I am back on the hair growth/health wagon, though I have been gone for a minute I can truly say that I am back. Expect to see loads more posts from me on how to achieve long and healthy hair. From previous posts I can see that I have kept you all updated on all the hurdles my hair has been through; from me cutting it off a lot at one point during and after pregnancy, to post partum shedding I experienced recently and also damage to my edges. I can now say that post partum shedding is behind me and my edges are back to life. My hair has also started growing back out. I thought it was only fair that I share a picture of the current length of my hair. This is a picture of my hair after I got it relaxed on the 18th of May 2015 and you will see that the length is steadily coming back. The comparison picture is of my hair after I got my previous relaxer on 20th February 2015 and trimmed it. So this is 3 months of hair growth.
Although my ends look a bit worse for wear, I did not trim them as I intend to baby them and trim at my next relaxer. So I have set a few hair goals for myself which I will follow until my next relaxer and I shall definitely keep you all updated on the progress of my hair. I would focus on my ends and my scalp. These are the rules I shall follow:
Oil my scalp every day or every other day. I will be using my Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil- Extra Strength Formula on my scalp. I would also focus on using this oil on my edges and I intend to give myself a mini scalp massage each time.
Moisturise and seal my hair every day or every other day. When I am moisturising/sealing my hair I would be sure to focus on my ends and roots to promote hair growth and prevent breakage as much as possible.
I will try to minimise the use of heat in the form of blow dryers on my hair to once a month (except when I use the cool air option). I have been addicted to blow drying for some time now because I do not have to wait all day for my hair to dry however I will either air dry or just put my hair up in about 8 flexi rods or less and use my Softhood Hair Dryer Attachment (as a form of indirect heat). See my review on this product here if you have not already.
I will make sure to wash and deep condition my hair every week or every other week (however I will try my best to do weekly deep conditions). When deep conditioning I would be sure to focus on my roots and most especially on my ends.
Always make sure my hair is in a protective style. I will ensure my ends are always protected.
I will try as much as possible to do a pre shampoo/hot oil treatment before shampooing my hair. I will use any oil I have at hand.
You all can definitely participate in this hair challenge as well and let us see how well our hair thrives together.
Till next time my loves.
