Tips For Starting A Successful Hair Journey
Hey lovelies! Starting a hair journey may seem daunting but once you get going, you will never look back (hopefully). We want our hair to grow long and strong yet we stay at the SAME length for years. Why is that?
We are not consistent enough with our regimens and I am as guilty of that as anyone else, some days just lazing around and watching TV seems more important than that waist length hair you desire.The truth is, if you aren't consistent with your regimen, you will not see progress because your hair will break off just as fast as it is growing. So ladies, here are my tips to help you start off your successful hair journey.
1. Pictures, Pictures, Pictures.
You may be on your hair journey for years on end and may never see any progress but that does not mean it isn't growing. Our hair is ALWAYS growing. Sure, one persons hair may grow faster than another, but it is growing! Hair growth is such a gradual process that you give up on your hair when its actually showing progress. Unfortunately hair growth is not an overnight deal so patience is key. Take pictures BEFORE you begin your hair journey you can track your progress month after month.
2. Set Goals!
Sooo crucial! You need to know where you want to be in order to get there. Setting goals helps you be more consistent with your hair. If you set a challenge for yourself to reach bra strap length (BSL) in 6 months, you are much more likely to achieve it than if you are just dragging your feet with it.
3. Get To Know Your Hair.
This takes some time but you need to learn what your hair loves and hates. If your hair feels brittle after using a certain product, do not use it again. What may work for one may not work for your hair type. I had this sad experience with a certain shampoo that smelt soooo good, but left my hair even more dried out than before and tangled. If your hair hates it, ditch it!
4. Be Consistent.
When starting your hair journey and throughout it, be consistent with your regimen if you want to see progress! You will not see results if you leave your hair dry and damaged once a week and only take care of it for a few days the next week and slip right back into your inconsistency. It's a struggle ladies, but with the work comes that wonderful softness and health we crave.
5. Start On A Fresh Note.
When starting your hair journey, its quite likely you will have some split ends or uneven hair. Make sure you start your hair journey on a good note by getting a fresh trim.It will help to keep your hair even as you probably wont like to see the length go once you start seeing some growth.
Good luck on your hair journeys my lovelies! Positive vibes everywhere!
