A year ago, I shared a personal history about my relationship with my hair (including growing up being ashamed of it, and now really loving it). I also revealed that I had decided, back in late 2013, to grow my hair until I'm at least 50 (after my 50th birthday, I'll decide what, if anything, I'll do next).
Save for 2 trims over the past 2-1/2 years, I'm happy to report that I'm still growing it out. Since there was a lot of interest in that previous post, I thought I'd share my progress, above. (Because it's so curly, it's longer than it looks: the very back of my hair, when I stretch out the curls, reaches to right between my shoulder blades.) And for what it's worth, here are the products I use:
- As I Am Conditioning CoWash (for washing my hair)
- Kinky-Kurly Knot Today Leave-In Conditioner
- Kinky-Kurly Curling Custard Gel
More next year!
