Reflection of my 2016 Self Motivated Learning Project
My SML topic making hair styling gel that is easy to use and works well. The hair gel is supposed to be organic, and made from ingredients such as beeswax and coconut oil. I choose this topic because hair styling gel is something I use everyday and after researching, some of the chemicals in commercial hair gel products can cause pimples, hair loss and dandruff. So far, this has been a great experience. I have learned a lot of new things about hair products and have accomplished a lot. During the past few weeks, the only challenge I faced was finding ingredients in Hong Kong such as beeswax and shea butter but I was able to find stores which have those products. I am really proud of what I have achieved so far. I have been able to make different hair gel samples with different aromas and texture. I have done a lot more than I imagined to achieve. SML sessions get me feeling creatives because I am in an environment with people learning about things they have passion for. Seeing classmates doing other projects, spikes my interest and gets me feeling creative to go out to try different things. Over the last few weeks, I have learned that I learn best in an environment where everyone is passionate about learning. SML is a great way to learn about new things and develop you as a person. I have really enjoyed this project.
