So washed and blow-dried my hair yesterday and I it looks like the back of my hair when stretched /pulled with my fingers is more in the way of an inch away from APL rather than the 2 inches it felt like it was a while ago. I think after my September relaxer I will be only an inch away from APL without pulling with my fingers (depending on how much of a trim I need), which means I’m actually getting close so can stop feeling like APL is something only other people achieve.
I was reading a ‘From shoulder length to APL’ thread on LHCF (longhaircareforum.com) yesterday and someone on the thread mentioned that they were 4 inches away from APL and that they felt like they would never get there– it did make me suddenly realise I’m a lot closer to getting there than I think, it is not as much of a pipe dream as it originally was.
I lost a bit more than I lose with my weekly washes. yesterday, but given that I last washed my hair at 2 and a half weeks post it makes sense that there would be more than usual.
