This weekend I went to Natural Resources Salon for my quarterly blow out, trim and Every day Beauty hairstyle (See photo gallery below). Usually, I bring my iPhone to document the process as well as to do a length check for the world to see. This time I felt less inclined to do so. For a few different reasons.
Length Checks Make Me Impatient
You know, what I’m talking about. You’ve been looking at so and so’s hair. You’re ready for your hair to get to that length. You start obsessing about their hair length and regimen. You compare your hair to their hair. Every few months your checking how long your hair is. You start counting how long you’ve been natural. Oh Lawd, what’s wrong with my hair? Why isn’t it growing? Ok maybe impatient was the wrong word. It makes me CRAZY!!!
I’m Practicing Patience
I’ve had my hair mishaps. But I’m on the right track now. I’m finally content with My Hair. My regimen is working. I know that I’m retaining length. I’m seeing growth. I want to be surprised by the length of my hair. I figure I’ll wait 6 months for my next length check. Maybe even longer than that. My hair is already bra strap length. I don’t really want tailbone length hair. I mean, I’m not going prevent my hair from getting that long but I’m ok with around mid back length and retaining that length.
Long Hair Doesn’t Make You More of An Expert
Say NO to the Length Checks!!! Who’s with me?
How often do you do a length check?
