    I don't have a specified regimen yet, or products chosen, but I will get myself together for Jan 1st to get to my goal!

    Thanks for starting the thread.
    I think I'm in. I'm full APL so I'm certain I'll reach BSL this year, and hoping for MBL.
    Hair appointment in a couple of weeks and plan to post a starting pic then.

    I'm joining again this year. :heart3: I hope to reach full BSL by the end of next year. My hair is very uneven so my goal is to even things out at that point.

    I'm in.

    My hair stats:
    Natural, 4c/b, APL. Comb approx. every 3-4 months. Last trim- Dec 18.

    Instead of the regular dusting I was doing in my natural state (coil by coil), in June last year I decided to straighten (first time in 4 years) for a trim and progress pic. I took off about 3 inches of spilts. Going forward I will trim on straightened hair.
    I regularly use clay, shampoo, moisture and protein DCs, DIY Shea butter blends-consistently from around Dec 2017, Ayurveda, and head massage (although I could stand to increase this one.

    Don't worry about it for now, we will figure it out. Ion have iphones. I've had virgin mobile since forever and had to downsize from laptop to tablet, which is what I am working from now. I will research this later on after I meet the obligations I have for the day. In the meantime, don't worry your pretty lil head.

    I have to use a resize app to post directly from my phone. I have an iphone as well.

    I resize my picture to 400x400 and then post directly to the thread by clicking upload a file @SunySydeofLyfe

    Perfect!
    I actually love APL, when it's even it's gorgeous. Sometimes I think my terminal length is APL and that is long. But I'm definitely still going to push for BSL. I've stepped up my game w the hood dryer for DCs, and cut out the Dominican blow outs and.... Men! Haha

    My bra is super low. It’s the 13 mark on the T-shirt. MBL would be 16 and WL is 18.

    Working on my regimen. Few things for sure are the greenhouse, sulphur ‘grease’, vitamins/msm and xcel 21.
