I will be taking my hair down this week and re-braiding it for another three weeks and then I will do a length check for the challenge:) I'm excited about making a year (in March) maintaining a consistent protective style!

@Heavy, 

I thought they were pretty watery too when I first started using them. I use them because they fit great into my budget. Big smile I have reallllly thick hair, and I have to use a good amount every time I condition. True, It don't leave my hair overly moisturize, but it does the job! lol. Especially after using it as a leave in. I guess I will switch back to Herbal Essence Long Hair care or try the Aubrey Honey Suckle one everybody has been raving about, when I slow down on he co-washes. 


@007
I haven't hard about the liquid gold stuff?? Hope it works well for you. I'm trying to get an inch by Jan, and hopefully the sulfur will help..

Update: Nothing new, did a co-wash today and applied castor oil. I needed to get a break from the sulfur. I want to start doing the molasses treatment, to reduce breakage and shedding. (I would add it to my V05 and it worked really well). I also will be adding Coconut oil and Grapeseed oil to my reggie, and try to get some MSM powder. Hopefully I can get one inch this month, can't wait until our Length check-in day..

Hair Goal for June, 2013: To be BSB length

Current Length and State of Hair (e.g., relaxed, natural, texlaxed): Current length is APL, natural and color treated

PS of Choice: Right now I like buns but I will be investing in some glueless lace wigs and doing braids for the entire year.

Detailed Regimen while in PS: Keeping it braided up under a lace wig, mini twists or box braids. Wash 2x a week and deep condition once a week alternating with protein and moisture conditioners. Moisturize hair as needed, trim every few months.

Biggest Hair Issue at the Moment: Schizo scalp! Always itchy Confused

Favorite Product: Don't know I have way too many that I like!LOL

Will be posting starting pics soon!

Hair Goal for June, 2013:

Hoping for 4 inches of growth--my current hair length is about 2 inches. So I wanna be at six.
Current Length and State of Hair (e.g., relaxed, natural, texlaxed):
No-Chem TWA! :3
PS of Choice: Wigs and Braids

Detailed Regimen while in PS: I haven't been  doing much. I just wash/condition my hair and then moisturise with creamy shea butter and seal with care free curl and an oil.
Biggest Hair Issue at the Moment: 
None really. Just waiting on some length.TongueAlthough my hair is short I'm already getting attacked by SSKs. But it's bound to happen with my hair type.

Favorite Product:
Care free curl and Shea Butter


^Don't seem to work. >_< Sorry

I could have sworn I posted in here trying to see if I can save a spot to come back with my info...my hair is currently poofy straight and will remain that way until next Friday (graduation =) !!) and that is when I will take my starting pic, since I recently gave myself a nice trim and added some face framing layers Wink

hi, ladies! happy wednesday! :-)  still in my mini twists..in a bun. i redid the perimeter and i look brand spankin' new! :-)

@s007, well, it looks thick to me! :-)

@902, welcome!  do you use coconut oil on your scalp?  whenever i put it on my scalp, i get the crazy itches!!

@khivey, a year, that is really impressive!!  i have been doing it for about 2 years now, but i have definitely taken breaks here and there for a few days at a time though so big ups to you for doing it straight through.

@amber, cool!!  good time to rock a low cut!  i see you are on the grow, though.

@cherry, yeah, when the v05's work, it's golden for their prices!

@mrs.rob, heeey!!! welcome back!  can't wait to see your update! :-)

@ibenn, heeeyyy!!  we're waiting for you girl!!!

Thank you. Yes, I used to do that as well when I would ps in the past with other styles, but this past year has been so busy and crazy all over the place for me (in a good way) that it has been so convenient to keep it up. When I do my end of the year check in for another challenge I am in, I plan to do flexi rods..so that will be the first time that I don't have braids in my hair for a couple of days because it is getting braided right back up again.
