Hey Y’all!! Hope you all are doing great!
I decided that I will officially end my “hair growth” journey at the end of the year.
So whatever length I am left with, I will maintain for years to come(well that’s if I do not suffer a setback God forbid). Meaning, I will then begin to trim far more often. I currently trim every 6 months or so(I don't use heat, harsh tools, chemicals and my hair is primarily in protective styles) and starting next year, I will most likely trim every 8 weeks.
Why you ask?
Well, my hair is only between SL and APL and it takes up to 2 hours to detangle! Granted, I primarily finger detangle every 1-2 weeks and use a comb every 1-2 months. But for the last couple of months, I have been dreading my detangling sessions. I try not to rush through it because the health of my hair is very important to me, but I jump for joy when I finally finish.
It may not look like it in pictures, but my hair is very thick. For instance, one section(when divided in 4’s), contains the same amount of thickness I had when relaxed. I’m not complaining about that, but that just means my detangling time multiplied.
Styling takes just as much time, but it always took me that long to style so I don’t mind.
I will actively try and grow my hair out this year, hoping to make full BSL by the end of the year, but that’s the longest I want my hair to be.
Question for you, whether relaxed or natural:
How long does it take for you to detangle?
