I've been so MIA with BHM for like 3 weeks lol but I'm back now!

I've decided to take my marley twists out next week so officially next week will be my 100% start of this challenge. I also just ordered a 6mo supply of Hairfinity which will hopefully come in next week. So, next week I'll give my hair a good wash with my terressentials and go back to my flw which will allow me to GHE with my liquid gold hair growth oil every other day while taking my Hairfinity pills. I'll update my reggie to reflect the new additions.

And I'll also be able to take (finally!) a before pic to start my journey. :)

Modelbusiness82
starting length? Full APL
goal length? Somewhere b/w BSL & MBL for this particular challenge. I'm hoping to hit BSL before the end of this year though.
other goals? Long term goal is MBL
normal growth rate? .75 - 1" per month
hair status? natural texture & henna'd
album?
journal?
regimen?
  • PS during cold weather months
    • Currently in marley twists. About to take these out in like 4 or 5 days!
  • If I actually wear my hair out, I GHE every other day
  • Only use all natural products on my hair - nothing with impossible to pronounce ingredients allowed!
    • make my own flax seed gel
    • make my own shea/mango butter daily moisturizing mix
  • Wash my hair up to 2x a month w/terressentials mud wash. Any more than that and it dries my scalp out.
  • Use topical growth oil 2 - 3x a week.
    • currently using gro-aut oil but may switched to liquid gold
  • Spritz my hair daily with my aloe/water/msm/essential oils moisturizing mix.
  • Henna rinse 1x a month or every 2 months depending on how busy I am
  • Take 2 MSM tablets (1000mg), 2 biotin tablets (5000mg) & 1 garlic pill daily + Hairfinity.
  • Drink 64oz of water daily (or at least get as close to that as possible!!!)
  • Put as little heat on my hair as possible unless I'm doing a very infrequent length check.
  • Spend as little time thinking about my hair as possible.
growth practices? 
  • gro-aut oil liquid gold hair growth oil at least 2x a week
  • PS'ing with FLW until March/April
  • if I'm wearing my hair out, I GHE on the days I use my growth oil
  • daily vitamins - Hairfinity
  • daily water intake (64oz ea. day)
  • daily moisturizing spritz on my hair whether I'm PSing or wearing it out
  • Re-joined gym...going back to my minimum of 3x a week gym time
  • don't obsess over my hair - keep it super low maintenance

Haha I know! Normally I'm so good at taking my vitamins and water intake - even when I travel, but my Chicago trip threw me for a loop lol. Looking forward to next week to start fresh! ^_^

Are people falling off the challeng? Or are we all too busy keeping up with the challenge to post? LOL
 
I fell off a little bit when I got sick but I got right back to it. Can't wait till payday to get my lace wig so I can stop wearing this bun.

Thanks Yahya.

So I tried washing in the thread and ummm it's a no go. Lol. The end of the threads came apart and I had to redo several of them. For now, no washing until I come up with a way as to not wet the ends.

@texasmami0776, I hope it's the second and not the first, that they're too busy taking care of their hair and increasing their growth!
@thelurkingkind, you can try cleaning your scalp exclusively, like with a spritz bottle, using natural cleansing ingrediants. I'm currently experimenting with this idea.

So my 6mo supply of Hairfinity came in today! Just took my first dose! ^_^

Now if I can just find the time to take my Marley twists out I can really focus on the topical angle as well! :)

Hey guys. I fell off the challenge for about a week. I woke up with an allergic full body rash last Sunday and after I went to the doctor on Wednesday when it got worse, I was put on a bland diet of basically porridge, potatoes and soft fruits with only antihistamine and hypoallergenic soap externally. It was hard taking my larger HSN vitamins and drinking lots of water because my mouth and throat hurt inside but I started taking them again yesterday since it's mostly cleared up. Also, so far I'm seeing good growth with the sulfur. I feel like I'll definitely have more than 1/2 an inch by the end of the month if I continue with my routine!
