2014: My Hair Goal


Hello my lovelies!!

Happy New Year!!

Did you make any resolutions? I didn’t. But this year like every year, I have a theme, a big picture, I set goals.

I have a singular hair goal for 2014: LENGTH!!

I haven’t studied my hair’s growth rate, but at the end of the year, I want to see significant improvement. 4 to 6 inches in twelve months is fair enough, no?

A goal is a destination- so if you’re going to get there, you really have to think about HOW you’re getting there.

My plan:

Length Retention is the focus. 

And Protective styling is the way. I plan to put my hair in Protective styles- alternating between extensions and my own hair. Extensions one month, no extensions in the next. Minimal manipulation is key, and I’m going to have to master some styles this year! I must!!

Also, while I’m at this, I intend to keep my hair healthy and happy. Clean, well moisturised- and between styles, I must make sure I deep condition- and baby my hair well-well. 🙂

Doesn’t look like too heavy a plan now, does it?

I’m already off to a good start- I have a sew-in weave at the moment. I hope I’m consistent!

So guys. You’ve heard my Hair Goal for 2014, I want to know yours. Are you transitioning this year? Big chopping this year? Are you looking to add a few more inches? Or to finally master how to moisturise?

More than your goals, I want to know HOW you plan to get there. Sound off in the comments section sharing what your goal is, and how you’re going to achieve it! Good luck ladies!!
