Hair Regime and Goals for 2011! (+ pics of wet bun)

So I think it is about time I come up with a hair regime. I have been just going with the flow for the past 12 months and I have gotten ok growth, but Id like to grow and retain more in the next 12 months. Im not really giving myself a time frame to meet goals right now, but I would eventually love to be waist length, right now i am grazing APL.One thing I know I need to do more of is deep conditioning. I do a lot of cowashing, but I don't deep condition nearly enough.I also have been straightening my hair way too much the last couple months or so, esp December. I guess it wasnt that much since I may have only straigtened it twice all spring and summer. Luckily I don't have any noticable heat damage. One of my goals is to start doing more natural styles like I did in the spring and summer, and to stop using straight hair as my go to style for special events. I think the cold is playing a big part in why I am opting for straight hair instead of wash and goes, puffs, twist, and braidouts. So far I plan on :

1. Cowashing every 2-3 days with V08, Herbal Essence Long Term Relationship, or Aussie Moist , leaving in a considerable amout of the conditioner, sealing with olive oil(or coconut once i get more), and wet bunning by slicking back with a little eco styler. This will be my hair style during the work week.
Here are a couple pictures of my everyday wet bun:

I can't wait until it is bigger and I can do a cut high bun!

2.On weekends if I am going out I will either wash and go with Knot Today or Giovanni Direct Leave In with Kinky Curly Custard or Wash and Condition then Lightly blowdry and do do a braid out.

3. I will deep condition atleast once a week, probably Friday nights. I am not sure what I will be using yet, I will probably do a lot of experimenting. I do like Hollywood Beauty Olive Cholesterol. It is cheap and works well with my hair.

4. I also want to revist twist agian, and will probably do them agian sometime in the spring.

I hope to do a lot of experimenting with products and natural styles instead of boring straight hair lol so I should have a lot to post!
