Lies! You do care! After you flipped the table on the stylist and cried ugly Kardashian like tears in the parking lot you probably started googling “How to make my hair grow faster, how to hide short hair, cute hats, big hats, costs of extensions, and weave 101.”
You probably heard “Length over Health” “It’s just hair” and “It’ll grow back”
Those things don’t address that your hair is still short and you don’t like it.
Here are some tips on retaining length and hair mistakes from JustGrowAlready.com you can read more of them in the Beginners Hair Guide on her blog.
- Keeping my ends moisturized. Our ends are the oldest part of our hair and thus require the most moisture.
- Protective styles. This reinforces the bullet point above but protective styling also help me cut down on manipulation and helped me to just leave my hair alone.
- Decreased use of direct heat. Using direct heat (blow drying, hot combs, flat irons) on your hair isn’t a bad thing, but should be done in moderation. Frequent use of heat can dry out and damages hair.
- Weekly deep conditioning to restore moisture and elasticity to my hair.
You can always buy some Biotin from your local vitamin store, use hair oils such as castor oil, drink plenty of water and eat clean.
So now you have the enormous task of pretending that you like your hair cut. Stop seeing it as a mistake and just use it as an excuse to go shopping!
You’re sophisticated, you’re edgy, you’re fierce. Snap in a circle, twirl, yell out “YAASS!” for no reason.
