That my hair “grows like a weed”. It really doesn’t, it’s just that I cut it myself (practically weekly) but instead of a few inches I take off 1/4 of an inch or less. Going to the salon, even once is a huge set back as far as length goes.
I guess I have probably saved a few hundred dollars by not getting my hair cut for a few years, I have also saved a few hundred by not getting it foiled. It looks much better too!
I’m still taking
Biotin regularly which helps, a liquid multi mineral. I have just added MSM, just a small amount daily (while I see how it works).
You measure your hair from the front hairline all the way to the back. My coworker measured it for me a year ago. It was 33 and a quarter. Yesterday it was 36 inches! Lol!
It’s not only longer than ever, it’s healthier. I no longer have a lot of highlights from the salon in my hair. My ends look ‘fresh’ because I trim tiny amounts off all the time at home (I have scissors for cutting hair).
I make sure to condition my hair a few times a week by putting a good oil on the ends. I like jojoba, argan, & coconut.
I rinse my hair with diluted apple cider vinegar almost every time I wash it. IT always looks better when I do this and feels softer.
My hair looks best and feels best when I remember to brush it with a boar bristle brush. I do this a few times a week.
My hair is long and kind of light brown with reddish and blond highlights. Or it’s dark blond with reddish highlights. Either way, it looks sunny & people seem to like the color. It’s the first time I have had mostly natural hair (I do use olive oil, honey etc to lighten it sometimes).
My biggest problem with my hair is tangles & and my attitude towards them. I have no patience for tangles and want them out immediately. They happen more often when I wear a scarf or a hoodie or something around my neck.
My hair might be this color (see painting) but with more blond around the bottom half. Also, it’s not wavy, it’s straight.
today. I think today was a good day to trim because it’s around the full moon.
I have some honey and olive oil in it right now to make the colors look pretty:)
30 minutes ‘till work!! Time to wash it out!
This picture came up when I looked up “honey hair”
It’s the perfect time to trim for thickness (according to the Morocco Method haircutting calendar)
Here are some really great tips for taking care of your long hair at night. Oiling your hair before bed & braiding or wrapping your hair to prevent tangle (ooooooh tangles!)
I’ve stopped conditioning it on the top half. I’m also using the boar bristle brush regularly & going longer between washes. Using the brush & not conditioning on the top makes it look really clean and shiny.
I really need to take my biotin & silica daily. They are great for my hair, why don’t I just take them!
I love her hair, it looks so soft and shiny & natural.
I have fallen in love with a new natural shampoo and conditioner.
Griffin Remedy, Daily shampoo & reconstructing conditioner. It’s not expensive and works really well! :)
I feel like my hair is thinning in the front right at the widows peak (although,it’s always looked like that a bit). I’m thinking about starting to take saw palmetto for it (I have done my research).
My hair feels like it’s breaking off and I have to start focusing on the oil treatments again.
I read some Shakespeare tonight and I loved it!!
'Elf all my hair in knots.'--Shakespeare
To entangle mischievously, as an elf might do.
I love her long golden hair & kelp locks…..
I am trying to leave my hair alone. I love to trim the ends. It’s 33 1/4 inches (from hairline in the front, to the back tip) I had my coworker measure it a while back. Unfortunately it was the exact same length when he measured it about 8 months ago! Which means I trim it way too much.
I have been doing little things to make it look lighter. The other day I gave it a salt soak! I mixed about a cup of Himalayan salt in water & left it on while I spent time in the sun. My natural color without sun is just this dark blond/light brown that doesn’t have much spark! I’m trying to add that in without damaging my hair.
Argon oil is one of the most amazing hair oils. It’s soo expensive so I just use a few drops here and there on the ends.

red hair! I love what she has done with it.
I’m making hair rinses that I leave on for a few minutes every time just before I shampoo my hair.
Warm water with lime/lemon juice, honey and apple cider vinegar. They leave hair bright and shiny when it dries.
Wind is the enemy of long hair & always leads to tangles!
I love this painting though :P
