Y’all know I’ve been working on growing my hair to Rapunzel-like lengths for quite some time. My hair was annoying me so much that I got extensions put in over the summer! Now it’s finally to a length that I’m really happy with, but I didn’t get there by myself. I wish I could say otherwise, but I had a lot of help along the way from hair growth products.
