Summer Goals Recap

I totally forgot about my summer goals, quiet as its kept! I was reminded by two bloggers who looked back on their goals to see if they made it … so in the spirit of completion, I thought I would a quick check-in and see how I did!

For the most part, I did well with my summer goals.

1. Get to MBL! This is the ultimate goal. I do not mean just a few scraggly hairs, either, I mean a good portion of my lower layers (meh, I will take 20%).

Kind of … I did a lot of trimming this summer. I got to MBL in my longest parts … I can’t say for sure if it was 20%!

2. Continue to grow out my front. It is a few inches past my chin, right at my shoulder (HOORAY … I am full-SL hahahahha!)

I did! I will have to take a picture for comparison’s sake.

3. Use the L-O-C method to improve moisture retention.

I did this only on air-dried hair. If I would have done it on hair that was roller-set, it would be a soggy, limp mess. But nevertheless, I did it!

4. Use only one heat pass for length check in mid-July (if I so desire)

Since June, I have flat-ironed my hair once (for my August 2013 relaxer) and used the blow dryer on my entire length twice.

5. Pre-poo with ceramides weekly


6. DRINK at least 60 ounces of water a day (sigh … I will accept 4/7 days on this one!)

Done … kind of phoned it in in September.

7. Dust only once this relaxer period (search and destroy sessions for overgrown hairs are OK)

Did NOT do. I dusted more because my hair needed it. Oh well. Scraggly ends are a no-go for me.

8. Protective style 80% of the time


9. Maintain my hair’s gorgeous thickness! ;)

Well, done for the most part … there was some autumn shedding I had to contend with.

10. Apply clear semi-permanent color late June/early July to help with ends

Did this in late June and mid-September.
