Oh damn, I just read the first post! Too many rules! No wonder people stopped updating.
They were supposed to be giving their final update early this month
I am going to do my way. My goal is to achieve this waist length before Christmas, but to be realistic, I will aim to achieve that before my birthday in March.
My hair has pretty much been APL or BSB my whole life, but grew some after I used Monovin, which is a Brazilian product impossible to get here in the US. I don't have it anymore, and this month I started on this Brazilian tonic called Gota Dourada, which I posted photos of on my previous post.
Some background: I am mixed, and I was born and raised in a hot, tropical country. My hair was something between 2b and 3b. Very dry, very voluminous yet thin, with small little curls. After moving to the US, it seemed as if my hair "cooled" down a bit. The volume decreased a tiny bit (especially during Winter) and the curls diminished somehow. I had virgin hair and I did two Brazilian Keratin Treatments. My hair now is wavy, has less volume and the curls are gone.
The Monovin treatment I did for about 6 months, I think, but I wasn't following instructions and sometimes I forgot to do it, and didn't see any results until
my hair was straight thanks to the Brazilia Keratin treatment. I haven't cut my hair since early 2011 and don't plan in doing anytime soon. My mother trimmed my hair about 5 months ago
My hair now is boob length or mid-back length. Waist length will make me happy but if this tonic works or if I can get my hands on Monovin again, I will try for tailbone lenght!
