21 Hair Questions Tag

Came across this Hair Tag on Pound Cake by way of JGA and thought it would be fun to do.  I don't have anyone to tag though since I'm new to blogging and have no followers yet. LOL! But hey why not? Maybe one day. If anyone comes across this on my page, please feel free to participate.  Tag you're it! :)

1. Why did you start taking better care of your hair?
I've always wanted long hair and had it for a while, but then started having to trim it because of constant damage.  One day I just started googling about hair steamers and I came across several blogs of ladies who had the same desire as me. Long healthy relaxed hair.  It started with Nadege at Relaxed Hair Health and then Jeni at Just Grow Already, and many others.  All of these women have been an inspiration to me.  They proved that it can be done no matter how many people(or professional stylists rather) tell you that you can't.

2. What are your 2 favorite hair products?
I am loving me some Kera Pro Restorative Treatment and Organix Coconut Milk Anti-breakage serum for sealing. 

3. Who's hair did you admire as a child?
My aunt Stephanie.  When me hair was longer (during high school) she and I used to compete on who had the longest hair.  Of course she won! It's still long and healthy to this day.

4. What is your ultimate goal length?
I think I would be happy at BSL
5. How are you going to celebrate when you reach your ultimate goal length?
Maybe I'll do a "hair" photo shoot! Ha! I know I want to go show it off to those who said it wasn't possible! ;)

6. Two styles you want to try at your goal length?
Roller set and probably and long french braid.  I saw Jeni's on JGA and was SOOOO envious! 

7. Which do you prefer: Health or Length?
Health of course. Who wants to have ugly long hair?  I've seen some people try to rock that. It doesn't work. Ijs...

8. Which do you prefer: hair ties with no metal parts or butterfly clips?
I guess I'll say hair ties...haven't found my fave hair accessory yet. Butterfly clips are sometimes uncomfortable.
9. What products do you prefer: salon brands, organic brands, BSS brands, Drugstore brands, or other?
I don't yet have a preference.  Anything that helps with my hair health is fine by me.

10. Which product/technique do you think is over-rated?
Can't think of anything here...

11. Which product/technique do you think is under-rated?
Moisturizing and sealing.  Many don't realize the importance of it and what it does for the health of your hair.  I had no idea until I started my journey.

12. What is your favorite part of your hair regimen?
My wash days.  I love when my hair is freshly washed and not too oily.  It's all soft and bouncy. :)

13. What is the most annoying part of your hair regimen?
Also my wash day...jumping in and out of the shower multiple times to do this that and the other. Apply rinse, apply rinse, apply sit under the dryer.  Lol!  Still tweaking my regimen though.

14. Oils or Butters?
Oils...haven't tried butters but sounds thicker than I'd like.  I have thin hair so thick things will weight it down and make it look thinner.

15. Buns or Ponytails?
Not quite long enough for a bun yet, but when I am this will be my go to protective style.

16. Wigs or Weaves?
Neither for me.  I think I'd look funny in a wig and I'm not a fan of these or weaves personally

17. What is your opinion of growth aids?
If it works go for it

18. At what length do you consider hair long?
BSL....even APL is pretty long to me
19. When is the last time you visited a salon?
In September 2012 I believe and I was very disappointed; No offense but the stylist did not want to listen to what I wanted but argued with me about doing a regular wrap because I didn't want a flat iron used on my hair.

20. What do you like to surf most often: YouTube channels, personal blogs, or hair forums?
Personal blogs and I do occassionally what how to videos on YouTube

21. And finally, what piece of advice would you give to someone just starting out on their hair journey?
Learning to be patient and always put hair health before length.  It'll all come in due time. That's what I'm telling myself anyway. :)
