Have you been APL before? Yes I have. I was apl or longer when I had a relaxer and before I had gotten one.

When do you think you will make APL? Somewhere in March 2012 maybe earlier...I just realized how close I am lol.

How are you planning to reach this goal? By taking better care of my hair, protective styling, and low manipulation.

Regimen: Protein and deep moisture treatment 1x a week, shampoo 1x a week, cowash 3x a week, and seal. I'll add a picture soon.

Hey, fellow uk BHMer, it felt fantastic i always had my hair hidden or at least the ends so when i did have my hair down people were amazed i was amazed myself at times. i cut it because as much as i loved relaxer my hair didnt i felt that it was thin and sad looking even though it had length and i wanted it to be happy and thick as well as long, i transitioned for 5months and then just said fack it cut it off lol

im sO in! This is my ultimate goal for 2012
1. Post Your regime before Jan 3rd 2012. (I made the closing date later just in case there are any last minute joiners of the forum that may see it.)

I will be weaved up until december 2012. I'm doing a hardcore protective styling challenge so let's see what comes of it. Weave Regimen: Shampoo with diluted shampoo once a month, co- wash once a week and oil scalp with castor oil, deep condition every 2 weeks. take down weave every 16 weeks( clarify, protein treatment, moisture treatment, and weave back up)

2. Post a picture of your current length and state before Jan 3rd 2012.

Current length is FULL NL and Natural. (I will post a pic when I take this install down. I believe i'm grazing Shoulder length.



3. Answer the questions :
Have you been APL before? (I have never been APL in my adult or child life. This is new territory I will crossing into and i'm ultra excited!)
When do you think you will make APL? ( I have 5 inches from APL. I believe I can be there by August and full APL by the end of the year hopefully) *crosses fingers*
How are you planning to reach this goal? (hardcore protective styling, moisture/protein balance, taking my nioxin, biotin and multivitamin and also drinking tons of water, using my MT and JBCO mixture. )

hey guys!!! i got 2/3 of my silicon mix products in the post today im waiting on one more its coming from the dominican so its gona be a while *sigh* i cant wait to try them im not a PJ BUT i have alot of conditioners i figured coz i have curly hair id use them up by putting them on my ends for moisture in the morning when styling.....does anyone think this is a bad idea at all?


Posted By: KikiScorpio92
Date Posted: Oct 21 2011 at 1:25pm
@Choongy Not a bad idea at all when I was on holiday with no leave in left in condtioners in when I went swimming , went beach and since coming back still do it often, leaves my hair super soft and moisturised.

I'm so close.
I'm going to be in ps, so I might be there really soon,
but that will only be the longest hair in the back.
If I want my hair to be the same length--and I do--I know i'll have to cut my hair eventually.


Posted By: KikiScorpio92
Date Posted: Oct 22 2011 at 7:37am
@AmberColour same also with my longest are back the layers but I did a brief cut last motnh so it's probably just at CBL in the back the front don't even get me started on that mess.

Updated my fotki again!!

And did some rearranging. It was a God awful mess. haha.

Anyway, a question for the ladies who baggy. How often do you baggy, and how much is.. too much for you? haha

Also, I'm trying to figure out a new staple line of con for my hair-- What do you guys think is the best con and DC?

This is so weird starting over again--- I fell off hard! My last album was from 2009! haha.

I also made an album to show where I was before I BC'ed in August. Located in my 2012 APL Challenge folder.

@ydlwhite Im doing GHE its similar to baggying some say its the samething I dont mind either which way its called, anywho I do it every other night and apply my growth aid the night im not doing it if that makes sense?

Hopefully the pic works.

My regimen:
Shampoo/DC once per week
Clarify once per month
Moisturize and seal every day.
Co-wash every 3 days

Ive never been APL before so im excited!

I believe I should hopefully make APL by Aug 2012

Plan to make it to APL by bunning with a phony pony and wearing half wigs until Aug. Im new so this is my first challenge! Good luck e everybody

yea to be fair when i was making them i had lots of time on my hands i used to do my own weave installs too but my hairdresser has advised i do not wear wigs or weaves now i am not relaxed because my hair needs moisture badly!!! and knowing me i will leave it dry like the dessert and it end up breaking off 


Posted By: KikiScorpio92
Date Posted: Oct 25 2011 at 2:18pm
You got me thinking I don't even remember why my relaxed hair broke off it was moisturised and everything , I wish I was that hands on with my own hair I mean with sewing in and putting extensions in, one day.. one day. Cool

did you colour or straighten it alot, unfortunately i love to be blonde but my relaxed hair didnt

lol trust me i couldnt canerow for shyt!!! i just practised even when i thought i had crappy installs people liked them so i guess over time i got better at it,  Google and Youtube has helped me alot with my hair care with finding people with similar hair/goals/ideas ect and of course BHM


Posted By: KikiScorpio92
Date Posted: Oct 25 2011 at 2:51pm
Nope not at all I was relaxed from the age of 7 or 8 to the age 12, my mom would do it and she wasn't harsh at all so no colour, no straightners it might have been down to the fact I was growing also she only relaxed it every 6 months so now I understand about stretches my hair would go back natural , maybe it was that. CryShockedLamp

Well since I started this journey I  googled flat twists, canerow and watched videos, it gets better everyday but I'm low manipulation so I don't care for presentation now. LOL
