I read this post, The first step to longer hair, from a blog called Kibibi blog and the writer (Ms Kibibi) talked about goal setting as being the first step to longer hair.
When I was in medical school, I learnt the key elements of any goal can be described by the mnemonic SMART:
Specific: You can make a specific goal by saying, for example, you want to grow 2 inches of hair.
Measurable: You can measure your goals by measuring your hair progress objectively by taking pictures and using hair growth comparison t-shirts
Attainable: Is it possible? You should not aim to grow 2 inches in 1 month. This is NOT attainable. The average person grows 1/2 inch of hair monthly. If you use a growth aid, you might reach for 1 inch.
Relevant: Is it worthwhile? Still trying to figure out how to relate this to hair care! 😛
Time-bound: Your goals should be time-bound, for example you can aim to achieve your 2 inches of growth in 3 months.
My MAJOR hair goal for the remaining 5 months of this year is to keep my hair healthy and then get a very nice trim at the end of the year (2-4 inches!). That means that I’ll probably lose all the hair I’ve grown this year! I’ll start setting length goals by next year.
What are your hair goals for the remaining months of this year? By the way, I’m thinking that we should have a HEALTHY HAIR BOOTCAMP to run till the end of the year. What do you think?
