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.

A hair in the head is worth two in the brush

I always stress that faster growth is good, but retention is key. I assume that the readers of this blog already have an idea of the healthy hair care basics, which leaves room for more advanced techniques and tips to take length retention to the next level. I am, by no means, a fast grower. I've had so much trial and error it's not even funny. But that's what I love about blogging. I get to share all the things that WORK for me to retain length and health. If you don't blog or have a private hair journal, I highly encourage you to start one today!!


  1. Haha I love the title of this post :)

  2. "Taking care of your hair is like taking care of yourself" that's what my mother told me when I was little. She said that the hair represents the personality of the woman. It can give statements without you saying anything. So take care of your hair as long as you have one.haha
