Before and after nano ring hair extensions. Split dye hair. Blonde brunette dark brown. Hair growth techniques lee stafford treatment shampoo conditioner. How to grow my hair long fast faster quick quickly.

For as long as I can remember I have been trying to grow my hair in some sort of way. Either simply wanting my hair to be longer, growing out a fringe I had instantly regretted, or just recovering what I could from the 7 years of bleaching my naturally level 3 dark brown hair… 

I would spend HOURS googling ways to make your hair grow faster. From multivitamins to head massaging techniques, plus lots of Lee Stafford Hair Growth Products - I’ve done it all. 

Now I’m not going to say I have stopped completely, I definitely have still been taking Hairburst chewable multivitamins (I bought 6 months worth at the start of lockdown as they were on sale at Superdrug sue me) and I still have a tub of the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment sitting in my bathroom. A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do. We all want a thick mane. 

My addiction, dedication, burning desire for long hair eventually lead me to having nano ring hair extensions - from my research these were the least damaging, as long as you go to a reputable stylist. I ended up having 3 different sets for just over 2 years (the hair extensions can last a year if looked after REALLY well but I heat styled mine quite a lot and nothing beats the feeling of a fresh set of hair). 

By the time I took them out for the final time my natural hair had grown so much I didn’t recognise myself, but of course it still wasn’t long enough for me. 

I hung on to the length for about a year, until recent. I decided to do the thing I had dreadest most for my whole adult life - the BIG chop. The people close to me questioned my decision, they thought I would regret it as I had been so OBSESSED with growing my hair longer but I had made my mind up. 

Let me tell you, it was the most liberating thing I’ve done to my hair. 2020 has thrown a lot of obstacles in my way, in *EVERYONES* way, and I guess my perception of what was important in my life had changed. Instead of wanting the long blonde mane I have been lusting after for years, I simply wanted it to be thick and healthy no matter the length. 

So I dyed my hair as close to my natural colour, and chopped alllllllllll the wispy, ratty, split end, damage OFF. 

I had genuinely forgotten how thick my hair was after the years of bleaching damage. I couldn’t stop touching it for at least a week after it had been chopped off. 

The moral of the story, chop that mop :)
