I will update regimen as soon as I get the hang of it. You can check my regimen by clicking the menu button.
