It been's a long time I shouldn't a left you, without a dope blog to vibe to. Lol, just testing out my rapping skills. I think I'll stick to planning events. Anyway I am sorry for leaving you hanging but I will address that in a different blog.
So lets get into why you are here Part 4 of the hair blog length retention! I am personally on a quest to grow my hair to elbow length. One thing I will say that is key in length retention is getting your end clipped and baby(ing) those ends. I went on a two year no heat hair journey and when I got my ends clipped I only lost an inch no more than an inch and a half of hair because I made sure to always moisturize my ends. I am currently starting a three year no heat journey, I will let you know how that goes in future blogs.
Next, protective styling. I use to get sew-ins, braids, twists and things like that but I began to think how is that really helping my hair grow? The tension of pulling your hair for braids that might last a month or two depending on how well you take care of your hair. Sew-In's OHEMGEE braids are tight, then sewing the hair onto the braids, then don't add the net. forget sleeping for a few days sis, lol The folks of yesterday use to say pulling the hair makes the hair grow but in reality you can get traction alopecia, from folks who are not aware of how tight they are pulling your hair. Crochets are not the best form of protective styling either BUT it is somewhat of a better than those mentioned above. This spring/summer season I am rocking mini twists with my own hair. I am loving the ease of the style from beginning to end its a two hour style and can last for maybe two-three weeks if you know how to take care of your hair.
Now should you decide to join me in a no heat journey and you want to get a protective style such a braids and stuff. After washing and conditioning plat your hair. You can do two plats or do maybe six-eight individual plats. Let the hair dry over night and pick it out the next day or whenever you are getting your hair done. Using this method will be give you the blow out look without all the heat.
