Hair Journey

Hair Goals

Hey there people.

Quite some time has passed before I talked about my hair, your hair, our hair. My bad. My hair has been in braids, on and off for the last 4 weeks now, that’s why. I know, not a valid reason and that needs to change.

I’ve been taking good care of my hair for a while now, but without any specific goal. My straightened hair is at neck length right now (the last time I straightened it, 15 weeks ago); I intend to get to shoulder length in the next few months to come. I’ll show you the next time I straighten it, God knows when that will be. That’s my goal.

You know what that means: less and gentle manipulation, sticking to your fruitful regimen, protective styling and most of all, patience.

I’m also ready to start a couple of new things I’ve seen in the hair community, so prepare for all kinds of simple to bizarre things 😀 I also want to change up my products, because I’m almost out of what I have; so instead of buying the same ones, change would be good.

Since we’re here, I might as well share my night time regimen when in braids yes? Why not. So anyway, if dry, I moisturize. My spray bottle has water+glycerin, 3:1. I spray that on my roots, then seal with a little coconut oil on my fingertips and massage that in before tying my satin scarf. I prefer not to spray the ends (in the braids) at night because I think like I’ll wake up with damp braids and those don’t smell so good. I do that in the morning (because they’ll dry) and seal; but I do this probably once a week, or when I remember to do so 😛 That’s all.

What is/are your hair goal(s)? What are you doing to achieve them?

See you on the next one.

  1. So my hair goals from last year was to achieve thick and strong hair. So far its been working. Amla oil does wonders. I treat my hair even if its in braids and I relax only once a year. My efforts are bearing fruit!!!
