SPRING/SUMMER 2007: What are your hair plans?

This will be the first spring/summer I've actually paid much attention to my hair, and I know a lot of people change up their hair regimens according to the seasons. So, I wanted to know what are people's hair regimens for the upcoming spring/summer. It can include fitness (cause we all know that health contributes to hair growth) and prayer (cause we need all the help we can get!). :lol:

Here are my (current) plans, subject to change:

- Getting these split ends cut!!!
- Since I'm in GA, wearing more WNG's and doing daily CO washes
- Henna 2x/month
- Deep condish when necessary
- Keeping ends moisturized
- Exercising at least 30 mins each day, starting out 5x/wk
- Drinking lots of water
- Taking the Carrot Juice Hair Growth challenge
- Taking my mulitvitamin, B-12(thinking of changing to B-complex), MSM and biotin daily
- Using my Boundless Tresses every other day (NL, I've been slacking!) :(

What's yours?
Discuss!!!

I am currently in a sew-in:

1. Use Boundless Tresses every other day
2. Shampoo and condition once a week (Pantene Smooth and Sleek Shampoo; Joico KPac Conditioner and Leave In Restorative Treatment)
3. Air dry and flat iron once a week (avoid direct heat)
4. Relax once every 12-14 weeks
5. When I take out the sew in, I deep condition with Salerm. My stylist even complimented me, raving about how healthy and silky my hair looked and felt after a Salerm treatment. It's the wheat germ mask (looks like a greenish brown slime). It looks yucky, but it works wonders! One of Lorraine G's older posts hipped me to the Wheat Germ Mask.

The only thing that I'm going to change is using BT on a daily basis. Everything else will pretty much stay the same...drinking water. exercising, eating right and taking my vits :) .

i plan to do the Crown and Glory method over the summer... my hair is thick and it gets hot! :lol: plus braids are a great protective style in general... don't have to mess with doing my hair, they're cute, they last for at least 2 weeks or more.

but i don't have a braider anymore... :perplexed and if i don't find one quick then i'll have to either find time to do my own braids, or instead do Chicoro's baggy method (which i modify by adding a phony pony).

here's to hoping i find a reliable braider! :look:

My plans are to keep up with conditoner washes because I can FINALLY do wash and go's now (I'm loving the all natural thing so much!)

I want my hair to really grow out this summer.
I also plan on starting to use the Boundless Stresses (even though I don't think my hair needs to get any thicker)

I will do two strand twist now and again and keep it in for two weeks so that I don't have to bother with my hair. For a hair style (for my brother's college graduation of any other event this summer) I will do comb coils and then pin it up myself into a nice updo or something, maybe half up half down.

I'll be working out and training for a marathon, so a lot of water, sweat will be involved. Therefore, I thought about getting braids, but there are two problems: whenever I've had braids, my hair would mat, even though I don't keep them in long. I think my hair is too fine and soft for the braids. Also, braids tend to break my hair, so that's not going to help either. So I decided to just keep doing protective styles, keeping the ends especially moisturized and dusted. Drink lots of water and stick with the protein treatments, henna-ing and cassia treatments. The goal is to take advantage of the changing weather, since hair tends to grow faster in the warmer months. My goal is to help it along by stepping up the regimen and staying on track with my overall health.

GOD luck to all of you!!!!

I'm not really planning to do much different...I'm thinking of trying henna this spring, and I'll definitely be prepooing more this summer. Other than that, I plan to keep up with my poo/DC regimen and all the things I usually do.

I definitely plan to minimize the protective styling. Much of my protective styling is born out of convenience, but I want to wear my hair out a lot more this summer so I'll be sure to keep my ends moisturized.

Stick to my already effective regimen...

-conditioner wash daily
-shampoo twice a week
-rock my twist/braid outs more often... I love my rollersets but I like alternatives.
-keep ends moisturized and sealed with oils and dusted.

this is what works for me;)
