Really? I would just think it would get aggravating styling almost everyday

I just seen this... oops. Um, for me that's not a problem. I usually style everyday anyway, in some form or another. Whether it's a wash-n-go or twistout/braidout.

One thing I will do is wear hats outside but make sure the inside is lined with some kind of satin. Figure it would be good to protect my hair from the cold wind.

DC every day for 5 hours under a heatcap and PS 100% of the time








...nah Imma BKT and swing it, then maybe come back during spring crying about how I retained nothing lol. I just have to have a season of swing, this entire year my self esteem has taken a beating and I'm trying to get a man:look: I'll start being "natural" again in the spring.

In B4: you're beautiful naturally blah blah

*get a steamer
*oil rinse and DC religiously
*keep my ends healthy so i don't have to trim....but learn to S&D for when i do
*stick to my straight hair regimen
*reach BSL stretched
*ENJOY MY HAIR!

ETA: hah, apparently i already posted in here. nice to see most of my goals are still the same, except for that sew-in idea. my SO is NOT having that....but it's ok. i think i know my hair well enough now to be able to retain without it.

Start Henna-ing again.
DC more
Try to get back into twists again
trim more often
make a flat iron job look passable
trim my ends more
Find a reggie and stick to it.

I want to be a comfortable BSL not a "some days I am some days I'm not". Maybe when I straighten I'll know for sure.

In the winter I tend to enjoy deep conditioning more (think warm heating cap on a cold day). But I also tend to wear my hair down more to keep warm, which is a bad idea since I wear scarves and all that.

Fall/Winter 2010 Goals:
- DC twice a week
- Moisturize twice daily
- reach BSL by birthday in November
- protecitve style most if not all the time
- Use my growth aid more often to compensate for lack of growth

My Fall/Winter hair goals are to retain 2.5-3 so I can make WL. I think I can get 2inches which will be close enough. And I want to be a little more strict on my regimen since im now dealing with my own hair instead of wearing installs.
