I've been growing my hair out since 2000 and got a lot of advice from this board back in 2000-2004. I got busy and stopped hanging around this board but still have wavy long hair. Unfortunately it has never gotten past my shoulders in the back and the top barely gets to a ponytail holder and I just shaved the sides because they would only get to a fuzzy 2 inches and looked all strange.
So, I've been wondering for years why my hair is so brittle and seems to break early. I started thinking to how I've been wearing my hair at work and maybe this is it. I would let it dry and then brush it as straight as possible (I have wavy hair) and pull it back to a ponytail holder that was all elastic. Then I would spray my head/hair with water and then use a water based hair gel to keep it that way.
So would wetting hair in a ponytail holder and then letting it dry that way make it break? I have started wearing it down at work now and people I've worked with for years didn't know I had locks!!
