If we want to defy the norm of 12 inches being the end of our hair length then we have to change our routine but honeys ‘this does not happen overnight’. If you only shampoo and condition your hair when you feel like it, dye your hair and use excessive heat this is the length you will be stuck with! Some of us even just totally neglect our hair and washing and conditioning is a myth and even the rain is a terrible culprit lol! But to achieve the longer tresses that you want you have to make a change in the way you see your hair.
Our hair day to day even with the most carefully planned routine will come in contact with damage whether that be the strain of day to day styling, nutritional issues, chemical processes even aggressive combing can cause a problem. Accumulating information is the first step to change. Research.
Texturizers, Relaxers and permanent hair colours are BIG factors into why we do not go past 12 inches. Once chemicals have been on your hair it is almost certain that your pre hair structure cannot be regained as the structure is then changed forever when you use chemicals. From then on that hair is now damaged. The full extent of the damage greatly depends on how often the process is performed in conjunction with the stylists understanding and experience of the chemical alteration.
There is also the environmental damage and nutritional/dietary requirements that we do not usually meet however this will be spoken about in a further post.
It all sounds very daunting but if a proper hair care regime is introduced these issues can be resolved and prevented. Even though there are some things we
cannot account for, we can actively stop some damaging factors which will make a big difference in the structure and overall look of your hair.
Take Care & start researching on your healthy hair journeys, be sure to keep your questions coming in too.
