3. Incorporating healthier food choices
Eating better or healthier seems to be on everyone’s New Year’s list but this can also spill over into a great asset for your tresses. I have long known eating healthy was the best way to get my hair healthy and to grow long while retaining its length. It takes more than food but it takes food more than it takes vitamins or any other supplement on the market.
Inversion method? Girl, please! Eat kale to get your hair to grow quickly! My point is nothing you add to your hair or do to your hair will aid in its health more than eating right.
A good system would be to concentrate on just one meal a day first as a way to eating better. Last year I worked on breakfast. I never eat breakfast except on the weekends but everyone says you must do it. So I started doing green smoothies and within a few months it was a staple for me Monday-Friday.
4. Leaving behind one bad hair habit from 2014.
I know you have one because we all do so just leave that bad boy in 2014 where it rightfully belongs. We do not even have to say what it is. Hec, I know mine and you know yours and the quicker you leave that sucker in your past, the quicker you can forget about it and incorporate a better hair habit.
5. Do routine protein treatments and/or deep conditioning treatments
These are necessary anyway so just doing what needs to be done and staying on top of that is a must. Do you have a planner? Write down when you need to do it as a reminder until it becomes a habit.
Remember that every wash day needs a deep conditioning. Protein treatments can be done monthly or even less but you cannot avoid them completely they are necessary for every regimen.
6. Forgive hair mistakes.
We will make many mistakes in 2015 and not just with our hair. My motto is, mistakes are OK as long as we learn from them so make sure you are not repeating any from 2014 or even 2013 and you will be in good shape this year.
Forgive yourself and move on and remember you are human. Beating yourself up for faltering will only get you down and inhibit your goals and we do not want that. Dust yourself off and get back to your goals you will be breezing right into 2016 all the wiser and with healthier hair.
