It’s nearing the time of year when we start to review our achievements from the current year and prepare to make fresh goals for the upcoming new year.
We set goals for many different areas of our lives. Hair is an area that has gotten a lot of attention in the past few years. Ladies are paying closer attention to their hair. That is mainly because we now have so much information at our fingertips. We are better informed which allows us to take more control of our hair and beauty.
Because of this information and attention, hair has also managed to find its way onto nearly everyone’s goals list. Resolutions now include hair growth goals, relaxer stretching goals and commitments to deep condition regularly. It has really become a thing.
And like all goals, the key to achieving your 2017 hair goals is to be realistic and remain committed and consistent. Cutting corners that no one else sees is ok, but remember, your hair knows. It knows. So, let’s agree to see things through. Let’s breakdown how to set realistic hair goals for 2017
Inspiration is fleeting. Stay focused on the WHY
We are all pumped in December. This can even last into January and February, for many. The truth, however, is that the spark to leads to setting a resolution is 9 times out of 10 born from inspiration. We see some amazing hair in a magazine spread.
Or the woman in front of us in line at the grocery store gives us hair envy. Maybe it’s the #tbt Instagram picture you posted that has you reminiscing about how great your hair once was. Who knows? What I do know is that inspiration is fleeting. It’s like any other emotion. It comes and goes.
In order to reach your hair goals, you have to figure out a way to stay focused and committed. The best way to remain on track is to keep the why in mind. When you set your hair goal, make sure there is a solid reason behind why you’re wanting to reach that place with your hair.
Reviewing the why will get you through those times when you really just want to go straight to bed instead of oiling your scalp and properly wrapping your hair up for the night.
