It’s important to set hair goals while on your hair journey. Setting goals provides you with a sense of direction and you know what areas to tackle and set your attention on. In the beginning of my hair journey I just wanted long healthy hair as quickly as possible. I deep conditioned endlessly in hopes that, overnight; my hair would magically become healthy. I applied tons of growth aids to my scalp nightly in hopes that I would see inches of new growth the next day. Anxiety and impatience took over. I felt discouraged as a result of not having realistic goals. Unfortunately, I suffered a setback that caused me to start from scratch. From my setback I learned a few tips to help me stay focused and set realistic goals for myself.
