Great topic!
I'm between waist and hip length. I used to visit this site all the time, but after growing long hair I didn't really feel the need to anymore. My hair care routine is really simple, and at one point I just didn't feel like I had much to share.

I came back to the forum last month or so, because I was planning to flat iron my hair for the first time since going natural. After doing so I felt re inspired to play with my hair more and set new goals.

My standard reggie:
Clarify scalp once every 2 weeks
Conditioner wash weekly
Leave some conditioner in and add small amount of olive oil
Set hair in 8 braids to dry
Set hair in braids or pineapple every night
Add olive oil daily

I was at the same length I'm at now about a year ago. I had to cut off a year worth of color damaged hair, and about a month later I cut my hair to even it out in one length (close to but shorten than armpit).

I don't have pictures showing my full length, but I will post them if I straighten again in december.

The first picture shows my hair in pits curly state last year (right before my 3 year mark). The second is this year (few months after my 4 year mark), and the third is flat ironed and curled in buns.

Hey, been on here since 2008 but lurked before then. I'm 4a/b and reached waistlength but had I setback recently. I'm back at full BSL/Midback length? Pic below is Nov '11 & Jan'12 I believe. I'll have an updated pic this weekend.



Non-Wash Days:
1) Moisturize hair.
2) Grease scalp with Tressfully Yours Stimulating Scalp Oil. Massage it in for 5 minutes.
3) Place hair into a ponytail & Baggy overnight, if needed. Put on satin bonnet to bed.

Wash Day (Saturdays):
1) Wash hair carefully in 4 sections with Tressfully Yours Clarifying & Conditioning Shampoo.
2) Deep Condition for at least 30 minutes with no shower cap under a hair steamer. Rinse thoroughly with cold water while detangling. T-shirt Dry.
3) Air Dry hair.
4) Moisturize hair.
5) Grease scalp with Tressfully Yours Stimulating Scalp Oil. Massage it in for 5 minutes.
6) Curl hair with Flexirods, then put on satin bonnet to bed.


*I henna or Henna Gloss my whole head 1x/month for 4 hours followed by a 2 hr moisturizing deep condition.

*Relax my hair every 12-16 weeks (about 4x a year)

*Give my hair a break with a full sew-in every summer.

Nay, thanks for this! Do you blowdry to stretch your hair for your BEAUTIFUL BRAIDED BEAUTIES or flatiron or use some other technique? When you use the PM, do you notice an immediate feel in the strand once you add heat or stretch your hair? When you say a 'little goes a long way', how much is that approximately? I thank you in advance for your answer. I want to be able to use the serum on my ends on a daily basis and when I use heat. I love when a product can be used for multi purposes! Keep me updated with the PM results, k?

Hey Bella! I don't have a lot of working knowledge on serums, but my stylist told me that it would help with the SSK's. In my research I have found that serums are good to seal the cuticle when flatironing. I have also seen some ladies use it for the ends of the hair and then seal with oil/butter/grease of their choice to cut down SSK's. The Hubby got me some Nexxus Split End Mender-stuff. I'm going to wait until my trim next week to start incorporating that along with the PM(that I still need to pick up) and sealing and see how that goes. I like ya hair's name tooLOL

Lookatchu, Jauna! All on the grow! Wow, I'm impressed with the number of products that you use. I have noticed that the longer ya hair gets, the least amount of products used. I may venture and experiment with a new product here and there, but always return to my staples. Plus, if I decide I like some other product better than a staple(after adquate time using the product), then I replace the staple, but the number of products stays the same. Thanks for joining the convo and HHGTongue!

Thanks Luv,

Yeah... I used bigen to color my hair. The only big mistake I made since being natural. I had to cut all the colored hair off. It was a sad thing. I had single strands that would have over 6 separate splits.. It was crazy.
