2011 Natural Hair Resolutions

What are your hair goals or hair resolutions for 2011?

My goals:

1. Meet and obtain healthy stretched BSL hair.
2. Step my style game up. I cannot rock 2ST every week that is just lame.
3. Nurture my hair from the inside out by eating right, supplementing if necessary and drinking plenty of water.

I am only in month 5 of my transition so my hair goals are somewhat the same as they were last yr. Lol.

I am planning on:
1) Continuing to focus on healthy hair vs length
although I am hoping to at least be apl by the end
of my first yr in July (I am currently ab an inch or 2
past my shoulders).

2) Continue w/my religious hair regimen (weekly co-
washes, dt, pt, acv rinses, etc.)

3) Although I know you said hair goals, I am planning
on maintaining my workout schedule/instituting &
maintaining a healthy eating lifestyle that I re-started
in December so that I can finally lose all of the
weight I gained w/my pregnancy. Besides a healthy
lifestyle will result in a healthier mind, soul, body &

Happy New Yr to you all and good luck on all your resolutions!
Hair Type: A head full of THICK, normal porosity curls/coils that I am TOTALLY in LUV with!
(Transitioned for 16 & 1/2 months)

Loving: MC LI Condish, Raw shea butter, Coconut & Grapeseed Oil, SM raw shea butter shampoo,HEHH Conditioner, Braggs ACV & Egg, Mayo & EVOO PT's

Those are all great goals. And I totally agree with you on healthy lifestyle = healthy mind+body+soul+hair

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
- Take my time detangling better.
- Remember to moisturize and seal my hair at least every other day.
- Leave my scissors alone! (I see straight ends pop up randomly and I just snip, snip, snip. I'm afraid if I ever straighten my hair out that my hair will be lopsided.)
- Stop being such a PJ. So far I definitely haven't stuck to this (I brought four new products today).
- Drink more water (8 glasses would be ideal), I drink water now . . just not enough.
- Continue with my cardio regimen.

Mine is very simple:

Cut back on spending
Reach Booty cheek length by 2014 (at APL now)
Drink more water
Pray more
Relax more
Try Ayurvedic blends and stick with companies like Qhemet Biologics.
Last year I wanted my hair to grow to APL now I think I do not care. I finally have a group of products and a regimen that work well for me. Perhaps I have found peace with my hair :-)

I think this year I would like to learn new styling techniques, like flat twists and how to braid my own hair.

To reduce my product purchasing and to sell trade or give away products that I have which do not work for me. As opposed to me trying to find away to get it to work.

Daily scalp massages. I know people say they work for hair growth but personally it really helps me unwind from my daily life drama and it feels sooo good!

~Get healthy by eating better, sleeping better and exercising. Take vitamins. I need to be disciplined in drinking more water (healthy hair starts from within)
~Daily scalp massages (I'm such a slacker.SMH)
~Keep split ends at bay SOMEWAY SOMEHOW
~Obtain SL by the end of the year. (I'm starting fresh with a TWA this year and I'm on a mission to retain ALL of my length. I'm not cutting. NOT. Cutting. Again)
~Use up products that are "eh" and only repurchase things that really WORK for me.
~Stick to protective styling for a WHILE (with small breaks in between of course)
~Apply my sulfur mix every night (I think it's helping my scalp )
~mail my steamer to my apartment and USE IT. Also, deep condition every week
