One on One Advice.. Don't go it Alone..

2011 Healthy Hair Goals..

Ladies and Gents.. it is that time again..

End of the year and time to get your New Year Hair Goals.. down.. 
It's always god to write things down so don't delay.. 

Get the fancy paper.. and the cute pen and get to work.. 
If your a Mackie like me.. then type a way.. Yes.. I love my Mac book.. 

Make your goals simple and realistic.. 
Like shiny hair.. 
Don't get me wrong wanting waist hair locks is fine too.. 

But if your Hair is neck length then you have to be real it's not going to be at your waist by 2012. 

Here is my List:- 
1. Keep my ends trimmed and healthy
2. Add more moisture
3. Use less heat
4. Waist length hair

It's ok to dream and have long term goals- but you have to have short term goals as well. To keep you motivated as you cross them out!!!

How low can you go!!!

Haha.. No not Luda's "How Low can you go" Ladies...

I am referring to the term Low Manipulation- Hair and Hairstyles...

No disrespect to Luda- I actually like that song..  :) 

Back to the subject at hand..
I have challenged myself- Not to add any heat to my Hair until-New's Years.
It's my Before New's Years hair challenge...

Basically, a simple co-wash and go.. trying not to over comb, brush and absolutely no heat!
This is considered low manipulation or LM.

Until then- yikes what do I do.. 
Not to stress- that's for sure.. Everything happens for a reason- 
Now, that I am 95% Chemical Free..  Bravo, bravo, bravo.... 
My hair seems to love the Oils and Co-washing- along with the Air Drying- 

This is a twist-out on damp hair
Let air dry for about an hour
then let it hang!!!
Yes, it is Atlanta and it is cold as we are headed into winter- it is about 45-55 degrees out on an average day.. aka freezing..

But, I simply wring out as much water as I can.. and sorta shake the rest of water out..

While listening to my girl- 
Like really try it.. Its super fun.. Don't hurt yourself now!! I am not responsible.. lol

What's Happening Now...

Can you believe 2010 is almost over! Time just flew right by it seems.. 
 What a hair journey it has been for me..
As many of you may know..and for those of you don't know..  I have decided to stop processing my hair back in 2009.. well this year was quite a challenge...
 This is a Straight Style..
Blow dry and flat ironed.

I had to get use to my own curls.. the pattern.. the texture.. 
what a roller coaster ride of emotions..
Many times.. I felt like just turning back to the chemicals- the feeling of "I can't manage my hair" kept playing in my head like a broken tune.

But, I am so happy to share with you I MADE IT..
I am almost to my goals.

I had a few hair Goals really..lined up this year..

First the fantasy.. I wanted my hair to reach my waist .. It's not quiet there yet..LOL. However, I would say by next year this time it will be..well beyond.. Mermaid dreams here I come.. 

Also, I wanted to have 100% Natural Hair.. Almost there as well. I would say 95% of my hair has grown in- leaving just the ends- with the Texturizer..

And the Biggest.. One I almost forgot- I did not want my hair to BREAK
As I had heard and read so many horror stories- Wooo weeee-- I conquered that demon as well..

So here are a few tips that worked for me..

Tips-on Transitioning-
. Protective styles are a must: Buns, braid outs, etc. Anything that will keep you from adding heat is a plus.
. Moisturising: Oil, leave-in-conditioners, hair serums and co-washing. These all help create a great mositure balance in your hair. My personal philosophy you can really never have to much moisture.
.Trimming those ends: I know Ladies the fear of the scissors and you have good reason- but its a must as well.
