Hey are any of you ladies trying to grow your hair to waist length?

Right now I'm apl touching BSL I had a major set back because I wasn't taking care of my hair, and I cut my hair but now I'm finally a inch or two away from BSL and I have started back taking care of my hair.

I was natural but I decided to get a texlax but now I've been stretching it my last Texlax was end of June I believe and now I have so much new growth and my hair is so freaking thick I don't know what to do..

I am growing my hair out, but I don't use any chemicals. If you prefer straighter hair, I would do a blowout or roller set. If you are happy with kinkier hair, I would do braidouts, strawsets or protective styles. I'm happy with my texture so, I dont manipulate my hair often. I wear my hair back half of the week though. Thick hair is good.

My hair has been down to my waist band (I wear low rise jeans) for years. My texture is springy curls now but growing up it was kind of a mess because I would 'fight' my texture instead of just letting it 'be' my hair.
BSL (below shoulder length) my hair is more curly. I keep it this long as kind of a 'tamer'... The longer the better for me.

I don't want straighter hair which is why I got a texlax I just wanted a loser curl pattern, kinda like this lady right here



My hair is so thick though because of the stretch and new growth that my hair is like freaking matted at the root, I hate it.

Well I hate my hair texture it gets so tangled so fast and matted at that.

Yea I know what you mean it is especially hard if your hair is really thick at the roots, like I have very weird hair, my hair is thin, like its not very full, but it is really thick at the root.

I have tried every hair product out their on my head. I been using these products for a year now and my hair is very strong and less breakage .

Hydratherma Naturals the bestproduct in the world ,little pricey but its well worth .

She did the big chop , her hair is gorgeous. When black women take care of their hair its simply gorgeous. My hair is medium thick but very curly. I notice the keratin treatment keeps its straight and not so frizzy.

My hair definitely tangles a lot. Its going to be hard because of the difference in textures. Have you tried adding more moisturizer to your roots? I use Cantu Shea Butter leave-in on my roots with a drop of cold pressed castor oil mixed in. I'm going to be honest and say I don't put much maintanence into my hair... I'll henna every once in a while. I've never straightened since I've been natural, but I might for a holiday.

Yea I'm not going to do a big chop, I didn't do it last time and I'm not going to do it next time, I'm just going to grow it out with braids when it gets really long.

I'm going to be honest and say the difference of the hair textures and strengths may cause your hair to break. Im only assuming.

Yes I have put shea butter on my roots and Elasta QP leave in conditioner detangler the elasta QP is ok but my hair is still very tangle and matted, I just mostly leave it in four braids I also dont do much to it, but I'm afraid with he matting it might just break off and set me back.

It could if I be more careful and take my time detangling I shouldn't have a issue, I have did this before and was able to go back to natural with out a big chop..
