7 Ways You Can Celebrate a Milestone in Your Hair Journey

Natural hair womanSimplify Your Regimen

Let’s face it, there can be quite a bit of effort and time invested in tailoring a regimen to your hair. Often at the beginning of the healthy hair journey you want to include everything because you don’t know your hair well enough yet.

After sticking to it for a year or so you may find that you can simplify it a bit so things can be easier. The simpler your regimen the better the chance that it will work effectively since you won’t be stressed out trying to keep up with the number of steps involved.

Do a Luxurious Treatment

There are no shortage of treatments you can try. Whether you need moisture or protein at the time of your milestone, we have several recipes for you right here as well. You may want to experiment with Cassia Obovata, or a chocolate mask, whatever your choice as long as it benefits you and ties into your schedule go for it!

Splurge on Some Good Tools or Products

No doubt the top brands of products you hear about and the tools can cost a small fortune. Consider it an investment to yourself and your dedication to your hair journey and get you some products or tools or both! (BTW if any of you know of any sites that sell good stainless steel scissors let a sista’ know in the comments below.)


Even if you are into whipping up your own stuff I am sure you would much rather the authentic ingredients like raw Shea butter straight from Africa.

Perhaps you can only afford one thing, it doesn’t matter. The important thing is the feeling you will get when you finally acquire that thing that’s gonna help whip your hair into the chic, edgy dos that you love.

Get Some Accessories

Sometimes all you need is a strategically placed bow for that wow factor. You can seek out some spunky looking bows, headbands and scarves.

Then again, who says those are the only kinds of accessories? Jewelry does wonders for transforming a look. Just think about it: a fierce fro can be even more ‘frotastic’ with bold colored or brass hoops. Do what works for you. 🙂

About Marsha Buchanan


As a Jamaican girl raised in a devout church family headed by my mother, I have always had my natural hair, no chemical processing. After years of mistreating it , often ignorant of that fact, I began my healthy hair journey in January 2013 in fact, I have seen to it that my entire household falls in line where this is concerned. When I am not poring over some hair blog or forum I spend my time teaching English to rowdy high school students (ok maybe I have some little sweethearts in the mix), mothering the most adorable two year old on this globe, or rushing to meet the deadline for a writing project on Elance. In my spare time I enjoy a stroll along the beach with my doting husband.

    I see so many articles with black long hair. My hair does not grow. White people hair grows. The inference is black hair can’t grow it’s ugly I wish we had nice silky hair like whites I am sure I would have long hair by now. But this horrible black hair I hate it I wish I had silky smooth long hair . I am just stuck in this ugly body and hair that I hate so much!!!!!
