How To Grow Naturally Curly Hair: My Journey to BSL

natural hair growth

Natural hair growth should not be synonymous to a struggle. True story, my hair NEVER use to grow past my collar bone! I assumed it was just never meant to be longer. I was wrong! Your hair can and WILL GROW.  Growing your hair could be stressful! Especially, if you don’t know what you are doing and you aren’t seeing the results you believe you should have. I decided to stop relaxing my hair in 2011. From 2011 to 2013, I transitioned my hair. In 2013, I cut all of my relaxed ends off…and it was the BEST decision I ever made for the health of my hair. After cutting all of my relaxed ends off, my hair was ear length (curly) but neck length when straightened. It was short as hell, but it looked healthier! From there, I gave myself a goal, no particular time limit, to reach BSL. Three years later, I survived to tell you how I did it. This isn’t a “grow your hair immediately” type post. It took 3 years to see this growth from my mini chop. Keep reading to see how it is possible to grow your hair longer.

C is for Curls: Fall wash routine

My curls and I have a love and hate relationship. I hate my hair in the summer, but I love it in the fall/winter. When you have curly hair, it screams for constant moisture (it’s so needy!) and if you don’t give it what it wants/needs, you won’t be happy with the outcome. In the summer, humidity is high and it causes curly hair to frizz. However, in the colder months, moisture is easily kept in our hair, at least for mines. I use the least amount of products in colder months and I mostly wear my hair out (wash-n-go). Now, let me show you my fall curly hair routine!
