I would like to join also.
I stopped relaxing in August 2010 and cut my relaxed ends off last April. My hair is growing pretty well everywhere except my crown area. Recently, I have been doing more protective styles (twists) and being sure not to pull my hair back too tight if i do a puff. I also bought some headbands that do not pull or catch on the hair. I have also started making sure to add moisture and seal my ends daily. I will also do better with my vitamins. Hopefully I will pick up some tips that will help me grow out my crown. I am excited to join this, my first challenge.
