Throughout my natural hair journey, I like to do length checks every year to be able to see my growth. Sometimes we feel like our hair isn’t growing or growing fast enough to our liking. Tracking your progress will help you to see the growth of your hair. I've had some setbacks in my journey from chopping off my whole braids during my crochet braid takedown. Got a trim that turned into a cut, loss 3 inches with what was only suppose to be a trim. I say this to say that its only hair it'll grow back don’t get depressed because of you lose a couple of inches of hair. I rather have healthy hair over length; thin see through ends isn’t healthy hair and needs to be cut off. But that’s a whole other subject that I won't get into, this blog post is about my length check journey. Below I will post a video on how I blow dry and flat iron my hair for my trim. I will also post a couple of my length checks picture throughout my 6 years of being natural.
