With the new year upon us, I thought it would be nice to share what you want to achieve with your hair in 2010!

I'll start..
1. Try to stop heat styling.
2. Try the CG method.
3. NO SCISSORS (I might do a final trim sometime this week)
4. More updos.
5. Reach BSL..maybe even waist!:D

So ladies and gentlemen..what are your hair goals for the new year?:cheese:

December 10th, 2009, 05:55 PM
The last two years I've only trimmed once a year, so in 2010 I'm going to try micro trimming and hopefully reach waist by the end of the year with a thicker hemline.

December 10th, 2009, 05:58 PM
Using LHC's help/info. to get my hair in better condition.
To get some pics of my hair posted.
To get an avatar.
To acquire some great hair toys.

December 10th, 2009, 05:58 PM
No trims- My mullet chop is coming Monday dont worry I'll post pictures.
I want to try henna
APL by next Christmas:pray:
SMT at least twice a month

December 10th, 2009, 06:03 PM
To reach waist! :D And hopefully further.

December 10th, 2009, 06:04 PM
Reach tailbone
trim off the last of the damage from my dark brown hair dye adventures. (not going to happen, but I can dream. :p)
possibly experiment with henna, if i ever decide that I won't look horrible as a redhead.
deep condition more than once a month

December 10th, 2009, 06:15 PM
1.) Get to 26" (February or so)
2.) Trim regularly to thicken hemline
3.) Try/consider 28" with a thicker hemline
4.) Enjoy my new long hair!

December 10th, 2009, 06:16 PM
I think I want to do at least 3 of these for 2010!

-grow to at least classic and finally get rid of my old black dye bit (about 4-6inches I think now)
-perfecting the blunt trim on myself every 2+ months(less then 1/4in each time)
-use shampoo bars/vinegar rinse (my 3 CV bar samples just came in!)
-Learn many hair dos to do on myself (98% of my being awake involves my hair being free-flowing currently)
-Make/find some hair oil (more variation that works for me)
-get to only washing once a week (I am at every 3rd day(not including wash day) or every 4 days depending on how you look at it)
-find a good way to dry shampoo that works for me
-do some deep conditioning treatments...(should also get a night cap for such days) :)
-massage scalp at least 5 times a week...I am so bad about that!

That should keep me busy I hope :D

December 10th, 2009, 06:21 PM
This year, I want to grow out some breakage from bunning, see if the hair on the sides of my temples will actually grow, instead of getting annoyed and chopping it off, and hopefully reach APL curly.

It'd be nice if I could grow out my bangs long enough to reshape them. ): They're cut so ******n oddly.

December 10th, 2009, 06:43 PM
1. No trimming until mid-September 2010. I hope I get to shoulder length, or close. :pray:

2. Getting rid of the perfectionism habit. :rolleyes: Which means keeping hair clean, moisturized, protected from the elements, and not worrying about it otherwise.

3. Eating well, getting exercise, taking vitamins to keep myself and my hair healthy.

December 10th, 2009, 06:51 PM
My goal:
Reach tailbone with healthy(er) ends. I'm only a couple inches away right now, but it is going slowly because I've been trimming a lot to get rid of damage.

December 10th, 2009, 06:55 PM
1) Find out why my hair falls out so much.

2) Make my hair thicker(scalp massage, rogaine, I don't know :rolleyes:)

3 )Now that my hair is even refrain from any major trimming(microtrimming is necessary, and okay)

4) If I make it back to BSL--refrain from cutting

5 )Not worry about my hair so much

December 10th, 2009, 06:55 PM
1. Figure out where to get a better pair of S&D scissors
2. Grow to knee length (and keep it blunt) by the end of 2010

December 10th, 2009, 07:01 PM
My goals (currently) are:
-Make it to waist.
-Get rid of layers.
-Obtain some nice hair toys.

December 10th, 2009, 07:13 PM
- to trim hair as little as possible throughout the year
- hopefully do one oil treatment and one conditioning treatment with Roux Porosity Control a week
- continue on 5 mg of Biotin
- absolutely stay away from anything with any form of protein for the whole year

December 10th, 2009, 07:21 PM
I had one main goal for this year, and I think I'm going to be able to claim it as met: APL!

My dream for 2010 is to keep my hair in the best condition possible to minimize trimming-- and end up around BSL by this time next year. Is that feasible? lol... If it's possible at all, then that's my goal for the year.

I don't think I trimmed at all this year, though... I may need to before long. We'll just see how it goes! I'm out for length at the moment. :p

ETA: I wonder if I ought to go ahead and do a microtrim before the New Year, and then make 2010 an OFFICIAL no-trimming year... This deserves some thought.

December 10th, 2009, 07:24 PM
- I want to try and go at least to May with no trims. I'm growing out layers so this might be a tough one.
- I really need to stop heat styling. I've cut down dramatically, but I still blowdry sometimes, and even more rarely, I "fix" my ends with a flat iron.
- buy my first "official" hairtoy. I have some cheap ones but they aren't strong or big enough to hold most of my hair up anyway.
- longest layer to BSL and beyond :D

December 10th, 2009, 07:35 PM
Cut of all of my damaged ends so I have a head full of healthy hair to start growing.

December 10th, 2009, 07:37 PM
1. Keep eating healthy and exercising. I know it helps me in terms of my image and not cutting my hair

2. No trims!! I am getting one final dusting in January before I move but that's it.

3. To regularly oil and not just once in a while.

4.To find a washing routine that works for me.

5. Finally with all of this to reach waist length! I don't know if that's possible but I sure am going to give it my all.

December 10th, 2009, 07:49 PM
S&D all the damage that happened when I went to Aveda... and get the hair feeling healthy again. Sigh... stupid stupid stupid, it was so nice before I had to mess with it!

December 10th, 2009, 07:52 PM
1. Reach waist length
2. Thicken hair (more massaging, nutritious foots, etc)
3. Not dye hair at all with any chemical dyes

December 10th, 2009, 07:55 PM
I've gone one year with no cuts at all, only S&Ding for splits on occasion. This was mostly to break me of the constantly cutting my hair habit. Still, the girl that cut my hair last December did a better job than anyone I've ever had before and I think her expert hands plus my improved knowledge and care of my hair helped me get to this year mark without twitching every time I look at my hair. So, in about a week I'm going back to her and getting some light layers put back in (helps with my curls), my bangs cut back to my chin (softens my face), and getting about two of the four or five inches I grew this year taken off (ick!).

Then, I'm HOPING to go another year without another cut, with the first six months being that I have my hair down more! I don't know what my issue is with having it up all the time now that it's long! I'm going to try to be as good to my hair as I can be and hopefully get to twenty-nine inches come next cut time!

December 10th, 2009, 07:56 PM
My goals for 2010 regarding my hair are;

1) leave my 20's and go into my 30's as in inches & hopefully reach a solid waist (more would be nice:))

2) to continue daily light coconut oilings to my last 3"

3) To bun hair daily

4) To continue with twice a week DC

4) To only trim twice a year & only a total of 1" maximum

5) To keep straighteners to the minimum

6) to continue with my highlights, I only have roots done 3 times a year

7) To not attempt to s&d as it drives me mad!

8) To continue with CO washes, with just one diluted poo a week

9) To add to my hair toy collection

10) To learn a new bun a week!

Thats all folks!:cool:

December 10th, 2009, 08:03 PM
Let it grow. I'm fairly maintenance free as it is. And I like setting goals I know I can achieve.

December 10th, 2009, 08:50 PM
1. To get back to hip length.

2. To work on using up more of the product stash.

3. Get more Ficcares.

4. To keep on improving my hemline and horizontal volume.

December 10th, 2009, 08:52 PM
1. Waist
2. 6 month Updo Challange!!!
3. More deep oilings...once a week atleast

December 10th, 2009, 09:01 PM
1. stop being lazy about S&D, do it at least once a week
2. I'd love to reach classic length, idk if it's possible this year but I'll make it a goal anyway

Wicked Princess
December 10th, 2009, 09:11 PM
This is a great thread! :D New Years resolutions for hair!

1. For my hair-length to to reach top of thighs.
2. Once I reach that length, begin maintaining at this point length until my strange layers are gone.
3. Buy myself a couple of high quality hair sticks, and a quality brush.

