SL Challenge anyone...?

I don't know how many of you curlies are out there trying to achieve shoulder length locs but my goal is to be there by July 9, 2009(my 33rd bday). There are no "rules" but if you join the challenge please keep me motivated and on top of your progress(plz) =) I am currently at earlobe length and with four month to go I think this is feasible. Any ideas or suggestions to promote growth are very welcome!! Hope you ladies will coma along for the ride. I will try to post updates here or via my fotki
**************************************
My plan:
NO heat
Poo weekly along w/ ACV rinse
Co-wash 2x week, DC 1x a week(try)
Multi-vit, Biotin, MSM, Nettle, Omega3, Vit E
2 strand twist nightly w/ H20, leave in condish, shea butter ends and cover w/satin bonnet
Curly puff is my staple style for now

I'm in!! I need to do a challenge and stick w it and sl is my goal right now anyways. Ill post some pics later of my current length curly. Ibought a digi cam two days ago just for this site! Lol. I have also purchased bioten and msm which I have yet to take regularly so ill start that up w a multi. Ill be doing dts twice a week same as now.wash n go Buns or twist out buns is what ill do for protective styles. No straightening. The only heat will be my dts. What I use in my hair changes a lot between so as far as leave ins it will be either smsbli and devacare one. With shea butter on my ends. Actually I put the shea all throughout then the leave ins. Then ends. Or for for the twist outs I think its called lustrasilk shea and mango as a leave in w juices and berries along w the shea on the ends. (All of my haircare products I use came frm reading curlynikkis blog and they work so good!) So ill add some pics later I'm excited!

Thanks for joining! I can't wait to see the out come. I have been following CurlyNikki's blog as well and a lot of the ladies her offer wonderful advice. I have a similar regimen as you do and the only heat a will use is with DC(on low). Good luck with your venture to SL hair! =)

I'd like to join your challenge. I'm already in a growth challenge but it doesn't have a specified length. My hair is currently in microbraids (as of yesterday, Feb 28th) and I hope to keep them 2.5-3 months. I am still attempting to do the baggy method and applying essential oils to it. The braids are because I've been eyeing my scissors recently and needed a safety precaution. My hair is 4.5 inches long (top and middle), the back is about the same until it dries and it shrivels up something fierce. I'm hoping that I can grow all my hair to my shoulders or long by July.

Are we talking stretched or unstretched? B/c stretched, I'm already @ or past SL/
I am in if you are not talking stretched
@DAngelique25 Welcome! With your braids you'll definitely be there.

@Hakim Nuraldin and Winona I am straightening mine in July so stretched....but you're welcomed to join. Like I posted, there are no rules =)

Im in for the challenge. I want to reach atleast shoulder in the back and either to my chin or past my chin in the front. p.s. i dont expect all of my hair to grow uniformly. currently my hair is in kinky twist as protective styling.
Welcome ladies!!!

@JairMadison July 9th is the best day!!!

@curly_me2 As you see from my pics, mine is not going to be even all around. My front is already long. It's the back I'm trying to get to cooperate!

Hi,

This is my first time responding to any hair website. I'm so excited but there's always a first time for everything. I am definitely up for this challenge. I would like to be at SL by June 2009. I think it's doable. I cut off my relax ends in October 2008 after being relaxer free for 18 months. My hair is just starting to cover part of my ears which seem like an eternity but it's only been 4 months.
My length is currently earlength in the front and necklength in the back.

Hair Goal: Shoulder Length and Curly before April 2010!

@Scurls2-Welcome!!! This is my first challenge as well so you're not alone =) Good luck with it and don't forget to post updates!!!

@kaymoore-We're about the same hair length! I'm so excited to see how far I would have come by then. I smell a APL Challenge by mid-July
