BSL 2013 Challenge

I don't think I'll make it this year. I've been an inch away from BSL for the past 6months I swear.

I'll be there no later than March though! I am determined!

I will TRY to deep condition every other week, make sure I moisturize and seal all the time.

Chronically at BSL -_-
NikkiQ YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY LOL OK #LEGGO

-Current hair length:GRAZING (barely) APL
-Relaxed/Natural/Texlaxed/Loc'd: Natural...for now -_-
-BSL goal month:I'm shooting for the June 30th reveal, I am also graduating from college around that time, soooo...it will be a win/win for me LOL
-Current Reggie and styling choices: I still don't really have one! I typically alternate between twists, twist/braid-outs and half-wigs. If I'm in twists/mini twists, then I usually leave them in 4-6 weeks and moisturize daily. In twist outs/half wigs, it's shampoo and DC once a week with protein thrown in every once in a while (protein-sensitive) and then daily moisture with water, aloe, EVCO...
-What do you plan on changing (if anything) to make it to BSL?: I might try bunning, but I have to figure out a bunning reggie, I will also finally try and get my protein/moisture balance in check and baby my nape and right above my nape, where my stylist had to trim due to breakage. Remember to keep my hair OFF of my shoulders is big. Lastly, I might start lightly blow drying to cut down SSK's and tangles and get smoother twist-outs. LASTLY, I might just texlax...who knows?
-Post a beginning picture: This is already posted in the APL thread, but here's my most recent straightening

Morning Ladies!!!

I didnt dc/cowash yesterday:nono: I was just too tired. But I did M&S and applied my MN mix. I think Ima wait to DC/Cowash till Saturday.

I need a new hairstyle. I wear my navy bun just about everyday which I dont mind but there's like 10 more people at work who happened to mimic the style:lachen: So needless to say, it's time for a switch-a-roo:yep:

I want to try regular bunning but in order for me to bun I will need to prep my hair like a braid out. I tried to do a reg bun this morning and it looked horrible. Any naturals or texlax ladies bunning? If so how r yall doing it? I cannot figure it out. When I take my braids out my hair strinks to my chin. I was thinking about doing the braids, then taking them out the next day. Then lightly brush out the "braid-out" and then try to put my hair in a bun.

Morning! I am still wearing my hair straight, too lazy to wash and twist it and too busy during the week anyhow. Last night I had to put the flat iron to a tiny section because it had frizzed up, but I made sure to do it lightly and then moisturize and seal with a light oil. I am super worried I will have heat damage when I wash this weekend, so I am trying to just keep it cool. My hair is very cute today, I pincurled it and put 2 big rollers at the top and it turned out really nice! HHJ and have a good day ladies!

pelohelo I feel the SAME way about bunning on my loose natural hair; I can't do it, it looks awful on me! I would really like to learn some techniques or ideas on how to do this

NikkiQ I might texlax my hair when I reach BSL, because the density and texture of my hair combined WITH BSL? HA! I would die.

~BSL goal month
October 2013 (I want to be full, thick from root to ends BSL so i'm alotting myself more time than I realistically think it will take).
~Current Reggie and styling choices

Using Megatek/Ketaconazole/JBCO mix, and JBCO/MN/Garlic Oil/ Peppermint/Minced Garlic mix interchangeably. Wash & DC once a week.

~What do you plan on changing (if anything) to make it to BSL?

Laying off the heat, the front of my hair which is 16" has 5-6" of heat damage (so I will be trimming a lot during this challenge). Keeping a consistent regimen and using JBCO, MN & Megatek. I will also be keeping my hair wigged up.

No set regimen yet, except that I intend to Wash & DC my hair every week and M&S Daily.

~What do you plan on changing (if anything) to make it to BSL?

Laying off the heat, the front of my hair which is 16" has 5-6" of heat damage. Treating and slowly cutting 1" periodically off.

Taking MSM daily again 5000mcg.
Using Megatek (when i figure out how I can incorporate it into my regimen).
Applying JBCO/Garlic Oil/ MN mix every 2 days

And Wiggin it out.

This feels like the big girls club. I think I am going to hang around the APL thread for 2013 because I am going to get a trim to even up my ends.
