OK this post is really for my girl Shelli from Hairscapades but perhaps you’ll be interested too LOL.
Shelli asked that I share comparison shots from a year ago when I last straightened my hair. I couldn’t find anyway but low and behold, I was able to capture a couple of images from two YouTube videos I did a little over a year ago.
The shots are only from a front view but I think you can see the difference in the length. My hair was above my shoulders then. Now, it’s reaching the bottom of my bra strap in the back. No, my h air isn’t completely even but that’s because of the many layers I possess. I don’t plan to ever have it completely even because it just won’t stay that way. So, in stead I just opt for getting as much damage trimmed off as possible.
This is the best I could dig up. Hope you can see the difference. My hair is a work in progress. Over the next few months I will trim to test out Chicoro’s Lead Hair Theory which is basically allowing your hair to grow regardless of the condition of your ends until the bulk of your hair reaches your goal length. This is the lead hair.
The longest part of your hair should be no longer than two to four inches of the bulk of your hair (that’s what I’ve got going on currently).
As the hair grows in and meets the area where your longest hair once was, you trim the longest section to meet and continue until all the hair is even….eventually.
I will get my next trim in about 3-4 months. In the meantime I’ll be protective styling my butt off LOL
Have you ever heard of Chicoro’s Lead Hair Theory?
