Daily:
Exercise (not always a hard core gotta burn 1000 calories but do something extra every day for an hour)
Take vitamins
Drink at least 8 glasses of water
Log what I eat

Weekly:
Co-wash x2 (Wed/Sat)
DC under hair dryer for at least 30 minutes
PS on Sunday night for the week (I'm learning to flat twist my own hair)
Use my scale to check weight, bone density, body fat and water levels.

Monthly:
Clarifying wash to remove product build up.
Search and destroy any damaged ends
Take a picture for the WL in 2012 challenge.

I also plan to stretch my relaxer until January

My goals include:

- Protective styling like it's my job.
- Deep condition once a week.
- Try to co-wash more often.
- Exercise more.
- Try to grow and retain as much length as these winter months will allow... I'm about 2 inches from BSL and if I can retain, I'll be there by December!

Since I really want to get close to BSL by year's end, I plan to:

  • deep condition twice weekly (while also making sure to heat the conditioner first before applying it)
  • up my water intake
  • continue taking my pre-natal vitamins
  • using protective styles of either bunning or hiding my hair under my self installed sew-ins
  • seal my ends daily
  • take the plunge and invest in a joico vapor iron at Christmas as a celebration gift for my success (I'm thinking positive ladies)!!
  • oh yeah and exercise more (I want a wicked body to go with the wicked hair lol) :grin:

I have been thinking about what to do for the Winter too. I was concerned because last winter my hair seemed like it just went to sleep for the winter. Since I've been on LHCF I've learned so much and plan to be ready this time. I have discovered that during the Winter my hair needs different products to keep it soft and growing. I wont be perming my hair during the Winter (16 wks post). If I don't do it by the end of Sept, I will just weave it up and leave it alone till the Spring.

I plan to:

1. Deep condition twice a week
2. Wear more weave styles
3. Wear 1/2 wigs
4. Not perm till Spring
5. Dust my ends between weaves every 8-10 wks (I discovered my hair grows better with trims)
6. Make sure to drink plenty of water and take hair skin and nail vitamins
7. Make BSL mid Winter!

1. Low manipulation and PS 99.99% of the time
2. Keep my moisture/protein balance in check
3. Retain length
4. Keep hair (esp. ends) moisturized
5. DC with every wash with Keracare!!!
6. Be excited for stretch ending b/c the amount of new growth on my 4b hair will redikulous after 20 weeks :lachen:
 
I plan on:
keeping hair covered whenever possible
running warm steam humidifier to keep air moist
being consistent with the chia seeds (they keep me 'juicy')

I want to be below APL by the end of the year..I am toying with the idea of doing a brown rinse over my honey blonde hair...I may do a small trim (I tend to get scissor happy, so I avoid them like the plague)..I want to wear my hair str8 @ least 40-50 % this fall/winter..but no direct heat..roller sets and silk wraps only..Oh and buns and wigs...my hair grew like crazy last winter...but I kept it braided under a wig for the entire fall/winter season...

Mine is:

1) Keep my hair moisturize as much as possible
2) No blow dry or flat iron unless I'm doing my relaxer
3) oil with scalp with camellia
4) PS most of the time(99%)
5) No cutting
6) And hopefully make BSL by Jan 2011

Okay...since I'm sure its gonna be a cold winter again down here in New Orleans(i mean look at how hot its been so far!), I'm gonna have to really step the hair game up since I'm in the early stages of transitioning.

1. Learn how to cornrow or flat twist my hair under my wigs
2. Dust hair ONLY WHEN NEEDED!
3. Stick with my Bee Mine Growth Serum religiously
4. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize...

Okay so I've already changed one of my goals and its not even Fall yet :lachen:. Instead of rockin twists and braids under my wigs, I'll be sticking to sew-ins for the remainder of my transition. :yep:

Retain at least 2 inches to be at or just past WL!
Improve keeping moisture in hair whilst transitioning with buns.
Improve my flat twisting technique for cuter results (that can be paired with buns)
Continue steaming hair twice a week.
Find a nice afro-looking half-wig or make one!
