Yay, we are gonna have the BIG hair when this is all said and done.  We've CLEO going back into her bun and Nelly getting her PS on, we're gonna have to pass out drool rags when they're revealed!  I can't wait! LoL
 
So I'm taking down rows of mini braids and converting them into cornrows.  I'll have to leave a piece in the back out for my official length check.  I'm excited about going back to wigs b/c I know my ends will definitely be covered/protected and that means good retention.
 
I'm really nervous about my Aug 2012 pic.  I hope to see some progress from April.  If not, I'll post my Aug 11 and Aug 12 comparison so I don't get discouraged.

More confirmation to go back to my wigs/extensions...
 
Length Check:
I'm in the process of converting my minis to cornrows.
My hand is at the top of my hip bone.
Two lines below my hair is when I will officially claim MBL.
My hair is severely shrunken due to WNGing in these mini braids.
Not NEARLY as much growth as I got last year between April and August. Here's why:
-I've used heat twice, once in April and once in June
-I can count on one hand the amount of times that I have properly DC'd
-I have worn my hair out A LOT in twists and twistouts. Now I know better.
Self-challenge to reach my goal:
-Get back to my weekly wash/protein/DC regi
-Use wigs and extensions (if necessary) to PS

Swifty, are u sure your hair is 'fully' stretched? I only ask bc in my head, ya last length shot looked longer. Plus, remember how I told yall the Hubby didn't 'fully' stretch my Cleo so it appeared that I was at the same length from last yr? Maybe ya hair shrunk up some?
I do think that keeping the ps movement going, especiall with Fall knocking at our doors,would give us some growth.

I really need to pamper Cleo, but I'll do so tomorow, since the boy child and I have a standing date with Catoon Planet. I hope SHE cooperates with the bunning since its been awhile.

((HUG)) Thanks for trying to keep me from getting discouraged, LUV.  It's cool though. There are a lot of variables that have changed but I still use the shirt to be consistent.

 
On my body, my hair feels longer than it did in April and June but according to the shirt, it hasn't grown much at all (about 3/4").  I can't do a naked length check b/c Swift's got big boobs that can clearly be seen from behind.Embarrassed

Hey ladies!
I know I've been ghost for awhile but I finally got some free time today to update you gals on my current hair style. I finally find someone to do the Poetic Justice/Solange inspired braids the way I wanted them. I've had them in for 3 weeks now and absolutely love them! They are so convenient and easy to manage. I usually wear it in a high bun like in this picture. I live in Florida so it's too hot to wear them down all day.



This was taken the first day classes after a looooong day on campus.

Lookin cute, Yeko!! (as always Smile)
 
Aww Cincy!  It's cool cause you needed to cut to get one step closer to solving your hair mystery.  Your hair grows fast so I'm sure you'll be back to your BAA in no time!
 
I'm cornrowed up, under my wigs.  I'm actually rocking one of my old wigs.  I wanna try out longer ones and putting them up into a bun style.
