Default Who's gonna start the 2012 waist length callenge ;-)

For the past 3 years I've had a lot of issues with breakage. I dyed the crap out of my hair and I left it very damaged. I still have maybe a half an inch of color on the ends of my hair and now that the color is gone my hair is MUCH healthier. I'm currently MBL streched. My goal is to reach WSL and I believe 2012 is the year. I guess it doesn't take much to start a challenge, just ask for pics and regimens. Just the thought of being in charge gives me anxiety lol

Well it sounds like maybe we should just do a grow out challenge. Post a picture of of your starting length Dec. 31 and check in with progress every 3 months.

Default WaistLengthChallenge

Hi,
I'm new here and would love to join in on this challenge... My hair used to be waist length when curly and nice healthy 3b curls, but from lack of patience, dyes, and bi-weekly straightenings (blow dryer/flat iron) its about a 2a/2b sometimes and MBL. I hate it and want to get my hair back. Is it too late to join? What do I do?

-Bina

It's not too late. So far it's not too much involved we will post starting length photos on Dec. 31/Jan. 1 and then update every four months ( or more if u like). You can also post your regimen if you like. And that's about it! Guess we'll be seeing everyone's beginning length pics soon. HAPPY GROWING!!!

Not me!!! I did it last year and it annoyed the crap out of me when it got caught in my jeans I chopped it down to bsl a few weeks ago!

Good luck to everyone though...looking forward to pics!

I trimmed about an inch of split ends and the last little bits of color. Figured I should start the challenge fresh :-) Can't help feeling a little further from my goal, but I know its better for my hair in the long run. I don't expect to be a waist length or at least close till the end of '12
