Chimamanda’s Hair Growth Diary 1
look at those curls, evidence of good healthy hair care.
This post is a remainder to be consistent with my daughter’s hair regimen, of which I have been. Some days are hard, because she doesn’t want her hair to be touched. The struggle is real. She cries sometimes, which is not encouraging at all. Simple co-washing, she burst out crying. Other days are better, mostly when she is feeling sleepy.
I’m proud of where we’re with her hair growth. It’s growing longer and longer. I tried to extend the days I put my hands on her hair, i.e I do a long lasting protective style.
I have used different hair products. I didn’t like the last leave-in-conditioner I used on her hair. It was so watery and doesn’t really soak into her hair. I can tell you that I will not be using the product anytime soon.
She is a year and eight months and her hair is a healthy 10 inches long. I’m trying to break the habit of using products I taught were great after reading the content and realize it was not that good on her hair.
We are breaking free from babies’ hair products and using normal hair products. I have started using the Olive oil brands on her hair.
I have watched lots of YouTube videos and read articles on pinterest on how to have a healthy long hair. From my understanding, the only way to grow a long healthy hair is hair retention. I have tremendously reduce manipulating her hair. I have tried to wear her, her hair bonnet, but she just takes it off.
Hair Growth diary 1 is a documentation on her journey, trials and error on how to maintain a healthy natural hair. I will continue to update this diary.
