Regimen + Goals

My Hair Regimen: I moisturize and/or oil my hair daily. As needed (usually weekly) I cleanse my hair and scalp with a moisturizing shampoo (or a clarifying one if there's build up). I do a moisturizing OR protein treatment with every shampoo. I stretch my relaxers 3-4 months.

My go-to protective/low manipulation styles: buns, braid-outs and halfwigs. In 2012 I want to start experimenting with more heat-free styles. I air dry most of the time and flat iron for length checks only.

I'm currently midback length (MBL) and actively working towards reaching waist length by my graduation in mid-2012.

Staying at MBL (for now)

My ends (in my opinion) are just alright. Not many splits but they are not completely even, and feel slightly rougher. So I'm thinking about maintaining MBL for a while until the ends even up. I'm not aiming for perfect ends. Just more even and maybe in a U-shape...and of course healthy with no splits. So that means I'll be cutting and trimming more often. I already trimmed an inch or so (very ends and all over) last night.

In the mean time, I'll be preserving my "new" ends by continuing to baggy nightly on non-wash days. Also when I apply product, focus a little extra on the ends. And be extra gentle when detangling braidouts.

It's not all about my ends though. I actually really like being this length. I don't feel like repunzel (okay, maybe a little) but I'm quite happy with my hair.

Right now it seems like MBL is the happy medium between long length and styling options.


  1. I love MBL hair! Its my final stop in this journey and I agree that it is the most versatile in terms of styling. I plan to even up at full BSL then continue on to MBL so I'll be following ur exact plan when I get there.

  2. WOW, your hair looks great!!!


  3. Once I hit MBL, I think want to hang out at that length as well. I would only gain from it because if I do stay and continue to grow and trim, I'd have even ends and if I decide to push on to WL then I'd be set to reach it with nice full ends. Win/win.

    P.S. I was on your blog right before I fell asleep and then dreamt I had MBL hair. I woke up a little disappointed haha.
