2nd Hair growth goal officially met!!! 👏👏👏💃💃💃🙌🙌🙌
Mid Back Length (MBL) was my second hair growth/length goal. Next growth/length goal is Waist Length. ☝️
My hair is now the longest that it has ever been in my adult life!
I’m motivated to get on it! Being consistent with my deep treatments, eating healthier, increasing my water intake, & taking extra care of my hair is the main part of my plan. To help boost my growth I’ve started back taking Biotin 5,000 mcg, Folic Acid 400 mcg, & my normal one a day multi-vitamin.
Doing these things will more so help with length retention & will strengthen my hair as I strive for maximum growth.
Length retention is important as I know that my hair is growing but if it’s breaking then that defeats the purpose.
I’m already very disciplined about keeping my hair tied up even when laying around the house. This helps to prevent my hair snagging or drying out. I will be more consistent with my deep treatments, taking my vitamins, being more careful as I’m styling.
Low manipulation styling & keeping my hair moisturized when wearing wash n’ go styles will be key. This means that I may go back to wetting my hair down more often than just once per week. This will take me following a schedule & being disciplined in doing so.
An occasional protein treatment will work well to strengthen my hair as well. For protein treatments I will try different methods to see which I like best over time. Examples are egg & coconut oil, my usual avocado treatments, some store bought treatments & even Henna. I’ve actually plan to do another Henna treatment soon in the next couple of months.
Increasing my water intake will help to keep my hair moisturized from the inside out & will help to prevent unnecessary shedding. Exercising more will hallo with blood flow & oxygen needed for hair health, and last but not least continue my no heat challenge/journey! This coming August will be a full 3 years without straightening my hair! I plan to stay the course! 🙏🙏🙏🙏
I plan to incorporate scalp massages as a new technique for helping to boost my growth as well. I hadn’t done this in the past out of laziness & fear of causing my hair to tangle. 😳 But I’m going to give it a try any way.
I’ll keep sharing as I go along! My ultimate growth/length goal is to reach Tailbone length! 😬 I think that would be major impressive. Let’s see!
I don’t get hung up on the lengths within any certain time frame because it would make me ungrateful for the success that I have achieved this far. I just enjoy the journey & the ride as I take care of my hair. The simple fact that my hair in its natural state is the healthiest, thickest, shiniest, longest, strongest that it had ever been my entire life is enough to keep a smile on my face!
I hope this is inspiration for some of you ladies! Thanks for reading!
What’s you growth/length goal? What’s your plan to achieve it?
