2013 TRUE waist length challenge?

Like Tree22Likes

@Depressed Curls I'm terrible at braids tooo but I'm going to keep trying until I'm an expert! I don't give up easily, but my buns are more forgiving.

I'm going to start bunning on the 21ist after my boyfriend goes back to camp Pendleton. He likes my hair loose, which isn't helping my case.

I'd LOVE to make it to waist (or better yet, classic) length! But I recently got a trim and layers so I have a good ways to go. I'm rocking mini braids right now, to help with retaining length!
Curly and PROUD!!!

My hair has a mix of low/med/high porosity, and it's medium textured (some are still fine, though!)

CG since Sept. 2011
Cowash: Vo5/Suave Naturals/Tresemme Naturals*
RO/LI: GVPCB*, Tresemme Naturals*
Low-poo: Shea Moisture Moisture Retention
Stylers: KCKT*, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Honey*

* represents my HGs!!! Finally!!!
I'm in. I should be a full curly waist by July.
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
So this is the 2013 challenge? I'm hoping for MBL next year but lately I've been getting 1 inch of growth a month so I might even make it to waist length.

I'm DEFINITELY in this. I was MBL 2 months ago, but due to my hair stylist getting carried away with her pair of scissors; I'm back to APL. Now worries though, with the proper care I'll reach my waist length goal within the next year. (:

I'm going to be following a STRICT protective styling routine switching off from buns to braid for the next 2 months. Anyone want to partner up?

I just flat ironed my hair and I think I'm mbl right now in the back. My hair has natural layers and I don't plan on evening my hair out. It would be nice to make it to wl in a year. In the front I'm past apl and id like to get under my breasts but they're huge so idk when that's gonna happen.

And about buns and updos i get soo cold with those styles there is no hair covering my ears and face. This is the perfect weather for braids extension but dont know if i wanna risk my delicate edges.

I'm in for the challenge. I'm aiming for waist length by next December. I can't do too much buns and braids either. I like to feel my mane on my back
My hair grows out fast but I started taking a calcium supplement and started doing the castor oil scalp massage every week to speed up things a little.

Hair goal: Waist length healthy curls
Somehow I've reached it waist length.. :/ My coworker was stretching and messing with my curls last night and he pulled the bottom down and i felt it hit my waist, and we looked and triple checked and it is legit on my waist. So i guess i made the 2012 challenge but i want to be a couple inches past that while straight and i wanna be below boob length while curly. So I'm still keeping this going and have new goals.

Maybe I could make it to waistlength by 2013? I don't know about TRUE waistlength.

Photo: DSC 0015 | December 2012 album | NaturalRemedy | Fotki.com, photo and video sharing made easy.

I'm pretty much BSL...longest layer, so probably another year until waistlength, unless I get some type of crazy growth this year. I did find "amino acid" juice at a store near me, maybe I'll start picking that up and see if it makes a difference.
Mostly 3c and lovin' my curls

This is not a fashion trend, it's not a statement, it's pride for who we are and what we look like. And that is where our true beauty shines.
