What is Your Natural Hair Length / Height Goal 2017?

Welcome back ladies and beaus, I hope you brought the New Year in with much bliss and happiness. Often times we make New Year’s Resolutions to lose weight, eat healthier, and new year/new goals. We all desire to have a better year than the last. My resolution this year is to retain a healthy length of hair. On Instagram, I posted a picture of a short cut. I thought about going short, but I my year off with a box braided bob.

box braided natural hairstyle bob vs long hair What do you choose, Cut or Low Maintenance Hairstyles?

What are your expectations for your hair this year? I would love for my hair to widen in length. I want to be able to rock my hair from its natural state. I will watch to see if my hair widens with my height.

natural hair goal 2017

Many individuals in the hair community have the length hair t-shirts. What will your regimen be for these expectations? I have new products coming to me really soon.

true natural hair care products set

What is your #hairlengthgoal? I actually just want my hair to grow it’s genetically length way, if that means anything. I want my hair to be the healthiest I can be. I cannot wait to see how this low maintenance hairstyle does with my hair. I will make sure to clean my scalp and keep it hydrated. An itchy and dry scalp will not help in the process of retaining length. If your scalp is dry, it does not have enough moisture to grow to the end. At the end of the year, we will look at my hair for width in length. WISH ME WELL, AND WITH LONGEVITY FOR MY TWIGS!

Where is Natural Hair going to? I will be interviewing Jiquay Glenn, who brings a Hair Expo to Jackson, TN a place where I grew up. I also plan to attend to see what I can learn from other naturalists. Natural hair is a movement not a? Where is natural hair and products going economically and societal. What is the future of natural hair? We build this identity every day for women to have their own state of naturalism. Granted, it is a process of patience, but the love your grow from yourself and hair is the best feeling. A feeling of togetherness of what you say and do to your hair. Hairs to the New Year, Let’s get going!

Top 8 Moisture-Friendly Natural Hair Styles

Bantu Knots– These are perfect, especially after wash day. Once your natural hair is cleansed you can saturate your hair from root to tip with your favorite oils. Then add some edge control to completely finish off your look. This look is great for moisture retention because it leaves the majority of your natural hair unexposed. The least of your hair is exposed the least likely your hair will be able to lose its moisture.

bantu knot protective natural hairstyle moisture friendly style

Up-do– Quick and easy! This look can be achieved with a simple tuck and roll. After you have already detangled and moisturized your natural hair, you can now begin to style. Start with the back by rolling the hair in an upward motion and securing it with several bobby pins. Next, tuck the front hair section in to the upward roll. Voila!

Box Braids– This is a great hair style for naturals who want to keep their hair correct in a bomb protective style! Box braids are the perfect hair style that makes adding moisture a breeze. By using a plastic applicator tipped bottle filled with your favorite oils, you can safely and regularly moisturize your natural hair in a flash.

7 Hair Tips to Caring for Natural Hair

  1. FIRST THING’s FIRST – TRIM OFF THOSE RATTY DEAD ENDS. They will do nothing but continue to break up your hair shaft and tangle causing knots. The winter especially will take a toll on them. So choose health over length any day. Your detangling will also be a breeze!
  1. CLARIFY your hair! Yes I said it! CLARIFY! What most women don’t realize is the amount of build up their hair has been harboring. Usually people complain about having dry dull hair with curls that aren’t popping; what they don’t know is the overuse of products, oil’s  co-washing, silicones, butters, and gels have been culprits to dry hair. They will coat your hair shaft making it impossible for the proper moisture to penetrate. Once you have a fresh start your hair will thank you and you will be able to receive optimal moisture. Clarifying the hair naturally includes Apple cider vinegar or baking soda; or you can use a commercial shampoo. Google search different recipes and products to find the one best for you!
  1. MOISTURE IS KEY!! During the winter months and summer, your hair should be babied like never before! Use your favorite water based moisturizer; ones that contain glycerin (make sure it’s lower on the list in the winter. This is a super humectant and can counter act if too much is in a product) and natural oils.  Try to a avoid petrolatum and mineral oil in products. They DO NOT moisturize; they block moisture and coat your hair strands badly, resulting in dry scalp, brittle, and broken strands.
  1. Be sure to cover your curls with a wool, knitted hat, or scarf. They will help protect your hair from the cold air, wind, and snow. If    you can line your hats with silk/satin, buy them already made that way or put on a satin or silk bonnet or scarf under them, that’s an even a better way to go; as those materials can aid in drying your hair and induce breakage from possible rubbing.
  1. Wear protective or styles that require little maintenance.  Styles include braids, weaves, wigs,pin ups, twists, etc. Examples of low maintenance styles are twist and braid outs, Rod sets, buns, and chunky flat twists. These require styling more frequently than weaves or 2 strands but will still give you a week or so in between detangling. The more you handle your Hair, the more opportunity for breakage and unfortunately, the winter the weather is not on your hair’s side. So keep those ends tucked away.
  1. Spray your hair frequently with your favorite water based moisturizing and conditioning mix and deep condition every 2-3 weeks with your favorite moisturizing treatment.  This is a quick way to add moisture back into the hair.  Mist as often as you like, however, this method works best if you have a style such as a wig and braided or twisted extensions. If you have a style that you are trying to preserve, spray a liberal amount before styling and seal with an oil such as castor, jojoba, olive, or any natural oil close the the sebum produced by our scalps. You may add oil as much as you want as well. Deep condition consists on covering your hair with plastic after applying the product to clean hair and either sitting under a dryer for 20-30 mins or outside the dryer for an hour.
  1. Use less heat; it’s best to use no heat at all. If you are a natural that blowdries or flat iron, try to lay off of it. It sucks moisture out of hair and when coupled with cold dry hair it’s a breeding ground for breakage and fragile strands. If you continue to use heat try to limit yourself to 1 or 2 times per month.

Bonus tip

DRINK LOTS OF WATER! The same goes for all year round. If you are properly hydrated your hair will be too!

Although nothing is a guarantee that your hair will be safe from the winter’s wrath, hopefully these tips will work in some way. If you are already doing a lot of these, kudos for you! If not try to adopt some of it into your regimen.
