"(contd question) so please what should i do to ensure that it grows and is protected as it is growing (with the ban on hair extensions in my school)”
Thats quite tricky. If your hair is only an inch, there isnt much you can do but let it grow beautifully.
You hair is short, the easiest stage of your growth. Trust me, iv been there. All you need to do is:
1. Condition your hair. No more than 2/3 times a week.
2. Apply your products using the LOC Method. On wet hair, apply your oil then your cream or leave-in conditioner.
3. Just ensure your hair is moisturized and it will grow.
4. You dont need to worry about protection, its short and needs to grow. Dont run to anything that will stress it. Like braids.
Your hair is at its baby stage. You want to nuture it beautifully. Dont be in a panic to hide it or to change it. Let it be. That is the best advice I will give you. LET IT GROW WITH ITSELF. JUST YOUR HAIR ON ITS OWN.
Enjoy your hair. Embrace its length. The moment you start looking of ways to alter it when it cant do much, you will kill your hair and forget you want healthy hair.
Its an inch now, in a few months it will grow longer and then you can do any style - twist outs, cornrows, flat twists, finger coils, bantu knots etc.
With an inch, I would suggest using curl defining creams to help show off your curls. Using gels to style it. Brushing it to style etc. These a simple beautiful styles you could try. OR like me, just have your wash-n-go.
Please, dont be in a rush. I miss my hair at your length. It was beautiful and I truly embraced my beauty with it. So enjoy yours.
Hope this helps you.
Have a fab day.
