Well after around 20 years, my long damaged hair is gone (by my own hand) and it's all 2 inches around my head now. I'm not happy about it but I couldn't get my hair past my shoulders and hopefully if I can keep my hair healthy it will since I now know what split ends look like (mine weren't at the ends but had traveled at least 6 inches of my 12 inch length.
My intention is to grow it out again as I've already been through the awkward phase twice and know better how to deal with things without damaging my hair again. This time next year it should be near my shoulders when wet but my hair is wavy and curls a lot when long so it won't look that long till later in 2020.
So, here's my question. I looked at a lot of youtube videos about how to identify split ends and cut them. However, the best strategy is to keep your hair healthy so that spit ends are minimized-no heat tools, keep your hair conditioned and oiled. The videos I watched the people had smooth hair which I didn't have. Now I was thinking that my hair is just different but maybe healthy hair should be smooth.
Is smooth hair an indication of a healthy head of hair?
