]HI! I'll join even though I know I'm not getting to a HEALTHY WL this year anyway

As it stands it looks like I'm shoulder blade length curly right? I might cut some inches off tonight lol. I'll be right back with a stretched pic.

Welcome and thanks for joining!!! I would love to join your no flat iron challenge, I know that would be the best for growing healthy hair. The last time I used mine was the last week of December and I'm already itching to use it again lol. But im trying to be strong and wait until March when we upload our progress pics. Taking baby steps lol

^ Lol I know its hard! It's a journey but I'm just trying to keep in mind that it'll be worth it sooner than later. I am going to push myself to be COMPLETELY heat free. No diffuser/hooded dryer/dryer/flat iron. See what that gets me

I think for the no heat challenge we should just post close up pics of our hair and compare how it looks health wise??

That's a good idea. Or if people have a specific problem area like thin edges, they can show their progress with that problem. IMO length retention is the best indicator for healthy hair.

Hey girls I'm so excited about this thread! It looks like there's a mix of lots of different kinds of curls here and I'm loving the variety! I want to do this challenge as well, but I was wondering, how do I get started on biotin? I'm 17 and I haven't ever taken any kind of vitamins before so any advice would be appreciated! I will post a starting picture tomorrow and I am super excited to hop on board with this challenge! I believe in us!

Welcome and thanks for joining. I take one 1000mcg (1mg) tablet of biotin a day. The bottle says that 1 tab is 333% of the daily recommended dose so one tab should be plently. Biotin is water-soluble, so whatever your body doesn't need will pass through your digestive system. I get mine from wal-mart for under $5

Thanks so much I think I will go get some as soon as possible. Should I speak to my physician first do you think?

^ I don't see the harm in asking your physician especially if you take other medications. Whatever makes you comfortable. Happy growing :-)

I just edited my posts to account for a new starting point after a 3 to 4 inches trim.
