In The Thick Of It
You’ve been growing it out for a while now and you’re somewhere between six and 12 months of hair growth. You’ve conquered early phase awkward stage, and maybe you’ve been experimenting with awkward stage hairstyles. Now, as our boy Andy coined it, you’re in “the thick of it.”
Congratulations are in order. Up to this point you’ve earned some stripes, bursting through the initial challenges presented by awkward stage hair.

But let’s not kid ourselves. There’s still a ways to go before full flow is achieved.
If this is the longest your hair has even been in your life, by now you are asking yourself, “what the hell do I do with it?” Great question.
