This is my current length:
Notice the see through spot in the lower middle of my hair.... PROBLEM. I do not want to have to deal with a setback that will cause me to have to cut my hair when one of my goals is to wear my real hair for my wedding! The only thing I can think of that could be causing the thinning is wearing tight ponytails/buns in the same spot. My hair had been giving me the blues last stretch so I wore buns
EVERYDAY often..... guess who won't be doing that anymore? Especially if it's going to cause stress to my strands like this.
I have come up with a sort of regimen that should get me through this potential issue and put me on the fast track to reaching BSL by June:
- Wash every 5 days (alternate shampoo and conditioner washes)
- DC with every wash (usually with heat)
- Apply MN mix to scalp every 3 days
- Moisturize with current product every other day (until it becomes to dry outside for it)
- Seal ends with oils
- Stay away from ponytails/buns and anything else that can create too much tension in my head
- ATTEMPT rollersetting every other week
- Trim/dust as needed
Also I need to look into some protective styles that could last a while, I tend to do better when I'm not able to touch my hair as much. From the pic, I gestimate being about 2- 2 1/2 inches away from APL? I'm really wanting to make it by the end of the year so I gotta be on top of caring for my hair. You know what's crazy? I used to be extremely diligent about hair care in the beginning........ now I'm really lackadaisical; that needs to change if I am serious about my goals.
I washed my hair Monday and I decided to rollerset it:
With the humidity being like in the 90's all week it did not stay like this lol but I do still have somewhat of a hair style...... Prolly time to comb these curls out some though:)
I will make sure and keep you guys posted on how my hair is coming along!!
