Starting a New Hair Journey (2016)

Hey there!

So, here’s the deal: I tried to start getting into the protective style game in December by wearing crochet braids

All was well, and they served their purpose, but alas the time came to take them down. Everything was fine until I chopped off the back of my hair cutting the hair out 🙃

I was devastated! That’s about 4.5 inches and 3 years of growth…gone! So here’s what I’m left with:

Overall, it isn’t too bad I guess since the rest of my hair came out okay, but I realized something else when I took it out: it’s not exactly growing anymore/it’s not any thicker

So I’m making a vow to grow heal their hair by protective styling for the next few months to a year, and paying better attention to the overall health of my hair. I think I’m good with everything except that my hair doesn’t have enough protein, and I need to do better with trimming my ends. I plan to protective style primarily through wearing wigs, but possibly also sew ins, and probably braids as well.

What have my naturals out there been doing to keep your hair healthy?
