Hair Regimen

52 Weeks of Wash Day and Working Toward Waist Length Hair

wash day chronicles

As I shared in my 2014 Hair Lessons Learned post, I’ve had the goal of obtaining waist length hair for a couple of years now. My fine natural hair has been thru a few trials from small points of breakage to what appears to be stunted growth.

One of the things I’ve always been a fan of is tracking your hair care practices with a journal. I’ve done it for short periods of time in the past but never for as long as a year.

Well, as of this weekend I’ll be tracking what I’ll be doing to reach my goal of waist length hair by focusing on what goes down on wash day. Part of this tracking will be what I like to call #OperationScaleDownMyStash. I’ll share more about this in a future post.

For now, let’s focus on what I’ll be sharing for the next 52 weeks – a post each Monday which I will call Wash Day Chronicles: Week #.  I’ll be incorporating tried and true routines into my hair care like finger detangling and deep conditioning.

In my weekly posts I’ll share the products I use as well as the technique followed on wash day. My regimen will vary a little from time to time as I reach new discoveries. Also, I intend to record a video of my routine and progress but that may not happen each week. It all depends on the amount of time I have to record and edit. I’m also working on getting fit. This means more trips to the gym and less time to vlog and blog.

By the end of 2015 I hope to be a lot closer to my goal of waist length hair. So, if you’re interested in keeping track of my journey or at the very least coming along for the ride (I don’t expect it to be completely smooth sailing), subscribe to this blog here.

Stay tuned!
