My MAIN Hair Goal For 2016! - What's Yours?Tuesday, January 12, 2016
Setting a hair goal for the year is extremely important but also incorporating the right steps to take you to the next level is vital! My goal this year is to keep things super simple and focus on regrowing my edges (moreso the right side, its a tad bit weaker)...yup that's right! Just my edges and maintaining the overall health of my hair - of course!
Length is not my main focus because I've learned that while maintaining healthy hair, length will always come. No need to fixate on it. Besides, I have no real desire to go past MBL. I've been MBL for years and it's my sweet spot :)
As for my edges, I plan on relaxing them every other relaxer to ensure they remain strong and full. I relax 4x/year. Relaxing my edges only 2x/year will be a challenge but the health of my hair is more important for obvious reasons. I love me some slick edges.
When I do plan on relaxing, my plan is to only apply the relaxer onto my hairline + edges at the very end - no smoothing! I believe that over the years excessive smoothing during the relaxing process and bunning may have attributed to my edges (the right side) becoming thinner. Once I pair my "relaxing my edges only 2x/year" regimen with loose bunning, I should be on the right track :)
So here are the mini changes I'll be making:
- Massage my edges and hairline 2-3x/week with Jamaican Black Castor Oil
- Wear loose protective styles
- Relax my edges every other relaxer (2x/year)
Since joining the Castor Oil Challenge part 10 on Hairlista.com, I've noticed a huge improvement and it seems to be filling in well. I'm going to continue my Castor oil regimen by applying my JBCO 2-3x/week followed by a light massage. I just have to be consistent, put in the work and be patient.
What are your 2016 Hair Plans? Do you have a specific goal in mind? How do you plan on getting there?
