Now that 2016 is only a few weeks away, I took some time to sit down and think through how I fared with my 2015 relaxed hair goals and set my hair goals for 2016.

Final Progress with 2015 Goals
1. Maintain the health of my hairGrade A+
After a few trims and good relaxer stretch, my ends looked good and I was able to maintain length. I was also able to keep my relaxed hair moisturized without using a lot of product.
2. Minimize the number of new products I try this yearGrade A
I think I tried fewer new products in 2015 than I did in 2014. Mostly because I’ve got a good list of products that work for me and I don’t have any reason right not to stray from them. Of the new products I did try in 2015 only a few became regimen staples.
3. Protect my ends at least five days a weekGrade B
I did really well with this during the first 10 months of the year. After my last touch up I decided it was time to enjoy my hair and I’ve worn it out a lot more than usual. I will say that days I wear it out I try to clip it up when I’m in the car traveling or keep it wrapped when I’m at home. I think that has allowed me to avoid any dryness or major breakage.
4. Find a new stylistGrade B+
I tried three stylists this year and I think the last one who touched up my relaxed hair could be it.
