So ummm .... names of participants will be collected until September 30 (or 31, can't remember how many days are in the month right now) .... please also add your hair type and what you're hoping to achieve from this.

Oh yeah, and if you'd like, you can post a starting photo.

Me and my fro want to join!!!! *jumps up and down*
 

Hair Type: Type 4? I only had 2.5 to 3 inches after I BC'ed again. I can tell that my curl pattern in the very front and back is very loose compared my curl pattern in the middle.. I guess when I grow more hair then I will be able to tell, or at least take pictures and let you ladies determine for me..

Goals: to keep my hands out of my hair, and just grow healthy hair altogether.

Regimen: since I plan to wig it up for the rest of this year, I do just have a few things that I will do whenever I remove my LF. I plan to wash, DC, seal, and maybe add henna. I am not sure.. My hair does so much better when it is put away and I leave it alone so we will see..
I will take pictures of my ratty BSS LF later. LMAO.

I want in! 

I JUST put in some twists like last week [my first time with extensions Tongue]. I'm gonna keep these til the end of October/beginning of November or so. So won't be posting pics til then! :( 

But this is the style I usually wear because it's easy.




& here's my length!
even though that's a twist...


 I really hate protective styles right now because my hair isn't short but it isn't where I want it to be yet either. Sooo yeah. Hiding my hair for a couple of months. 

My hair is a 4a aaand yeah. Idk what length I am technically either. But yea...

Don't judge me. LOL My friends say I live in a world of personal delusion. I think my hair is thin and short, and nobody can tell me otherwise. Angry If I keep telling myself this, I'm better with my protective styling and moisturizing. LOL Maybe when I come to reality, my hair will be MBL.

Update:  I'm in the process of taking down my braid extensions.  I made it 3 weeks and 2 days.  I'm proud of myself :)  Dunno what I'll do next.  I think I'll wear it out for 4-7 days and then put it away under my wigs.

Henna'd over night and rinsed it out this morning. Applied some grapeseed oil and flax seed gel.
 
I think it is time for a trim , I haven't trimmed since the beginning of the year.. i think Confused, it been a while.
 
Going to put some twists maybe i'll start them tonight.
 
Anyone else taking MSM ? I just started taking it and would like to compare notes. So, far it makes me feel sick on the stomach.

Hey Rum-
When I first started taking it, it made me have to go to the bathroom.Embarrassed
So I went down to a smaller dose and worked my way up.  I have the powder so it was easier to do that.  I went up in small increments every two weeks.  I took 1/4 dose and then 1/2 and so on. HTH! :)

Hi Ladies,
 
I want in before the buzzer goes off!!
My goal is to retain length and hoepfully be able to grow a fewinches by December.  For protective styling I will rotate between wearing wigs and rocking twists.

I may start splitting the pills in half and working my way up. I'll probably buy the powder once I finish these up.

Are we starting this challenge already?

Well I just took down one of thee cutest protective styles I've ever done and getting ready to co-wash and stretch my hair into medium sized braids. I plan on starting to put in my mini twist either today or tomorrow with some shea butter and bee hold curly butter. Hopefully I can keep them in for a month with cute updos and pinups!

Quick question!

I know this is PS thread, but I want to buy some Kinky Curly Custard to wear my hair out (like I do my wigs) in January. However, I dunno if it'll work since I'm a type 4.

I have Eco Styler (I know people suggest that), but I want to buy the KCCC. I tried using the Eco Styler earlier this year.

Hey AmandaKay!!
 
Will you be making a 3/4 wig or a u part wig and what type of hair will you be using?  I tried my hands at maingthe upart but for some odd reasonit comes out too big once I cut the u-part area.....I am contemplating making a half wig out of some of my kinky curly stash (rho afro kinky, aamh..) however I can't seem to getthe sewing part correct.

It worked okay on mine .... I just stopped buying it because I wasn't too crazy about the crunch (now I've learned most styling products give you some kind of crunch) and I found less expensive alternatives.

Hair Type: 3c/4a
Goal: healthy hair. I went to the beach this summer and ripped out a bunch of hair when washing it everyday. Trying to grow it back.
PS: Wigs, Weaves, Buns
Reg: wash weekly with hair steamer. Condition with Giovanni, Aubrey Organics, Yes To Carrots, and Joico Moisture Recovery. Moisturize with KBB.

YES!!! I made just in time!! LOL

Hair Type:
 3c/4a
Goal: healthy hair & to retain as much length as possible 
Regimen: Currently I have in rope twists. I plan to keep these in for about another week or two. When my hair is not in weave, I will most likely have my real hair twisted or braided up or covered with a head scarf. My regimen is pretty basic. I've learned that less is best for my hair.
Starting Pics 
This is my hair before I got my twists in. it's about 5-6 inches all over. Hoping to get a full 7 inches by the end of the year


This are the twists that I currently have in right now
