So I decided to install a protective style (Senegalese twists) on Saturday. The stylist asked if I had any plans to have a relaxer touch up soon. I informed her about my hair journey and the need to stretch my relaxers. Before I could say Jack Robinson, she told me that all the stuff I read about healthy hair journey online are all a lie. She went on to say that a relaxer touch up should be done every 6 weeks as stated on the relaxer kit pack. She said she is a well experienced stylist since 1989, so I should heed her advice. She said it was also impossible for one to have waist length. If it were true, her hair should be reaching her feet by now.
I am even more motivated to continue on this journey. My doubting thomases are part of my inspiration.
I intend to grow at least 10 inches of my hair in 12 months.
The standard growth rate for my hair is 1/2 inch every month. This should results in 6 inches in 12 months. However, I have decided to take on this challenge.
THE CATCH: I made a bet with a friend to give him 1000USD by December 31st 2015 if I acheive waist length hair. However, he will give me the 1000USD if I attain the goal.
Blogging is a means to document the journey to the goal.
