FroBunni | Length Check: I'm Grazing Tailbone Length

OMG! Look at this! I'm officially grazing tailbone length, which is awesome! I retained a total of two inches this year, which isn't a lot, but it's something. For one, it has been quite hard retaining length since I got to mid-back length (MBL). This is to be expected, since the longer hair gets, the more fragile the ends. So, it's nice to see the extra TLC has been effective.

There's a couple things I have been doing that I think have made a difference:

  • Tea Rinses: Tea rinses help reduce shedding, as well as strengthen the hair shaft. 
  • Deep conditioning with heat: Heat opens the hair's cuticle, which allows the deep conditioner to better penetrate the hair shaft. 
  • When I moisturize and seal, going over my ends twice with my leave-in or water: This ensure my ends are properly moisturized, which keep them from breaking or getting damaged. I have noticed my single strand knots haven't been as plentiful this year.
  • Alternative parts: This means not parting the same way over and over again. I'll follow up with a post about this, but I think parting the same way (for years) was thinning certain parts of my hair.
  • Keeping scissors in the bathroom: Most times, I do my hair in the bathroom, but the scissors I use to trim my hair are in my bedroom. Because of this, when I would get to a knot, I would rip it out. This is a huge no-no because it cause damage and split ends to the hair, and even contribute to knots and tangles later on. So by keeping my scissors in the bathroom, I can easily cut off the knot, reducing breakage and damage everywhere else. 

Even though these have been effective, it will be interesting to see if I can continue to retain length. I'm hoping to get to full tailbone length next year, but like I said previously, the longer the hair, the harder it is to retain length. But I have hope, nonetheless. Here's to another year!

  1. You must try out Cococare hair oil for better conditioning and it helps to moisturize the scalp and repair weak and damaged hair. Daily use will restore luster.
