3a, low porosity, protein sensitive, medium texture (with random coarse strands), growing out a pixie cut

Located in Tasmania, Australia



Haven't seen much growth so far so I'm giving my hair a break. Doing a personal two month wig challenge. Keeping my hair cornrowed underneath moisturizing every other day. Hope I see an improvement by early summer.

my routines pretty simple, i wash when i need, (twice a week) DT and herbal rinse once a week. after my shower at night, i finger detangel, use same condish as a leave in and seal my ends with oil. then i message leave it to air dry as much as it can then put it up and sleep on it. in the morning i just refresh with a bit of water and condish and thats it.
i dont use product unless im going out then i use a little bit of gel the i scrunch in. then i SOTC and either leave it down or put it up.

So I've changed my routine a bit and noticed more growth. I've started taking skin, hair and nail vitamins with primrose oil and biotin in them, along with a multivitamin and omega 3. I plait my hair every day in a single plait for a protective style. I've been using a protein treatment every 3 weeks roughly aswell, which has really limited shedding and improved the condition of my hair. Currently about 3.5 inches off bra strap length, about 1.5 stretched.
I'm in!!! My hair is about shoulder length right now curly. I want to have it at least to armpit length by next year. Suppose I shall drink more water and I've also considered taking vitamins. Maybe. I'm also going to start deep conditioning once a week and trying to do protein treatments at least once a month. Here's a recent pic of me