December 10th, 2009, 09:13 PM
I'd like have a blunt(er) hemline at full waist or maybe approaching hip. So, I need to start trimming my layers here soon. I am also considering growing out my bangs, so I guess my goal for that is to make a decision about my bangs and go for it.

December 10th, 2009, 10:10 PM
My 2010 goal is to focus on enjoying my hair, and not stress over length gained. No plans to change my routine - what I'm doing now seems to work. CWC, henna monthly, trim/shape as needed.

Heavenly Locks
December 10th, 2009, 10:13 PM

For next year, I basically want to keep doing what I've been doing.
CO mostly. Combing and protective styles.

My biggest goal is to get to hip/TB by the end of 2010!! (for me, that is a mere 6 inches from waist! yay short people!) I am currently just brushing waist...

December 10th, 2009, 10:15 PM
Well I'm at "can I call this waist" barely while in the shower so I should be reaching waist very very soon... That being said my goals for 2010

-keep wearing my hair up
-learn more up dos
-slowly keep trimming off the damaged hair (over 1/2 of the length is damaged from hair dye so its a long process)
-might maintain at waist for awhile to cut off damage/thicken up the hem, not sure about this yet.
-be better about S&Ding

December 10th, 2009, 10:40 PM
1. No scissors (at least until July or so)- I've decided I'll worry about split ends later. :P
2. Wear hair up more to avoid breakage and to avoid playing with it.
3. Grow hair to APL or longer. This in-between SL and BSL is killing me!
4. No dyeing or straightening.

December 10th, 2009, 10:46 PM

December 10th, 2009, 10:47 PM
1. Get to classic by the end of the year...if thats possible...maybe...?
2. Remember that olive oil is my holy grail. Coconut oil, not so much
3. Make time (at least monthly) for SMTs
4. Use my hairtoys evenly, and try not to favor certain ones c:

December 10th, 2009, 10:52 PM
1. Let my hair grow!
2. Get through the awkward above shoulder phase.
3. Wait as long as possible before getting a trim (earliest trim in May)
4. Avoid heat styling at all costs.
5. Make peace with my natural hair texture.

December 10th, 2009, 11:56 PM
1. Reach mid-thigh length
2. Do just microtrims and only when it's really needed
3. Continue COing
4. Try to cause the least demage to my hair

Gothic Lolita
December 11th, 2009, 12:02 AM
-be at mid-butt by May, because there is a family meet and 95% are going to see me for the first time ever!
-use either soapnuts or a special shampoo to fight the shedding
-henna gloss a bit more frequently
-defintitely learn a few new buns, since Cinnamon, Chinese and all the basics are boring!

December 11th, 2009, 12:20 AM
well... I just cut off 4" of hair. I was at about 29" so I'm now at 25" (went from just below BSL to just at BSL). My hair has lost a lot of the bad ends, splits, etc... so...

#1: Use the comb to detangle, not the brush, sheesh!
#2: Worry less about quantity (length) and more about quality! so it's not waist, it's HEALTHY!

December 11th, 2009, 01:13 AM
1. no trimming
2. reach waist by the end of 2010.
3. improve my braiding skills :)

December 11th, 2009, 01:21 AM
I want more U and less V in my hemline, which should thicken up the ends a bit. Hopefully I will reach my final goal in 2010, which is slightly short of classic, but I seem to be in a bit of a stall. More henna, no dye.

December 11th, 2009, 02:01 AM
1) Getting control of trichotillomania and put it back to hibernating state (and preferably it will never wake up again!)

2) Grow healthy hair with the help of ascorbic acid rinses and no protein hairproducts plus ofcourse gentle care and lots of moisture.

3) Learn to love ALL of my hair, even the coarse, wiry ones.

4) Getting thyroid levels checked

5) Trim moderately to get rid of henna, to let the the new and shorter hairs a chance to catch up and to keep the hemline neat.

6) No more S&D crazyness. It's only allowed after a trim once every 3 months or so.

7) Maybe, just maybe, if my hair keeps growing like it has been the last couple of months, I could reach BSL by the end of the year?

December 11th, 2009, 02:10 AM
1. Occasional trims to thicken my hemline and grow out dye/damage/layers.
2. Maybe get to hip length or even TBL with the trims? I might maintain at waist length, though. Depending on how my hair is looking I may let it grow longer and maintain there for now.
3. More deep conditioning treatments. I get so lazy that I just don't do them. :(
4. Hair toys! All I have for hair toys right now are one cheap plastic hair stick, and some hair forks I made by bending knitting needles. :P I would like to buy at least one nice one.
5. Learn more buns/updos. I only know a small handful right now.

I'm sure there's more, but that's all I can think of for now.

December 11th, 2009, 03:56 AM
I hope to achieve these goals in 2010 :)

1. To reach waist length :)
2. To try out feyes self trim method successfully
3. To try a SMT
4. Eat well, keep healthy and worry less
5. Build up my hair toy collection
6. Learn more hairstyles

December 11th, 2009, 04:35 AM
1. Reach BSL+
2. Get blonder hair (maybe strawberry blonde)
3. learn at least 3 new up-do's, and mastering the sock bun. :D
4. Find a solution for preventing winter-damage and dryness
5. Try herbal rinses

December 11th, 2009, 05:11 AM
1.Getting rid of the last two inches of dye
2.Thickening the hemline by dusting
3.Hopefully getting a little faster growing through healthy food and drinking enough
4.Then maybe reaching midback or even waist:)

December 11th, 2009, 05:29 AM
-get to comfortably at waist and with any luck get to hip by the end of next year (fingers crossed).
-wear braids more.
-keep to my healthy hair rules (no heat ect)

December 11th, 2009, 05:58 AM
Hm, hip should be achievable, I hope. I'm close to waist now, and hip and waist are pretty close to each other on me. I also want to improve my braiding skills, and otherwise just keep doing what I do (which is not a lot ;))

December 11th, 2009, 06:16 AM
I am getting professionally cut on Saturday (about 3 inches or so) so I will be starting out the year with healthier hair, previously I had gone over a year

Oil more regularly
be more gentle and patient with my tangles
Use coney condish (Aussie) every 3 days or so to keep tangles at bay
Get trimmed professionally about every 6 months or so at least (1 year is way too long for me to go)

Maintain a blunt hemline (don't like the scraggly ends that my layers give)

December 11th, 2009, 06:54 AM
- no trims - learn to braid my hair

December 11th, 2009, 06:54 AM
- reach hip length
- grow out my natural hair colour
- get my short layers longer

December 11th, 2009, 07:02 AM
1) reach BSL
2) resist temptation to dye/highlight
3) buy better combs
4) more pretty hairsticks!

December 11th, 2009, 07:31 AM
1. Find a way to keep it moisturized through the length.
2. Find a way to keep my scalp cleaner.
3. Wear it up more to protect it.
4. Because of 3, get 2 or 3 more hairtoys. :D
5. Reach 40" by year's end.

Oh, and 6. Help my daughter learn to take better care of her hair. :)

Grow hair, grow! :cheer:

December 11th, 2009, 07:46 AM
1. This coming year I will reach tailbone.
2. Continue to henna & indigo.
3. Wear hair up more at work.
4. Eat healthier.

Can't think of anything else! Woo hoo 2010! The zeros are almost over :joy:

December 11th, 2009, 08:02 AM
My goals are:
to grow to BSL (maybe waist...we'll see :D)
to get rid of my horrible layers
to trim only 1-2 times a year (so far, I haven't cut my hair in four months )

December 11th, 2009, 08:08 AM
1. Get to BSL (I hope :cheese:)
2. No more dying, highlighting or trimming;
3. CO only;

akka naeda
December 11th, 2009, 08:30 AM
1. ends to be reasonably thick (ii and blunt rather than i and fairytale) at calf
2. henna to have grown out/white hair to have grown in to BSL or possibly waist.
3. to have acquired the elusive grey border Maximas that Ficcare never seem to have in stock when I have the money to buy it:D

December 11th, 2009, 08:32 AM
1. Reach APL (I'm still kind of a shorty)
2. Continue with henna/indigo instead of chemical hair dye
3. Get braided at the Ren Faire this summer

December 11th, 2009, 08:39 AM
1) If possible and not at terminal, grow the two inches that I have left to knee.
2) Maintain at knee and let the ends thicken a bit. Thus actually trim more.
3) Train myself to stop measuring.... It's becoming a bad somewhat obsessive habit.
4) Organize hairtoys, separate ones that I don't use and could be given a new home.

