Lovin’ My Long Hair.

Here’s another self-affirmation post: I love my long hair!

Since I’ve decided to make it a point to affirm myself every now and then, I am taking the time to look at what I love about myself, whether on the inside or out. For today, it’s the out that I will look at.

As I said, I love my long hair. This is the longest it’s ever been, and more than just being long, it finally has a nice, healthy sheen to it. Growing up I used to have terrible hair. When I say terrible, I mean it! It was kinky, matted and quite coarse. It was so bad I couldn’t let my hair hang loose. I’d always have to have it in a bun or cut really short. It was the kind of hair that one would probably have resembled an afro or looked good in those little braids that a lot of African American children have. The problem is, while I do like those looks, here in the Philippines it wouldn’t sit well, mainly because of the kind of weather we have.

For a long time, I had struggled with hair issues. Now, I finally got the kind of  hair I like. The only thing I worry about, however, is the fact that when I brush my hair, I seem to have so much falling hair. This kind of worries me because I have a family history of baldness. My dad, no matter what kind of hair loss treatment for men he had tried, still ended up with a balding head. Add that to the fact that my mom says I take after him a lot!

So, to care for my hair, I try my best to keep it healthy and conditioned well.  I do monthly deep conditioning treatments and when I have the extra money, I get a hot oil treatment as well. I also keep my hair tied up or covered whenever I am under the sun for prolonged periods of time and when possible, I try not to shampoo too often, since this dries up hair (or so they say). One thing I can’t help but do, however, is brush my hair when I come out of the shower. They say this is quite bad as it leads to split ends and that instead of brushing, I should just comb it. So far, I can’t get myself to do that!

    I love my long hair too, I also have a long hair, but I cut it a little short last February to get rid of some split ends. I know it will grow again. hehe

    I usually wear my hair shoulder length although I want it really short now that it’s so hot. Long hair doesn’t really suit me coz I have “buhaghag hair”.
