I've been trying not to cut my hair either LOL. I usually try to trim my own ends and take off to much but now I'm focusing on keeping the ends healthy so I wont have to cut as much.

The methods to help me increase hair growth will go as followed;
GHM-5x a week
inversion methods-once a month for seven days
LOC
conditioner with silicon once a month, I don't find it harmful to my hair but due to some readings on websites I will not put it in excess amounts and co-wash with it.
and
V05 clarifying conditioner and v05 strong hair conditioner for my co-wash followed by kertain spray by organix for extra protection and African best oil on my ends 2x a week

I have not done a protein treatment yet, but some of the products I use contain protein in it. But I will do a deep protein treatment probably once every two months.
oil

Having a major set-back due to wearing my afro out .So I'm protecting my ends more, I did a twist-out last night and plan on wearing this for 2-3 days and then redoing the style and if I get tired with the style then back to wigs for me Tongue.
GOOD LUCK ON YOUR JOURNEY LADIES!! Time is on our side! Lets make this journey a good one!

I've been keeping twisties in for 3-5 days and then taking them down and wearing my puff for 2 days and then back to the twisties but I did a no-heat blowout which involved combing AND there was slight breakage which I am all the way against. I also did a onion,garlic powder,tea tree oil and coconut oil rinse with conditioning from dove on saturday and then yesterday (tuesday 4/14/14) I did a scalp massage using tea tree oil and 'thicking oil' from softee. I've also been green housing every night since monday and before monday I was green housing every other night.

funny story somebody told me to was my hair with dishwasing liquid and not put any conditioner in it because all that stuff is 'cosmetic' and was dead serious Confused this women has 3b with some 3c texture but idk if thats makes a diff lmao but ANYWHO

UPDATE!! STILL UP ON MY GREENHOUSING METHOD. still applying tea tree oil to my roots (new routine) and coconut oil to ends. Also been experiancing some breakage,I'm trying not to have any set backs though..funny thing is the breakage did not occur intill i did the no heat blowout by combing my hair 6 days ago  hopefully I can stop this madness

You might want to add some watered down conditioner before applying oil. You need some moisture to seal with those oils, they do nothing alone. if you want the breakage to slow. Do not listen to the person who said something about dish soap. That sounds ridiculous.

By Dec 2014 I hope to be mid back length By this time next year I hope to be waist length.
My hair is 15 1/2 inches and I want it to be 20 inches by May 2015. 

The ways I hope to get there
Reducing heat usage to once every 2 months at the most. 
Shampooing with chagrin valley shampoo bar once a week.
Leaving hair alone.
Deep condition with every wash.
Taking a multi vitamin.
Only comb when hair is drenched in conditioner.
Leaving hair in a bun or wash and go until next wash.
Using protein after heat.

My goal is to be MBL .  My hair has rally been growing a lot the past year and I think its because I have just been leaving my hair alone . Just wearing u-part wigs and I wash and condition my hair every week.
