I'm in for life and I hope I have a little girl someday so I can teach her! No perms at 4 for my baby!
I've quit my hair journey...when you've been relaxed all your life and come across this board and see all these beautiful natural heads and you start to transition I think you get the wrong expectations...the average length after a year of being natural has been APL 90% of the time but I personally have yet to see full sl. On top of the hair being a fro with no hangtime yet (how long will this take?) it gets even more frustrating..I'm convinced that lower numbers have it way easier as far as being natural 3s don't have to deal with tangles and knots and their hair holds moisture better so it thrives while 4s are a challenge. I was sure I would at least have hang time after a year but nope not even close with the shrinkage so I'm ready to end this and possibly go back to perming it simply because I'm at the point of feeling it's no longer worth the time or effort that I used to contribute solely to haircare.
Now that I'm here, I plan to always take good care of my hair. I may not always be as obsessed with following my routine as I am now, but I won't go back to abusing it like I did before.
I will always take care of my hair so that I can have healthy hair no matter what length it is.
Its more of a hobby for me to take care of my hair. I luv learning about different products, styles and what and what not to do. Im always noticing peoples hair whether its men or women. I dont think there will ever be a time that I stop caring about what I do to my hair. I know once I reach my goal length I wont be "as" concerned but I will always have good practices.
