Operation: Grow My Hair Back

I know that I touched on this in the post but I wanted to dedicate a post specifically to my efforts in growing my hair back. It has been quite the adjustment with dealing with shorter hair.  The benefit to this new cut is that I can get an accurate read on what my actual texture is. I thought that the back section of my hair grew in looser. I couldn't be more wrong. It's 4c along with the rest of my hair. I think between the color and heat, the front section of my hair needs a lot of TLC. My edges can stand to be thicker as well.

The picture is of the items that I will be using to give my hair a bit of growth booth.

1. Wild Growth Hair Oil: I use the regular formula. I apply a quarter size amount throughout my head. I also focus it on my edges. Then I massage it in using the next item. I use this every other day to avoid a lot of build up.

2.Scalp Invigorator fromVanity Planet: I use this to massage the WGHO in. I also focus on my edges for about 45 sections each. I also use it when I shampoo my hair. The Invigorator helps to clean and exfoliate the scalp to lift dirt and dead skin cells from the scalp.

3. Mane Choice's It Doesn't Get Much "Butter" Than This: This butter is suppose to help strengthen the hair and stimulate the regrowth of thinning edges. On the days that I moisturize and seal my hair I put a bit on my edges and massage it in.

4. Manetabolism Vitamins: Doubles your hair's growth rate. If you get the average half inch of growth a month than the vitamins help you to get up to an inch a month. I take two pills at night with a full bottle of water.

5. No heat. You all already know that I am taking a break from heat. My long tern goal is to go a 6 months heat free. When I want to pamper myself, I'll go the shop and get a professional flat twist out done. If I can manage the 6 months, I just might go a bit longer.

It's time to get my hair in order!


  1. You can do it girl! You have a plan and a good line-up of products. I am dealing with thinned out edges due to post partum shedding, so I am trying JBCO to see if it helps. I will join you and commit to no heat for at least 6 months. After my mishap, I have no desire to use heat anytime soon.

    1. Yay! It's great to have a buddy in this. I'm trying for 3 months but thinking about pushing it to 6 months. I have a desire to straighten my hair because I want to see how it looks straight and to see the actual length but I'm not gonna do it.
