Phro’s hair goal for 2012…what’s yours?


I hope 2011 was kind to you. I reached BSL and I’m really happy about that. What’s BSL you ask? It’s Bra-Strap Length.

My hair is certainly not all one length. My goal this year is to get my hair to a similar length. My shorter strands in the front, will catch up with the rest of my hair in 2012!

This is where I am right now!

This is where I want to be by the end of 2012!

My 2012 Hair Goal – Hair ONE Length

It’s longer, still looks really healthy, is similar texture to mine (so I know it’s attainable) and the hair at the front is just as long as the hair at the back. HERE’S TO HAIR THAT’S THE SAME LENGTH IN 2012

What will I be doing to ensure I get to this lenghth?

1. I will continue on the Back to Health challenge.

2. I will ensure that I moisturise my hair with a water based moisturiser so that my hair is always hydrated.

3. I will continue to seal with natural oils (coconut oil is my preferred oil).

4. I will not use heat on my hair (I will continue to wrap my hair).

5. I will probably have to look into styles that are lower manipulation than my current ‘Flexi Rod Curls’.

6. I will not braid or weave my hair

What are your hair goals ladies?

This was me in December 2010 and me in December 2011. The Back 2 Health Challenge has taken me this far!

    Hi I noticed you said you wont braid or weave your hair in 2012, does that affect hair growth? I keep my hair in braids or cornrows a minimum of 8 months a year.

    1. Hi Kudzi,
      Braiding and Weaving are great protective styles but have to be done right or you’ll experience more hair breakage and not realise growth. In the coming months, I’ll introduce a weave challenge to ensure ladies are doing it right.

      I’ve personally never had a weave and when I do braid, experience a lot of breakage, that’s why I’m keeping away from it. For me it’s personal preference.

    Hey phro!

    I didn’t know where to put this comment its not related to the post as such but anyway,I’ve been doing everything I can to get my hair healthy since I started my hair journey.and while my hairline is growing back in and my hair is nice and soft it won’t stop breaking.its growing and all but once I undo my weaves or big braids it breaks.I can’t figure out where I’m going wrong.

    Love the new hair btw:)

    1. Check out my posts on protective styles.

      There will be some form of breakage when you weave or braid your hair. I’ll be doing weave challenge really soon, so stay tuned and it may give you tips on taking care of your hair to minimise breakage. Also take a look at your products’ ingredients.
