Hair Update

I did gain some length from my sew in I do not have a before photo which upsets me but I know I was at Bra strap (When I say Bra Strap, I mean exactly on it. Others refer to it as just hitting bra strap). I also had gotten a mini trim before the install. I am now past bra strap so I gained about an inch of growth or so, which is awesome! But now I am scared of getting spilt ends! I am a victim of always getting bad split ends & I DO NOT use heat on a weekly or daily basis. I feel that my split ends happen because my hair is always rubbing on my clothes. I constantly do protective styles which are usually braids outs and even though it is a protective style my ends are still exposed. I would do buns again but I feel that buns have caused some damaged to my crown area. My crown area is my problem area and I feel it was because of buns.

I'm sort of stuck on what protective style to do next. I am thinking about doing another sew in but I am not 100% sure if I want to. I did have a better experience then last time. So I know my next sew in will be yet another success. I also want to purchase hair from Lola Hair Company. I would re use my Aliexpress hair but I really want to try hair from Lola Hair. If I do another sew in I am waiting till April to get it done. My hair needs a mini break from another install.

As for my ends I just need to find away to keep them protected but also try not put to much tension onto my crown area. I also need to even out my hair color as you can see there some brown in the middle but I am so scared to color my hair. Well that is another update when I do color because I do have to.


  1. Your hair looks great. Awesome retention.

    1. Thanks girl now I just need to maintain my ends

  2. Your ends look really full! Have you considered adding a just little protein conditioner to the ends of the braids for your sew in? It might be a good way to give them a little reinforcement whilst in your protective style.

    1. I had used a protein spritz once a week when they were in braids. I'm not sure how to maintain my ends now to keep the growth I gained.

Am I Protein Sensitive ?

I had recently purchased Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor and The Keratin & Green Tea leave in. I felt that my hair was in desperate need of some protein being that it was breaking a lot and because I thought my hair was going through moisture overload. Every time I washed it, my hair will feel way to mushy and soft. So today I decided to try the products and my results weren’t so good. This is what I did :
Shampoo with my Neutrogena Triple Moisture & then condition with the Aphogee conditioner. On the bottle it says to either leave it on for 2 or 5 minutes. I don’t know how long I left it in being that I was in the shower, but I do know that I didn’t leave in on for long because I didn’t know the time and I was to nervous having this product in my hair. I want to say it had to be at least 4 minutes that it was in my hair. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt AMAZING! My hair felt so strong and thick. I was just blown away at how good my hair felt. Usually my hair feels like mush an…

So I Made Waist Length

I made my long term goal! I'm finally waist length. I have been on a hair journey for a very long time and through so many trial and errors I found what helped me. My growth has definitely come from protective styling. I'm either doing a sew in and if not that my hair was always in a bun. Also having a simple hair routine is key! Not only that but keeping up with my ends. I plan to get my ends lightly trimmed but the only person I trust is so far from me but very soon I will get one. I might try to do a new hair goal of hip length but honestly not sure having long hair can kind of be annoying, but I'm not complaining I love my current length.
