Throughout my natural journey, in the beginning, I was using excessive heat on my hair & was wondering why my hair wasn’t retaining much length. When I removed direct heat from my hair regimen I've been able to retain my length and noticed my hair is retaining most of its length beside the split ends I trim off during a trim time. Using my length check shirt I probably get about 1/4-1/2 of an inch trimmed off; unless I need more. If you’re not already doing this you can add some of these tips into your hair care regimen to help you to retain length.
