Do You Have 4 -11 Hours To Care For Natural Hair Every Week?

Do you have 4-11 hours to care for natural hair every week

Do you dream of having long flowing drool worthy natural hair? Most of us do and some of us can gladly say that we have achieved it. I am here to tell you that waist length hair even hip length hair is very achievable and if you make it there, you will have a lot of fun taking the most exotic selfies you can imagine.

You will fool the average instagramer with your smiles and enjoy them envying that kinky long hair of yours but secretly you will know the truth. You will know that your detangling sessions take hours and that if the wind blows a bit too hard your hair will create the biggest knots known to man!

Maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration but there is a trend going round in the waist length and beyond natural hair club. The latest trend involves scissors and less stress, as many of these women have decided to cut their hair back to what they call a more 'manageable length".

Well if you want Looooong hair then prepare to take care of it. I have shortish medium hair and it takes 3 hours to wash it and stuff like that so what’s 3 or 4 more? I’ll make a day of it. =)

I love this article because it’s heartfelt and gives true understanding of the pros and cons of long hair. My hair is almost bsl and I’m reaching for wl, but to see if I can pull it off. As for detangling and washing, I don’t mind making pampering love to my hair because I love doing it. But I will say that I did love my twa and how quickly it was to style it. So I suppose it depends on the individual and the lifestyle she has. Again great post!

I can totally relate with this. I had thick (4c) natural hair that was shoulder length when stretched. a proper detangling, washing and conditioning session took about 3 hours. about the same time to straighten the hair. Hours spent on the perfect style would be wasted by shrinkage due to sweat, rain etc.. I had to take swimming classes for a semester in school, it was so stressful mentally and physically. I couldn’t deal with the stress at some point so I relaxed it, then cut it after a while.

I have had three separate natural hair journeys, and I now realise that the best part for me in all three has been the TWA stage (even when it wasn’t teeny weeny). I would wear my hair out daily, with no worry about shrinkage. my hair was very healthy AND beautiful with little maintenance.
