May 2008 was my last rendezvous with direct heat along with a formal trim. And, to advertise all-natural hair development, I vowed that I wouldn’t utilize heat for five years. I desired to find how extended my tight curly hair may grow under optimum conditions. I don’t learn what the best size is, but I thought if I moisturized my ends, stopped utilizing blow-dryers and flat irons, and wrapped my hair at evening that would eliminate breakage. Then, I might finally discover my terminal size. So far, on this journey, I’ve learned a limited classes.

Lesson #1-Impatience makes you lose focus.

I desire extended hair today and it may be rather irritating to be in forums where persons show their all-natural hair development photos and have mid back size or waist size hair. Now naturally, I not focus found on the amount of time and effort it took those to receive there but just the truth that their hair isn’t my hair. However, when I receive the crazies it’s usually superior to have a forum and community of individuals with synonymous all-natural hair development objectives to reach out to.

Lesson #2-Do reach out!

Email somebody who has synonymous objectives or has grown their hair out. When I virtually lost it this summer and was going to go flat iron furious, I reached out to Teri at tightlycurly.com. Because she had absolutely endured years of brief hair, then medium hair, then virtually lengthy hair, to merely about lengthy hair and finally hip-length hair, she gave me remarkable information, recommending that I switch focus on preventing damage. I was capable to do that and see that my hair actually had changed in a year’s time which causes the last lesson of noting and celebrating progress.

Lesson #3–Celebrate and record natural hair development.

Progress, encouraged me to go on.

There were months before I began this journey where I saw no progress, because I was breaking off my hair at the same rate it was growing. But, if you take images and seeing actual development, I was inspired to continue that is key. Motivation might avoid you from going crazy and trimming (or cutting) your hair in a fit of hair rage. So, while it could not be cool size yet, my hair is a lot longer than it was in May 08.
