Amel Larrieux. One of my Hair Idols.
I love long hair. Sue me. Or don’t sue me, just give your locks to add onto mine. While some naturals are product junkies or curl junkies (we’re an addicted bunch, non?) I live for flowing tresses that stretch past the shoulder. Now while I love length and my hair is for all intents & purposes “long” , I’ve never been able to grow my hair beyond shoulder length.
After a summer of weaves, I recently took down an install to find that my hair was shorter than I remembered (or maybe the weave gave me a faux-sense of length). Any who, my now neck-length hair is a bit bewildering. I know it’s just hair, but I’m not used to anything above my shoulder and it really is my hope to grow my hair healthy, long and strong.
I’m at a crossroads about my hair. Constant heat has caused severe damage and I’m looking for natural ways to repair my hair, restore it and grow it to the floor. Any tips would be great!
Stylish Thinkers, how do you care for your hair? What has helped you grow & retain length?
