My Hair Insecurity

Monday, 12 September 2011

So I was a little sceptical about writing this post, but I managed to find some courage. I'm not sure if any of you have a 'hair insecurity', but unfortunately I do. For as long as I can remember, I never had any length on the sides/edges of my hair. I account this to stylists pulling my edges so tight when I used to get my hair braided, I remember one time this lady did my hair so tight I cried (I think I was about 11 at the time), so now I'm left with these horrible edges, I hate them so much!!!
To promote some growth I used to apply the sulphur oil mix to the edges, but as sulphur can be drying I don't want to risk any sulphur getting onto the edges and drying them out. Now I'm using Jamaican black castor oil mixed with a little peppermint oil and hopefully I will see some growth.
Expect an update on the 12th October to see if I have any improvement.

Feel free to share your hair insecurities, if you have any.


  1. Oh my mum has the same problem she doesn't really have length on the sides x


  2. It sucks! Hopefully it grows, i've just checked out your blog love it! Gonna follow you now :) x

  3. I don't see what you mean lol ? What about your edges? But I do remember that pain when I was young , from pulling :(

  4. I was struggling to think of a way to explain this. My edges are extremely short and broken when compared to other areas of my head, even in the picture on the right, you can see that I have some longer strands then all of a sudden we have a patch of short broken hairs, which isn't normal.

    Gosh the pulling was torture! I'm just glad I have the knowledge now, to prevent further damage in the furture :)
