In 2011 I plan to maintain a full set of healthy hair. In 2010 I was so focused on gaining length that I failed to take care of my ends which resulted in severely damaged ends. All of my progress was gone when I had to cut off two inches of hair, but it taught me a hard lesson. Although length is great, hair is not very enjoyable when it is breaking, thinning, and has split ends. I would much rather have short healthy hair than long, unhealthy hair. In order to achieve my goal of healthier hair, I will be incorporating henna, honey, African black soap, qhemet biologics moisturizers, and gentle manipulation of my hair into my regimen.Rather than washing and conditioning my hair once a month as I did in 2010, I will shampoo with black soap every two- weeks and deep-condition with desert essences coconut conditioner and honey every week. I will then apply my amla and olive heavy cream to my protective style and seal with a lighter oil such as grapeseed or avocado oil. Also every month I will perform a henna treatment using this recipe( 50g of reshma henna, 5 tbsp of honey, 1 cup of steeped green tea, 2 tbsp of conditionr, and 2tbsp of coconut cream). This recipe will ensure that the henna treatment does not dry out my hair too much I will then follow my treatment by deep conditioning with desert essences coconut conditioner and honey. I have also recently found out about the dangers of combs with seams, and I have decided to switch to seamless combs. Hopefully this will prevent a lot of my split ends. By implementing this new regimen I hope to reach armpit length hair with full healthy ends.
Hmmmm, lets see. What do I want to achieve in my natural hair journey for 2011. I think I want to focus on on keeping my hair healthy and thick for starters. Being as patient as possible when it comes to my hair. I learned that is a top requirement when it comes to natural hair--I suffered from a couple of setbacks because I lacked that last year. =( But I am going to work hard on the PATIENCE part this year!
Another thing I want change is my hair color (or at least try some), I am really on the edge of wondering do I want to mess with color. *le sigh* The thing I am scared if is setbacks, I don't want anymore those. Plus, my hair can get pretty dry at times. So I guess I am going to dabble a bit in Semi-perm colors and see how I like it. And see if I want to take the plunge! hehe.
That about sums it up. All in all, I hope it will be a good year for my hair! =D
