I make it no secret I severely dislike my V. I don’t hate V’s as I see nice ones all the time, but right now, I don’t like it on me. Unfortunately my hair grows in a V naturally. Perhaps if I was TBL where the hair is so long it actually looks nice and flowy, but I don’t really like it on me.
Every so often, even with regular dusting, some how that V always comes back. I’ll provide my 3 examples.
My October picture was taken after I had nipped the tip on my ponytail because I hadn’t done it in a while. I knew my hair was growing in a V and wasn’t happy with it. When your cutting or dusting the hair, after, you pull the hair into a low ponytail and pull the scrunchie low (but still enough to hold on to the hair) and carefully and flip the hair over. When you see the tip, you just nip it a little. Not too much. Then when I took an unofficial length check after my most recent roller set, I was actually surprised to see my hair has reached MBL. I guess I can claim it now. But the V had to go.
When I was younger, my mother used to get upset because she would have to constantly trim certain parts of my head because certain areas grew faster than others. I am now experiencing that frustration. I have just come to the conclusion that my hair grows faster where the V forms compared to the other areas.
The struggle is hard!
