Hair Talk: My Natural Hair + Hair Growth Challenge

Hello loves!
As you know or may not know, I wear weaves and have been wearing sew-in weaves and extensions for years. People always get surprised by my natural hair, so I wanted do blog post about my real hair and answering questions that I constantly get regarding my natural hair.

When I was younger I had no clue how to properly take care of my natural hair – I used get my hair relaxed regularly and apply heat constantly without using any kind of heat protector. A few years ago I decided to stop straightening my natural hair, and only wear my sew-in weaves. To my surprise my hair started to grow like crazy.

I have now come to a stage where my hair is at its longest and I am eager to see how long it can get. I realx my hair twice a year and I have not straightened my natural hair in two years apart from my leave-out when I wear my sew-ins.

FAQ:
1. Why do you wear weaves when your hair is already long?
I love the fact that I am able to do whatever hairstyle or colour I want with my weave, without damaging my natural hair. Sew-ins are protective hairstyles that basically protects my natural hair and when my hair is protected from heat, like I mentioned, my hair grows.
2. Why do you never wear your natural hair out?
I love changes and I usually get extremely bored with one hairstyle for a long time, with my weaves I can change hairstyle much more often and again without damaging my natural hair. I do wear my natural hair out, but as I’m not happy with the length of my hair I wear my weaves more often.

So I am up for this “hair growth challenge” that I wanted to share with you. I will continue to wear my weave but start taking care of my natural hair under my weave a lot better. So stay tuned for length checks, updates and much more of my natural hair.

  1. Yay girl! But it dont get it, the curly ends of ur hair in the first pic, is that your natural curl pattern? since u said it is relaxed??

    Either way ur hair is gorgeous 🙂 och ja fattar va du menar me protective styles, men ditt har e verkligen asfint already o long enough x

    1. Tack gumman:) I want it longer and thicker tho 🙂 And no that’s not my natural curl pattern, the relaxer makes my curls a lot looser. x

      1. hey love i only use “as i am” coconut co wash cleansing conditioner and then i use any silicone free conditioner for my drug mart so i use organix coconut conditioner and it doesn’t have harsh chemicals lol very simple but your hair has grown so long i think i should do something to protect my hair for a while too xx

  2. Well, I love curly hair. And mine is straight but not as straight as I would like! I would die for naturally curly hair!
    I rot for you in your challenge, Nic!!! ❤ (I'm trying to grow out my hair too!) I know that coconut oil is amazing for hair growth! 😉

  3. Your hair is gorgeous!! I feel the same way as you about wearing weave. I have long hair (not as long as yours) but I love to wear my extensions. Reading this really makes me want to get a sew-in, since I’m trying to grow my hair longer.
