In January I told you all that I’ll embark on a hair growth challenge in a bid to challenge myself to grow longer and healthier hair. I’m back with an update to let you know how it went.
First I have a confession to make. I slacked a lot *covers face* but I’ll tell you my reason, I hope you forgive me. I was heavily pregnant and I just couldn’t stand wash days, the smell of conditioners made me nauseous so I reduced my wash days to twice a month and sometimes once a month, I was lucky I didn’t have to deal with dandruff later on. I however did have product build up due to the long gap between my wash days. To remove the product build up, I used black soap or shampoos containing sulfate for that squeaky clean feel, yeah I know it’s not good but well..
After I had my baby, I didn’t also bother about my hair for a while. I stuck to washing twice a month and putting my hair in cornrows and twists.
Did I retain any length?
Yes I did! My hair is about 12 inches long, I retained about 2½ inches, it was previously 9½ inches
Some tips that helped me retain length even with minimal care includes:
Water, oil and my hair and body butter are my best friends.
If you do this, I promise you, your hair will thank you.
I don’t touch my hair when I don’t feel like it or when I don’t have time. If I’m in a hurry, scarves to the rescue!
That all for now queens! How was your length retention? I hope your hair is treating you well.
