Getting Over the Shoulder Length Hump


Your hair is long enough to do a decent ponytail and a lot of updo's! That hair feels good resting on your shoulders, huh? Now you have some options!

What's that you say? Oh you want to wear your hair down? Just need to flat iron it here and know, so it looks extra good for those jealous heffas at your job. I mean, wearing all those protective styles, they didn't think you had ANY hair! Gotta show them, right?

I mean, what's the use of growing all that hair and the time and energy it takes if you can't show it off to the world. No harm, no foul!

But it is harm. If you want SL hair then by all means, go for it. But if you, like me, want to get past SL to APL (arm-pit length) you must protective style even more at this stage. Protective style as if your life depended upon it!

Your hair is at the stage where it is constantly rubbing against your clothes. It is very, very likely to break off if you don''t keep your hair off of your shoulders! Moisturize and protective styling is your main thing now...oh and put those blowdryers and curling irons away. Sure, you should get a few passes for special occasions. Dinners, weddings, parties, purposely running into that ex of yours, etc. Going to work, grocery store, coffee shop, etc. is not an excuse!

With some hard work, you should make it past this style no later than 9-12 months. (That depends on the amount of inches you can grow each month and how tall you are, etc.) For me, APL is just four inches away while BSL is eight inches. (Well now I'm 3.75 inches away)

Congratulations on making SL but the hard part is ahead of you. Surveys have been done on this topic and women stated overwhelmingly that SL-APL was the hardest.

But it doesn't have to be....

Your hair is long enough for an updo...wear them.
