July Healthy Hair Goals

I'm a few days late with my hair goals for July, but better late than never! As I stated in my previous post, I'm on a mission to get my natural kinks in curls to its optimum state of healthy! When trying to reach and major goals it is important to break it down into smaller subsections or goals. Below I will be sharing my July 2016 goals.

Ø  Wash hair at least 1x a week
Ø  Deep condition 1x a week (with heat at least every other week)
Ø  Try 3 different styles
Ø  Apply castor to bald spot at least 1x a day and massage for 5 minutes
Ø  (Yup I have a bald spot and will share more on this soon)
Ø  Oil scalp at least 2x a week

My goals this month a pretty basic. I wanted to make sure my goals were simply and achievable. If I do too much too soon I'm setting myself up for failure. These are goals that will work for my lifestyle. Make sure that your goals work for you.  Let me know in the comment section below what a few of your hair goals are this month!

Back Again??

I can't believe it's been over a year and a half since my last post! So much has happened in my life and so much has happened with my hair!! Read below to find out what I have been up to and what is going on with my hair. 

Life Update:
During the last year and a half, I have been adjusting to married life and life with 2 very busy children. I've been learning how to care for my daughter's hair which is a totally different texture and density than mine. I've recently decided to take her to a salon and get her hair braided every 3 weeks. My daughter is extremely tender headed and caring for her hair can be overwhelming for us both. I do plan to learn how to braid so I can start braiding her hair on my own. In the meantime, going to the salon has been working for us. I don't have to style her hair daily and her hair is continuing to thrive. Also during this time, I started a new job and moved. The move was unexpected and stressful! Recently I have made another career move and I'm in the process of relocating to another state. So far this relocation process has been much smoother! I'm looking forward to what the future holds for my family and I. 

Hair Update: 
I have become extremely lazy with caring for my hair. I stopped deep conditioning weekly, moisturizing and sealing like I should, and even trying new styles. I've completely stopped oiling my scalp, pre-pooing, and doing hot oil treatments. Because of this my hair is not as healthy as it should be and I know I'm not retaining the length that I could be. Recently it has been more dry than normal and I have been experiencing hair loss. The hair loss was due more to stress than lack of caring for my hair. My hair just isn't as healthy as I would like it to be. 

I've decided to rededicate myself to my healthy hair journey. I plan to use this blog to share my journey with others as well as use as a reference for myself. I feel that when I was actively blogging in the past, it forced me to be accountable and consistent with my journey. So I'm back like I have never left! In the future I will be sharing product reviews, wash day routines, style attempts, my daughter's "hair journey" and much more! So stay tuned to all of the great things I have in store!
