    I did a major trim on my bangs. I cut two inches, so now I'm working on getting those back. I can't wait until next month to get some decent products for my hair. I'm going back to Qhemet. My goal is to be SL by the end of the year and APL by next April.

    I ended up trimming my ends a month early (Sunday night). Hopefully I can still retain some kind of length with my more frequent trim schedule.

    Still trying to figure things out however this is what i do :

    Take manetabolism and garlic supps daily
    Drink 2L water daily
    Invert monthly

    Cleanse and DC twice monthly, once in 2weeks.
    Re-do cornrows monthly and wig it( the 2nd time i wash and DC in the cornrows) My hair is fine and cornrowing once a month and only washing twice a month has decreased my shedding and thickened it up.
    JBCO on scalp 3 times weekly with massaging
    M&S alternate days with KCKT

    So drinking water
    Taking supplements to support diet
    Massaging scalp and invert to increase blood flow
    And low manipulation!
    That's the secret! Yet, people will still do too much and buy too much! One day we will all catch on! I know Im getting it when it comes to my natural hair. Less is more, diet and water intake is important! Lol Awesome growth retention you have there lady!

    I'm still religiously taking my vitamins and drinking > 2 quarts of water daily. I'm also inverting a few times a month and using Nioxin scalp treatment daily. I want 2 inches by the end of the year.

    I've recently upped my protein, and water intake. I'm adding eggs, and more seafood to my diet. I'm also planning to drink at least 2 liters of water a day.

    I've been getting steady growth but want to do those two things for overall health reasons. If I get added growth that would be icing on the cake.

    I've stopped measuring my hair with a measuring tape because I don't think I'm doing it right. My nape has continued to stay the same measurement but it's obviously grown. Now my nape reaches right under my boobs. So I know I'm doing something wrong with the measuring.

    Overall it's been a very successful year as far as my growth is concerned. I bc'd May 21st, 2015 at slightly longer than shoulder length and now I'm bsb.
