Hannah Pool Black Hair Documentary.

I saw this small documentary on Black hair by Hannah Pool. The link was posted on the Black Hair magazines Facebook page. It covers the usual discussions on identity and culture but alas it concluded it was about personal choice. I do feel more black women are informed about their hair these days. You simply just cannot tell a Black woman how she should wear or style her hair or whether its okay to wear weave or au natural. If she does not feel the choice is hers she will not care what you think.

Trimmed and treated

I was not able to take pictures yesterday. However I finally went to the hairdresser and sorted out my split ends. The breakage was so sporadic that he had to trim what needed to and then blend where was necessary. So for now my hair is at different lengths or layered. My stylist took off 1 1/2 inches. I also had a deep treatment too which was much needed. 

One thing though. My stylist does not believe that you can grow your hair by following any set routine. He feels that from his experience your hair will grow to its own desired length then stop and brake off. I think he meant natural shedding. I have however seen otherwise on others. I should sort out my hairs breakage and prove him wrong. But more so show myself with a little determination my hair can grow longer and healthier. 

What home treatments do you recommend?
