How long did this process take? Would you get this done again? How long did it take to grow your hair to WL? Reggie? lol sorry for all the questions WL is my current goal.

aaaw, thank you! X )
I actually forgot about this post. 

with 3 inches of new growth, the process was about 4-5 hours. I am definitely going to stick with japanese straightening instead of relaxing. the set back is that japanese straightening is much more expensive, but you can only do it once-twice a year. this might be a good thing or bad thing for some. the reason is because you need at least 3 inches of growth to do. I'm only doing it once a year because of the expense. but it's pretty much the only time I'll be going to the salon, so it isn't that bad. 

it took about 2-3 years to get to waist length.
here's where you can find my recorded growth rate:


and my current regimen:
  • hairveda shikakai bar and amla powder for cleansing; 
  • amla deep cleanse and castile for clarifying; 
  • hairveda sitrinillah, ao honeysuckle rose, and shescenit avocado for conditioning; 
  • henna, shescentit banana brulee, and amla powder for strengthening; 
  • roux porosity and acv for porosity correcting; 
  • hairveda whipped creme and mane n tail detangler for moisturizing; 
  • vatika frosting and cocasta shikakai for sealing and prepooing;
  • sulfur, jbco, and mn for growing and thickening; 
  • fantasia ic serum and grape seed oil for heat protecting; 
  • && multivitamin, omega 3 fish oil, and garlic supplements for overall health. 
  • prepoo at least half hour before every wash; 
  • shampoo every 2 weeks; 
  • cowash in between shampoos if hair needs it; 
  • clarify when needed;
  • henna gloss and roux porosity when needed;
  • deep condition every wash; 
  • steam using turban towel & hooded dryer;
  • acv final rinse after every deep conditioning;   
  • t-shirt drying method;
  • scarf method and bantu knots under hooded dryer, when new growth gets long;
  • flat iron when new growth gets longer;
  • lightly moisturize and seal about every other day; 
  • baggy & ghe when needed;
  • comb once to twice a day;
  • split-ender every 1-2 months;
  • trim 2 times a year;
  • && apply growth elixir 2-3 times every other week (wash week). 
this isn't including my growth regimen, which changes depending on what I'm testing.

I would say my staple products, having a clean scalp, deep conditioning properly (with heat), and moisturizing throughout the week.
