Hey! As you know, I needed a plan to whip my hair back into shape since I had to cut T H R E E inches about four months ago.
Have I developed a concrete plan...nope. But I must say that I have made some changes that I am happy with.
- No Heat. Yes Miss Blow-Dry-After-Every-Wash-Because-It-Made-Her-Twist-Outs-Look-Amazing has not used a blow-dryer since her haircut at the end of February. My twists have been done on wet hair folks. Is it exactly how I like it? No. But I am willing to make the sacrifice for healthy hair and length.
- Protective Styling. Remember this post when I said I would never put two-strand mini-twists ever again. Well, yeah. Never say never. Soon after cutting, I put two-strand twists in for 4 weeks! I must admit it felt nice not having to worry about fussing over my hair for a month. Note: When I do my two-strand twists, my hair is NOT blow-dried. I braid my hair and allow it to dry for a day before twisting.
- Trimming "Schedule". I am committing to trimming my hair every 3-4 months. I would go too long between trims and I had to be truthful with myself. I do not have the texture where I can go almost a year without a trim. It's been about 4 months now, but I have an appointment on Friday.
So these are the steady changes that I have made since my last hair cut. We will see if I have made any progress when I go to the salon.
Til next time!
