I’ve noticed that the ends of my hair are super thick. I try to braid it in two at night, one braid on top and one on the bottom, but it’s impossible for me to braid it to the end. I know that when hair is generally cut pretty blunt, it’s hard to braid it to the end, but I keep wondering if something else is going on with it.
I keep examining my hair (and fallen hair) for breakage and I don’t see any. I make sure that I oil my hair well to keep it moisturized, although I think a water base moisturizer would be better at this point. (Any suggestions of a good water based moisturizer?). Maybe this is just how it is at this stage? What could be the cause?
I’ve also noticed that my hair feels like a different texture. It’s definitely more wavy than it was when I was younger and it feels like even a different texture than it was before I cut it. I attribute it to the fact that not only does it airdry (which generally makes my hair feel more dry and course than it is, but it airdries out. I don’t have the length to put it in a bunnytail/ponypuff and braid the end of it for it to dry.
In addition, it needs to dry in whatever style I plan to have otherwise I’d end up manipulating it too much to get it into the style I want. Which pretty much means that letting it airdry in 4 braids/twists is kind of out of the question. I can always try it again just for good measure though.
At the end of the day, it’s definitely still growing… and now I’m not the only one who noticed!
Shelli of Hairscapadeswould be proud. I actually have a flower in my hair today!
