The start of 2019! It’s always the most goal journaling day of the year. If you are anything like me once again you will find yourself meditating on life and business. Or trying to write a blog that is informative with the “what’s in it for you”. honestly I thought to write so many different things about “how to” create hair goals . Let’s be honest we can’t leap into hair goals if we are not letting go of old habits. So get you fingers ready to screen shot some info that your going to want to share . Let’s start with curly hair things we shouldn’t bring into 2019.

How healthy is your scalp? We have lived through the trend of co washing . sometimes we took it as far as only washing our hair once a month. That was just not so good. See cleansing the scalp and getting rid of build up promotes healthy scalp skin. Yes my Curl Pop’rs , your scalp is SKIN! Just like the rest of the skin on your body needs to get a regular cleanse because other wise you stink and can get rashes. the same thing happens to the scalp. An unhealthy scalp will prevent you from growing your hair, having lustre in your hair and a great curl pattern. So in 2019 and forever get to cleansing and scalp loving habits.

Bleaching is really bad for you. You want to know what isn’t bad for your curls?
