From knowing past mistakes and failures of your hair journey, you will be able to go back to the drawing board and create a new regimen to follow to continue on to healthy hair.
There are so many goals that can be accomplished within a hair journey, but let’s make this one personal. At the beginning of each year, I would read my diary entries from the previous year to gain inspiration, tips, and a direction I would need to go to set my goals for the new year.
I found that getting a sew-in weave* was the absolute worst experience, flat ironing my hair made me unhappy (lots of heat damage), and not eating healthy/drinking water really took a terrible toll on my hair.
So with knowing those instances and learning of some helpful tips from the hair diary of 2015, I have taken the time to come up with some new goals for my hair. Here are my 5 hair goals to accomplish in 2016 to continue on my healthy hair journey:
No new products
This is going to be so hard for me! I definitely know what works for my hair by simply reading the product label or even using a product on the first try.
However, I enjoy doing product reviews and I love switching up my products for different looks during different seasons.
However, going into my 3rd year of being a naturalista and being further along in my healthy hair journey, I’m buckling down on my products and will use the same regimen that has worked for me for a year.
This will definitely be a challenge for me, but this will save me lots of money from purchasing numerous products that I don’t need.
What exactly are hairspirations? They are hair inspirations of your favorite women and men to follow because of their hair tips, hair styles, and of course their hair.
You may call them your hair idols or hair gurus. No matter where you are in your hair journey, you follow them to continue to keep you inspired about your own hair.
At one point in my hair journey, I had printouts of women with voluminous curls and huge Afros on my wall that would keep me inspired. However, having these women on my wall really didn’t do much for me nor my hair journey.
