I’ve grown my hair through 2 healthy pregnancies over the last 4 years with cuts about once or twice a year. Typically washed twice weekly with natural shampoo and conditioners. Never dyed, always air dried, often worn braided or rolled into a bun. The top of my poneytail is actually 3.25” but that is not an option in the drop down so I adjusted the price accordingly. It is straight with wavy body.
