Checking In At 1 Year of Hair Growth
El Rubio checks in with his one year hair growth update as much of the world stays home during the COVID-19 pandemic, while we’re all getting glimpses of the places we live in a way we have rarely seen.
Starting in the quiet but no less charming streets of Ocean Beach, we see where 12 months of hair growth has landed El Rubio after donating 14+ inches of hair at The Great Cut, where we broke the Guinness World Records title for the most hair donated to charity.
An Official Unofficial Hair Measurement
Setting out for an accurate update, we considered the best way to measure your hair length. Demonstrating an easy tactic from The Longhairs headquarters, El Rubio calculates and records an official measurement.
The exercise affirms that it depends on where you measure from, while illustrating the importance of getting a measurement before you start growing.
Despite quality growth and generally healthy hair, closer inspection revealed El Rubio was dealing with split ends, but perhaps more alarming was a pattern of considerably different lengths.
If it was all the same length after The Great Cut, why is some hair now noticeably shorter than the rest?
Takeaways From the 1-Year Hair Update
Not only is El Rubio due for a maintenance trim, but perhaps a keratin treatment as well.
His hair update experience also emphasizes the importance of taking care of yourself, meaning a healthy diet, proper exercise and managing your mental health (especially during the coronavirus pandemic).
