I honestly can‘t believe that it has been a year since I have big chopped and I am happy to say that I am very happy with my progress!!! Even Though I have been fully natural for a year, I have 1 year 9 months’ worth of growth because I transitioned for 9 months.
My hair care regimen has not changed much from my transitioning and relaxed hair regimen. Here is how I cared for my hair for the past year
I moisturized my hair consistently and whenever I neglected my hair, I made sure to compensate accordingly
I deep conditioned my hair with every wash day and had at least one protein treatment every month
I know most warn against shampoo and advice to lean toward cowashing, but my hair loves it’s fair share of shampoo. I tried to co wash only for a while but my hair didn’t respond well to it so I went back to sulphate free every week and Clarify once a month
Protective styling has been a constant in my natural hair journey and I have seen a lot of growth from it.
I drink a LOT of water every day which also contributed to my hair care regimen
I have recorded a quick video of my length check and my hair in it’s shrunken state!! check it out below
