This is what my hair
normally looks like used to look like;
Several months of improper care among others led to breakage. While racking my brain trying to think of what went wrong I found all the major culprits; I had an unnecessary trim after a relaxer touch up in July 2012 which led to a loss of length, lack of regular moisturizing resulting in dry brittle hair prone to breakage and the biggest culprit of them all too much direct heat especially once my new growth started emerging I would blow dry on the highest heat setting possible sometimes twice a week. If memory serves me well the most damage to my hair occurred between July and September 2012 when I wore my hair down a lot with hardly any protective styling within that period. This is what my hair looked like in November 2012;
Which led to a wake up call and the onset of my consistent healthy hair journey, so I trimmed the frayed/split ends which took it to this length;
|24th December 2012|
And started taking better care of my hair; the process involves consistently following a regimen, change in products used, regular deep conditioning, moisturizing more frequently, plus more protective and low manipulation styles.
Got a one inch trim in January 2014 so still at shoulder length.
