I just needed a place to compile all my hair thoughts and what I'm doing in one neat place. Feel free to comment as you like.

BC'ed Feb. 25th 2012 to a low cut with about two inches of growth. 

My hair currently just met SL, I'm 3" away from CBL which I should achieve by April if all goes well.


Current Reggie:

 

Baggy Hair 3x a week


Carrot oil hot oil treatment before CO Wash massaged into scalp and hair

CO Wash 3x a week with cheap condishy (inbetween Baggying days) 

Mane n' Tail quarter size amount daily spread to hair as my leave in

Seal with Whipped Shea Butter mix

Oil scalp and massage with JBCO 2x daily (Morn. & Night)

Every few hours through out day mist hair with Espom Salt/ACV mix and then carrot oil spray to keep hair soft and moisturized 

Wear hair up in poof   

Mane n' Tail and JBCO so far have given me some good soft and silky hair which is thicker and seems to  be growing. 

Problem areas: Temples and nape

ETA: Baggying

Thanks, I'll be keeping up with this thread! Be sure to post pics! Just a thought, the ACV may be too drying for everyday use.

I'll be posting pictures today actually! :D That's my motivation! Seeing that something has changed even if I don't feel/see it has. And I didn't use alot of ACV, just a cap size and the rest is the Epsom salt water, so far my hair seems to like it but if it gets too drying then I'll stop use so thank you for that!

@Ashleyano 

kk thank you! :D

So last night I baggied and tied it down with my scarf. I thinking of incorporating into my reggie, like every other day inbetween my co wash days. I hear people can see better growth with baggying so I'll try it for a while and see.

After my shower I rubbed in some Mane n' Tail, sealed with Shea Butter Mix and applied the JBCO.

So I can't take the pictures off my phone. I'm no longer in the US and my phone company wants my soul and body as payment to send ONE!!!!!!!! picture msg so I re-took the photos on my Chromebook's camera. It's not the best, hell it's probably the worst but hey...

May 23th 2012



June 21st 2012


August 8th 2012


January 5th 2012



So yeah, here's the growth I've gotten so far. Considering how horrible I was treating my hair I'm surprised it grew at all, there are miracles at works, but now that I'll properly be taking care of it I'm excited to see it grow. The back of my head is much slower in terms of growth and thickness, I'm trying to use JBCO now to grow and thicken it up. Oh and ignore my tangled hair, I detangle after I take my pictures.

Thanks for the motivation ladies! =D I haven't done anything to my hair today, didn't even M&S cause I had to get up early to go to church with my Auntie and was being rushed. Just got back and I'm being all kinds of lazy, but I'm suppose to be getting my hair braided today so I'll M&S and oil my scalp before I go. I'll be baggying tonight and washing my hair in the braids tomorrow.
