Challenges Begin

Hurraaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!! Our wait is over. Today and tomorrow mark the beginning of our challenges. Reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaady? Set? Goooooooooooooooooo!!

Have you got all your products and accessories needed to start these challenges? Have you tossed out all the bad tools and products you have? Have you changed your hair care routine to a healthier and more TLC inclined one? Have you really made up your mind and joined? Have you set goals; determined what you want to achieve at the end of the challenge?
Healthy hair care includes maintenance. Hair is fragile and subject to damage. But all is not lost. You can prevent further damage by using products and styling methods that protect the hair and mend damaged areas.

 Some things that may show you are ready:
a.    If the ends of your hair are weak and damaged, have you trimmed them off? Remember, our hair grows!!
b.    Have you cut down on using heat on your hair or stopped totally?
c.    Are you deep conditioning and doing protein treatments?
d.   Are you ready to wait 8 weeks or more between relaxers?
e.    Have you stopped using harsh products? Those that contain Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Petroleum Jelly, Parabens, Isopropyl Alcohol or SD Alcohol?
f.     Do you check the protein moisture balance of your hair?
g.    I f you intend to use growth aid, have you bought them already?
h.    Will you protective style most of the time?  
i.      Are you eating healthier, drinking lots of water (at least 2.2 litres everyday!) and exercising?

If your answer to half the questions above is YES, then you’re on your way to achieving the goals of the challenges! If not, there is still time.......anytime is good to start a hair journey. Today, tomorrow, next week, next month,......but don’t wait a year cos I will be 6 or more inches ahead of you by then and you may feel!! 


Don’t give up along the way. Invite friends, Challenge your friends and colleagues to these challenges. Let it get competitive and be determined to win!!

Consistency is key both in the use of products and in your hair care regimen. If your hair needs more moisture, tweak your regimen to be moisture intensive. Or is it protein? Do more protein treatments.

Remember everyone’s hair is different. It may take 1 month for someone to see results and take up to 6 or more for another to see results. Let's make better mistakes tomorrow. Don’t give up!!  

Wishing you all the best of luck on these challenges. I’m adding PRAYERS to my regimen...After all, it is God who gives..............!!
