And who's to say they don't have "long hair" anyway? Hair extensions doesn't equal bald/short hair.

Also, it's not other people's hair once they decide to chop it off, and have it sold. It belongs to whoever buys it.

I feel just the same without it. I can go months without another install.


I love hair extensions, because they give me the freedom to do whatever I want without worrying about heat damage to my own hair.

It also makes it easy to switch up looks.


I can be kinky curly one day, blonde ombre another day, and waves the next day.

Sometimes all these superficial enhancements make me feel like a robot.

I have a friend, she has very long hair, almost reaches her butt, never uses any products, only cheap shampoo. No conditioner. Superhealthy and shiny hair. Not due to great care - just awesome genetics.
I have curly hair, somewhere between 3a and 3b, that is super fine. No one believes it but the vast majority of people with curly hair have extremely fine hair as well. That is why as a group we typically have a hard time growing out our hair, especially if we process.

BUT, even those of us with superfine hair CAN grow out our hair. We have to stop processing (does your mom color her hair in anyway?) and applying heat (no iron, no blow dryer, etc, just air drying) and switch to sulfate free products. If your mothers hair still "breaks" she should see a doctor because that is indicative of a deficiency of some kind.

If you take good care of your hair, it starts to grow very quickly. My hair grows about an inch a month.

I disagree IMO its just genetics nothing more. Some people have bad skin, others bad hair & others weight issues despite eating healthy.

IMO her mother seems to just have bad hair. I have bad nails. I have to go to the moon & back for my nails to grow. It happens.

Who cares what your opinion is when we have facts?

Low vitamin c, anemia, low copper, etc are all much more likely than something like Sabrina's syndrome or trichothiodystrophy (two of only a handful of known causes of genetically brittle hair) which have even more serious symptoms.
