I had my ends dusted my last relaxer. I have the same testimony as having healthy hair but not making it past shoulder length. So, I have started self relaxing and I will be dusting my ends as needed. I had a friend of mine closely inspect my strands and ends today and she said they looked fine. She is a natural waist length, so I trust her judgement. says shes going to help me reach my first goal which is BSL.
Then if I feel comfortable enough to care for all of that hair I will go for waist length.
