Hair treatment!7:27 PM
I have been in a mind frame where I want to "do it all myself". No need to have people care for me because I honestly believe that no one can take care of you better than yourself. My mother has been the one to care for my hair ever since I was a child, and in her care my hair has never fallen out, EVER! As I got into doing live shows I would play a bit with my image and my hair played major role in this change. I would dye my hair, flat iron it, rock long weaves, sometimes even wigs! Of course all of this took a toll on the condition of my hair. It became very thin, hardly any volume left, and super dry and at one point fell out :(
I recently decided that I would manage my hair and take care of it so that I can achieve my desired length. It will not be a hard task because all one has to do is care for it daily. I have always had a major problem with dry scalp. So very much so that even after a washing set I would still have dandruff hanging on to dear life on my scalp and hair. I was usually disgusted because the first thing that comes to mind when you see someone with a head load of dandruff is that we assume that they have a while without washing their hair. I can tell you from my experience that this is not necessarily true- although in some cases it may be.
Make sure to protect your ends! A major reason why a lot of us have problems with hair growth is because we don't protect our ends. And so, it breaks and damages the condition of the hair preventing you to reach a longer length. Some people believe that just wrapping your hair is enough. Personally that does not work for me. What does work is keeping it in a bun. Braiding my hair into two and twisting it into a bun and then wrapping it for protection as I sleep. I also make sure that if I am not stepping out, then there is really no reason in having my hair out, for this will only have your hair unprotected and exposed to breakage. My journey has only begun........
I will keep you all posted on my progress :)
