Hip Length Relaxed Hair And The Regimen That Created It

Hip length hairI don't know if any of you relaxed ladies also follow the Relaxed Hair Health blog. If you do, you will already have seen the interview that Nadege did with Miss "HairRoots". I thought I'd heard of all the long haired chicas out there but Miss "HairRoots" must have passed me by because I wasn't aware of her until I saw the interview.

I think I've written before about how so many ladies are in the 'stuck at BSL' brigade. Not to rain on anyone's parade, BSL is without a doubt 'long hair' by anyone's  standards but it usually takes something extra special to get to waist length and beyond.

Here are the main points that I picked up as main reasons for Miss Roots' success in growing her hair to hip length.

Does this lady have a blog or youtibe channel?

Colletta Dailey

24 weeks between relaxers? Her hair is practically natural then….might as well stop relaxing altogether! Her regimen is very similar to what us natural girls do.

Rivian Jones

It’s called a stretch I do a 6 mos stretch and going natural is still a big difference from doing a stretch. Also you do know the so called natural regimen has been done for years by women of color.

Colletta Dailey

I dont care what anyone says…if youre only doing 2 relaxers a year thats as close to natural as u can get! Thankfully everyone has freedom to choose! I can recall my hair never getting past BSL when i was relaxed….no matter how u try to sugar coat it, relaxers are extremely brutal on our hair and unless u wait months between retouches its almost impossible to retain length. So happy to be creamy crack free!

Rivian Jones

To each is own you can’t say that for everyone because all of our hair textures or not the same. I permed every 6 wks i retained length and my hair didn’t break. I also had a stylist for a Aunt who had me on a very low maintenance hair regiment. I believe it depends on the person but that’s just my opinion.

What is a very low maintenance hair regimen for thinning hair?

Colletta Dailey

Relaxed hair is just inherently weak. No way around it! U definitely CAN retain growth but u always have to treat it with kid gloves. It was just too much for ME, but definitely to each his/her own! We are all STILL beautiful at the end of the day…relaxed or natural….. and its just hair! 🙂 Be blessed, my sista.

Rivian Jones

I agree!

Jenny JackJack

I’m hip length and I stretch my relaxed hair for many months! I’ve been long, thick , and relaxed for 22 years with no problems. By the way my hair is easy to maintain, requires minimal products, and always looks good . I do not baby my hair.

Why does my hair break off soon as it reaches shoulder length?

Ashley R. Himes

You are probably over processing your hair..

Alisha Peele

I only relax it 4 times a year

Shamika Joseph Downey

Same problem I had with perms, I went natural and now my hair is almost bra-strap length
