Hello ladies! First weekend of the new year, and I am starting strong!
I did a henna/DC treatment today, boy my hair loves henna! Beautiful shinny hair that feels and looks strong.
How is the challenge going on your end ladies?

I will be a part of this as I am beginning my healthy hair journey,after repeated perms, color, etc that I honestly didn't need but got because others told me it would help straighten my hair but honestly it just made my hair thin and dry.
My hair regimen includes pre-pooing only before shampooing and I do this every other week. Then I use regular conditioner, protein treatment, moisturizing deep conditioner, and then moisturize and seal with leave in conditioner and oil. So that regimen only occurs every two weeks, the weeks in between I just co-wash and follow up with moisture and seal. Im trying to make sure I moisture and seal twice a day but mainly massage my hair twice a day to see if it helps yield results. A month ago just started doing the GHE method every other day and now doing inversion. :D I started that today; so Im hoping as long as I use no heat, do ghe, do inversion, and massage my scalp everyday while dealing with wigs, braids, and some roller sets every now and then, hopefully I will at least be close to BSL at the end of 2014. Also take gummy multivitamins because that is the only vitamin I will remember to take. I chose this regimen because although I am crazing long length, I am doing methods that are cheap or at no cost at all, and that has seemed to be beneficial to other women. I'm not into the whole monistat, sulfur, etc. stuff others use. I believe if you keep it simple you will yield the same results! :) 
I have a picture but I don't know how to upload it.

Okay, thanks. I was just thinking that there are some shampoos with sulfur in them (like Sulfur 8,) so i should be able to add sulfur to my own shampoo without detrimental effects? Maybe someone else could chime in...?


I just think it might be bad if you leave it in your hair overnight, but a shampoo does not stay in your hair near long enough to cause the kind of dryness I read about so it might work

Hello ladies. I am new to the community as well, although I must confess that I've been reading the posts for awhile and it's been incredibly helpful on my hair journey.

Right now, I'm SL and I think I am aiming for BSL by the end of 2014 although my real focus is keeping my hair healthy. I'm currently texlaxed but want to transition to all natural; the last time I got a texturizer was August 2013 and God willing that was my last. I got a texturizer because I did not know how to handle my hair while short and got frustrated.

I think I am 3c/4a natural but after the texturizer I don't know anymore   

I just got a trim to get rid of all my split ends, and realized that the way my hairstylist has been cutting my hair is the main reason of all my split ends. I got an inch cut in August and just yesterday got one and inch and a half cut again

My main goal is to keep my ends healthy while I get rid of this haircut and texlaxed hair. So here it goes:

This is my long term hair program with things I regularly do to my hair within my regime.

1. Henna every other week
2. Hot oil (own blend) every other week
3.DC every other week
4. Special treatment (cellophane, protein treatments, Cherry Lola treatment, etc) every other week
5. Castor oil/ coconut oil+ Shea butter prepoo every other week
6. Dusting every 6-8 weeks
7. Professional trim every 3-4 months
8. Rosemary rinse once a month
9. Oatmeal rinse every month
10. Clarifying shampoo every month
11. ACV scalp cleaning and rinse once a month

My night routine consists of:

1. Growth treatment applied to scalp (monistad in water, nioxin, etc)
2. Mist ends lightly with water and I apply a leave in conditioner
3. Seal my ends with oil
4. Cover hair with a satin scarf and night night

On Wednesdays I alternate between sulfur oil or Grow oil applied to my scalp; then I lightly damp my hair with water, apply a leave in conditioner and my prepoo oil blend and do the green house method. The next day I cowash. Weekends is when I do the heavy stuff.

I also take a multivitamin, biotin and MSM daily? (Well, I try)

Well ladies there it is. Let me know what you think of my extensive routine and if you have any questions I'd be more than happy to answer them. BTW, I tried to upload a recent picture of my hair but couldn't figure out how. Happy growing and Happy New Year


I love to grow from SL to BSL in one year! I have a question about your routine. On Wednesdays, do you apply sulfur/growth oil, water, then condish & pre-poo, and baggy overnight? The reason I'm asking is because I want to start using my sulfur mix again, but don't know if I can use it in my pre-poo. I would apply it to all my hair, not just my scalp. I would be interested in adding sulfur and eucalyptus oil to my pre-poo condish and leaving it in for about 1 hour before washing. Do you think that's a good or bad idea?


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maybe the SL to BSL is wishful thinking Wink

I made a mistake. I do this routine on Tuesday nights and I leave it overnight. I only use the sulfur oil on my scalp for two reasons: first it is a growth aid so I figure it should only be applied to the scalp, the second reason is that I read that sulfur oil is very drying to the hair and can possibly lead to hair damage.

I am not an expert by any means but I wouldn't apply sulfur oil to the entire length of my hair, that's just me though. If you do, can you please let me know how it worked for you? Good luck and keep me posted please!

BTW My prepoo oil mix has eucalyptus essential oil in it.

Hello ladies. Can I please join this challenge?

My hair is currently shoulder length (a little past collar bone length when stretched.) My first goal is to reach CBL unstretched/APL when stretched. I hope to reach this by December 2014 (I'm not being greedy for length lol.)

I usually keep my hair protected by tree braids, weaves, twists, or box braids. My hair is currently out & natural (until I can afford to get twists.) While my hair is out, I will pree-poo with a light protein conditioner, wash with moisturizing shampoo, and DC with AO Honeysuckle Rose once a week.

I would like to add sulfur/eucalyptus oil, but I'm still trying to figure out how I'd like to do that.
