How are you planning to enjoy your hair more in 2014?

What else? At twist out. lol

Well hey there ladies and Happy New Year!!  I hope  you all enjoyed the holidays with your loved ones. I know I enjoyed my time with friends and family, and good food!!  Soo much food, and now it's over time to get back to business! .

 I don't know about you but I am feeling blessed to have made it into the New year. It says to me that God is trusting me, and giving me another chance to make an impact for Him. So I resolve to grow closer to the Lord this year so that we can be in perfect harmony. I know this will cover me in every area of  my life!  

Winter Crochets

As for my hair,  I've been feeling like I want worry free, carefree hair this year? Last summer I can recall setting a goal to grow my hair to Full MBL and maybe even WL, but something happened to me this fall and I'm still feeling it this winter! lol.  I just want to enjoy my hair.  So much can go into continuing to retain long Kinky Natural hair. The longer your hair the more gentle you have to be because the hair on the ends is older. I have  lost some serious patience within the last six months with my hair, and I believe it's my schedule. I don't have as much time to spend on it. So I've decided I better put my precious locks away before I do something I regret! I've been looking at twa's and  short curly bobs a lot more lately. lol.  

I'snt' this cute!?  And it looks easy. 

 I am here to tell you if you want to grow your hair long and healthy you can definitely do it! But remember to set a realistic goal. Not an attainable "length" reality but, being real with how much hair you think you can deal with, keeping it healthy, and enjoy it at the same time.  Lets face it, what's the point of having long beautiful natural hair if you can't enjoy it?  I don't want to constantly think about some of the things I think about in order to have waist length hair. So what am I saying?  I'm saying I just want to enjoy my hair, and without having to spend hours in it on wash day(s).   This doesn't mean that I want to wear it out every chance I get(can't deal with the SSKs) But I  want to let go and let flow and this year, I shall be doing that.  Yes, I would like to "see" my hair just a little longer, but  I  am going to continue to doing the things I know I should to keep my hair healthy and happy. Period. I won't be measuring, and setting length goals for my hair to reach by certain dates. I will no longer be afraid to flat iron my hair more than once or twice a year for fear of heat damage, and I will no longer be afraid to cut off more than 1/8 of an inch when I trim! lol.  I've been natural for over 4 years and I think I'm out growing that. I know my hair can grow and it will eventually be where ever it need to be.  I'm resolving to keep my hair at a peaceable enjoyable length for me.  And on this year we shall find out what that its!  

          As for what's next? Once my Crochet braids come down I will probably get it flat ironed and a really good trim and shape, because I am growing a tail!! lol My hair grows in a V on the bottom, and that V grows pretty fast so I have to get some order in that area!  I  don't wanna look like a sting ray by the head,  when wearing my twist outs!  : ) 

  So, how will you enjoy your hair more on this year?(without damaging it)  What goals do you have set?   Remember, whatever you do keep it healthy, find a balance, and keep your peace of mind! Our natural hair should be healthy, happy, and fun...  

Well Until Next time!!    

Oh one more thing!  I really enjoy all the emails and questions I've been getting from my newly natural ladies, and those who are currently transitioning to natural or a healthy hair lifestyle.  If there are any topics that you would like to see covered that aren't here just let me know in the comments below!  Thanks for reading!
