I want to be part of it!
The picture I am posting I took it today. I did not make a shirt with the lines like I have seen girls wearing in other threads, so instead I picked this dress that has horizontal lines.



My current length is mid back or boob length. I want to achieve waist length by December, but to be realistic, by March 2014, and after that I will decide if I'm still greedy for more hair LOL

Is this challenge due by January 1st 2014 or will it be going on until the end of next year?

Internally I take Multivitamin adults under 50 from Target. I take two pills a day, each contains 3,500 IU vitamin A but only 30mcg Biotin. I chose this one because of the high amount of vitamin A for my hair, but also because it has other vitamins that my body needs. I have been taking it for 2 months, I think.

Externally I am using a Brazilian stuff called Monovin A, which helps your hair grow fast since it has 2 million IU vitamin a. I put a tablespoon on my shampoo and I use it three times a week. I have been using it since September 7th (sadly, this thing cannot be shipped from Brazil and rarely sells in the US).
I also want to do some of the stuff on the 1 inch a week challenge, but I need to figure out which oil. So for now, I am only using Monovin and taking multivitamin.
I will have a new pic on December 7th, when I am supposed to stop Monovin (you use it for 3 months and take a month break).

oh and I also oil my hair a few times a week with coconut oil after reading about this Indian girl who oiled her hair weekly with coconut, olive and castor oil and it grew a lot in a year:

LOL Isn't that so gross!! Like wth!!

Anyway, I've been reminiscing on how long it's taken me to get to my current length. I joined in Nov 15, 2010. So this Nov will be 3 full years of me trying to grow my hair to waist length. I faltered a few times and recently really hadn't been giving it my all. Here are a few pictures of where I was and just about where I am now.

This is the very first pictures I took right before I truly started going "hard" for long healthy hair.
9/25/2010. My ends where choppy, dry & uneven. My hair was just below my shoulders

This photo is when I had done a little research on the do's & don'ts of healthy hair & actually started working on my retention.

Feb/2011

April 2011 I went & got my hair cut to even it up & get the ends healthy. At this point I was a year in and my "fullness" was really nice.

About 3 months of hair growth. 1/2011
JAN 29 2012 GROWTH CHECK photo JAN292012.jpg

5 months of hair growth...just before the summer. I was feeling my length and health! LOL




4 months...not taking care of my hair during the summer, using heat & flat ironing really did some work tho my ends...they started to look choppy again

IMG_0396 photo IMG_0396.jpg


After 5 months of growth. This is my last length check.


My next length check will be the beginning of the year, which will be the start picture for this challenge.


I'm really glad I took pictures because it helps me to see what I'm doing both good & bad to my hair. I can actually see the months I'm working hard to take care of it & when I'm not...LOL


I'm currently texlaxed: last done on 9/18/13 & trimmed on 9/20.

My reggie is:
weekly pre-poo with what ever conditioner I have on hand a little water & evoo.
wash & deep condish weekly.

As far as weekly hair styles, I'm doing my best to keep heat to a min, but I do at times feel the need to enjoy my length & I do a roller set or flat iron, but no more than twice a month. I mostly air dry, braid and then put in a bun for the week.

Vitamins reggie:
although not regular vit taker, I'm going to do better because health wise, I need it!

MSM
Centrum multi
calcium
b-12 complex
flax seed
biotin (alter every other day)
garlic (alter every other day)

Food & exercise reggie:
I was doing so well during the summer, but my knee started acting up, so the diet & exercise went right out the window. I'm starting back up to the gym tomorrow & start incorporating healthier eating as well.

I have to put the soda down as well (found out it could be contributing to my knee/joint pains). So my water intake will greatly increase, which will help my hair as well.

I look forward to seeing everyone have a great year of happy healthy hair growth!!
