5. You are unrealistic
Some of us have very slow growth rates, so your hair is not going to grow as fast as Sassy’s, but it is growing so be patient, get a hobby that doesn’t involve a tape measure every month. If you have a slow growth rate then you have to wear more protective styles, they will change the game for you.
Oh and please trim your hair, forget about the notion that trimming your hair sets you back. The truth is you might have already had a setback that a trim could have fixed, and trimming prevents more than you realize.
6. You aren’t studying
Education is everything when you want to get better at something. For example if you want to lose weight you do some research find the best plan for you and stick with it. Constantly educate yourself about hair care and build a plan that you will and must stick with no matter what.
It is ok to ask questions but know that your favorite hair forum or hair guru will not be the one to care for your hair for you, so get to reading.
7. You have scalp issues but haven’t seen a doctor
Girl if your scalp is irritated constantly and you have no idea why, do not just go out and buy every essential oil under the sun, see a professional. These things don’t always pan out, we know that but it helps to seek help because maybe a doctor might have the answer. If your scalp isn’t happy, your hair will not be happy, it is the source of all things related to growth.
8. You aren’t consistent
When you have your plan stick to it, no changes, no switching products that are working fine for you on a whim. If you can find a replacement for water then by all means switch it out otherwise keep it simple. Some women have regimens that are only tweaked as their hair grows, they stick with what works right now, a great low stress process.
Well there you have it, 8 reasons you might not be retaining length, if you have covered all these things and you are still having trouble then just contact us in the forum, we will gladly take a stab at your issue 🙂
