My hair broke off but I'm taking care of it now, I ultimately lost six inches and it was nearly a foot long before. How long do you think it will take for it to grow back?

I know your pain. I suffered from some breakage in the middle of my head and I’m just now recovering. I can’t estimate how long it’ll take for your hair to grow back. I hope that it takes about 6-9 months with consistent care. Keep your hair moisturized and in protective styles and you should be fine. Good luck!

Hi, I'm wearing my natural hair to school tomorrow, and I'm kinda nervous at the reaction my peers will give me. I've posted pictures on IG with my natural hair,and people seem to like it but I'm still nervous. Any advice? I'm just wearing a wash n go.

Girl, I’m sure you’ll look fabulous tomorrow. Don’t worry what others say, their opinions don’t pay your bills and they never will. Have a great day tomorrow and good luck with that wash n go, unfortunately they never work out for me. Lol.

Hi! Love your blog this is exactly what I was looking for(: I have a question about dying natural hair. I've always wanted to go blonde but I naturally have dark brown hair. Would it be better to just have a blonde sew in or how can you safely do it

Honestly, a blonde sew in would be the safest way to achieve the color. Bleaching any hair can be risky but African American hair is even more susceptible to breakage. You’d have to work extra hard to keep your hair moisturized… Good luck and let me know what you decide!

I got a request to post more about myself and my hair so I’ll try to oblige.
In honor of #ThrowbackThursday I’d like to post a picture of myself and some friends from a few years ago… That’s me in the bottom left corner (clenching my pearls, lol). I’m not sure which #naturalhairstyle I was inspired by but I thought I was too cute with my slick front and blowed out pinup style. Ahhhh the memories…

Hello Alex, I'm mixed. My hair has two or three textures to it. The front of my hair is completely straight at it's natural state, the middle of my hair is just fuzzy like has no real coordination, and the rest of my head is pretty tight curls. I love my hair as it is, and wouldn't trade it for the world, but I wish my whole head had these tight curls like the majority of my head does. Is there any products you recommend for excessive curliness? I could also send you pictures

Hey there!

Yes, please send me photos so I could see your hair type and provide personalized product suggestions. If you wish to remain anonymous to blog readers just email me pictures of your hair only at WhatAlexWrites.com. If I can’t give good suggestions, I’ll share the picture with followers to see if they can help!

Have a great one!

I stopped perming(relaxing) my hair about 2 years ago, but I still were weaves, does this make me natural? I'm confused. I want to be able to take care of my hair but I honestly don't know how? I want my hair to grow & be able to let it free & be comfortable and not insecure. So I guess my question is what should I do with my hair? I'm college & can't really afford a stylist or whatever to do my hair. Thanks in advance & for having a kickass blog for girls like me. :) Have a good day/night!

Hey chica!

First off, thanks a bunch for reading the blog and I appreciate you reaching out to me for assistance. I know exactly how you feel. I remember when I first started experimenting with natural styles… It was struggle galore! Hopefully my suggestions help make the transition easier for you.

Wearing weave doesn’t mean your hair isn’t natural, in fact it’s a pretty good protective style as long as you have them installed properly. I believe the only way to be comfortable styling your hair and letting it be free is to take the Nike approach. Just do it!

I’m not sure how long your hair is, but I’d suggest removing the weave and consider testing out some products. Try twist outs, braid outs and bantu knot outs and do pin up hairstyles until you’ve had enough growth to feel comfortable wearing it out. You can even do different styles with twists and that’d be super cute as well. On the other hand, if your hair is short or still has relaxed ends that you need to get rid of then you should spend a little money getting it professionally cut just to start you off on your natural journey. I know you’re in college and spending money isn’t always easy, but one visit will be well worth it especially if the stylist hooks you up with a dope cut. (I’ve been loving tapered cuts lately…)

Hope this helps!
