When it comes to hair, many curlies like to keep track of the changes. This is especially true when you’re transitioning to natural hair.
Keeping a hair journal can be so helpful because, you can document the progress you’ve made, look back on hair milestones and see how far you’ve come.
In addition, if you ever have a question about what products or methods worked best for your hair, your hair journal will be able to answer that for you!
In this post, we’ll explain the benefits of hair journaling and give you some tips on how to get started.
What Goes in a Hair Journal?
A hair journal is a record of your hair’s and scalp’s condition written in the form of a diary.
When you create a journal, it’s easier to remember what product combo or treatment you used a year ago because they’re all recorded and listed in your hair journal; you’ll know exactly what you did and why you did it.
Journals are also useful for tracking hair goals. You can document your hair journey by taking pictures of your hair at different stages and writing down what you hope to achieve.
Your hair journal can be as simple or as detailed as you’d like. You might even want to track your hair’s progress with photos and measurements.
The sky’s the limit!
