Archived Journey Through the Lengths: 1-2 inches
STYLING OPTIONS AT THIS LENGTH
There are some people who are very experimental at this length. I’ve seen pictures of tiny two-strand twists and comb coils achieved at this short length. I was not very experimental. At this length, the wash-n-go was my best friend.
MY HAIR ROUTINE AT THIS LENGTH
My hair routine was still fairly simple, however dryness became an issue at this length (see below). I continued with the no-poos in the beginning, but discovered that my hair was not responding well to the daily no-poos. I eventually switched to no-pooing every two days or so. I continued experimenting with different moisture products and clarifying techniques in hopes of conquering the dryness. I discovered ACV Rinses at this length. I did those whenever my scalp was itchy (they worked well at this length). To conquer dryness, I sprayed Sta-Sof-Fro on my hair at night (see below). I used this approximately every other day.
MY HAIR ISSUES AT THIS LENGTH
Hair dryness and roughness was very noticeable at this length. I tried a lot of products at this time. The only product that worked for me was Sta-Sof-Fro (for extra dry hair). I sprayed this on at night before bed, tied my hair up and discovered very soft hair in the morning. Also, cutting my no-poos down to every two days helped a lot.
