    Default Hello!

    I've been a member for quite some time now, always reading other's posts but never posting anything myself. I've been trying to grow out my hair for a year now and I started from shoulder length. A month ago, the hairdresser I usually go to, cut my hair shorter than I wanted, not to mention she also used the flat iron on a very high setting (I could smell my hair burning) and I personally never use heat in my hair. So that was a major setback in my hair journey. It feels like I'll never get past shoulder length. My hair was also bleached a year ago (I've got highlights) , so the ends are always dry. I have to use argan oil every day and I've recently started wearing my hair up in a bun in hopes that it will somehow protect it.

    I hope to meet new people here and share experiences about our hair journeys. Hopefully, I'll make some friends along the way. Have a great day everybody, and stay healthy!

    Hi, welcome.

    If you are the length in your avatar, you can probably (next time it needs a cut), do it yourself. Feye's self-trimming instructions are very popular here.

    I actually printed the instructions off, in case it should ever go off-line. And well, I kind of also know them by heart by now.
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)

    Welcome! Wearing your hair up is definitely useful. Many people experience growth stalls due to the mechanical damage that accumulates from wearing their hair down every day.

    I also started with bleached-in highlights and heat damage; it's nothing you can't overcome Monitor your hair's condition and trim as necessary. S&D (cutting off split ends as you find them) is also a good idea as you grow.

    What is your goal length?

    Hi! Nice to meet you😀
    My dream length is definitely waist length, but I've never had my hair that long, so I don't know if that's even possible for me. For now, I just want to get past shoulder length, maybe get to the armpit length by spring. Baby steps.😅
