This year, I am vowing to let it grow! I've been reading some forums on Naturally Curly and watching videos on youtube, especially Naptural 85 and following the Newly Natural blog. I'd also tried some books, but most of them were too general. My hair is soooo kinky and it breaks so easily, I need some products and tips that are specific to my type. So, this summer, I did not cut my hair off. No, it's not long, but for once, it's healthy!! I've been co-conditioning and conditioning it and keeping it covered at night. I also try to keep it twisted more often which is a chore because it takes about 2 hours to do it right! It's a serious learning process and I'm determined to see it through! I'm still looking for the right mixture of products, so if you have some tips, let me know!
