4C Hair Chronicles: Length Retention & Growth


It never ceases to amaze me at how amazed people are when I show them the length of my hair. I feel like people really think just because I have MAJOR shrinkage that what they see is really all they get when it comes to my hair.

WRONG HOMIE! 
MY HAIR IS DUMB LONG!!! SOMEONE GIVE ME A FLAT IRON (sike)


Immediately after people see how long my hair is...their next question is how do I grow and retain my length?!

Length retention and hair growth are HUGE topics in the natural hair community especially for women with type 4 hair that can be...a tad challenging to say the least.
