I have been growing out this beautiful healthy mane for what will be 5 years on June 2019. I hate to see it go, it has been such a big part of my personality. I live a very healthy lifestyle, I exercise 5 days a week and eat lots of fruits veggies and whole foods. I have taken great care of my hair always using top quality shampoos/conditioners. I wash it about 1-2 times a week. Has never been treated with heat; no straightening or curling. Also has never been dyed. Thanks.
