Bringing in 2014!!! Last post in 2013: Dec goals recap, Jan goals, relaxer update, goals for the new year, etc (LONG POST with PICTURES)

Hello, and happy New Year's Eve!!! I hope y'all are being safe. I am at home and in the process of washing my hair. I am going into the new year with clean hair lol. I wanted to update you on a few things.

1. My December goals were a bust. I didn't follow one goal. Lol. 

2. I have a couple of January goals: 
-use castor at least 80 percent of the month. Roughly, that's 25 days. 
-hide my hair 25 days of the month of January. 
Simple enough, right? 

3. When you click onto my blog, you will see a list of monthly goals for my hair. 
I will do my absolute best to follow this list. Overall, I am trying to retain length and keep my hands out of my hair as much as possible. 

4. I relaxed my hair a few weeks ago. The relaxer turned out ok. 
No length check was done with this relaxer, but I did not gain much length, if any. I was turned off from checking. I didn't want to be disappointed. 

5. How is my hair now? I am suffering from thinning on my left side. It is very clear when I did a length check a couple of days ago. 

One side looks closer to BSL than the other side. My goal: to grow it out without evening it. I rather allow all of my hair to grow to AT LEAST full APL before evening my hair. I am not expecting even my hair out until May or June. 

6. A hair goal of mine for 2014 is to only get 3 relaxers the entire year. I do not have a clear idea when these relaxers will take place. The reason for this goal is because I want to try to eliminate the thinness I suffer from when I relax. Which leads me to......

7. I am considering transitioning to texlaxed hair. I am despising my flat hair. I am despising straight hair. I do not want to be natural, but I am over being bone straight. I am going to have my mind made up by my next relaxer which is months from now. 

8. My mother's hair has good days and bad days. My mom refuses to nap with a bonnet on, and her edges and sides are suffering. It's like once I get it growing good, she will set herself back. It gets so frustrating and I cannot stress the importance of stop sleeping without a bonnet. But I cannot let herack of discipline weigh heavy on me, because the weight can be excruciating. My mother and I work at the same job. My mom goes to bed at night without trying to prep her hair for the next day. When she is up, I'm not up yet. We work entirely different shifts. But when I finally get to work and see how careless she is by allowing herself to go to work with her a complete disaster is heartbreaking. I try to talk to her, but it does no good. :-( 

9. A couple of months ago, I showed pix of how horrible my hair area looked in my room. Here are those pix from the past. 

Well, after months or purging and working, I was not able to get rid as many products as I would have. So, I became a tad bit more organized and bought another storage container. 
This is where ALL of my hair products are located. There are none in different spots in my room. It's all contained here. It's organized and clean. I am so proud of myself for getting a better handle on my overflowing problem. I refuse to have to buy a third one lol. 

10. Finally, I was featured!!! I submitted my hair story to Jen from Just Grow Already or JGA. I absolutely love reading her blog. I am a faithful reader, lol. I was so happy to my story on her page. Please read my featured hair story when you click this link (Meet Alexis). Thank you so much, Jen, for featuring me. I am a huge fan.

I have tons of resolutions: hair related, life related, charity related, etc. I am not sure what I am trying to accomplish in the new year. I am not sure if I will even meet a single goal and/or resolution. Something about goals and resolutions give me something to look forward to. I have not met ANY in the past, but that is no reason for me not to try again this year, and maybe next year.

I will everyone who reads this a prosperous new year. I pray that each of you gain much wealth, hair length and hair health. Lol. 2013 has been a battle. However, I am closing the chapter on another year. The first page of my new book starts tomorrow, and I am promising myself that every day-slash-page will be full of me giving my all and working my butt of for ALL of goals, not just the hair related or the school related ones.

I am wishing you all many blessing in the new year,

Happy New Year, hair lovers!!!
