2011 Resolutions
  • Stop doing "mini-chops", because I'm tired of hair. On a quest to get back to BSL stretched.
  • Use up the products I have. I have enough great/good/works just fine stuff to last throughout the year.
  • Toss/give away what I don't plan to use up.
  • Eat better, drink more water, and take my vitamin supplements consistently.
  • Start hair/life blogging again.

I would like to retain 6 inches of hair by 12/29/2011.
To continue to maintain a low maintenance routine with products available locally.
Hair Type: 4a/b dense, fine, coily hair. Natural 13 years.

Staples: Matrix Biolage Exquisite Oil S & C, aloe vera, almond oil mix, black soap shampoo and bentonite clay.
i want to grow my hair down to mbl by the end of this year
no set backs
grow out my henna
do not color my hair
thicken my hair
get my stash down to staples only
1) Quit Deep Conditioning
2) Find a shampoo that works for me
3) Practice pre-pooing with coconut oil. As of yet, I have no clue how one oils dry hair without tangles and breakage.
Hair type: Kinks and Curls
1. Healthy scalp.
2. Moisturize more often. I notice my hair is much softer when I moisturize more.
3. Take multis and eat more leafy greens.
-Keep hair healthy as possible. Frequent DCing, and just keeping it moisturized.
-Grow my hair to its full potential. (It was long (BSL max) nearly my entire life so I'm not used to it being so short. And with all this shrinkage...*sigh*
-Stop touching/handling it so freaking much.
-Stop obsessing over how much it is (or isn't) growing and just let nature do it's work.

Loving my hair as God intended it to be!!
I just got a hair treatment this year and hope I can maintain and manage them throughout the year. The salon told me that i should have enough nutrients and supplements to maintain it.

Ah...to be a well pampered pootiecat. I can sleep on my owner's lap. Roll over on my back when I want my stomach rubbed. Purr with delight. Suddenly jump off and walk away for no reason. Not respond when I am called. Throw my leg up and lick with intense abandon. Sleep 85% of the time. Hang my head off the couch and view the world upside down.
1. DC weekly
2. Steam treat my hair 3 times a month
3. Find new "attractive" protective styles besides bunning! Attractive being the operative word!
4. Henna 3 times a month (I know that's pushing it!)
5. Drink 8 glasses of water per day.