December 11th, 2009, 08:49 AM
I don't really have many specific goals...I think I've reached the ones I really REALLY wanted, for the most part. Which were to find a good routine for my hair, and to try to maintain a full hemline and go longer. I've done all of that so far. There's nothing new I'm curious about trying, and I blame that on newbie-fever (I tried so much stuff right at first when I joined up. :p). I'm noticing a tiny bit of taper, but then again in less than three inches, I'll be at mid-thigh length, so that's probably to be expected. I'm keeping it blunt for now, and still seem to be gaining as much length as usual, so I'm ok with it. :)

So I guess my goals are to continue with what I've been doing this year, and see how much longer it is by the time we're ready for our "2011 Hair Goals" thread. :cheese:

December 11th, 2009, 08:57 AM
1. No cutting till september 2010, that will make a year of no cutting.
2. Make it to BSL by September 2010
3. Keep forgetting about my hair.
4. maybe see what my natural color looks like.

December 11th, 2009, 09:32 AM
- Get past waist!
- Get rid of at least my longest layer
- Catnip at least once a month
- Stretch out WO washes
- Learn more updos

December 11th, 2009, 09:36 AM
I want to reach BSL when curly, AND trim off some dead ends. I'm sure it will be possible because I am already very close to BSL :)

December 11th, 2009, 09:43 AM
BSL by next Christmas!!!

December 11th, 2009, 09:45 AM
This coming year I hope to:

-reach my goal length, doing minimal trims (probably by around July)

-maintain at this length and trim off as much old dye as possible

-get better at updos, and be able to use my new hair toys more

December 11th, 2009, 10:07 AM
1. Gain at least 6 more inches (preferably more)
2. Resist the urge to get a dramatic cut
3. Learn to love the hair nature gave me

December 11th, 2009, 10:19 AM
Good thread. I hope to do the following.

- Continue CWC, oiling and regular deep oiling the night before wash day.
- Continue to wear up most of the time to protect it.
- Learn more buns/styles.
- Get more and better pictures, both updo's and down to keep records of where I am.
- Make and try some of the recipes, such as SMT & Fox's Shea Butter Conditioning Cream
- Try to get more length with a nice hemline.
- Try to be patient with myself and my hair as I grow out pre-LHC treated hair.

December 11th, 2009, 10:28 AM
No More layers! Just some tiny occasional microtrims. I want to get to TB.

Find a shampoo routine that works.

Go natural with my salt and pepper. This time when the henna runs out Im not buying anymore .... hopefully anyway :o

December 11th, 2009, 10:34 AM
To reach TB without the heavy layering I have now...... not sure if I want NO layers, but if I keep *some* they will be a very little at the bottom.........

to put numbers to it.... about 8 inches of growth for my longest length, then maintain while I catch everything else up....... I prob won't make it 100%, but I should get close......

December 11th, 2009, 11:06 AM
-Find a good routine. I'd like to try shampoo bars, and if that doesn't work I might give soap nuts or WO another go.
-Thicken up hemline

I'd love to get to classic, but as I am just shy of tailbone right now, I doubt that is realistic. So maintaining and thicken up hemline it is.

December 11th, 2009, 11:06 AM
Just seeing if it grows more than this, maybe to mid thigh...who knows?

December 11th, 2009, 11:13 AM
same stuff I have been doing really

*no sissors (except bangs and maybe start micro trimming after reaching BSL, to get rid of remaining bleach damaged hair and even up hemline)

*little heat (flat iron no more then 1x/month

*continue with CO and weekly shampoo

* weekly SMT

*grow fabulous (BSL+) hair..(this is uncharted hair growth territory folks)

*im going to add a currant/photoshop comparrison picture so I can see how accurate I am....


December 11th, 2009, 11:21 AM
My goals are:
Grow to around 40", (3.75 more inches! Woot!) and maintain, getting rid of all my layers.
Possibly get back to my natural color.. lol
SMT twice a month
Coconut oil, and Protein leave in every time I wash, as my hair loves both.
Try to lay off the S&D'ing too much as the last two years of dyeing it all the time has taken it's toll.

December 11th, 2009, 11:31 AM
- Learn at least three new buns
- Learn how to french braid! I love how they look but am so imcompetent with braids...
- Deep condition at least once a month

December 11th, 2009, 11:52 AM
1) Get rid of the last of my layers!
I trimmed an inch an a half of a few days ago (aurgh!), so I'm firmly back to BSL again (though it feels like SL!), but my layers are now only one more similar trim away from being gone! :)

2) Reach waist length!
About 34" on me - should take about eight months, plus another three months for aforementioned trim, so hopefully by this time next year I'll be all one length, thick hemline, at waist. :) And then on to hip and TB! (2011 goals anyone?)

3) Try an SMT
I've been putting it off, silly of me I know. Maybe as a post-party season hair treat in January.

4) Don't get so behind with S&D missions
I went for about 3 months without S&Ding this autumn - it's been a busy semester. I'm paying for it now. :(

December 11th, 2009, 12:08 PM
My goal is to have blunt ends at the tailbone level:)

December 11th, 2009, 12:08 PM
Reach healthy, pretty well hemmed (eg all same length, apart from slight face framing or something) APL hair.

No more straightening.

Come up with a daily hairstyle, which I can become adept at and will hold for sports.

At least once have hair up and whilist walking in the street simply shake it down and let it free- :D childhood dreams!

December 11th, 2009, 12:11 PM
1) Have a trim for health and maybe another later on in the year, to get rid of layers

2) Switch to soapnuts, ACV and coconut oil.

3) Do first SMT.

4) Learn new updoes.

5) Hopefully reach waist, with healthier hair!

December 11th, 2009, 12:24 PM
1. Find a stylist who can work with my goals and lessen damage!
2. Invest in a couple of hair toys instead of just looking all the time
3. Be more creative with updos
4. Get rid of splits
5. Continue to shape into deep U
6. And as a result of the above goals, reach waist!

December 11th, 2009, 12:46 PM
Grow some more white hair?
I guess thats a doable one for me :lol:

(:wink: Im really bad in setting hair-goals.)

December 11th, 2009, 12:51 PM
- No colouring
- No new dreadlocks
- No brushing
- Cassia once a month

December 11th, 2009, 12:59 PM
I'm so close to knee it's killing me! I'm going to try to stick to microtrims every 5 weeks (I've been slack in writing it down, so then I have to guess). Once I reach definitive knee-length, I may consider maintaining to soften the U of my hemline (I want just enough curve so it's not exactly blunt) and to thicken the ends if they don't improve. I want to do "treatments" more often, like soaking in mayonnaise or Mane n Tail. I also need to learn more updos, which I always do anyway, but as soon as I get comfortable with a few good ones, I grow out of them!

I can't really control how fast my hair grows, but I'd like to make tailbone.

My plan is to just keep doing what I've been doing. No big rules.

December 11th, 2009, 01:59 PM
1. Get to classic (so close!)
2. Take more pictures of my hair
3. Do more frequent honey treatments
4. Be brave enough to bite the bullet and try henna
5. Microtrim every 10-12 weeks or so
6. A thicker hemline

December 11th, 2009, 02:39 PM
>>Reach waist (and possibly maintain here to cut off damaged ends and excessive taper)
>>Continue growing out natural hair colour
>>Get new hairtoys (I'm outgrowing what I have, and soon will have none)
>>Wear hair up most of the time
>>Use up all the current haircare products I have before buying more, no matter how much I want it

December 11th, 2009, 03:24 PM
1. Get as close to waist as possible. (Bottom BSL is realistic.)
2. Acquire more beautiful hair-toys.
3. Drink a lot more water.
4. Hmmm...find my own vitamin mix..and actually remember to take them.

December 11th, 2009, 03:44 PM
Grow to mid back(or just above waist) while slowly trimming away layers for a more blunt hemline. Also to continue growing out some of my bangs.

December 11th, 2009, 03:58 PM
1. Make it to BSL by June. Maybe waist by the end of the year. I know that is very unrealistic though.

2. Trim out the damage at some point :(

3. Deep condition at least once a month.

4.Learn how to do my hair by myself.

