    What's your regimen?

    I twist my hair/cornrow for up to three weeks at a time

    Every 7-10 days: wash hair while in twists. condition and moisturize.
    Every three weeks: redo the twists individually. take each twist down, finger-comb, and retwist.
    Every 6 weeks (ie every second set of twists) do a twist out during the week. Overnight prepoo with coconut oil. Detangle with a wide-tooth comb. Shampoo, condition. Moisturize, retwist.

    What Products are you using?

    I use Alaffia shea and henna shampoo. (and HE volumizing hsampoo for clarifying every six weeks). I use alaffia shea and henna conditioner (now curls curlada conditioner when i run out of alaffia).
    I use BFH desert moisturizer as a leave-in. That or Oyin Hair Dew.
    Coconut oil for overnight prepoo.


    What will you especially do for achieving this goal?
    * Up my water intake to about 4-5 glasses a day.
    *I might re-moisturize during the week to keep hair moist and supple


    We can do this, ladies, happy hair growing!

    I'm in! Two inches might finally get me to APL.

    Internally I'm gonna start back on multi-vits, biotin and MSM.
    Externally I will put a sulphur mix on my scalp at least once a week.
    Physically I will start a long overdue cardio/weight training routine, and eat cleaner.

    Looking for conditioner :)
    Here is the link tio my fotki: http://public.fotki.com/bellacnella18/

    vitamins: I am cutting back on the vitamins...they made me gain weight. I eat a balanced diet. Might take a multi daily. I will take 120mg of ginko daily though.

    externally: daily scalp massage and gently scalp scratching every other day, GHE with a deep conditioner and oil every 2-3 nights, over night. Moisturize and seal everyday. I currently am using Dove's new nourishing oil moisturizer. I use coconut oil mostly, sometimes grapeseed and peanut.

    I cowash almost everyday with Suave naturals. I am trying to cut back, but it is the only way to detangle my hair (I stretch for up to 6 months at a time).

    I shampoo once a week with a gentle shampoo, and I clarify weekly if I have build up.

    Conditioners: ORS or NTM with add ons.

    My challenge is no heat for the rest of the year and stick to a workout plan, chug more water.

    I am going to search and destroy september 1st.

    About me: I am always on the hunt for a new oil or moisturizer, I like simple hairstyles and I get bored easily so I switch thing up from time to time. I don't stick with growth aids because everything gives me a headache.

    I am currently waist length. I want my hair to sit in the curve of my back by the end of this challenge and I am basically 2 inches away from that.

    :look:

    I will do a starting pic on Sep. 1st, and will have ironed out my four month regimen by then.

    edit:

    my regimen for the next four months is...

    Daily vits -
    Biotin 1000 mcg x 2 (2,000 mcg daily)
    1 prenatal multi vitamin
    1 bamboo silica
    1 omega - 3 fish oil (1,200 mg)
    1 acidophilus
    MSM powder 1 tsp daily

    Oil massage scalp before bed then bun, braid or twist @ night on moisturized hair. (nightly moisturizers will be butters, or heavier leave in conditioner/moisturizer) Bonnet or scarf and occasionally whole head baggy if needed. Daily styles - braid/twist/bantu out styles, wash & goes styles 20-30% of the time. Buns, hair combs, hair zings and other protective styles to hide ends will be 70-80% of time.

    Moisture with a creamy leave in and spray moisture leave in (or home made spray mixtures) daily and sealed with oil or oil mixes. Mist with water or moisture spray as need thru out day for dryness, frizz or for curls.

    Oil rinse followed by co wash 1-2 x weekly with cheapie condish. Shampoo and deep condition under hooded dryer 20-30 min every Fri followed by oil rinse. Protein treatment (avocado mask) twice a month. Cassia 1x a month.

    No direct heat (flat iron, curling iron, blow dryer etc) until end of challenge or Jan 1st.

    Cassia or amla mask 1 times a month followed by deep condish.

    Last dyed Aug 19th blue black, so will be tracking my new growth by monitoring my grays...

    starting picture taken on September 2nd on rapidly reverting flat ironed natural hair. Hope the 2 inches to bring me to apl stretched by eoy

    Hmmm, I want in! I have been in lurk mode for a while, but this challenge came at the perfect time. :yep:

    My camera is dead at the moment, so I will come back and post a pic on the 1st!

    Updated Regimen: Weekly: Add a slippery conditioner to dry hair. Detangle in sections. Shampoo. Deep Condition/Condition. Seal. Enjoy the ease of shorter hair while it lasts! (I also may sometimes add a styler if I want a more defined look.)
    Moisturize and seal daily or as needed. The end. LOL.

