  1. You’re obviously blessed with lovely long, thick hair. It’s up to you, of course, but it seems like you’re doing things the hard way, working with 2 textures. Still, you seem to be getting away with it. Would just hate you to damage the natural growth and undo all that hard work…as u know, it’s very weak at the point where the 2 textures meet. If I were you I’d probably cut the straight bits off, especially as its so long anyway. But then, I don’t have your kind of patience. Around 1/2 per month is about right, so they say. I’d be happy with 4 inches a year. Good on ya girl!

    • Thanks Curlyshirly. To be honest it’s a challenge, I want to reach a particular goal. The stringy ends reminds me of how far I have to go. Many many years ago i grew out a perm and to be honest it was much easier, because back then there was no advice or info available, so I just swept it back into a ponytail greased down with pomade with mineral oils and petroleum, no deep conditioning or conditoners, just water and pomade and my hair was fine. The problem I have with the industry at the moment is that it’s big big big business so everyone is offering unnecessary lotions and potions. As you say I’m over the worst where the two textures are concerned and in certain styles those stringy ends gives me the extra look of length that I appreciate. If I had to big chop, I would not have gone natural, so I just want to demonstrate to others that you can go natural and keep your length all the way 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for this site!

    I have decided to go natural but abhorred the idea of a big chop (I have a large and odd shaped head plus I like the versatility of longer hair). It is so refreshing to see encouragement and proof that I don’t have to big chop. I’m only a little more then 7 months in and all seems well. I’m in a bit of an awkward stage right now but as my hair grows, I know that this is temporary. I can’t wait for your book to come out. Thank you!!!

    • No, thank you. You will have many moments of awkwardness, but stick with it. I used a wig for really difficult days. In fact I put one on today, because I detangled my hair and washed it, but did not have time to moisturise etc. My wig is my go to on bad hair days friend.
