Yikes! Jealous! You guys all have gorgeous hair - but how do you grow it? How often do you cut?

My hair recently had a big issue and I lost a lot of it and want to cut it, but now that I know the issue, I want to grow it long and healthy -

Any tips???

I never comb or brush other than that.

Oh yes, and I eat pretty good - lots of protein. I am 56 so I didn't think I could grow it as fast as I have. Patience it foremost. It takes time to grow your hair.

So would anyone have any idea why my ends are really thin?

My hair has been shedding a lot lately (mostly b/c something is causing me a LOT of tangles, and when I comb it out in the shower, I lose alot) - so while the volume of my hair is thinner, the ends were REALLY thin - not split, but they don't look good so I'm cutting them all off.

It seems when my hair gets past BSL, I get these super thin unhealthy looking frizzy ends. Help?
3b/fine/normal porosity/normal elasticity

LOVES behentrimonium methosulfate

Want to grow it long again!
And simply want to figure out this hair of mine!

Lisa, I have another thread in the general forum called OMG the tangles - you can read about it there - I don't want to hijack this thread. But I think it's MAJOR protein overdose, but also protein sensitivity (which I never realized).

I'm trying to track down other ingredients that may have been causing this. Would love your input - though if you wouldn't mind check out my other thread Omg the tangles!

Thanks!

Lol! Curlybran, maybe you should start another thread dedicated just to this... btw, your curls look beautiful.

fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

I'll play. This is before I got the big chop (7.5 inches). Actually, nearly a year before. I was having an incredibly good hair day.



You guys and your amazing curls are making me miss the long locks.

(and as comparison, this is after the haircut)

Long curls still need a good trim every once in a while. About a year works for me. I'm lucky enough to live in So. Florida and get my hair cut by Tiffany (aka Struttswife) at Live Curly Live Free. It's difficult to cut when you're trying to grow out, but a good trim will do wonders. Lovin all these pics of beautiful curls.
thanks kelly that was a random crazy day! Hahaha oh gosh i can just imagine all those hilariois pics!
