Love having long hair and so grateful for it!

I used to straighten mine but it wouldn't stay straight.
Time has relaxed it, more than anything I tried.

Needing a trim. Lots of frizzy dead ends.

Every couple weeks I massage coconut and castor oil into my hair and scalp. Opposite weeks I do a clarifying treatment using apple cider vinegar mixed with water. Both of these I leave in for an hour under a cap, then rinse.

Tonya I can see you with some waves :)

When I started this journey I had a shaved head. That was in January 2019. My hair is getting reasonably long now and I can tie the back into a pony tail but none of the hair from the front half of my head reaches it, so it's not really viable. I've also got the issue of bald temples (I'm just starting to feel a little fluff on them now after my hair transplant in mid May, but its not really noticeable yet) so for the time being I'm stuck with a wig. The back of my wig is quite short so I now have to carefully clip the back of my natural hair up. It's a nuisance that I can do without. I'm also always nervous about the wig moving or falling off, so when the shops open here again (at least 6 weeks) I'll look for a topper that can blend with my natural hair and that has clips to help hold it in place. I hope that by early next year my transplant will have grown enough that I can get a hair style to allow me to look good without a wig.

It is the opposite in my household, Amber does do my hair. She doesn't cut it, because I want to grow it longer, but she washes it, and does it into any shape I desire, with curls or locks, whatever I feel I want. (or what she thinks looks pretty).

Long hair is just plain fun, a real kick, but at a cost. Getting rolled up in the car window or closed in the car door or caught under your elbow. Babies can get really big fist fulls and pull really hard! The first time I went on a long motorcycle ride without first braiding it (over fifty years ago) it took a week to work the tangles out. I grew up a hippie in California and have had it half way down my back most of my life but I never worried about styling it until the past five plus years. The saddest story is that I cut off a foot and a half of it just before Tia was born....... so sad!!!!! Still have the braid around the house some where.

Sarah, you should talk to a real good hairdresser or a dermatologist, because there is a reason it break off.

Around the house, or for some excursions out of the house, I have mine either in a pony tail or in a bun.
But washing it is still an adventure in tangle prevention.

Curious that it didn't break when dyed black and if the coloring was related to growth..?

To help against breakage, I am using a t shirt instead of a bath towel to dry. Avoiding heat drying and irons .
And I sleep wearing a satin bonnet or on satin pillow covers.
