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.

Styles I plan to do when I reach WL

I saw this thread on BHM and it got me thinking about what styles I want to do when I reach my final goal. Here are the styles I'm planning on wearing when I reach waist length. I'm in no way "restricting" these styles for my final fact I'm experimenting with these styles now and I'm really enjoying my length. It's just that I think they will look even better at my goal.

Down and out:
- Huge braidout (basically re-create my favourite halfwig)

- Spiral curls with a clampless iron/curling iron
- Pin straight w/ center or side part

- Half up, half down

Protective styles:
- Fishtail braid
- 2 french braids on each side
- Massive braidout bun
- donut bun sans donut
- messy bun on the very top my my head

Just a few celebrity inspired

Kelly Rowland's rocking a weave but I think this can be re-created with a 1"curling iron

Can we just take a second to appreciate Keshia Knight Pulliam's hair? *le sigh*

Ashanti is rocking a weave too but this style can be re-created using a 3-barrel waving iron or a deep waver
Pretty....can be re-created by a braidout w/ gray perm rods on the ends

What styles are you planning to do once your hair gets longer??


  1. Hmm, I like the idea of this post :) Keeps you that much more motivated to get to your ultimate goal. Do you mind if I re-post this idea? =) (You will be credited)

  2. Of course! You don't even have to credit me...I got this idea from BHM lol

  3. Girl I got all my styles picked out. All kindsa fishbone braids and flippy curls and whatnot

  4. Hmmm....I have thought about this before and other than my usual side part, middle part, half up/down, I like the middle part with a small braid on each side in the front secured in the back with the rest of the hair left down....I have been wearing that style a lot lately and the longer the hair the prettier it looks.... The thing I want to do the most though once reaching wl is to wear one long plait in back. Also the 2 plait Pocahontas look :-) But for the most part, I will simply just wear it down, straight most of the time and an occasional braidout.
