Didn't make goal this year due to terrible hair practices but hopefully I will have done much better next year.
I love how my flat twist out turned out!!! ACK! I just wish that I had someplace to go this afternoon so that I could show it off!
I realize though that fussy ends are my downfall, in that if the ends aren't smooth in the twist out unraveling the twists leads to detangling and frizzy hair... got to figure out how to style with smooth ends this year...
I didn't quite make it. I think in six months, I'll be there (in the back at least
I relaxed last night w/ nariobi sensitive-2 containers.
And I trimmed my ends as best as I could. I trim w/ the moon and last night was the last day for the winter season.
I wrap my hair and I love the fullness before I flat iron it but I didn't wrap it smoothly enough so I had to break out the heat, which makes it looks very thin, especially after a relaxer (run on sentence!)
After a few weeks, it's back to sew in weaves, getting back on track with applying my oils and taking ALL my vitamins.

Since I plan on putting my hair in two strand twists again, I've decided that today would be length check day. First pic show my hair over the last three years with the last one being the style from yesterday.
The second pic is today, day old twist out and final length check for 2013. Hoping to claim APL early next year!
Here's my starting photo. I've been on my natural hair journey for 3 years. I'm still only just SL. I'm hoping I'll make it to APL next year.
OOps, I didn't read your post before I commented. Yes you've reached APL, congrats lady!
