2013 TRUE waist length challenge?

Like Tree22Likes

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.

Im just hoping to have healthy hair no matter what length. I just choped off like 12" and will attempt first to regrow that healthy...

Haha, he wasn't always so supportive. When I first started dating him, he asked me to get a relaxer.

All is well now ladies, I educated him thoroughly and he appreciates my hair just as much as I do.

To update : i plan to incorporate henna in my weekly treatment because of how soft my hair turned out after just one treatment. I also have little shedding. This really is the miracle powder

I've discovered that my hair prefers EVOO over every other oil I've tried. I think I'm going to stop using Shea Butter(started making my hair feel really greasy! ick) to seal my ends and only use EVCO in my DCs and curl refreshing spray that I make.

And earlier today I exfoliated my scalp for the first time and GIRL let me tell you...I've been missing out. My scalp felt so CLEAN and REFRESHED! I don't have any brown sugar like they recommend, so I just used white and I mixed it up with some EVOO and Tea Tree Oil and VOILA! Awesome results.

I'm going to incorporate this into my regimen weekly. I feel that Exfoliation + EVOO + Light protein treatments + Vitamin Supplements (Multi & Biotin) + No heat + No dye will equal healthy beautiful hair for 2013 (:

I am shooting for WL in 2013 too. I am just below BSL (stretched) now which on me is about 4.5 inches from WL. Maintaining my regular trim schedule (I trim .5 inches four times a year) I should reach WL by the end of the year.

My plan to get there is to continue doing what I have been doing. CG and FSG are the best things I have ever done for my hair (not to mention the easiest and the cheapest ).
Hair
Type: 3c/b; Density: M; Texture: M-C; Porosity: L-N; Length: APL curly, WL stretched

Products
Oil: CO, MO
Cleanser: SM Moisture Retention Shampoo
Conditioner: SM Restorative Conditioner/ Noni and Monoi Conditioner
DC: SM Noni and Monoi Mask
Leave-In: Giovani Direct
Styler: CRN Curl Maker

Regimen
Condition twice a week; Cleanse once a week; DC as needed; Henna as needed.

I'm in. I was able to get just about to MBL, but I went for a trim yesterday and she took off 2-3 inches (even after I told her - same as last visit - that I was growing it to waist length and to only trim off any split ends). She also used some other line of product ( not Devacurl, even though I was paying for a devaservice) and the shampoo totally stripped my hair - not happy. So...all my new length is gone, and I'm back to just barely BSL again. Think I'm going to just trim/dust the ends myself, and maybe go in to a salon every 6 months or so. And probably look for a new stylist who will listen to me.

fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

I went to the salon for a trim and she ended up thinning my hair and I'm still dealing with the two different lengths. I do my own trims now.

I want to add henna into my regimen. I don't want red hair so I will add indigo. And I also don't want to loosen my curl pattern so I may only use it once a month or every other month.
