Goals for the New Year

I stopped setting goals for my hair journey and pretty much have been keeping it simple. But there are two main things that I want to accomplish. Keep reading to find what's going on.

1. Try to use up at least half my product stash by the end of July and buying no new products during that time.

Yes I know what you are going to say and you are absolutely right. I have done product no buy stints before. Some I got through and others were a complete fail. But my stash of products is still out of control. I seriously need to cut it down and reign in my product junkiness. I love trying out new products but the lesson I need to learn is that I do not have to try every product that catches my interests. They will still be there when it's the right time for me to buy them. I have a wide range of products for each category: shampoos, conditioners, deep conditioners, leave ins and stylers. So I have to dig extremely deep to keep from getting anything else. I can and will do it.

2. To make it to two years post relaxers. No big chopping.

My desire to cut my relaxed ends off changes with just about every wash day. I am still not too comfortable with the length of my natural hair. I know that I would not be happy if I big chop. But I want to stick to making it to 2 years post, maybe even 3 if my hair continues to cooperate. I want to be about APL or longer with my hair stretched whenever I decide to big chop. I'm really not in much of a hurry.

Do you have any new goals for you hair journey?


  1. Great resolutions! Your economy Will thrive. Cos even if it is just a couple if bugs per bottle, it is a lot if you add it all upp.

  2. Yes it does. I will definitely see the difference in my wallet. lol

  3. 2015 is the LAST year of my transition. I will either BC in June or October...heck, it may even be sooner! I am getting the 'itch'. I also would like to find a staple moisturizing DC. I thought that I had found one but then my hair stopped liking it, so back to the drawing board. I HATE looking for staples. Happy New Year!
