THIS CHALLENGE IS CLOSED! Wink
 
Hi, Ladies!
 
Okay, let me warn you: this challenge is not for the faint of heart.  Wink  

This is a challenge for those who will wear Protective Styles from next month, November, to May 15, 2012.  For this Challenge, Protective Styles mean twists, braids, wigs, or weaves....basically, your hair must be twisted or braided (underneath).

This is a challenge for those with tons of discipline (or who want to develop it) when it comes to their hair in order to grow it to longer lengths!

I'm trying to hit BSL by May, 2012 so I need to go hardcore on this one. Ouch
 
Here are the Rules for this Challenge:
 
1. You must check in to this Challenge at least once per week. 
2. You must post pics of your progress, Protective Style, or just to do show and tell, at least once per month.
3. When changing Protective Styles on your own hair, you are allowed 3-4 days of wearing your hair "out," but your hair must be in an updo/high pony/bun style at least 2 of those days.  Those wearing extensions can have a longer time between installs, but must wear their hair in an updo/high pony/bun style at least 3/4 of the time that their own hair is out.
4. You cannot comb your own hair more than twice per week.
5. You must develop/have a moisturizing regimen for your hair while in the PS.
6. You cannot trim your hair, unless you have a reason (e.g., split or weathered ends).
7. You cannot use direct heat more than 6 times during the Challenge.
**8. You must encourage the other participants in the challenge.  We're all in it to win it.** Smile

If you do not comply with the above...you will get the boot. Embarrassed

Told you this was hardcore! LOL
 
To join, please give the following information and upload your starting pic (BEFORE NOV 1):
 
Hair Goal for May, 2012:
Current Length and State of Hair:
PS of Choice:
Detailed Regimen while in PS:
Biggest Hair Issue:
What you're good at when it comes to your hair:

To make this Challenge really meaningful, I think that we should cut off the participants to ~15.  Max of ~20.

Okay, so, who is with me for this Challenge? Big smile

Do it and assess in Feb if you need to trim. You can definitely trim, but it should only be because your hair needs it. We always do challenges together...you cant disappoint!

We need you! I'm sure the growth you got from your ps stint will be awesome. Plus, it's winter and we will hide our hair anyway. Let's do this!

Woo hoo!!! :-)   You're in! Don't forget to provide your info by the end of the month.

I will update with my info tomorrow (am on ipad and typing all that info is not boss right now) and I will add participants' names and reggie pages then too. Hopefully my laptop will be back in working order and I can upload a pic.
