I am a newbie as well. Although i began my hair journey a few years ago, I am just now getting to register within a hair forum community( i been a professional lurker lol). I am excited to learn and offer advice to others on their hair care journey as well. I am currently mid back length and my last relaxer was june 29 and my ultimate goal is to grow all my perm out in three years and to be waist length by my relaxer free anniversary ( June 29,2013). I look forward to sharing my progress with everyone and see others as well.
