This is a repost of a blogpost I published on www.hairlista.com
In the past few months I lost a lot of hair which I attribute to postpartum hair loss. The last time I relaxed my hair in November, the stylist pointed out that I had ONLY new growth in some parts of my hair.
I have really neglected my hair in the last few months since having a baby. Although truth be told my hair care regimen before baby was very basic and not nurturing in anyway. I never seemed to be able to grow hair past neck length for the past two years.
A few weeks before I had my baby I had afokinky twists done and kept that for about 8 weeks. When I took that off, my hair had finally grown to shoulder length which I know now was helped by pregnancy hormones, the protective style and relaxer stretching.
Now my hair is limp and generally unhealthy after breakage and hairloss. This has led me to take away control of my hair from the stylist and I have been educating myself on relaxed hair care.
I have started a healthy hair journey and I resolve to take better care of my hair, be mindful of what I put on it in order to grow back a full head of hair.
Wish me luck :)
