long hair vs healthy hair

i constantly see girls fanning over long hair. i used to be one of them. when I was younger my hair was really long and healthy, so as I got older after the eczema kicked in, I just wanted my long hair back. I quickly understood that long hair was a bonus, but healthy hair was the goal. You see, hair naturally grows. Everyone’s does. The way to see the growth is if you r hair is healthy and you have a high length retention rate. That means your shedding is to a minimum and you can see your hair growing after a few weeks. I want to discuss a little bit more when you need to start focusing on health instead of length.

  • Benefits of Healthy Hair
    • You will see a drastic change in your ability to hold a style
    • lots of compliments
    • it will grow super fast
      • when it grows it will look nice
  • Benefits of Long Hair
    • It’s long
    • can possibly be styled in cute styles (if it is damage free)
    • lots of compliments

As you can see by this short list, long hair really is just long. Long hair is often synonymous with beauty, but it’s not always beautiful. Tons of people have long hair whose hair looks a hot mess. Tons of people have short, healthy hair cuts. Short is a good thing as long as it’s healthy. I think a short bob or pixie cut is adorable, and can allow your hair to grow back healthier than ever. That’s what happened to my mom. Her hair used to be really short (she had it shaved short for a portion of my childhood, then she grew it out, then she got a bob, and now it’s longer). After her bob, her hair grew back super healthy and is super cute. Cuts are a good thing! Just like trims are (one of the most important things you can do is get trims regularly it will change your hair for the better).

At the end of the day, it’s just hair. Just like you would for your body, mind and spirit, focus on your (hair) health!
