Hi guys, I thought today I would write about my hair and how I take care of it, what I ask for when I get it cut, how I grew it long and the products I use on it!
HOW I GREW IT
In 10th grade I cut my hair shoulder length, naturally I hated it because I felt naked having had long hair my entire life so I let it grow out from there on.
To grow it, I took 5,000 mg of Biotin daily and that accelerated the growth by a lot. I also did not use heat on it ever; there were only a few times I straightened it or curled it. Lastly, I rarely got hair cuts and I still rarely get them. The last time I got my hair cut was August 2015… lol.
I wash my hair with the Aveda Shampure shampoo and conditioner line. It is pricey, but whenever I use a drugstore shampoo and conditioner, my hair grips on to the chemicals in it and builds up a thick residue in my hair which in turn makes my hair look greasy and doesn’t allow it to breathe thus preventing it from growing. Shampure keeps my hair healthy and residue free.
After I get out of the shower I spray It’s A 10 on the ends of my hair and brush it out with a Wet Brush. 10/10 would recommend getting that brush, they’re sold at Target, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Amazon, etc. It’s the only thing I go through my hair with, it doesn’t damage it and brushes through snarls so easily.
I have never dyed my hair – I am a natural blonde! My eyebrows are brown because my hair was black when I was born and turned blonde over time.
As far as cut goes when I do get my haircut, I just ask to get my ends trimmed a little and for them to not give me a straight across, blunt cut. I like my ends to look more natural, as if they had been growing out for a little while. I also get the pieces of hair surrounding my face trimmed to jaw length so that they frame my face more.
I am trying to grow my hair out so that I can donate it and I do not want to cut off the required amount and be left with short hair which is why I am growing my hair really long. After it grows a bit more I’ll cut it, donate it and be left with long hair still. Thanks for reading, I hope this was helpful!
