Here's another goal. I want to cut down on styling time while still maintaining good style.
Grow and retain at least 3 -6 inches of healthy hair. I think my hair will look perfect with 3-6 more inches. I always picture/imagine it when I'm looking at my hair . Continue to baby my ends and make sure they are moisturized, sealed, and tucked away at least half of the time. Continue to avoid direct heat or keep it to a very minimum ( just for micro trims or once a month or less). Continue to avoid hair dye and just keep on doing what I've been doing. I'm glad that I found oil rinses because they have been great with retaining length, moisturizing my ends, detangling my ends, and keeping my hair healthy.
I washed my hair last night and it airdried overnight. Now all I have to do is moisturize and redo my wig braids
I've already reached my first mini milestone of "Whip" length! :reddancer: this month.
My next goal is to grow it to Hip Length. And then every 2 to 3 months I'm going to trim off an inch to help thicken up my hemline until I have a nice and fuller looking U-shape
I should be done with growing out my hair in about 2 months and then I'll be in maintenence mode. I've been waiting on this since 2011!
I worked 14 hours today so I didn't moisturize, massage or anything. Tomorrow after work I will massage in some liquid gold oil and moisturize my ends.
- Keeping my ends constantly moisturized with lots of water-based products.Once my ends are moisturized, detangling becomes a breeze which means more retention.
- Not trimming. I'm on a no trim challenge and hope to not trim until 2017.
- Finding my staple hair oils.
GOALS 1 & 2 = I have been doing a great job with these goals so far.
GOAL 6 = I finished my Curly Kinks DC today.
Maybe big chop. Probably big chop. Keep it simple.
I have been doing a good job with my weekly washes and using my growth aid 3x a week. I'm looking forward to straightening my hair in a couple weeks for my honey's bday.
I have two main goals for 2016 (for my hair)
MY ENDS! I want to baby them more so that I have greater length retention.
Not sure if this will happen this year but I want my hair to hang below my chest with just stretched hair and not straighten hair
Learn how to do this
My goal is full waist length... I really want to get there.
Also I plan to have my hair nicely styled at least 5 days out of 7. The other 2 will be for styling or my regimen.
Did I mention that one of my goals is to grow out the front and crown of my hair? I want my hair be all one length. Might use MN just in the front and crown area so it can catch up to the back
It's wash day yay. My scalp has been itching and it needs some tlc.
I will cleanse with Cream of Nature and treat with Kerastase Elixir Ultime.
More length. That's it really.
GOALS 1 & 2: I am still doing really well on these goals. As a result, I have found that I am more patient with knots and have been working most of them out without having to cut.
GOAL 6: I started out this year with 47 products I wanted to use up and as of today, I am down to 40. It looks like I may be able to get rid of 3 or 4 more products before this month is over.
I've been taking my multivitamin consistently. I'm almost done with my bottle. My upper layers are just past my collarbone so it's doing what it does.
I actually added two deep conditioners so I need to work on that goal.
just juiced 80z of carrot juice. read on BHM that this helps with thickness. gonna drink my egg smoothie later on tonight before bed
I massaged my scalp with sulfur oil today and I will moisturize my ends tomorrow. I want to dust my ends Sunday so I might buy a cutting comb
thicker hair regime: drink 8oz of carrot juice a day and a 12 oz egg smoothie a day
With a tbsp of msm. Eat 2 garlic cloves a day.
Why carrot juice?. And what's in the egg smoothie?
I eat garlic as well
Was googling ways to thicken hair and came across this thread about carrot juice on black hair media http://forum.blackhairmedia.com/what-i-did-to-get-super-thick-hair_topic12763_page2.html
Milk, 1 raw egg, 1 tbsp of wheat germ oil, 1 tbsp of raw wheat germ. I add a banana and peanut butter to it so it taste a lil better. I saw it on the "drink your way to waist length hair" thread.
Have you noticed that eating garlic makes you you shed less? Garlic supplements did nothing for me.
As for me today, I prepooed with Matrix Biolage Hydrasource with Aloeconitioning balm mixed with sunflower and palm oil and a dash of aloe jiuce.
It felt much better than it did last week. I suppose I can use it as a deep conditioner this way, but the prepoo is working swimmingly so why mess with a good thing?
I used Redken Time Reset shampoo (made my hair feel squeaky clean without feeling hard) and now I'm deep conditioning with Redken Time Reset Youth Revitalizer replenishing deep treatment for 20 minutes under hooded dryer.
This shampoo and treatment also have ceramides and camellia oil in them. I'm a little excited about that so we'll see how good it is for my hair once I'm done. I'm washing this out and finishing off with a palm oil rinse leaving some of it on my hair.
I'll be moisturizing with Redken Anti Snap leave in which also has ceramides in it sealed with sunflower oil. That's it for the ceramides for my hair for at least three days.
I went from a quarter sized amount of shed hair to less than five hairs. However, that was in conjunction with using Alter Ego Garlic Conditioner too.
I'm using hair oiling as my thicken your hair challenge along with eating a higher protein diet.
Thanks for the link. I enjoy carrot juice so I guess it couldn't hurt for me to pull out my juicer and make some.
@mzteaze might need to pick up some of the alter ego stuff once I finish my nutrine garlic shampoo and condish
Are you getting any results with Nutrine?
Alter Ego has always worked well for me.
Recover from breakage
Start taking vitamins again
Increase water intake
Exercise regularly to increase circulation
During the month of February I will use my growth oil every other day.
I'll know for sure when I take my braids out. Im hoping it works though. If not I'll switch brands.

2. Doing this. I drink a protein shake of 50 grams per day, plus w/my other foods I am sure I get about 70 grams in a day.
3. Still doing this, although I have been undoing my twists every week.
4. Still doing this...but I skipped last week to give my scalp a break. Was starting to itch.
