For day one of the #selfcarechallenge created by me, we need to set up a hair goal, I’m sure you already have your own hair goals but this should be a short-term that fits into your long-term goal.
There are many factors that play into successful goals and how to set and reach them. I recommend breaking the Month of July into 5 weeks and set your hair regimen for each week and ensuring you do something to contribute to your hair goals. For example if you want your hair to grow that means your ultimate goal is Long Hair, to achieve that you should set short terms goals such as keeping protective styles and low manipulations styles for 1-2 weeks and just moisturising it. Low manipulations hairstyles can take a long time and it requires patience but you can do it.
If you have a goal of reducing shedding perhaps you could commit 4 weeks to a method and see if it works, you could try Tea Rinses and Rice Water and see if the shedding is reduced.
For this month I want to create DIY hair mask for every wash day, I deep condition every time I wash my hair as I find it works best for my hair otherwise my hair is super dry and rough. I will post about the mask I’ll do. I usually alternate between a nourishing mask, moisturising and strengthening mask. My ultimate goal is healthy hair & growth , and my hair is the healthiest when is nourished from inside out. Proper Hydration is imperative for hair growth and length retention.
Let me know what your hair goal for the month is, remember to keep it realistic and do not put too much pressure on yourself. I recommend getting a journal where you can document your journey – your frustrations, your small achievements and products who work and do not work .
