Small steps in the right direction

It has been almost five months from my trim in December. Have I reached the goals that I planned to reach? Not quite. I am grazing BSL in the back and I am at APL in the front. I do recognize that my hair has grown. butnotasmuchasiwish. Ok, ok, I have to be grateful. I am trying to convince myself that the goal is healthy, strong hair...not Rapunzel-floor-length-hair over night.

In my quest for (longer), healthier, stronger hair. I have decided to follow the following regimen:

  • Deep Condition Weekly (Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque)
  • Hot Oil Treatment Weekly (Grape Seed Oil, Castor Oil, Olive Oil, Argan Oil, Alma Oil)
  • Henna Monthly
  • Braid-outs during the week
  • Bunning at least twice a week
  • Moisturizing with S-Curl (soul glo...lol) Nightly
  • Sealing ends with Caster Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Argan Oil, and Vitamin E Oil mixture
I am hoping that this will help me to reach my goals. I will be receiving a trim in May. With that, I am crossing my finger to reach and surpass my BSL length goal by the end of August. I then want to get my hair buntly cut into a U-Shape and continue on WL by (insert date here).

Here are some styles that I have used within the past month...

I plan on taking length shots this upcoming weekend to show the comparison lengths.
