I kept the hair curly and continued with the apple cider vinegar rinses, conditioner & deep treatment hair masques - also protective hairstyles trying to make my hair remember it's hair pattern. Have to remember the cut was that of a layered style so the back generally was going to grow a lot faster and I also had a side swoop fringe cut, my hair was more of a 2C /3A type.
Nanogen Hair Growth Factor Treatment Serum* , treatment is around 4 weeks, applied every day. I applied it each night while I was getting my hair prepped for bed as I thought it's the best time for me to let the serum work. I noticed my hair was getting thicker and even when my hair was worn up, I hadn't seen my mum for a few weeks and she said to me 'Laa, your hair has grown!!' When it comes to me I never notice hair growth, I see myself everyday and just don't see it so when someone else who hasn't seen me for a while notices - something is going right. I got my nan a bottle as she wanted to try it, be amazing if she had the same thicker hair results as I did.
Yet I had those strands of heat damage and those pieces of hair was a lot longer than the rest of my hair as it was stretched out. I took the plunge and trimmed my hair, nearly 4 inches in various spots but I'd rather my hair be healthy and not breaking and out of shape.
Lesson here : limited - no heat, is the truth. It's the patience that has to be gained. Think I asked my nan nearly every week since I had it cut, "has it grown back yet?!" lol. I've found a good routine happening for my hair now and I believe my hair is happier for it.
Ebody Spa hair turban*, sometimes I just take the Sports & Travel towel* and when air drying I put on my back and let the hair rest on that so the cloth soaks up a lot of the excess water. oh my goodness - just no joke, my hair dries naturally so quicker and with less frizz If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
