5 Ways To Remain Happy During Your Hair Journey



1.) Stop comparing your journey to others- This may seem obvious, but so many people do it, I even admit to it. It's really hard not to, but you must realize that everyone's journey is different and no two heads of hair are the same.

2.) Stop trying to fix what's not broken-  You figured out your regimen, your hair is doing well and you are seeing some progress. Then why are you still trying new products, switching up your regimen and incorporating different techniques? I swear, sometimes we do the most and end up with a setback because of that. Trust me, hair grows...so if you see some progress and very little breakage(it's inevitable), you're on the right track


3.) Setting realistic goals- Listen! NOT EVERYONE'S HAIR GROWS 6" A YEAR. That may be the average, but it does not mean you will get that. That's number one. Also everyone's body is shaped differently, so the distance from one milestone to the next varies. We all need to take that into consideration and also factor in trims when setting length goals.
If length isn't your goal and it's about health, just know that it can take up to 3 months- 1 year to turn your hair from extremely damaged to healthy.

4.) Have FUN!!- Try different styles, join challenges, interact with others on blogs & forums, and just enjoy your hair at every stage.

5.) Realize that ANY setback is a set-up for a comeback- This is a learn as you go kind of journey. Yeah, you may have had a minor or major set-back, but I'm pretty sure you have learned from it and will bounce right back. It's okay to sulk for a little bit, but this is an opportunity to bounce back 10 fold


How do you stay encouraged during your hair journey?

    1. I agree, but if you're already getting constant good results, what's the point? Switching things up once in a while, I understand...but to be on a constant search for something better can sometimes cause more harm than good.

    "any setback is a set up for a comeback" I like this the most, because this journey is a learning curve. everyone has his ups and downs.

  6. Really good post!

    And really great blog! You are really right it is really good to try different hairstyles, and actually that is really working for me. Because of summertime and warm weather, I started doing buns as hairstyle,ans since then I released that it is the best way to retain the length and protect your ends. Indeed, in just one month my hair is quite longer... So during this summer I will forget extensions for a while ;)
