I've been asking myself this question for a little while now. Do you think us hair journey ladies do too much to achieve our length goals? Do we want reach SL, APL, BSL, etc so bad that we will try anything to get there? When I first started my hair journey, in my opinion, one of the most popular questions was "how do I get my hair to grow faster?" Growth potions, cooch cream, the Inversion Method, vitamins, and Mineral Rich, and countless other products are out there claiming to increase our growth rate. Towards the beginning of my hair journey I tried two different growth potions. I don't know if they helped me or not because I didn't use them consistently. I am not bashing these products and those that choose to try them. Now I have come to a point in my journey that I just want to enjoy the ride. I've obsessed over length before and it was not fun and an unnecessary stressor.
So I pose the question again. Do we do too much too achieve length? Should we just enjoy the journey and celebrate meeting goals as they come?
