Hey ladies,
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in joining me for a BSL challenge. My goal is to be touching BSL by May 2009 and a full thick BSL by Dec. 2009. The challenge will run from now until Dec. 31, 2009. So....who's with me??
 
The Rules:
  • Low-manipulation/protective styles (roller sets, pin curls, buns, phony ponies, braids, sew-ins, wigs, etc.)
  • Deep condition at least 1x a week
  • Moisturize and seal ends
  • Protein treatment as needed
  • Limited heat usage
  • Stretch relaxers at least 10 weeks
  • Trim/dust ends as needed
  • Massage scalp at least 2x a week or excercise at least 3 x a week
  • Drink plenty of water (you should be drinking at least half your body weight in ounces)
  • Eat healthy (limit junk food)
  • Get plenty of sleep (at least 6-8 hours)
  • OPTIONAL: Take your vitamins (I know that not everyone can or wants to take vitamins,but make sure you are getting your nutrients from what you eat)

I'm in (lord knows I do not need to be anymore challenges but anyways)
 
I wash weekly and dc, keep my hair in plaits (no extensions or anything) wear half-wig for protective styling.
 
Beginning this week I'll be cowashing more often and I only use conditioner and baking soda to clarify, if I feel I have too much build up I will just use baking soda w/warm water.
 
I also use peppermint oil when washing my scalp, it's also added in my MT. I'll be getting my Claudies elixir soon! YAY!!!
 
Currently nl (I think, not sure had to cut off some damn split ends) Idk I might still be sl...I don't even know if I want to know my length either. Plus I'm in the hide your hair challenge. So I have to figure out how to keep track of length w/o using heat to check....
 
I know I'm getting my BSL by Dec 09.........

I want to be BSL in 09! Hopefully I will be touching BSL in April and I will be full BSL in October.

I keep a simple regimen. All I do is wash and DC my hair 1x a week, and put it in plaits for the week. I also take it out and moisturize and seal with EVCO. Starting pic is in avatar (taken in July)