    Products:
    shampoo- FX Wild Harvest Hydra Curls shampoo (a gem I found at Walmart. I love this poo. It does have dimethicone in it but I am sooo fine with that because I can freaking detangle with this shampoo! And it is sulfate-free.)
    conditioner- I plan to mainly use Jessicurl Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment :)lick:) but I placed an order for some Curl Junkie conditioners the other day and I will be trying those out as well. :look:
    moisturizer- Water followed by Oyin Hair Dew :lick:
    sealant- Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade :lick:

    UPDATE: So, yesterday (8-19-11) I cut my hair. I was a couple of inches away from APL in the back and now I am just at the top of my collarbone. I cut it because I didn't like the shape my hair was growing into. I probably clipped around 3-5 inches in different areas. I am in LOVE with it! And it's nice because I can just fluff my hair and go.

    ETA: I went out and bought some vitamins. I am still taking a multi-vit but not the gummies because I realized they were missing calcium and my hubby informed me that calcium is very important for women to take. (He's a pharmacist so I trust his advice!) To my vitamin reggie I have added: Omega 3,6,9; Biotin, MSM. I did my research on these and found that they are great for overall health as well as hair. :yep: I also ordered Viviscal specifically for my hair just to try. We'll see how that goes...:look:

    In please!

    Start pic will be posted once I flat iron:

    I wash with Giovanni Smooth as Silk mixed with Mane and Tail original once or twice a week. Spray hair with Jane Carter/Aussie Hair Insurance and aloe. Seal with castor oil.

    May change regimen products once I start with the silk products (ordering the 2nd bundle).

    Steam every 7 - 10 days with ORS Replenishing Pak, also DC with Giovanni's protein pack (as of right now alteratinh at a 2:1 ratio)

    Hair is mostly braided under a half wig and will probably stay that way.

    What's your regimen?
    The only regimented activities I do for sure is wash and DC w/steam weekly. I moisturize with a water spritz and oil during the week. I don't use heat usually, but I have flat ironed 3X this year, which is a lot for me.

    Use Aphogee 2 minute weekly. (new thing for me) If I don't like it I will go back to using protein as needed.

    What Products are you using?
    I'm a former PJ, so I use a variety of products I have left over from when I was active.:look: I like to mix things like honey, SAA and pathenol in my weekly DC. I generally stay away from 'cones so I won't block moisture out of my hair and I will be using petroleum products more this Winter.

    I use henna and indigo and I plan to incorporate Ayurvedic powders into my regimen, again.

    I like creamy leave-ins like M.O.M and B&B Castor Oil when I bun.

    What will you especially do for achieving this goal?
    I will start a aerobic and weight lifting routine, start and stay consistent with my vitamin/mineral and water intake.

    I will start using a sulpher/oil based topical solution to my scalp at least once per week. I also like to use rosemary EO mixed into coconut oil. These keep the itchies away.



    I will make sure I don't use hair tools that will damage my hair and/or thin it out like in the picture posted. :mad:

    I am really unhappy with my hair now!!

    I AM IN!!!

    I will include a starting pic Sept 1 after I flat iron

    Goal : REACH IT !!
    What's your regimen? For the month of Sept I will be wearing my hair out mostly since I have been bunning July and August. I will be alternating Shampoos and Cowashes weekly. For my Shampoo weeks I will be using a pre poo mix of EVOO and EVCO, shampooing with Silicon Mix, using Porosity Control and sitting for 1 hour with Silicon Mix Pearl Protein. I will use Wave Nouvea Finishing Moisturizer and air dry, then add Chi Silk infusion blow dry my roots (I am transitioning 6 months post by Sept.) and flat ironing with my Sedu. On cowash weeks I will be using Optimum Care Anti Breakage Therapy (my hair loves Ceramides). I moisture and seal daily with my Wave Nouvea and Seven Wonders Miracle Oil. For the last 3 months I will bun daily flat ironing maybe once a month, shampooing weekly with KeraCare sulfate free Hydrating Shampoo and Cowashing 1 to 2 times a week with OCABT. I will be moisturizing and Sealing with S-Curl and Castor Oil with every wash, and setting my bun with Eco-Styler Olive Oil Gel. I also try to drink at least 8 glasses of water 5 days a week, and take a multi-vitamin.
    If and when I need a protein treatment I will use a mixture of Emergencia reconstructing conditioner, 1 egg, and EVOO EVCO mixture.
    YAY GO US!!

    I'm in, I want to make APL by year end, I need these 2 inches.

    What's your regimen?
    Prepoo w/Evoo, detangle, shampoo, steam Dc every two weeks. Plait hair under half wig. Currently playing around with wearing twists since I'm tired of wigs.

    What Products are you using?
    Evoo, Bee mine shampoo and moisturizers, kimmay's leave in, a few different conditioners

    What will you especially do for achieving this goal?
    I've been slipping on massaging oil/sulfur on my scalp. Also taking vits, drinking more water, and eating better.

    **Sept 1- slowest growing part of the back of my hair (right above my nape in the middle) is baaaarely 9 inches. I always use this section as my reference point for tracking progress. I'd like that section to be 11 inches by year end.


    Not the best pic, but not straightening til Sept 24. Think the very end of my hair stops at my ring finger.
