    Posted: Oct 11 2010 at 12:49am

Hey ladies,
I know I'm on a quest for APL hair by the end of next year, so I figured I'd start a challenge to keep myself on track. I'll post my stuff soon, I promise!

The rules are very simple:

1) Post your starting pic!
2) Post your reggie and info on your hair type (relaxed? natural? texlaxed? 4a? 4b? 3c?)! (and update us if you change anything in your reggie!)
3) Check in often, and post update pics at least once every 2 months. The challenge ends December 31, 2011.
4) NO CUTTING! You can dust or S&D as necessary, but no major trims allowed.
5) Stay motivated and patient!Thumbs Up


***Make sure to send me a PM that you'd like to be added to the challenge. I don't have time to go through every page of the thread checking for new members. School has to come before hairLOL

I big chopped three months ago and I'm approaching full NL now, so do you ladies think it's possible for me to make APL by the end of next year? I currently receive 1 inch per month. I'm just not sure if APL in 2011 is realistic for me.

My hair has always grown about 1/2" a month, but I take vitamins, workout, drink plenty of water and intake a lot protein so that helps boost my growth rate.

...and thanks for the motivation! I'll aim for APL or at least touching APL by next year.

If you get 1" a month you can DEFINITELY make APL and even beyond by the end of 2011!


Good luck ladies... I might join you guys depending on the status of my hair at year's end.

I would love to join you ladies but i'm transitioning and i'm not done getting rid of relaxed ends yet so the no cutting rule wouldnt work for me, cant i join and promise not to cut my natural hair and judge my growth based on my natural hair?
