Now onto today's post.

Hi AN,

My last retouch was on the 12th of September 2012. however, I have come to the conclusion that my hair isn't growing any more and I would love to chop it all off and start afresh. if I do this, I stand the risk of looking like

a primary school student and so I'd prefer to do it gradually. Right now, I made twist with the dreads attachment, but I cut off about 1 inch of the hair before making it.

I would love to get a proper hair regimen to follow to enable my hair grow and to aid the going natural process cos I know I have a huge task ahead of me since my hair gets really difficult to come and all.

Thank you.


Hi T,

Thanks for getting in touch with us. I really don't think there's a big deal in chopping your hair off. Who doesn't want to look younger?  Lol. 

However, if you really feel uncomfortable doing that, how about chopping it off, and using a wig to cover it till it grows out to a substantial length. This will enable you to start caring for your natural hair early enough.

Don't worry about the task ahead of you, it is not as sumbersome as you might think. 

What are you trying to achieve with your potential regimen? Is it long hair, healthy hair, soft hair, or a combination of all? This will help you pick a regimen wisely. I can't really recommend, cos there is no hard and fast rule, but I can guide you.

So I suggest that you read the following posts. By the time you are done with them, you should be able to come up with something feasible.