5. Buy pretty hairtoys.

December 11th, 2009, 04:20 PM
I'm an overexcited newbie but I'm going to start with only a couple manageable things
a) no more bleaching
b) no more hairdryer
c) try henna while it's still short
d) trim when needed, but no hacking off chunks

December 12th, 2009, 12:06 AM
Reach waist officially! (30")
Start micro-trimming away damage.
Grow out outer edges of bangs so they can be ponied.
Match growing out chemically treated length with roots. (Henna dying)
Improve condition of hair through continued gentle treatment.
Try using wide-tooth combs.

Welp! I have managed to go this whole year without getting a trim and guess what? It grew! I think I'm going to go another year without trimming because I really don't have any split ends. I'll only do it if absolutely necessary but I won't do it out of boredom! I don't really think I will need to though. Funny..it seems like growing from BSL to waist took MUCH longer then from waist to tailbone. Even though bsl to waist is a shorter distance. I'm sure its from avoiding unnecessary trims and not checking the length 10 times a day because I was actually pretty busy.
I would really like to wear my hair down and enjoy it being down. I swear the last time i wore it down out was in like..august and that was only for a little bit of time. I don't wanna be paranoid about damage when i wear it down!
I would like to learn more up dos as well since i only know like 3 and always end up wearing the 1 lazy bun. I want to keep doing scalp massages even if they make my scalp a bit greasy..sometimes even using oil for them a little bit before i shower. I would also like to try catnip!! I have been meaning to. I just got a pretty tea pot i can probably use now all i need is the strainer. Lets see..the other things
-Get one of those scalp massage things with the prongs because they feel nice!
-Decide what to do with bangs (grow out, cut back to eye length, or maintain at jaw length)
-Continue taking vitamins. Try to eat healthier but not too much pressure.
-Use ALL of my hair toys at least a couple times instead of picking a few and only wearing those.
-Continue doing lots of SMT's, oiling, CWC, CO, and washing only every few days.
-Continue to use sulfate/cone free products.
-Find a comfy non damaging way to sleep with it!!!
-Wear scarfs more in winter and a parasol for hair and skin in summer to avoid sun damage :)

Wow when i first thought about my goals I didn't have anything in mind besides to keep taking care of it and no trimming. But as I read through i thought of other ideas. Its not really a big difference since i already do a lot for my hair though. As for length I would like to have a very achievable goal. Id say I want to be mid butt length this year. Stretching it would be getting to classic length. But we shall see! :D

December 12th, 2009, 03:36 AM
By the end of 2010 i hope to reach knee length or atleast thigh length.

Kris Dove
December 12th, 2009, 04:42 AM
- Reach waist!
- Hot days in summer only (if there are any in this freezing country!) I'll let it air dry
- Grow out my bangs

December 12th, 2009, 04:47 AM
-Trim the least possible (maybe an inch)
-Grow to waist (my bangs will be between APL and BSL I guess)
-Try a SMT
-Try catnip rinses
-Learn more up-dos as my hair grows
-Try some honey lightening
-Make it to iii of thickness (I have A LOT of new baby hairs growing)
-Continue to wear it up often very often

We will see! ^^

December 12th, 2009, 07:35 AM
I'm almost afraid to write down goals, because I'm not very good at sticking to them! But here are a few I really want to keep:

Hair Goals 2010

1) Don't color hair roots! (Keep letting them grow out even though they look really bad)

2) Don't cut or trim until my ends brush past my waist (about 7" to go); S&D is okay if not done in excess.

3) Embrace the curl! Find dressy hair styles that do not require any heat styling or straightening for special occasions.

4) After the baby is born, remember to keep taking a daily multivitamin, and get plenty of protein, iron, fruits and veggies, water, and olive oil in my diet.

December 12th, 2009, 07:43 AM
1) Make it to waist if not hip and maintain there to get rid of layers.
2) I'm struggling right now to make poo bars work for me, my goal is to figure it out! I believe that poo bars are the solution to my SD.
3) Find the perfect henna recipie/ routine... I think that I have it, the hair ball looks promising, but I am still hesitating putting it on my whole head.

December 12th, 2009, 08:23 AM
My goals for 2010.

1. Knee length reach.
2. My ends strengthen.
3. Distance between the laundry continue to increase.
4. Remain healthy.
5. Still more Ficcare do not buy.(I have more than I need.) :justy:

December 12th, 2009, 08:58 AM
I'm a newbie with a pixie, so my goals are pretty modest. Went from 20 years of chemical dye to henna early this year, so at this point all my dyed hair has been cut off, only henna/cassia remains :cheese: With my fresh start, I think this is what I'll try:

1. Honey lightening
2. Henna/cassia roots every 4-5 weeks as needed
3. Absolutely no heat styling - blow dry bangs only (if needed) with dryer set to no heat
4. Only touch hair with wooden comb, BBB or fingers
5. Continue CO wash
6. Continue biotin (increase to 5mcg), DE and 3x wk MN
7. Trims as needed to bring hair to one length

With the above routine, the length goal I hope to achieve is at least somewhere between chin and shoulders, all the same length (except bangs) by this time next year :)

December 12th, 2009, 10:00 AM
1. Keep my hair moisturized in the winter. I've been trying to track down some Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose. It's been an adventure to say the least.
2. Reach waist. First sopping wet, and then maybe I can reach it curly by the end of the year. Maybe.
3. Minimal trimming but keeping a blunt-ish hemline (planning my next trim for April, a couple weeks before my wedding.)

December 12th, 2009, 10:17 AM
Grow out layers

Grow to waist

more up do's

December 12th, 2009, 10:27 AM
1. Reach TB.
2. Continue to wear it up.
3. Continue with the vitamins and stuff, start drinking more water again.
4. Learn more styles.

December 12th, 2009, 10:34 AM
1) Reach waist solidly, rather than just when my hair feels like it.
2) Reach hip.
3) Grow out layers to BSL at least, if not waist or hip.

hanne jensen
December 12th, 2009, 11:55 AM
In 2010 I will reach BSL. I will continue to do what I'm doing as it's what my hair likes.
I will maintain BSL for some time to get one of my layers gone. I will also maintain BSL to try to get rid of some of my old damage.

December 12th, 2009, 12:30 PM
ok.. i suppose ive got alot of goals

1) get past tailbone.. (a challenge with all the trimming i do)

2) try oiling my hair before washing it more often.. im a lazy girl and i need to do this more often

3) try wearing something other than hairties.. i got into the bad habit because i hate having to redo my hair when spontanious sleepyness urges me to lay down on the couch for a nap.. ive got sooo many toys and yet i use none of them..

4) wear my tail sock braid thing more often.

5) start taking vitamins again.. maybe not hair vitamins but something like centrum.. im sure some vitamins is better for my hair than no vitamins

6) wash my hair every other day.. ive become lazy and have only been doing it once a week.. its not working out..

7) be more gentle with my hair.. no more ripping through it

8.) use the BBB less often.. if i can do #6 this one will be no sweat

9) learn to do a french braid

December 12th, 2009, 01:02 PM
I hope during 2010 to reach BSL (or longer) and to get a handle on my shedding as much as is possible.

December 12th, 2009, 01:04 PM
1) Reach TB.

2) Wear those creative updos more often.

3-∞) Don't worry, be happy :D

December 12th, 2009, 01:07 PM
I'd like to actually go cone and sulfate free. (Right now I'm sulfate free and using just a little bit of cones. I'm pretty sure my hair likes it better than lots of cones and sulfates, though.)
I'd like to reach classic.
And I'd like to not be so updo shy, learn new ones, and then actually wear them to school.

December 12th, 2009, 01:09 PM
To reach waist stretched.

December 12th, 2009, 02:13 PM
1. No haircuts. Ever.
2. Complete my set of puffy hair rollers.
3. Start WO.

Athena's Owl
December 12th, 2009, 02:36 PM
1. maintain or shorten my length as much as 3 inches to get a blunter hemline.

2. mousturising treatments, shampoo free cleansing, end protection

3. to create a set of soft rollers I can set my hair with, for those days when i would like less curl in my hair.

December 12th, 2009, 02:40 PM
Keep on ignoring it as much as possible. :lol:

December 12th, 2009, 02:43 PM
My goals for 2010 are:

no trimming
no sciccors
oiling, and smt
no schampoo only co
and just take care of it like now :p
and of course get some new fresh advise from here!

