I had a bob at chin level and I hated it. I couldn't wait for it to grow back. I got made fun of big time in school, as everyone said I looked like a little boy. I deep conditioned 2x a week, shampooed 1x a week, and co-washed everyday leaving conditioner in my hair. I never trimmed and I took hair vitamins with a very good diet(veggies, protein, omega f.a., lots of water), and I stimulated my scalp at night everyday. I stayed away from dyes too, just kept my hair color natural.
