Okay, I'm actually excited for this challenge!
So, I'm moving across the country to attend college and plan to protective style the whole way. I figure by the start of next semester (Autumn 2013), I'll be exactly where I want to be.
Starting length: About an inch above BSL
Starting status: Relaxed, corrective relaxer done 12/30
Goal and expected date: Waist length/ Summer 2013 (September)
Detailed regimen: GHE at least x2 a week
Apply Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Moisturizer every day
Apply WGO oil moisturizer after leave-in
Protective style constantly
Wash at least once a week
Co-wash at least x2 a week
Maybe Biotin 10mg, it might not be worth the effort if my diet is high in protein
Exercise 3 hours a week
I can't wait. I am ultimately hoping to gain thickness from the protective style as well as allow the shorter parts of my hair to "catch-up". Not sure if this will be my last relaxer, I have a strong desire to try henna just to loose the curl instead of destroy it all together.
Either way, I'm excited.
