The long and short of it
Its ‘funny’, when I used to chemically straighten my hair, I always fussed about my length. Now that I’m natural, I much less fussed. My circumstances have changed; I’m now a married woman with two kids under the age of three. I have very little time to sit in front a mirror musing about my hair. I eat as best I can and treat my hair as best I can with products I can afford, then, hope for the best. RESULT! One of the many things I’ve learnt since being natural (as with fashion) sometimes is that less is more! The less you manipulate the hair and the gentler you are the better the results. So, after 2 ½ years this is my hair growth.

I’m very pleased that the hair at my temples has started to grow again. My next focus will be to be gentle with and care for my hairline.
Health complications aside, I think maintaining natural hair can be as easy or as difficult as you make it. What do you think? How is your natural hair journey going?
