Hair Goals For 2012 (Late Post)

I made a decent list of my goals that I want to achieve for this year and I'm also doing monthly challeneges just to make my journey abit more interesting and I know a month isn't long enough to see results in anything but there would be times where I would extend it to two months.

My Goals:
1. Stick to my products! I'm always going out buying new products and instantly adding them into my hair. Doing this doesn't help me figure out what my hair needs or wants. Just leaves me a big mess on trying to figure out what went wrong or what was good.

2. Learn to love my curls I have a love - hate relationship with them. Its just so complicated dealing with my hair being that its so thick and curly, but I do love my curls.

3.Try to do more protective styles. To be honest I don't even understand what protective styling is or even how what styles you can use. All I know is putting in a weave and I'm on the fence of doing that (Might try it out)

4. I don't have a set goal on how long I want my hair to be I just want it to have a nice amount of length maybe around june. But I do want overall health within 3 months (If thats possible)

5. I do want to take a vitamin such as biotin

6. Keep my ends trimmed I am thinking about going to get them cut every 4-5 months (if my ends do need to but trim)

7. Also need to have PATIENCE. I lack in that department. I really need to have patience with my hair being that I get fed up rather quickly when my hair doesn't follow with what I want it to do lol.

8.Search for a great hair styler that can maintain my braidout and twist. Need a product that can hold my curls and maintain them through out the day.Also moisturize them, have defined curls and also be frizz fee.

MY CHALLENGE FOR FEBRUARY- Don't use NO HEAT! I want to embrace my curls. Find styles for them and learn how to manage second day hair.

So I Made Waist Length

I made my long term goal! I'm finally waist length. I have been on a hair journey for a very long time and through so many trial and errors I found what helped me. My growth has definitely come from protective styling. I'm either doing a sew in and if not that my hair was always in a bun. Also having a simple hair routine is key! Not only that but keeping up with my ends. I plan to get my ends lightly trimmed but the only person I trust is so far from me but very soon I will get one. I might try to do a new hair goal of hip length but honestly not sure having long hair can kind of be annoying, but I'm not complaining I love my current length. 

Am I Protein Sensitive ?

I had recently purchased Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor and The Keratin & Green Tea leave in. I felt that my hair was in desperate need of some protein being that it was breaking a lot and because I thought my hair was going through moisture overload. Every time I washed it, my hair will feel way to mushy and soft. So today I decided to try the products and my results weren’t so good. This is what I did :
Shampoo with my Neutrogena Triple Moisture & then condition with the Aphogee conditioner. On the bottle it says to either leave it on for 2 or 5 minutes. I don’t know how long I left it in being that I was in the shower, but I do know that I didn’t leave in on for long because I didn’t know the time and I was to nervous having this product in my hair. I want to say it had to be at least 4 minutes that it was in my hair. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt AMAZING! My hair felt so strong and thick. I was just blown away at how good my hair felt. Usually my hair feels like mush an…

Wash Day

[1] Detangled hair & shampooed in four sections with ORS Aloe Shampoo. I feel that this shampooed is a great shampoo especially to remove build up.
[2] Deep condition with Creme of Nature Moisture Milk Masque. I recently purchased this deep conditioner and wanted to see how well it worked on freshly washed hair. I applied it to my four sections starting from tip working my way up to the root. I put on two plastic caps and left it on for 40 minutes while I did some house cleaning. Rinsing the product out it was nothing impressing. My hair looked really shiny and moisturized, hair detangled rather easily but I detangled prior. First impression it did not wow me.
[3] Leave in of choice was Chi Keratin mist because my hair has been shedding like crazy and Creme of Nature 7-in-1
[4] I also recently purchased Creme of Nature Foaming Lotion. I never used a foaming lotion my initial reason of purchasing this was to do a flexi rod set but I decided to skip that and just braid my hair. I did t…
