How did I do it? I kept my hair moisturized and tucked away.
On terribly cold days, I turned to Qhemet’s Amla & Olive Heavy Cream or Burdock Root Butter Cream to lock in moisture. Mixed Silk Nourishing Deep Conditioner, a knock-off of Mixed Chicks, also helped when I ran out of Qhemet’s and needed to find something on the ground.
My hair had been the same length for years, because I didn’t realize my stylist was cutting away most of my new growth. My hair would tangle, and I would get a haircut every six to eight weeks. When I started taking care of my ends, those haircuts were no longer necessary.
I’m going to continue on this road for the near future. I may get a trim to even up my hair or I may let it be. One thing is for sure: I won’t let anyone talk me into getting a haircut when I don’t need one.
