Natural Hair care can be tricky by it is fun!
I recently went natural. Next month is my one year anniversary since my big chop. I mean I let it all hang out the day before Thanksgiving last year. Since then I have been self conscious, beating back desires to buy some creamy crack and praying that my hair grows fast. I still have a drawer full of drawstring ponytails that I cling to… but nevertheless.. I’ve held on for a year (well in November)…
Here are some pics:

How do I do it? Man I have no idea… but I do have a method that I used when I had a relaxer.. I find a hairstyle goal. I click a picture or download one off the internet of a hairstyle that I want and I place it somewhere visible so I can keep my goal in mind… perhaps I should do that with other things too.. let’s keep talking about the hair…
So I found a decent picture of Terry McMillian and she had a natural that was a SMART goal for me.. it was Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and TIMED… so I clipped the pic and now I have surpassed her length.. Needless to say, I need a new goal.. so I’ve been studying the lady on the new Charlie’s Angels show Annie Ilonzeh, and I really dig her curly ringlets..!!!
SO I’ve found a new goal.. I predict that I’ll reach her diameter by maybe March or April.. I love it!!! She’s got a really thick curly thing going on.. Maybe I’ll loose some weight too… well who knows… I just like her style.. so I’ll upload some pics of my new goal.. and some of my own..
This is my new goal for my HAIR!
