2013 TRUE waist length challenge?

Like Tree22Likes

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.

I've haven't done it because I like the loosening and coloring effects of full strength henna.

Since goin CG it seems that my curls are getting tighter. I was more concerned about the color. Ive also read that is your hair is already dark the redness won't be noticeable unless you stand in the sun. Anyway I figured I cound try it once and see what happens. How long have you been using henna and how much does it loosen your curls?

I haven't done it since bc I don't want to mess up my apartment. In this break from henna my hair has returned to normal, the loosening is not permenant if you don't keep it up.
HTH!

It's right at the top of my bra strap length while curly in the baxk and resting above my chest while curly in the front, sorry for the lack of pictures while it's curly, the ones i have are old or bad pictures to show length and while straight, like it is right now its around waist length.

So here's my length check ladies...

The first one is forth day hair from yesterday and the rest are from my wash and go from today.

I want to reach WL stretched and MBL curly by the end of the year.

No split ends and my last trim was in October ( I had 3 inches trimmed off)

I'm doing biweekly sugar scalp exfoliations, rubbing tea tree oil & olive oil on my scalp and pineappling before bed, bagging at least once a week and protective styling at least 3 days out of the week.

I'll join
My hair is about 3-4 inches away from a good waist length. I'll be cutting about an inch off soon because the ends are getting scraggly. I have barely any shrinkage so I should be to waist length by August I think. I don't use any heat on it any more and it has been growing faster than usual (probably average for everyone else though).
