So you’ve watched plenty of videos of naturals with long, healthy, waist length (or almost waist length) hair and you want it too huh? Well…how are you going to get there? Can you actually do it?
For starters, the answer is YES! With the proper care your hair can grow as long as your little heart desires. Stop the ugly habit of thinking that Black hair cannot grow to fabulous lengths, because it can! The only reason why you haven’t reached your goal to waist length hair is because you haven’t had a clear way or regimen, to get there. Think of growing your hair like growing a healthy garden of flowers. If you have no idea what you’re doing or when to water it, then it’ll dry up and die, right? Exactly—breakage.
The key to achieving waist length hair is consistency. Stay consistent with an effective regimen designed to keep your hair constantly moisturized and protected from the elements. Try to steer clear away from over handling and manipulation.
Most importantly, be PATIENT! A lot of us tend to completely forget this part of growing our hair to max lengths. We get so caught up in wanting longer hair, but we forget that it takes good old fashioned patience to achieve it! Stay away from gimmicks promising long lengths in a short period of time, because chances are you’d be wasting your money. Vitamins/supplements are fine but try to focus on the health of your hair and body, rather than the speediness of growth. Keep track of your growth progress by taking pictures of your hair. Sometimes we don’t really see our progress unless we have pictures to refer back to.
Bottom line: you can do it! Your hair will be at waist length in no time, and you’ll be swinging your natural hair around like Rapunzel!