December 12th, 2009, 02:50 PM
Eating better and exercising (for my hair AND body)
Increasing my hairtoy collection from it's current 1 fork and getting better scissors
Waist Length Hair

December 12th, 2009, 03:26 PM

1) To reach tailbone (easy part) and maintain to thicken up ends (hard part)

2) To make it to March without trimming, thus making a whole year.

3) To S&D more often

4) To master the scalp wash without soaking length

December 12th, 2009, 04:48 PM
1. Reach full waist length by this time next year

2. Keep trims to a minimum

3. Stay on track with my vitamins and try to exercise more

4. Learn to french braid and dutch braid properly

December 12th, 2009, 05:01 PM
My goal next year is to have as long and healthy hair as I can..Micro trims like twice maybe 3 times next year and deep oiling and taking care of it and learn more updos..

I hope to reach waist next winter with healthy thick hair..
Good luck to U all. I hope U reach your goals..

December 12th, 2009, 08:10 PM
1. No hendigo-ing unless I get down below 160 (only 7 pounds to go!)
2. No hennaing unless I get below 150
3. Try cone free
4. be at waist stretched

I'm hoping the weight thing will help keep me motivated to continue losing, and keep me from screwing up my hair (again!). The longer I suffer through this awful two-toned stage, the more likely I am to never use chemical dyes again! Maybe by the time I reach my second goal, I'll be happy with my virgin (and colour matched) hair, and I won't want to henna?

Good luck to all!

December 12th, 2009, 08:13 PM
I'd be thrilled to reach hip. I'd like to keep trimming so my ends stay somewhat blunt though, so partway to hip would be nice :)

December 12th, 2009, 08:57 PM
My goal would be....Get some length back!!!! I trimmed WAY too much in 2009 and undid all the length I'd gained :rolleyes:

December 12th, 2009, 09:02 PM
I would like to get to waist by the summer of 2010.
I will only microtrim/dust and stop chopping inches.
I want to learn some updos besides the 2 that I know.
I want to wear it up more often this year.

December 12th, 2009, 09:59 PM

Find the perfect shampoo, conditioner, shampoo bar for my thin, color treater hair.
Try henna:).
Grow my choppy bob/shaggy chin neck length hair down to my shoulder.
Get bandannas, scarves, hair clips for the "can't do a thing with my hair--I hate it" days:rolleyes: (still too short for a ponytail).

And--keep getting great inspiration and ideas from the LHC! :cheese:

December 13th, 2009, 02:52 AM

December 13th, 2009, 02:04 PM
I'm feeling sort of left out by not having a hair goal. I'm at terminal and my hair doesn't change. :)

December 13th, 2009, 02:10 PM
I'm feeling sort of left out by not having a hair goal. I'm at terminal and my hair doesn't change. :)

Awwwww Ed! Don't be sad!

Your hair goal for the year can be to continue serving as an inspiration for all of us who are still only dreaming of reaching terminal length like you! :blossom:

December 13th, 2009, 02:19 PM
Awwwww Ed! Don't be sad!

Your hair goal for the year can be to continue serving as an inspiration for all of us who are still only dreaming of reaching terminal length like you! :blossom:Thank you, halo_tightens! :flowers:

December 13th, 2009, 02:46 PM
Maintain it at classic length, and maybe I am thinking of my hair being a bit longer than classic, but not until I get to classic (still thinking)! Just taking vitamins, still do oilings, massages and taking good care of it! Trimming it a bit to make it even while maintaining at classic!

December 13th, 2009, 02:53 PM
1. Reach waist
2. Oil once a week
3. Updos during the day (most days)

December 13th, 2009, 03:35 PM
My Goals for 2010

1) Reach APL

2) 1/2 inch or less trim every three months

3) Exercise at least 3 X per week

4) Change eating habits

5) Keep hair healthy

December 13th, 2009, 03:39 PM
For 2010 I want to

*fully reach classic, as in it's obviously classic and not just barely brushing like it is now.
*drink more water and eat healthier (which will directly affect my hair)
*maintain a decent looking hemline at classic and decide if I want to go farther

December 13th, 2009, 04:09 PM
My goal(s).... finish reaching Classic then maintain at Classic to thicken and even out the ends.

December 13th, 2009, 05:49 PM
my goals are ...
experiment with my hair some more because I am still trying to find out what works for me
wear my hair up more often
reach waist! okay, that's unlikely, but I can dream.
S&D more often. My head has been taken over by splits :(

December 13th, 2009, 06:01 PM
My 2010 hair goals:

-Continue letting my roots grow out no matter WHAT people say (over 6 inches of roots now and proud of it!).
-Grow past the 30" mark
-Continue greasing ends atleast once a week
-Continue using shampoo only once or twice a month
-Learn new hairstyles! I'm limited to a pony tail, and simple bun (which I hate wearing). Does anyone know where I can look for really easy hairstyles?

December 13th, 2009, 06:27 PM
this is fun :)

- reach waist
- find a good balance with oiling (i can't seem to get it right yet)
- cut down to shampooing every 3 days
- start cutting out the layers and the old colour damaged ends
- brush it gently (late mornings included!)
- find at least 4 updos that I actually like and will keep in

December 13th, 2009, 06:38 PM
1.) No cutting or trimming
2.) Do daily scalp massages
3.) Wash hair 2-3 times a week
4.)Reach BSL length

December 14th, 2009, 12:03 AM
Learn how to S&D my own hair and do it
Learn how to trim my own hair and do it
Catnip washes weekly
Cassia monthly
Learn at least three hair styles/buns/braids
Take my vitamins daily
Drink more water
Eat more fruit and vegetables daily, especially blueberries
Use molasses as desired
Use soapnuts
Make it to somewhere between APL and BSL
Cut off damaged/highlighted areas
Try that DE or whatever you guys are talking about in that one thread but I haven't researched it yet. (LOL)

December 14th, 2009, 12:10 AM
Start looking after my hair full stop!

I really had no idea before joining here (and I must admit that I stumbled across the forum doing a search for washing face skin or something lol).

So for me it's...

Handling my hair gently (ie removing it from under handbag straps, seatbelts etc).
Oiling it
No trimming
Reduce the shedding that occurs
Air drying my hair without rubbing it with a towel upside down after a shower!
And hopefully hitting my goal of Waist length (I'm currently about 1 inch below BSL)

December 14th, 2009, 12:12 AM
I guess in my favour I haven't coloured my hair for 7yrs and haven't flat ironed it for coming up 2yrs. I had a trim about 3mths ago (only about 1/2 inch off) that it did need as it hadn't been done for 18mths.

December 14th, 2009, 12:24 AM
I think my hair goal for 2010 is to get it down to thigh length. I want to trim it regularly, and put it up in an updo daily to minimize the split ends.

December 14th, 2009, 12:24 AM
I hope to reach waist by the end of 2010, and to be more gentle with my hair. Sometimes I am so neglectful.

December 14th, 2009, 12:41 AM
1: Stop shedding, be that with vitamins, castor oil, or simply less stress..

2: Continue with vitamins and supplements.

3. Use hair sticks instead of my trusty hair ties.

December 14th, 2009, 01:14 AM
- Continue with same routine
- Take vitamins consistently
- Hopefully hit hip or lower

December 14th, 2009, 01:18 AM
No trims

Keep taking the hair/skin/nail vitamins

Give DHT blockers a trial

Continue the almost-every-day updo's

Hoping to reach BSL or a bit below this year.

December 14th, 2009, 02:43 AM
This is so fun reading everyones goals :)
Mine are:

Hopefully reach waist some time near March 2010
No trims till June 2010
Continue with my vitamin routine and testing various new items
After June start trimming to get rid of my layers
Oil more and up my moisture treatments

December 14th, 2009, 06:02 AM
To reach and maintain at waist while doing micro-trims to get rid of my horribly damaged ends and even out my hemline/get rid of layers

henna, henna, henna! :)

December 14th, 2009, 06:40 AM
Ooh ok.. :)
1. Stop cutting! I bought some professional scissors which i love using because they make my ends so healthy. I keep forgetting my aim is to GROW my hair but anyways. :rolleyes:
2. Buy a better quality brush.
3. Stop brushing my hair so much when its not needed.;)
4. Not to touch my hair so much. Im always fussing!
5. Ditch the clip in hair extensions! - I hate them now.
6. Grow my hair quite long and flaunt it for 2010! :cheese:

December 14th, 2009, 08:00 AM
Learn to henna my own roots
Deep condition regularly, once a week I think
Stick to my vitamin regime (and healthy eating)
Trim back to a straight hemline (a u- or v-shape makes my braids look weird).

