I'll be honest, I've taken my hair down the dangerous road of heat styling with no leave in conditioner, bad $8 haircuts, and diy bleaching in the past and I've tried every hair care line, biotin pill, and pyramid scheme product line that promised to grow my hair inches in months. They're pretty much all money pits and here's the truth people: there's no miracle conditioner that will give you Kim K length locks overnight. Trust me, I've already cried about it too. In the end, you just have to put in the long, hard time and effort to make your tresses happy and healthy.
Rewind to 10th grade Carl who straightened and curled everyday, added no heat protection to my hair routine, and used $3 shampoo: it was a rough time I will tell you what...
I'm Greek and I have big, fat, Greek hair that does not chill out for anyone. So, when I started heat styling everyday, I lost 4 inches of my hair in a year. I would go for trims to clean up the ends, but then I put my hair through the ringer with my hair care routine and it only got shorter. After I went blonde and back to brunette 3 times, I decided to be done with extensions and weaves and I wanted to grow my hair long and strong the right way. Once I started taking my hair seriously and working hard to keep it healthy, my hair has grown 4+ inches in the last year. My hair issues revolve around big, frizzy hair that I can't keep soft and smooth, but this routine can also help super thin hair grow healthy and strong! So, this is my routine:
