I joined this site in order to help further my natural hair journey. I'm currently stuck at a road block and need assistance. ever since I was nine, after my mom cut my hair, my hair never seemed to grow pass the top of my shoulder. Now I am fourteen and my hair still hasn't moved. It's not that I don't think my hair won't grow, it's just that I can't figure out the solution to my breakage problem and retaining length problem. My mom's hair is straight, so she hasn't been much help, and my family lives across the country so it's hard for me to get insights from them. So if anyone out there can give me some tips and solutions, I would VERY much appreciate that!