That seems to short and ordinary compared to previous years... :D

linda g
December 14th, 2009, 08:03 AM
1. Grow to BSL and then stay in a holding pattern, trimming off old color and layers.

2. Obtain better quality comb and brush

3. Become more proficient at updos

4. Become a real Renegray instead of a wannabe. (End of year goal)

December 14th, 2009, 08:44 AM
1. Reach APL (hopefully by October/November..)
2. Once I reach APL get a micro trim using Moon Phase Calendar
3. Regular oiling and deep treaments
4. Start to only color roots.

December 14th, 2009, 09:32 AM
Hmmmm . . .

Hair up every day for the next year
Learn Feye's self-trim method
Hello, BSL!!! Maybe even waist by 12-31??

December 14th, 2009, 10:50 AM
I'll be officially at waist by the end of this year, so for next year:

1. Maintain between waist and hip - maybe grow to "official" hip by next Christmas
2. Do more DTs
3. Find the perfect routine...heh, probably not going to happen, but I'll try
4. Do more intricate and interesting styles

Thats it! :D

December 14th, 2009, 11:05 AM
My goals

1. No cutting for all of 2010! Hopefully that will get me to APL, being able to pony it would make me SO happy.

2. Start to collect some cool hair toys for future use, don't wanna go broke all at once and I can look at them for inspiration!

3. Get a horn comb of some sort

4. Try soapnuts, they look so fun! If I don't like them I will use them for my laundry.;)

December 14th, 2009, 02:39 PM

! Continue to grow naturally curly hair to full BSL with out having to straighten it to cheat:p

! try to resist the ugre to re highlight hair in the summer. I loved them but the upkeep is horrible and i am really lazy.

! appreciate that my curls will frizz and i don't need to talk about about them:D

December 14th, 2009, 03:00 PM
Hmm. I will copy this into my blog to try and remember it this time next year.

1. Reduce the bathroom shelf contents
2. Use something as a leave in, oil or conditioner
3. SMT while watching a film as often as I want
4. Cassia regularly enough to definitively decide if it's worth it
5. Not be too precious over length
6. Use up remainder of supplements and not buy them any more. Switch to a general multi instead.

This year with LHC excitement I tried all sorts of thigs I didn't need before and don't now. I let them slide with post wedding laziness and now my hair is more like it was, which was fab.

December 14th, 2009, 04:22 PM
No more huge unwanted trims!
Finally cross tailbone
Stop shaving the bottom half of my head (or maybe not)
Keep it in a good condition, like always
No tying in damaging styles!

December 14th, 2009, 05:23 PM
1. Reach BSL.
2. Find the perfect henna mix.
3. Learn to trim my own bangs.
4. Learn some up-dos when I can!

mrs carol
December 14th, 2009, 05:39 PM
No trims in 2010. Just let it grow and see where it is in a year. Right now my hair is at tail bone length.

December 14th, 2009, 05:52 PM
1. No trims.
2. Start braiding my hair regularly, and wearing it loose, instead of wearing it in a pony tail all the time
3. Experiment more seriously with wo, herbal washes and other really simple (for me) hair care routines.

December 14th, 2009, 05:56 PM
To reach waist length - hopefully longer
To treat my hair gently
To learn more updos :D

December 14th, 2009, 06:03 PM
My goals for the coming year:

1. Grow out my longer layers to waist by the end of 2010. I would say all layers, but my former bangs are still hovering around APL.
2. Develop a more organized hair routine and follow it.
3. Expand my updo repertoire and become fluent in braiding. :D

December 14th, 2009, 06:29 PM
1. Go 'cone free to see if it works for me.
2. Try deep conditioning regularly, rather than "whenever I remember and can be bothered".
3. Remember to henna more regularly - I'm sick of seeing my roots coming through!

I don't have any growing goals, I just want healthy hair. In fact I'm pretty much set on getting a pixie cut in the summer ^_^. (Hopefully this won't get me branded a LHC heretic :P)

December 14th, 2009, 10:12 PM
1. Stick with CG
2. Stop using heat styling tools
3. Keep hair healthy

December 14th, 2009, 10:14 PM
My hair goals for 2010 are:

1. No more heat styling!
2. No more bleach or dye.
3. Grow hair to BSL
4. Be a happier person
5. No more poor quality drugstore brushes or plastic combs.:)

Oh I know what you mean with the poor quality drugstore brushes and plastic combs.. I have a bunch left over from beauty school. I even went out to get a boar bristle brush, but recently said, 'forget it!' now all I use is the occasional wide tooth comb to detangle.

December 16th, 2009, 02:46 PM
Since I reached my ultimate length goal of tailbone, the rest of 2009 was spent in what I thought was benign neglect. However, it was not so benign - I slacked off on deep conditioning, oiling and leave-ins, and as a result the condition of my hair is not that great at present.

So, my goals for 2010:

1. Do regular fortnightly deep treatments (SMT, caramel treatment or a shop-bought product)

2. Do heavy pre-wash oiling at least once a week (every other wash)

3. Use a leave-in conditioner or oil after every wash, and in between as needed.

ETA: 4. Use more of my hair toys, instead of just a single stick or tiny fork that sit in my handbag at all times! (end ETA)

I also plan to continue with henna and occasional brighter vegetable dye. Oh, and probably start light trimming of the ends! (I said the same for 2009 :p)

December 16th, 2009, 07:15 PM
1. Only self-trims.
2. No heat styling, if I can help it - it's looking pretty bad right now when air-dried, but I can stick it out.
3. Get to APL by next Christmas. :)

December 18th, 2009, 01:52 PM
1. Bite the bullet and chop off three inches of damaged hair.
2. Reach waist
3. Stop damage in the ends as much as possible.

December 18th, 2009, 02:02 PM
1. No cutting
2. No dyeing
3. Reach classic
4. Learn more updos
5. Pamper, pamper, pamper!

December 18th, 2009, 02:07 PM
1. reach waist length
2. actually do the wear hair up challenge for at least a week
3. take more pics of my updos (whether they were successful or not)

December 18th, 2009, 02:22 PM
this time next year I'd like to be waist or close to waist. (I'm almost bsl now) I'd also like to go the whole year with no trims. I shall become a henna head and hopefully my hair will be thicker, shinier, and healthier. And now that I don't have anymore curls I hope that my hair becomes more neatly wavier rather than this mop-head disaster I sport every day. If my hair gets thicker and longer maybe i can start sporting some up-dos

December 18th, 2009, 02:43 PM
For me it is mostly to keep doing what I did last year :D So hopefully I reach hip (at least with my longest hairs) Since my hair grows in an extreme 'v' I first wanted to maintain at waist. However, I trimmed the longest hairs a bit, but it doesn't make a difference at all, so I just let it growgrowgrow.
Also I will definitely do some more hair-up-for-30-days challenges...I got lazy the last few months, having it down once or twice a week.

December 18th, 2009, 11:13 PM
My goal is to focus on studying and forget about my hair for a while. Benign neglect while I do other things. I'm letting my layers grow out and having 1 or 2 cm trimmed off the bottom every couple of months, so hopefully one day in the fall or winter I'll look in the mirror and be surprised to see how much my layers have caught up while I wasn't paying attention.

December 19th, 2009, 12:38 AM
1. Start once a year trimming for now to get rid of damaged bits (might get myself a pair of good hair scissors and start S&D and dusting but that might not be until 2011)
2. Make my own satin or silk pillow case or a silk cap I don't know which
3. Start my yearlong updo challenge
4. get a measuring tape and start counting inches
5. Start working on my list of styles (which is a loooooong list) and take a lot of pics

December 19th, 2009, 12:56 AM
Learn more updos
Try some things to see how curly my hair wants to be
Keep up with my henna so I don't get roots :D

December 19th, 2009, 02:11 AM
No cuts or trims. Full, loose, low tail. Find a nice hair routine... a gel that works for my hair.

