Hair Plans

I just wanted to share with you my hair plans for the next 2 months. I've been doing tons of research and prepping to reach my hair goals this year. Just to refresh your memory on my hair goals this year I added the list below.

1. Retain length
2. Stick to regimen
3. Aim for thickness
4. Learn and perfect 5 new styles

Well what I have planned will hopefully help me reach several goals. First I plan on stretching my relaxers for 16 weeks. Stretching a relaxer means increasing the amount of time between relaxing your hair. It has several benefits which I will share in a later post. I graduate from college in May and I plan on relaxing around that time. To stretch I have been creating a list of tips I will use during my stretch. I again will share this in a future post. The purpose of this post is to give you very basic layout of my plans. I promise to elaborate in future posts.

My second plan is to transition to texlax hair. My hair is pretty fine so when I relax bone straight it makes my hair look limp and thin! I have cut layers in my hair in the past to increase thickness, but I have now grown them out. I want my hair to be thick, not just appear thick. I will have several long stretches where I will transition. I will slowly trim off the relaxed ends when I have either grown tired of taking care of three textures, or have grown my texlax hair to a length I am satisfied with.

Piggy backing off my last point, I plan to self relax. I'm not afraid to self relax. I have done it for YEARS and I have never had a problem. I have also relaxed others' hair so I'm very confident in my ability. Right now the plan is to stick with the Mizani Butter Blends line, That is what I have been using for the pass 5 years or so and my hair loves it. I'm thinking of using the mild relaxer instead of the normal.

Lastly I will be making a YouTube channel in the future. I'm not sure how soon this will be, but it is definitely a goal of mine. Don't worry, you all will be one of the first to know.

So this is my layout for reaching my hair goals this year! If you have any suggestions, questions, or comments leave them below! HHG!!


  1. Thanks for keeping us posted. I'm considering transitionig to texlaxed hair as well for the same reasons.

    I also need to stick to a regimen. I've been on my journey for years and still can't seem to keep my regimen the same longer than 6 mos. Perhaps that should be my next challenge.

  2. You have a solid plan for transitioning to texlaxed. Dealing with three textures is no fun AT ALL. I hate it. I can't wait to snip off my relaxed ends, but I have many many more months to go.
