I’m 90% sure that the entire city of Boston is in on some sort of joke. I mean, in Toronto people always make fun of my hair.
In their defense, I’m a mess.
However, I come to Boston and suddenly I’m getting compliments from so many amazing people (Take THAT Tdot)
I’d like to start by thanking my father for this thick, coarse hair. On top of that, I’ve got a few layers of bleach in there. So naturally, the question I get asked the most is how I grew my hair out so long and so healthy?

My trick? Heat.
Makes total sense, right?
When I was trying to grow my hair out, my first instinct was to not use any heat products. Ever.
Try having hair like this and never styling it and let’s see how you manage. It’s not pretty.
So I moved on to the next best thing: rarely using heat.
When I straighten my hair (which is never, because after the third layer of hair this chick would rather fall asleep), it lasts me half a day. Eventually it starts to frizz or it gets heavy. If a higher power is on my side that day and it lasts until I sleep, by the next day it’s a mess and I either need to use more heat or wash it and use heat again.
Thus, the most important thing I did was find a style that would last. I can now curl my hair and use the same style for 3-4 days without having to wash it or use more heat. You’ve all seen my day 1 curly hair, I’m sure. But here is how the rest of this week progressed:
Day Four By day four most people will need to wash their hair. I was just running out to the library, so I got an extra day by creating a textured pony.
P.S., Training your hair not to get oily is an important step in growing out your hair. The last thing you should be doing is washing your hair every day
