Thread: Hair growth journey so far - inspired by my mum!

    Default Hair growth journey so far - inspired by my mum!

    Hi! So as of January 2019 I have decided to try and start growing my hair long once again. At that point it was at my shoulders having had it cut fairly short for the last few years due to a lot going on mentally and emotionally. Growing up my mum always had her hair pretty much down to her hips (and then cut short urchin style - rinse repeat) so I'm really inspire by her.

    So far today I would say my hair is about APL or BSL (please help me decide)! I don't have an exact length that I am hoping for but maybe to my waist? What texture would you say my hair is also?



    My routine is pretty simple:
    Shampoo: Any shampoo bar (haven't found one to stick with yet)
    Conditioner: Diluted white distilled vinegar
    Air dry naturally after towel pat dry. The only times its blown dry is at the hairdressers twice a year.
    If sleeping with twists in to get overnight curls I use Garnier Hair Food Aloe Mask to prevent breakage.

    Hi Koala, welcome!

    It might be good to start by visiting the hair typing thread and posting a typing photo!
    (I think the instructions are on the first page but essentially, wash your hair as you normally do, blot it, and then do your best to not touch it til it's dry)

    Welcome! That's great that your inspiration comes from your mom. You've come to the right place to learn about long hair.
