We are finally becoming nestled into 2016. It seems like at the end of the year, every year, we reflect on what we’ve done, how we could have done things better, and of course we think about what we should have done. We remind ourselves of our goals and desires and how we came so close, yet still remained so far away, from achieving those things. For many of us naturalistas that often includes our hair goals. As we venture into 2016 here are some tips, or better yet my humble opinions, on how we can better handle our hair goals for the year.


Have you ever heard the phrase “My eyes were bigger than my stomach”? That statement is talking about food, however, that phrase can easily be used for other things in life too. We’ve all seen them on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. The women who have accomplished amazing feats of length and luscious flowing tresses in what seems to be a short amount of time. And all we have to do is…follow exactly what they did. Including how they did it. And don’t forget what they used to do it with. We give it 6 weeks and if that doesn’t seem to work we’re then on to the next one. The problem is one of two things. First, we probably did not access all the factors involved. Like do you have a similar hair type or are you using the exact product the exact same way. The other thing is has that person given you all the facts. Do they even know the facts about their hair and the products they use? It’s important for us to experiment and see what works for ourselves and not worry too much about the next head of hair on our radar. Make practical goals, like trying to attain healthy hair. Or even to try to formulate a schedule or hair care regimen that you can stick with.


Once you have figured out what goal you want to set for your hair, decide on the best way to keep on track. Maybe you can set a reminder on your planner or calendar of which days are wash days and on which days you need to do a little extra like a deep conditioning treatment or using a protein treatment. You can even find a wash day buddy. Which is someone who chooses to care for their hair on the same day you do. They can text you and remind you that it’s wash day. Or even accompany you to the salon for a deep conditioning treatment. Of course taking pictures is also a very simple way to keep track of how you are doing.


As with any goal there will always be setbacks. Some of them are minor and some of them are a little tougher to get over. There is no set in stone guide to beautiful healthy hair. For everyone that journey is different. Anyone who you see as being successful at anything had to stumble along the way. If you find something that works for you then great, but if it takes some trial and error then don’t spend too much time worrying about it. This too shall pass. Your hair will be fine and so will you.

“When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” -Confucius.
