So, my hair is currently upper-mid back length. I’d like it to be a lot longer, but I’ll take any length I can get!
My mom told me that I should have regular trims, but I’ve already been doing that (on my own- salons cut it too short) and I’m not seeing a difference in length from last year!
The culprit could be that I used to dye my hair constantly (like every few weeks, drugstore dye, bleach) and so maybe the second half of my hair is still just too damaged. But I haven’t dyed it in over a year, plus I don’t see any split ends or obvious signs of damage.
I would take biotin supplements but last time I did, they gave me cystic acne. Right now I’m just using a conditioner and shampoo (I have to shampoo every day bc I work out a lot) and I just want to know what else I can do!
Should I get trims like my mom says or just let it keep growing? Should I stop using hair products with silicones? They seem to make my hair shinier and less likely to tangle, but could they be drying it out?
