Aww.. sadly, I might not sign up.. If, by December's end, I am an inch from BSL, I'll sign up, but for now, this page will be bookmarked. Have fun with the challenge, guys. :)

I wish I could join, but I don't think I'll be WL class of 2012.  I'll probably be MBL at the most.  I'll stick around for next year's challenge though. Wink

Fotki:  http://my.fotki.com/  If, for some reason, my Fotki cannot be accessed through the link, my username is ajamonroe.
Starting Length:  The pictures in my Fotki aren't my most recent pictures.  I will have updated photos tomorrow.   I will have updated pictures on the day of my wash.  If I had to say a length, I would say I am full APL.
Hair Status:  Color treated natural.  I wear my hair pressed, curled, or straightened 97.5% of the time.
Expect to Achieve WL by:  December 2012.  (I would like to reach it sooner, though.)
My Short Term Goals:
1. Thicker hair.
2. Revive some of my hair's natural curl pattern.
3. Healthier hair.
 

Regimen:  For me, the less I do to my hair, the better. 
  • Wash and deep condition my hair with Morracan Oil shampoo and conditioner every three weeks. 
  • No access heat! 

That's all I have for my regimen.  I learned the hard way that trying to do too much for my hair does more harm than good.

Whoop Whoop! Party

Ok so my main plan is to be in weaves until I reach my desired hair length. Since we have to update once per month I'll only be able to take pics of my leave out.


These are the most recent hair length pics I have (taken in June) since I'm currently in an install. At this point I was APL:





Fotki: http://public.fotki.com/assiyrabomb/
Starting Length: Last check June 2011 :APL
Hair Status: Texlaxed... June 04, 2011
Expect to Achieve WL by
: Sept 2012

My Short Term Goals:

1. BSL by Dec 2011
2. MBL by April 29th, 2012 (my bday!!)
3. Use heat no more than once a month...
4. Healthy, full WL by Dec 2012

Note: I have some split ends that at some point I'll have to get ride of. Based on my growth rate I would be WL by 09/12 but because I'll have to do a little snipping I hope to be healthy WL by Dec 2012

Regimen:
I get a sew in every 8 weeks. I take out the weave at week 6, let my real hair breathe for 2 weeks then get a new sew in.

Hair care while in weaves:

-Spray S Curl in braids, every 2-3 days.
-Moisturize/seal my leave out once per day

Hair care when weaves are out (again for 2 weeks after each sew in)

-deep condition hair as soon as I take weave out
-moisturize/seal daily
-oil rinse before day before I get a new sew in


Products:

S-Curl Spray
Carrot Oil Creme Moisturizer
Jojoba Oil
Creme of Nature Shampoo
Aussie 3 minute Deeeep Conditioner
Aphogee products (for protein) when needed

Good luck ladies!!!!
