Tracking Growth

I don't do length checks with measurements often. Its more of a yearly thing and the reason why is, my hair does NOT grow down. It grows out. I was very depressed thinking about my hair length and other naturals who had exceeded my growth. I was wondering what the heck is going on. It took awhile but I had to realize my hair strands are very fragile and once I hit a certain length if I don't protective style then I DO NOT retain my length. I was going crazy thinking about it but then I had to do a reality check. I enjoy wearing my hair out , if I want longer hair then I need to focus on protecting it. I cant lament something when I'm not doing something to improve the situation. I know my hair is growing because my puffs tell the story. I could have longer length if I tried harder but eh, I'm going to make it do what it do baby!

Here's a look at my puffs over the last year and a half ( most recent to oldest). Growth indeed, I just need to simmer down like a good grasshopper and commit if that's what I really want.

I know the feeling. This go round, I'm not focusing on length but the overall health of my hair. I like wearing my hair out plus at this point in life I've gotten lazy and don't always want to spend the time it takes to do protective styles.
