Ya got me on whatever those are?
The alfalfa?; Growth I got, I just hate buying a new brush before every meeting.
! Each time I've chopped it all off, it's grown back FASTER. First time I grew it out, it reached about 3/4 of the way down my back, and took 6.5 years to get there. It was wrapping around my neck in the middle of the night and choking me, though, so I cut it off. Wife didn't believe I was going to do it! I found I "missed" it, though, so grew it back. That time it took 7 years, but I was starting to "sit" on it when tied back, which was rather painful, so I cut it off again. I really felt like my hair had become my "identity", on top of needing
it short to try to get a job, so I kept it short for the next 3-4 years. Once I got the job I have now, I felt like it was Ok to start growing it again, and it's only been about 3-4 years, and it's already between the 1st and 2nd lengths, right about the top of my belt.
As far as "product", I've used that "Mane and Tail" shampoo/conditioner, which was originally designed for horses, before, and it seemed to help "strengthen" my hair, but most of the time now I just use Tresemme' moisturizing shampoo (cheap, and works well). Even when I use a brush (every other day, when undoing my braid), I only get a small "wad" of hair pulled out, about the size of a quarter.
