The time went by so fast! When I first cut my hair in 2009, I was jonesing for length. I was told to be patient and to ‘enjoy the journey’, but all I could think about was how my hair wasn’t growing. I wanted it to grow, and grow fast. But now I’m like, where did all this hair come from?! Once you stop focusing on length and focus on health, everything falls into place.

My advice to others? There are few hard and fast rules and you have to figure out what works best for your hair. I think I’ve finally hit on it, and I’m thrilled and can’t wait to see what next year brings. I’m still learning… everyday.

I attribute my length retention to my strict no heat policy, co-washing (instead of shampooing), protecting it at night, and using natural oils like Coconut and Meadowfoam.
