So I've been putting off this length check for the longest because I knew the results would not be good. This is a result of leaving a protein treatment in too long. As you may or may not know, too much protein can cause a lot of damage to the hair. I beg you please do not make the same mistake I did. ALWAYS FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. A lot of my hair broke off in the back, and my ends are severely damage. After I took this picture I trimmed about an inch of my ends which puts me back at a little passed armpit length. I don't feel sad about it, because a badly needed a treatment. Going back to the basics.
