Since the year is ending and 2012 is approaching, it’s time for brand new resolutions! In addition to saving more cash, working out far more, beginning a small business or looking for a new position, several natural hair wearers establish hair promises at the same time.
This is my set of 2012 natural hair resolutions, some remaining carry-overs from this year!
10. Attempt far more styles — For 2012 I’m planning to try and not have a “signature” style. I’m going to attempt new styles on my hair outside of twist-out, therefore I can get a lot more creative with my styles.
9. Drink more water –Water is known for helping hair to be more supple. Therefore, I plan on drinking 8-10 glasses of water every day to have healthier hair and enhance my hair growth.
8. Attend more natural hair events — There are plenty of meet-ups and natural hair occasions released over the internet, this coming year I will do my best to attend more than just one or two.
7. Continue to keep a grip on product junkism — I usually do pretty well in this category, however I still wanted to write down this resolution so I can hold myself accountable.
6. Only trim when necessary— To retain length I plan on trimming only when I have split ends. In the past I often would trim my ends regardless if I had split ends or not. For 2012, I’m planning to only trim my ends as needed. This may be between 6-8 weeks or longer.
5. Stay up-to-date with social networks, blogs, YouTube videos, etc — For 2012, I intend to remain up-to-date with the web hair community — this will help give me more ideas for my own personal products, styles, regimens, and so on.
4. Maintain documenting my journey — I’ve found that recording (i.e. taking photos, writing a blog, and so on…) my very own journey helps me to generate creative styles, and much more do-it-yourself products and accessories. It’s also a wonderful way to “give-back” by helping others at the same time.
3. Continue spoiling my hair — I realized that the greater pampering, the greater my general hair health. I plan to incorporate ayurvedic hair treatments into my hair regimen, keep moisturizing my hair daily, twice a month deep conditioning with henna and sporting protective styles.
2. Create my own products at home— This doesn’t just make sure that what I’m using on my hair is all-natural, but it can help to help keep the cost of my hair care at a minimum.
1. Clear away products from cabinets — by means of making use of all my products and attending product trades prior to buying more products
That is my countdown list of 2012 natural black hair resolutions, just what are your own?
