Hair Goals

As I mentioned in my first blog post, I recently set some new goals for myself.  Let's break down my first goal:  Grow some long, beautiful locks like I had in my younger years.

My wedding 6 years ago was the longest my hair has been in a long time and I am ready to go there again...and beyond.  I pretty much had every hairstyle know to a child growing up in the 80's.  As I've gotten older, color and highlights have contributed to dry and damaged locks.

Step one to reach this goal is to get my hair healthy again using a good shampoo and conditioner.  I recently read about Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo and Moisture Conditioner and thought I would give it a try. One word...Fabulous.  I've only been using them a little over two weeks and can definitely see and feel a difference.  They're a little pricey, but well worth it.

Step two is to learn how to properly use dry shampoo.  I consulted my hair stylist on this one and got a brief tutorial...Shake...Spray...Rub.  I love Philosophy products, so I purchased Philosophy Pure Grace Dry Shampoo, which smells wonderful.

Step three is to stop using a flat iron on my hair every day and incorporate a round brush into my drying routine.  There was quite the learning curve when I started this on a daily basis, as I didn't know how to get my arms to maneuver properly.  I'm working on this and making progress.

Finally, I need to have some patience and let nature take its course. 


  1. Dear Southern Belle,
    Here is a hair trick I just learned about! After you wash your hair, rinse it in cold water. This apparently seals the hair shaft or something and reduces frizz apparently. Well I tried it this morning and I swear my hair was more smooth and soft today.

  2. Hi Jeni,
    Thanks for the recommendation. I've heard this before, but have been hesitant because I love a warm, hot shower and turning the water cold at the end has not been too appealing. Trusting you, I will try this technique tomorrow morning.
