Hi my ladies, I also didn't make APL due to many setbacks, the last one was just before my last relaxer where I didn't detangle my hair before washing it and my hair matted so badly. But I feel this was a year of lessons for me, the big one being STAY AWAY FROM THE SALONS. I will do better next year. But I do see some progress.

I am probably an inch or two longer than I was at the beginning of this challenge. I trimmed a lot and used way too much heat. I joined the 2015 challenge and hope to be fully natural APL by the end of it.

I'm going to head over to the apl/bsl 2015 thread just to keep track of everyone. i already signed up for 2 other challenges so i was trying to limit how many i post in.

As for my hair i think this is going to be the year of me not seeing it at all. i am so fed up now I just wanna keep it covered. Instead of wearing it down like i wanted this week i just put it into a bun. ordered another wig but since the holidays it probably wont even be here til the week after this week

Okay. So I thought my hair didn't grow well this year, but I've seen a MASSIVE difference with last year's progress. I'm soo happy with my progress. I straightened it last week and I've taken pics this week. My hair is starting to revert so it looks a little wavy in the pics.

I'm not great at length check pics but I think these are alright.

The pic on the left my hair was taken on 31 December 2013. I didn't take any back pics. And the right is today. Both pics were taken with hair that has started to revert.

So I guess I am APL at the back and sides. I have a way to go with the front. I'm joining 2015 APL / BSL challenge and I'm hoping to get to BSL by December.
This is honestly the longest my hair has ever been and I didn't think it would even get there.

My wig came today so will be wigging it all year.

I was looking at this pic and was saying to myself " am I REALLY Apl? " it's taken a very long time to get to where I am. Ive had a lot of set backs.

Thanks for all the info on this thread and encouragement. I can't wait to see where my hair gets to next year.

Loll, you know what, I only straighten once a year so a lot of the time I pull my hair to see where it is. Most of the time my son is helping me if I can't reach it. All this year I haven't been able to reach the back until today. Even my September pic I posted my son had to help me.

In my eyes it hasn't grown until I straightened.
It's the same when you loose weight. Others see it before you do lol.

I still don't believe it though lolol