December 19th, 2009, 02:44 AM
I have one big goal/resolution for the new year. No trims in 2010! I will however be allowed to S&D if I get splits, but at the moment I don't have any splits. I have a habit of cutting or trimming as soon as I get bored so this might actually be hard for me. But I wanna break the habit. I wanna gain length this year!

Of course I am going to keep my good hair routines this year. And another goal is to wear more protective updos, which will be easier and easier the longer my hair gets.

December 19th, 2009, 05:58 AM
My goals:
- Reach waist length (maybe even tailbone or hip. I measured 6 inches on myself :D)
- No trimming.
- Get most of my virgin hair quite long.

Same here, Lize. I haven't trimmed since August 15, 2009. I know that a little dusting wouldn't hurt, but it would just lead me to cut more and then more and, well, you know where I'm headed with that. :o At the very least, I should reach APL by the end of 2010.

Other goals:
1) Continue with no heat styling
2)Henna once every three weeks (roots only)

December 19th, 2009, 10:05 AM
I couldn't decide whether to post here, but I think I will anyway.

- Keep eating well and exercising
- Reach BSL
- Learn to do more updos
- Buy some good hairsticks and hair combs and learn to use them
- Use more honey and coconut milk in my treatments
- Keep hair out of the way most of the time

Get back to TB length
S&D more often - at least once a week, if neccessary
Wear hair up more often
Oil more - at least once/twice a week.

S&D often enough to keep the splits mildly under control

December 19th, 2009, 06:10 PM

- Achieve tail bone stretched

December 19th, 2009, 09:12 PM

To reach solid hip by summer. This is the year I will do it!

December 19th, 2009, 09:13 PM
To reach BSL and maybe waist

December 19th, 2009, 09:49 PM
Waist length and then take it from there! :)

December 19th, 2009, 10:08 PM
I want to reach classic length. And then only trim tips to get rid of layers.

December 19th, 2009, 11:40 PM
I have not thought much about this, but here i go.

1. apply moisture like crazy, many more SMT's. (do Deep Moisture Treatments every 5-6 weeks right now, got to start doing them every 2-3 weeks. )
2. hopefully reach waist by July 2010. (hair growing very slow right now, but i've reached classic before so why i can't i reach it again?)
3. trim more often than twice a year, like every 4 months to help remove any damage and split ends.
4. continue to use overnight treatments to keep hair in prime condition for growing longer.

December 20th, 2009, 02:40 AM
1. reach solid tailbone
2. after reaching solid tailbone to trim more often than once every three years :pinktongue:
3. continue keeping my hair up most of the time
4. buy less hairtoys (this is the hard one for me :D)
5. learn some new updos

December 20th, 2009, 11:44 PM
1. Be more gentle with my hair
2. Do more SMTs
3. Do more S&Ds
4. Grow my hair 2 more inches to my goal 34 inches and maintain so I can get rid of all my bleach damaged hair
5. Enjoy my hair more! Try more styles and try to wear it out more often :p

December 21st, 2009, 12:19 AM
1. Reach a solid BSL
2. Find a good conditioner and go CO for reals
3. Get better at updos

December 21st, 2009, 01:43 AM
My main goal is to reach waist length by mid-late 2010. I Also want to learn more updos, buy some pretty hair sticks and learn how to use henna properly (it has never worked for me sadly).

December 21st, 2009, 07:35 AM
1. No trims till summer, other than S&D.
2. Learn more updos.
3. Take vitamins daily.
4. Do yoga daily, especially inversions, to encourage blood flow to the scalp.
5. Fuss less about my hair. Good-looking hair should come naturally as a reflection of good health--it shouldn't be a goal in itself.

December 21st, 2009, 09:42 AM
1. Reach BSL
2. Maintain at BSL with trims every 3 months to get rid of bleach damage.

December 21st, 2009, 12:23 PM
I want to continue with all the things I have learned since joining LHC in July 2009...COing, oiling, more S&Ding, and learning more updos.

In additon, I've made some decisions that will carry me through 2010.

- growing out my fringe (currently just about to stay tucked behind ears)
- doing monthly 1/4" trims to take a total of 3" of dry, heat-damaged, layered ends off, while growing more than that in healthy, virgin hair...this way I maintain length of waist to hip or longer, can still do the updos to protect it, and gain a bit of length while getting rid of ends.
- hopefully start collecting some quality and beautiful hair toys...

It should be a great year for hair!

December 21st, 2009, 12:31 PM
1) I wanna reach hip lenght!
2) No trim. (I don't think so but I'll try..) Before I reach 80 cm (31")
3) Continue to take care of my hair :)

Merry Christmas :)

December 21st, 2009, 12:32 PM
Goals, goals, goals...

#1: First and foremost: Grow! Hopefully to at least collarbone.
#2: Trims only every six months. Start trimming away layers.
#3: As hair gets longer, try to stretch time between washings and experiment with updo styles.
#4: Weekly oilings and scalp massages.
#5: Eat well and exercise often!

I love your last point bumblebums! I will try to keep that in mind as well.

December 21st, 2009, 01:26 PM
1) I will get a trim this year. It has been 2 years since last one.

2) I will keep doing what I have been doing because it works.


bleach it golden blonde like I had it once before. I came across some pics and it looked good. The color suited my complexion. I did not know how to tend hair back then and I believe I could take better care of chemical treated hair. I have been thinking about this for over 6 months.

Either way...no chops!

December 25th, 2009, 05:41 PM
Great thread! :p

1. Embrace my new hairstyle and be positive about every stage of growth.
2. No trims (hopefully).
3. Regular measuring - my "monthly measuring" this year was a total failure. :rolleyes:
4. Trying not to forget about my hair during the school year - at least one good SMT per week!
5. Try something new, like a different DT or cassia.

2010, bring it on! :eyebrows:

December 25th, 2009, 05:53 PM
I'm contemplating "no trims in 2010" ... but since I'm growing out from a pixie that might be more along the lines of wishful thinking, not a set-in-stone goal. I don't want to torture myself :)

December 25th, 2009, 06:54 PM
I might try to grow up to hip length and see if I like it or not. If not, I will cut back to waist.

Other than that, learn some new updos, get some more toys. Most of all, enjoy!

December 25th, 2009, 07:18 PM
1. Get to hip length.
2. Learn how to braid my hair.
3. Continue with mostly WO washing, with leave-in conditioner afterwards.
4. Try to figure out where the split ends are coming from so I have to trim less.

December 25th, 2009, 08:55 PM
1) eating better and exercising
2). APL curly
3) BSL stretched
4) aquire healthier hair toys
5) stay ahead of my hubby in length! I think he's gonna pass me up :)
6) keep my curls detangled, as tangles are the bane of my existance, and the root of my hair breakage slaughter

December 25th, 2009, 09:44 PM
1.Avoid Hair Dresser at ALL COSTS!
2.More S&D
3.Updo almost everyday
4.Switch to WCW
5.Stop blow-drying and flat-ironing

December 25th, 2009, 10:10 PM
I want to enjoy my hair in the present moment ... imperfect, impermanent, incomplete.
It's tempting to think a lot about the future while it's growing but I want to enjoy it in the present.

December 25th, 2009, 10:59 PM
1. Learn to french braid (my own hair and dd's)
2. Deep condition my hair more often
3. Trim to even out length only
4. Get below BSL

December 26th, 2009, 05:30 AM
I've reached my first goal of BSL curly and waist straight by Xmas of this year. By mid year, I want to reach Waist Curly and hip straight and then I want to maintain my hair until the layers grow longer. I may upon reflection decide to grow it longer but at this stage, Waist Curly is my final goal :-) I just want to maintain the same routine with my hair vitamins, jojoba oil in my hair of a night time, finger combing, conditioner only washes and doing microtrims. I also want to grow out my colour and leave my hair a natural black.

Looking back on what I wrote last year ... I did reach my goal of my hair being hip straight, in fact it's at least 0.5" past my hip but my hair is halfway between BSL and waist curly due to the bounce factor.

I am happy with my progress and basically want to keep on doing what I am doing which is the same routine as last year. I have added cassia treatments once a month to my routine as well. I am pleased to say that I have not dyed my hair for one and a half years since joining the forum and I am thrilled with my natural colour.

I think I'll grow my hair to hip curly before I start maintaining my hair as waist curly seems too short. Hip curly will be my final milestone. I will aim for that by mid 2011 and any sooner will be a bonus.

