Hair Health Update: January 2015

It's hard to believe it, but January is over and we're starting the second month of 2015. A co-worker and I were talking it about the other day. It seems that the older you get, the quicker time moves. Well, with the end of January comes my monthly hair update where share where I stand with my hair goals and the overall state of my hair.

To level set I set some goals for 2015 which are to maintain the health of my hair, minimize the number of products I try, protect my ends at least five days a week and find a new stylist. On these I give myself a 60% as I really only achieved about two of the goals this month.

Maintain the health of my hair

I don't think I did as good a job as I could have. Now that I'm back in my own place, I'm trying to get back to my full wash day and hair maintenance routine. I'm only a couple of wash days in and I'm noticing that hair, particularly my ends, is back to not retaining moisture for more than a few days after washes. On the plus side, using the Jamaican Black Castor Oil is helping to reduce my itchy and flaky scalp.

Minimize the number of products I try

I tried two new products this month and will be trying some new oils in February so I won't be giving myself a good grade on this one for a while.

Protect my ends at least five days a week

Done and done. I've worn my ends tucked for at least five days except for one week this month.

Find a new stylist

This isn't something that will show up each month since I only go to the stylists 3-4 times a year. I have found a stylist that was recommended by a stylist in North Carolina who I will be seeing for a touch up at 16 weeks. We'll see what happens.

Plans for February 

In February I plan to focus on my ends by protecting them and finding ways to keep them moisturized between washes.

How are you doing with your 2015 hair goals?

  1. I haven't set any hair goals for the year. Ihave every other year of my journey and while length is still VERY important to me, I'm transitioning so I feel like it would be depressing to focus on it. However, I do plan to go back to the basics to maximize my growth and retention - so I'm right there with you on protecting your ends!
