I'm currently protective styling until March then again from May-October. I wear individual braids or I press/flatiron my hair. Nothing else really works for me as far as natural styles. My hair is just too big for that and I always look like a hot messOuch
I'm natural and about 4a and very coarse texture.

Hi Everyone,
I don't feel that I really made that much progress this year since I can't stop cutting. I cut off 2 inches back in March. But i did have some growth overall and I'm past BSL finally and still approaching WL but not quite there. I'm not really thinking about hair growth too much anymore just retaining what I have and growing out some of these shorter layers and thin ends.
I HAVE TO TRIM, I can't put it off any longer.

End Photo:

I've been in the growth challenge. First half of the year was great. Second half not so much. Pic on the left was when I started in January, last pic on the right was taken today. My hair grew like crazy from Jan-May. But  I think a bad press and a bobraz weave (I was manipulating my leave out in the back with updos and whatnot) caused my hair to break :-(. It looks like I retained basically zero length after May. . 

Next year, no more BoBraz. I loooved the hair. Esp the first day of install. But it tangled with my own hair too much, and I was too much of a busy body to not do a million styles with it. I'ma keep my hair weaved up with my relaxed texture Senghori Shells (maybe another upart wig) for most of next year.
