I am definitely in. I was hoping for a new year challange to do. It will be my first.
I will post my photo, etc in group closer to the start day.
Thick/medium, low porosity, 4a/4b hair.
I'm in. I hope to make at least BSL at the end of 2012.
I'm in! I just BCed 3 weeks ago so this is perfect
I shall join! I'm more about health than length, but it'd be nice to keep a photo record of my growth as I keep forgetting to take photos!
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with!

Give it 3-4 months.

If your hair grows an inch a month and you are retaining that length, then it may take about 3-4 months (in addition to what you have now) before you can pull it back.

Couldn't post an attachment in the group, so I'll post it here.
I forgot about the challenge already and put twists in! So it looks shorter even when I pull on the twist, but since I'm pretty much always in twist, I bet most of my progress pics will be twist shots anyway.

Now my hair in twists is 7.5 in. In the back 9 in the middle and 7 in the front.

I plan to keep PS and moisturize and seal daily. Also clip these scraggly ends.

Count me in. My hair is 3c and is a bit more than shoulder length. I'll be posting pics soon.
I use sulphate free shampoo and conditioner. I also use coconut oil, argan oil, castor oil, shea butter and I've done a blend with argan, jojoba, tea tree, peppermint, basil, castor, hemp, lavender, frankincense, Rosemary, carrot seed and ylang ylang oils to help my hair recover from all the damage caused by years of heat.
I also use my hair normally in a bun to protect my ends.
I want to have my hair by my waist in January 2013.
Good luck to all.
