Now I still have breakage, but I know why. I colored my hair before I started this experiment and I have a lot of weak, old, split and dried out ends from the color yet trimming will handle that. Right now, I just trim my hair when I see any crazy hairs or damage like split ends or trichoclasis. However, I don’t intend to start formally trimming until the end of the 5 years.
So based on the these three years I have more words of wisdom:
1) Measure your hair AND take pictures

2) Enjoy your hair: Really!!!
Sometimes, I get so obsessed with getting to a certain length, I’m not enjoying my hair right now. Other people actually rather enjoy seeing my hair out and about in a free style, yet me, I’m just very blasé about my hair. I think because I really am surprised when my hair grows, because for so long I really thought it wouldn’t get past a certain point. Yet slowly but surely, (very slowly by the way) my hair is inching along and growing.
So that is it. I can’t believe three years have passed, but I plan to stay the course and lay off the heat for the next two years. Below are the results of a poll I took from February to May. The majority agrees, lay off the heat. So that is what I plan to do.
