Congrats and welcome!
A few things you need to know;
** Your hair isn’t going to grow at the same pace as everyone else’s, one persons hair at 6 months might be some other persons 2 years growth.
** Your hair isn’t going to be the same or look the same as every other person ,it might not look anything like the hair that made you do the big chop… Sorry!
** Don’t let anybody convince you that something that grows naturally out of your scalp doesn’t suit you.. Its impossible.
** Your hair will not grow over night, it takes time and patience.. You also shouldn’t consider hair growth in terms of just length, is your hair healthy?
** You are going to have some days when you miss your relaxed hair .. Try not to let it overwhelm you it will pass.
** Its ok to not comb your hair all the time , finger combing works well too, though you are still going to need a comb occasionally.
** Natural hair does not save cost, it is not cheaper to maintain .. Where did you even get this idea from?
** Conditioner, deep conditioner and moisturisers are your new best friends.
** Shrinkage is real… Get with the program
** basic hairdressing skill to stretch your hair and retain lenght are neccessary
** Nigeria hairdressers are going to be your hairs worst enemy, be strong!
and keep them away from your edges.