December 26th, 2009, 06:02 AM
I've enjoyed reading everyone's hair goals in this thread! Mine are similar to many others...

1. firmly reach between hip & TBL when dry - the closer to TBL, the happier I will be. ;op
2. continue regimen of CWC 2-3 times a week, no cones or fates, and oiling.
3. henna - starting with glosses and working towards a red I love that is NOT out of a box.
4. dustings to thicken hemmie every 4-6 weeks or so.
5. learn to french braid properly.
6. eating well, drinking more water, & continuing to take Biotin & multi for overall health.

December 26th, 2009, 06:26 AM
Hmm - this one is tricky but I'll give it a go

1. Try to enjoy my hair at it's current length
2. Try different updos appropriate to my hair's length and not pine over those I can't do yet
3. SMT weekly
4. Keep up my photo a month so as to measure my growth rate
5. Stay away from the salons
6. Buy a good pair of hair cutting scissors and try Feye's self trim
7. Forget about fairytale ends and go for what my hair is going to be good at - a thick blunt hemline.
8. Get to waist, grow out the layers and then ponder classic for 2011/2012 - too optimistic?

That's all for now - I'm sure I'll come up with some more.

December 26th, 2009, 07:24 AM
* Eating healthy, take my vitamins and exercise.

* To keep on my haircare routine.

* Sleeping with a satin cap.

* Trimming twice a year.

* Enjoy my hair.


December 26th, 2009, 08:02 AM
Try Cassia/henna to cover greys(will try cassia first)_
Stop chemical coloring(try to)
grow out layers/keep one length
eat better
continue taking vitamins
more DTs
wear updos more to save on tangling

December 26th, 2009, 08:18 AM
1. Full BSL, maybe even mid-back.
I have to trim damaged parts but I try to let my hair add lenght as well.

2. Get rid of my bangs.
I've been growing them out and they reach almost to my nose. A couple of imonths and I'll be able to pull them behind my ears.

December 26th, 2009, 09:08 AM
1. Grow my hair out to a solid classic length. I'd love to be able to go past classic so that I can trim back, but at this point I would settle for a solid classic length.

2. Do more DT's and other moisture treatments. (And by more I mean... any. At all.)

3. Keep hair up and contained most of the time. I've gotten a lot better about this, but not as much as I would like to be.

4. Start treating it more gently - no more yanking through it with the brush, or letting it get all ratted and matted up. It really doesn't take that much time to brush it every day.

5. Find a basic routine with good products and stick to it. I'm going to be busy enough with everything else, I don't need to worry about how my hair is going to look on any given day.

December 26th, 2009, 11:17 AM
I'll try to do this stuff this year:

1. Keep on exercising and eating right.

2. Add more hair helping herbs/supplements to my vitamins.

3. Grow to classic.

4. Decide if I want to cut in a fringe and either commit to doing it or not.

5. Keep up my recent good slew of hair habits.

6. Try soap nuts and start taking some DE.

December 26th, 2009, 12:03 PM
-To possibly reach waist with my hair! (Reaching for the stars!!!!!!)
-To have and maintain the healthiest hair possible!

1. longest layers to reach waist

2. one trim

December 26th, 2009, 01:23 PM

2. Not cut for a year (I'll probably get one sometime this week also).
3. Hopefully grow 6-8 inches. Reach at least BSL and maaaaaybe waist!
4. Keep on hennaeing! I'm hooked!

December 27th, 2009, 01:48 PM
My goals:

1) Trim 1/4" to 1/3" in February, June, October, for a total of about 1" trimmed in 2010.

2) Reach classic length.

3) S&D and then deep conditioning treatment (I do coconut oil + cheap conditioner + honey) once per month

4) Let bangs grow until 2011 (as in, get past awkward stage so that I can really evaluate if I like them shorter or grown out)

December 27th, 2009, 01:53 PM
1. I'd like to get to classic. (from just-past-tailbone)

2. Use more herbal things and eventually find a cure for my greasy scalp/dandruff that's not a sulfate-laden dandruff shampoo. Might try tea tree oil.

3. Work on my bun-making and braiding skills.

4. Keep up with the Monistat to help me get to classic and combat the massive hair shedding from my meds.

December 27th, 2009, 03:16 PM
By the end of next year I expect my hair to:

- Stand up at least six inches by itself without needing to finger and comb it while wet for fifteen minutes.

-Sway to and fro (lol getitgetit?) when I jerk my head.

- Completely cover the back of my neck.

- Engulf my ears and side of my jaw.

- Cover my forehead my itself.

- Stretch down to at least bra strap and at most mid back length.

December 27th, 2009, 05:52 PM
-Sway to and fro (lol getitgetit?) when I jerk my head.

That made me laugh - that's my mom's hair right now. We've been growing at the same rate and have the same length (when hers is stretched), but while mine is edging toward BSL at our 25" hers is edging toward the ceiling. Love it.

My hair goals for 2010 are:

1. Be to "Almost Waist" by December
2. Learn some up-dos. Any.
3. Master the art of patience and STOP TOUCHING it.

December 27th, 2009, 06:32 PM
1. Hit tailbone. Woohoo!
2. Even out my hemline a bit.
3. Figure out how I want my bangs to be.
4. Do more SMT's and honey lightening treatments.
5. Figure out whether my desired shade of red can be obtained.
6. Learn some updos other than a cinnamon bun.

December 28th, 2009, 06:50 PM
1. Make my scalp problems (dandruff :-() to disappear
2. Let my hair grow at least 10cm / 4 inches (more is always good, but not less)
3. Find "my" shampoo and "my" conditioner
4. Perhaps if 1. turns very good, Ill turn to Conditioner Only
5. Make my washing rhythm to go from every fifth day to once a week.

December 28th, 2009, 07:27 PM
1. Having reached my goal of waist I now want all hair to be thicker and healthy. Still going with plan to keep trimming at waist length as it keeps growing to get rid of the older ends and thicken up

2. More deep oil/SMT/conditioner treatments

3. Finally master some of these updos grrr, including learning HOW to make a GOOD upside down french braid. Some many updos, which look easy, elude me

December 28th, 2009, 11:03 PM
- Reach APL or slightly beyond by the end of the year (just slightly above shoulder length now)
- Only trim every 6 months
- Do deep conditioning treatments once a week instead of being lazy and only doing once a month
- Get my shortest layers to shoulder length
- Keep heat styling to a minimum!
- Embrace my natural waves and learn how to do something with them
- No shampoo; CO washes w/ ACV rinses and daily oiling
- Start takin biotin and MSM to help with hair growth

December 28th, 2009, 11:07 PM
1. I originally plotted that I would just about reach classic by Christmas of 2010, but I think it is now more likely that I will be a little past tailbone by then. So my big goal for the year is to reach tailbone.

2. I want to try to wear more updos. My hair is getting to the length where it is becoming cumbersome and possibly damaging to wear down in the car, and I am in the car a lot.

3. I want to acquire more hair toys, especially ones made by LHC members, because I want to help support our community (and a bunch of us make really awesome stuff)

4. I want to make my own hair toys and go beyond making simple hairsticks. I want to try to make forks and bun holders. Maybe a few cool combs.

5. I want to achieve the perfect shade of red with henna... I'm almost there!

My goal for 2010 is to grow my hair so that the most of the hair mass is at waist or past waist. I'm also planning on trimming more frequently to get a thicker U-shape hemline.

I'm rather new to actually taking care of my hair (rather than just thinking I was) so I'm not sure yet what it can do when it's healthy. However, I would like to:

-- reach waist length AFTER a good trim
-- start using henna instead of dye (already stopped dying!!)
-- start eating right again, lose 15 pounds of the 30 I gained
-- take care of my fingernails
-- find an alternative to eating fish, so I can be a good vegan again
-- start sewing regularly on my days off

Good luck, everyone!

(Oops, those were all my goals.... just pay attention to the first two, they're hair-related.)

It all sounds so familiar what everyone says :)

My hair goals:
1. Grow my hair longer (but do get a mini trim)
2. Learn more hairdo's (braids mainly)
3. Try to find 'the' hair products for me
4. Make some time for extra conditioning of my hair, I am too lazy atm.

I would love to reach waist length this year, preferably with even ends. I would also like to decide what to do about my fringe.

I also hope to do a crown braid at some point.
