Often when I see a natural with long hair, I immediately look for her “before” picture and most of the time, find that she had long relaxed hair as well. Me personally, I’ve never had what I would consider long hair. As a natural child I had very thick hair (still do) but it was just past shoulder length. After I started getting relaxers, around age 7, it never grew longer. In high school I wore short stylish cuts, and did so until my big chop at age 30 (a year ago). Now I’m wondering if I will ever reach my goal of Armpit Length (APL).
Is your hair longer than it has ever been?
