Now that my hair is healthy and balanced and I have awesome products, my hair is on her way to thriving! I didn't get to Waist Length like I wanted to in my My Hair Diary | My 2018 Goals For My Natural Hair Journey , but I did make it to Bra Strap Length! So now I’m coming for that Mid-Back Length!

My Hair Diary | My Top 5 Natural Hair Mistakes In 2018

Fine Natural Hair Length Check

*About 3 inches in a year - this is what happens when you wear your hair out too often...BREAKAGE AND LOST LENGTH*
I definitely had lots of mistakes of 2017 and set my 2018 goals based on them. Yet! 2018 was a great year of learning from using the same regimen and products to focusing on retaining the growth of my hair. I will say I have really accomplished much with learning and appreciating my natural hair even more than the years before.

However, with accomplishments there are also mistakes and failures. This is what a healthy hair journey is about! If you do not make the mistakes of going through the failures, there would be no way to make yourself better at caring for your own hair.

Here are my top 5 natural hair mistakes of 2018:

Quarterly Natural Hair Advancement | Comparing September 2018 and December

Image Credit: Bing Images


I decided to let you experience one of the things I do in my Hair Diary! Although I record my triumphs, failures, double failures, and awesome product reviews, I also do something called the "Quarterly Natural Hair Advancement (QNHA)." This entry reflects on the last 3 months comparing with the previous QNHA while giving a summary in one whole journal entry.

There are a lot of comparisons with lengths, regimens, goals, habits, and hair styles. I also include pictures to show that I have either improved or that I need to improve in a specific area. I started this back in June 2013 and I do the QNHA at the end of the months: March, June, September, and December. Yes, I am very intricate with my Hair Diary...but this helps me perfect my current regimen, helps me with future styling options, reminds me of my hair goals, and just fun to do!!!

Since it's coming up to the end of 2018, I decided to look at some pictures and compare them with earlier pictures. I was absolutely amazed at what I saw...
