man, I am feeling very pressured to straighten my hair for tomorrow. :( its like my family doesn't understand.  It sucks. I am attempting to do a 6 month no-heat stretch.  Putting heat on my hair is addictive, and I don't want to start an abusive cycle with my hair :[

good point, cherry!  okay, i'm in!  here is my info (swiped it from the ps challenge :-) )

WL Goal: 12/31/2013 (LOL i have to be realistic here!) would love to be MBL by 08/2013 
Current Length and State of Hair (e.g., relaxed, natural, texlaxed): Natural; ~BSL 

Detailed Regimen while in PS:
I am usually in mini, small, or medium twists about 98 percent of the time.
1. Cleanse (Weekly)
steam with pre-poo of coconut/olive oil blend
shampoo with my homemade poo (castile soap, water, jbco, glycerin, avg, EOs) or sheamoisture shampoos
"clarify" with bent clay mix every 1-2 months
2. Condition (After each Cleanse)
DC weekly w/ one of the following: sheamoisture dt masque, as i am hydration elation dc, aubrey organics honeysuckle rose, or homemade dc.
3. Moisturize
spritz with aphogee protein restructurizing green tea spray after each Cleanse
use darcy botanicals, my homemade spritz (water, glycerin, EOs, JBCO, avg, lime juice), or sheamoisture dt masque as a leave in after each Cleanse
Twist with mix of my homemade butter (shea and mango butters, JBCO, jojoba EOs, vit. e) or jc's nourish and shine and jbco.
Moisturize as needed with the above during the week.

Here is my starting pic:

You can totally do it, Heavy!!  Welcome! :)

Update:  I'm still semi-straightened.  As fun as it is to enjoy my length, I don't like not being able to water my hair daily. I'm hoping to be consistent with my wigs and individual braids (no extensions) next year.   I would like to make WL in 4.5 years and that would be December 2013.

About an inch+ above APL, mind you.   BSL to WSL is definitely doable.
