    2. Take progress pictures every 3 months.

    3. Reach APL.

    Hopefully it will be longer than APL but probably not a new milestone.

    4. No heat styling, except blow-drying on cool/medium setting if I truly need to. Since it's past shoulder length, my hair is not so puffy anymore so it looks better even if it's unstyled.

    5. Only use silk scrunchies/invisibobble/claw clips. Nothing that tugs at my hair.

    6. Don't trim until the end of the year.

    7. Deep condition at least once a week.

    8. Olaplex every week/every two weeks (as needed).

    9. Finish up everything before buying new hair products.

    I had this goal for a while and it goes smoothly. I only have 3 products that I don't like so I'm trying to finish them up as soon as possible. I will not make the mistake of bulk buying anymore as it takes quite a while to finish up everything.

    10. Monitor my eating habits!
    1. checked
    2. checked
    3. checked - major milestone for me
    4. partially checked - I blow dry my hair every time I wash it - which is daily. I get colds very easily so it's necessary. But I still let it air dry for an hour before + I use heat protectant and the blowdryer is always on cold. My hair has no new split ends so it's ok. I don't use any other hot tools.
    5. checked
    6. 'failed' - I cut in layers. I don't love them but they made my life easier (cut off all the damage). I'll even it out eventually. The cut is great, I just love a blunt hemline more. I am still not cutting the longest layer until the end of the year.
    7. checked
    8. checked
    9. major fail - at least I love everything I bought and I think I've found my HG routine
    10. checked - I eat healthy most of the time. Still have to improve, but it's not bad at all.

    2. Learn how to trim my own hair. Have now trimmed my hair twice, using a combination of Feye’s and Spidermon’s methods.

    3. Start S & D in between trims. Done 3 S & D so far, which is helping to stop me doing full trims!

    4. Grow out layers completely to achieve a blunt hemline. Thickness is travelling down, but not yet to the ends.

    5. Invest in oils to make overnight hair masks and to seal moisture in. Started using Babassu oil as an alternative to coconut, as it’s much lighter and less greasy, and use jojoba oil as a sealant. Love the result, as it makes my hair soft, silky and shiny, defining my waves. I’m now going to try adding a mixture of olive, wheatgerm and rosemary oils to babassu oil.

    6. Start deep conditioning. Purchased Garnier super food blends 3 in 1 to use every other wash. Makes my hair soft, shiny and defines my waves.

    7. Reach hip or BCL. Passed waist, but not ready to call hip yet.
    7. Longest strands in my u-shaped hemline are definitely at hip now. Not long to BCL!

    Almost reached knee but change of plans, I might maintain around FTL for a while or at least get lots of trims. I might be past the point of goals.

    1) Finish the year at solid classic or fingertip length. If I manage this, I should be able to reach mid-thigh by the end of 2022.

    => I'm maintaining for the final quarter of the year, and I'm hovering at nearly fingertip length, so this one is a success.

    2) Continue to lead a very healthy life, paying special attention to maintaining a healthy sleeping schedule and sleeping enough.

    => Uhh... My sleeping has been a mess more or less the entire year. Food-wise, everything's been good, and there has even been an improvement in my exercise habits, although most of that happened in the spring and early summer. Partially successful, I suppose.

    3) Abstain from bleaching, even highlights.

    => Yep, success.

    4) Keep tracking my product usage through the use-it-up challenge and keep working through my stash.

    => I've done that, yeah.

    5) Don't buy any haircare "consumables" unless I actually need a product for that "slot". That means shampoos, conditioners, leave-ins, oils and such. Logically, the only kind of product I might need is a shampoo for my scalp, not containing either protein or coconut oil (or butters, but I avoid those anyway).

    => I did buy shampoo, but the kind that will definitely get used up on my scalp. I haven't bought any conditioner, which is my biggest problem, since the summer of 2020. So this is mostly a success.

    6) Improve my braiding skills.

    => I guess I've sort of done that, but not to the degree that I would've liked to. Not sure about this one.

    7) Complete the first no-trimming challenge, then more or less maintain for the rest of the year.

    => Success! I grew for 3/4 of the year.

    8cooldude) Take seasonal length shots.

    => One more to go, but yeah!

    1. TBL. This is could be possible, since I should start 2021 with ~36 inches and TBL with dry hair is ~40 inches (I'm a slow grower). I reached TBL, yes, but I will not reach 40 inches
    2. Stretch washes. I know I need it, my scalp need it, but I need to stop myself doing it just because it relaxs me. I aim for 5 days without washing. not gonna happen
    3. Keep my hair up or in braids more and increase braiding skills. --> this will not happen

    Mh maybe a fail.
    Next Goal: CL. Final Goal: CL+.

    Exactly when or how much, who knows?
    Pretty safe to say I am not going to meet this goal... and I will NOT make it a goal for next year! I'll laugh if next year I do finally end up getting a haircut.
    Hair is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
