I've already stated that I want long hair, the problem isn't growing it, but keep the lentgh. Lately I've been noticing shorter pieces of hair around my hairline and I hate it. I think it might be from wearing my puff too tight. Either way, I don't like it and plan on stopping it asap. I've decided to change my regimen into something that will help me retain more lentgh and keep my hair healthy, and moisturized. I'm not 100% sure what products I plan on doing, but I want them to be natural. I think part of the reason my hair is breaking off is the alcohols and other stripping agents that a few of my products have.My main focus will be conditioners, and perhaps I'll add a few creams/butters/oils even though I'm really happy with my avocado butter/olive oil combination. A protective style for the winter might even be in order. I just want to keep my hair on my head and healthy, so we'll see how it goes.
