The Sparkling One is going to let you in on a dream she's had ever since she was about . . . oh . . . twenty or so.
I have always wanted to have super-long hair.
Not just 'long enough to braid' not just 'reaches past my shoulder blades' . . . . I mean super-long hair. Waist length at the very minimum. Unfortunately I've also wished my hair was red and started dying it. I never really got past my shoulders without it breaking off or splitting, etc. Because apparently you can dye your hair or have really long hair, not both.
So I have started over! To go with my dream of running away to sea, I am now taking steps to encourage my hair to grow to it's terminal length!

I chopped off every inch that ever felt a chemical. The Sparkling One is a natural, dirty blonde. So I only brush with boar bristle brushes now (the paddle type) to encourage the spread of my hair's natural oils. I do a coconut oil mask every week. To repair damage.
. . . . . my hair hair feels so friggin' oily!!!! I haven't seen my curls in weeks! I don't even have long hair and I have long hair problems! But patience . . . patience. Must have patience for length. Maybe if I just keep it braided for the next year or so . . .
