2013 Hair Goals

Lets start off by saying Happy New Year ! 2012 is gone and now we begin our journey to 2013

I can say overall 2012 was a good year for my hair I had some mishaps from my self trimming and getting cuts multiple times, but I still had some good with reaching past bra strap length and actually saying that my hair is pretty healthy for it being colored treated. 2012 was great to my hair in my opinion. So now it's time to start my 2013 hair goals that I know I can achieve:

1. Maintaining the health of my hair
Now that I have achieved almost healthy hair I need to keep up with it and make sure it does not revert. I wasn't using heat that often maybe every two months are so and I was frequently co washing my hair which I believe is what helped my hair.

2. Less Trimming ! I need to stay away from scissors
Reason I'm not at BSL is because of being scissor happy. I always felt the need to cut my hair for some reason even if it didn't need a trim. So this year I am only going to do the Search and Destroy method unless a cut is absolutely necessary. But that's what I'm planning to stick to for at least half the year to see how it works for me.

3. Continue with my protective styles
Literally all year I have had my hair in a bun, well almost all year, curly buns I preferred. Which is basically co washed hair or braid outs in a bun. That was always my go to hair style. This year would be weaves and when that's taken out my buns lol.

4. My biggest goal reaching waist length if possible
And if not full MBL

I am looking forward to seeing what 2013 has in store for me and my hair journey. I'm hoping its positive! So happy new year/hair journey !!!!

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…
