Your hair looks great and I love how it's longer root to tip in the front than the back, which make for less extreme layers. Mine is about the same length all around which makes the layers more extreme than I want. I'm hoping I can grow it long enough that the next time I go to the salon, when I get it cut back to WL or or even BSL, I can get it cut more like yours. But the back more and the front less
Thank you :)

Hello! Checking in..My hair is doing ok,had a little shedding that was because both my parents had Covid & I was stressing out,but my parents are doing well and I’m back on track..

**I joined the Curly Proverbz hair challenge,to amp up my hair game...Applied some Neges hair growth oil on my scalp & I changed my MSM.

Happy Hair Growing!
I'm glad your parents are doing okay!

Hey everyone! I wish I had a better update but I will be taking a break from the boards for a couple weeks as major life event has occurred.

I hope by then I will be able to post progress pics. I'm still going to maintain my regime to the best of my abilities.

Don't worry, God has me and I will be back in the race with you all in no time. Even if that means I'm somersaulting my way back in. hehe

Definitely take care of your life and we will be waiting for your when you get back.

So I did wash, a protein tretment, blow dried with an attachment, and trimmed. The part that I always measure went from 20" to 18.5", which was in my target range. I then put into braids with 1B and an ombre of black/purple/hot pink.

My hair comes very close to the ends of the braids so there wasn't a lot of room to do the hot water set. I really don't want braids longer than this. I'd actually prefer them a little shorter, but that can't be done, I guess. So not sure if or how I'll do braids if they get longer.

I think one night I was watching YouTube and a lady had long hair, but she wanted a short braided bob(I think), so what they did was kinda fold her hair in half (I don’t remember if it was braids or something. It was late lol) put an elastic to hold it, and just braided to the length she wanted. That might be something you’d be interested in since you don’t want super long braids.

I'm so late, but I want to join this challenge. I've been stuck at waist length for a long time, and I feel like my hair is short, but I know it isn't. My goal is tailbone length. My problems the ends. When I trim, they seem to get raggedy again very quickly. I don't think I treat the ends much different from the rest of my hair. I'm going to trim again in a few days, and try to figure out a regimen for the ends.
