And so the Journey Begins..

Lately ( for about 3 months),  I have been doing tons and tons of research on hair/hair products. I am very interested in the process it takes to retain length and maintain healthy hair. With that being said, I have decided to go on a HAIR JOURNEY........ YEP, A HAIR JOURNEY!! I am really excited and I am anticipating great results within a year. After much research and seeing other ladies progress, I am convinced it's time for me to start my own healthy hair regimen.

Bra Strap Length (BSL)
My goal is to have Bra Strap Length (BSL) hair by next year this time. I know for a fact, I have not been doing all that it takes to maintain my hair and unfortunately my hair has suffered tremendously this year. As a result, I am starting a strict regimen to combat this issue. From hair here on out, I will probably be posting quite a bit on my "Hair Journey" and updating you on my progress.

Currently, I am about 2 1/2 months post my relaxer. I plan on stretching this relaxer out for about 6 months. WHEW! I know! Seriously though, my hair can usually go without a relaxer for months, so I think I can manage. However, still keep your fingers crossed lol!! Now, the main reason for stretching my relaxer out is to use less harsh chemicals on my hair and to increase the thickness of my strands. Anyway, as my journey to BSL continues, I promise to keep you posted.

My Regimen
(In my next post, I will go over what all this means. I feel sleepy tonight and can't be bothered. Sorry.)
  • 1x/week (Sunday or Monday) Pre-poo my hair
  • 1-2x/month Clarify
  • 1x/week (Monday) Shampoo (Sulfate Free)
  • 2x/week (Monday & Thursday) Deep Condition (DC)
  • 1/week (Thursday) Co-wash  

  • Daily Moisturize and seal hair in sections  

  • 1-2x/month Protein treatment
  • Baggy hair whenever I am at home
  • Air dry hair
  • Leave in Conditioner after every wash

I know this may sound confusing and like I am doing a lot to my hair, but honestly it's not. I will go into more details in my next post. 

*Sincerely Me*
