    Red face I achieved my goal in just seven years on LHC

    Then: When I joined LHC almost 7 years ago, I kind of hated my hair. It had awful tangling problems and significant grey gunk (buildup, though the only products I used were shampoo/conditioner/detangling spray). I washed three times a week. I would have to have a pair of scissors on hand while I brushed, to deal with the worst knots and mats, and only a paddle brush could handle my mane, even then frequently breaking and requiring replacement. The process took at leas 45 minutes every day just to detangle. Finger combing was a ridiculous prospect to me. Combs were my worst enemy. They didn't *work* in my hair, they pulled, snagged, caught, got stuck, and TORE. I refused to touch one unless I had already brushed and needed to smooth my canopy for a style. Also the only styles I could do were down, ponytail, half pulled through ponytail, hairband held floppy fall apart cinnabun, and braided pigtails. Most of which required redoing all the time. Claw clips would break and or get caught in my hair. No fun.

    Now: My hair is down to my anklebone (over 70"), still tangles easily, but I can detangle it within 20 minutes and style it in seconds (braids take MUCH longer, though). I use a combination of my fingers, a Tangle Teezer and a Hairsense Super Detangle Rake (widetooth comb) to manage my mess. I know many protective styles and own more than a hundred hair friendly accessories. They often hold for all day without adjustment, though sensitivities may require more frequent fiddling. I have not experienced buildup in years. I use ACV rinses ever wash, which is about weekly. I still feel like my hair is short compared to others with shorter hair, because... brain. Anyhow, I have reached my goal via skill and products learned from the many lovely folks at LHC. What to do now? Maintain here, probably. Maybe dye the last couple feet for some fun colors. I dunno. I proved I could do it, and I am happy.
