I plan on doing a heat training regimen once my hair grow out a bit more. Ive been natural for what will be 2 years coming up in April 2013. But, I recently big chopped 3 weeks ago due to damage from the removal of baby locs from September but mostly due to the 90% shrinkage factor of my fine 4b hair. After my hair hit about 8 inches, the ssks and tangles reigned due to the extreme shrinkage and the inevitable coils that appeared at the end of my twists and braids which causes a wash n go factor for my texture= no bueno. Because of this I have decided to heat train once I hit shoulder length. I have tried every stretch method to all things natural but still have to chop off progress. This is my last hope and if this doesn't do it, then Ill try to have the healthiest 8 inches that I can.
But I have to say due to my new regimen my natural hair has not been healthier, but it is only 2 1/2 inches so we'll see in time. :)
Question: How will one go by in heat training hair that's my length (2 1/2)? Would you recommend it?
