Journey, not the Steve Perry kind

 Hair: If you believe (and stick with it), it will grow.
So you’ve always wanted to grow your hair. Wishes, prayers, sacrifices and maybe even a little voodoo or witchcraft still haven’t gotten you what you want. Growing your hair should not be an odyssey…a long, wandering, arduous, very eventful journey. It is, however, more like an expedition – a journey organized for a particular purpose.  Now I realize the word expedition conjures up  images of Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones or maybe Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft leaping from trees and cliffs, running through the jungle to escape capture from a tribe of cannibals or digging through tunnels to find long-lost treasure. Although Indiana Jones and Lara Croft accomplished what they set out to do, not all thrill seekers get the job done. Hearts can and will be broken; legs for that matter can and will be broken. Needless to say, there is no quick fix. If you feel like this is what you’ve been “growing” through (wink) when it comes to your hair, I apologize in advance. Growing your hair should never be that difficult.
So what does this mean? It means, it may take you two weeks, two months or two years to get what you want depending on what your goal is. However, if your hair story is an odyssey, you’ve done or you’re doing something wrong. Ten years to grow your hair long is too long. That’s just my opinion.
Embarking on a hair journey is more a mental journey than it is a physical one. Granted, the purpose of most people’s  Hair Growth Journey is to see growth. They want growth  and it has to be quick and miraculous. Not only must the hair be long but it must be strong, silky and voluminous.  I’ve found that growing my hair has been one big mind game. Why? Because I’ve had to question everything I was taught about hair, everything I observed growing up and every wrong thing I’ve done to my own hair. If you’re serious about doing this then you need to throw out the broken record in your head and question yourself every time you put anything on your hair (or in your scalp).
It sounds crazy. You may even feel a little crazy at times but you will learn so much about your hair.
