    Me too! I wish we had more style options, my bun doesn’t hold up well in this humidity.

    I'm washing my hair today. I've been wearing it out for the last week so detangling took a little longer today. I'll put in twists but I don't know when I'll get to wash my hair again. I measured last wash day and my hair's reached 12-13 inches in most sections. Hopefully, I'll be able to get to 14-15 inches by December and that should get me to my longest length and allow me to be BSL-MBL. I'll try to add pictures later.

    Nothing much new here process wise but I've been trying new products because I want to switch things that are easy to pick up and that I don't need to drive to get.

    I've switched from Kinky Curly Curling Custard to Camille Rose Curl Maker with good results. The CVS near me has DevaCurl but only has the light gel so I'm not sure if that will work but I do like the large size.

    Publix had a bogo on not your mother's naturals recently so I picked up the Royal Honey & Kalahari Desert Melon and Coconut Milk & African Marula Tree Oil Conditioners. So far I've only tried the first but it has great slip and my hair feels moisturized so I'm pretty satisfied.

    I'd still like to find a replacement for Kinky Curly Knot Today.

    So I'm pretty sure I'm not going to reach BSL/MBL this year. My mom accidentally cut off 5 inches of my hair when she was taking down my crochet braids the other day. So I have one side of my hair that is darn near BSL and the other half is barely APL. I guess I'll have to try again on this challenge next year.

    Girl, there are 6 months left in this year!
    I'm not sure what your normal growth rate is but you better get to pill popping, growth aid massaging and protective styling.
    I know you're disappointed but I think you may still have time to make full BSL this year.
    Just my 2 cents.

    What? How does that even happen? You don’t need scissors to remove crotchet braids. I’m sorry that happened. I’m sending growth spurt vibes your way

    I’m currently under the dryer with Masquintense dc. I haven’t washed my hair in over a month... It was time. I washed my man’s dishes, he washed my hair. I’m cool with it lol

    It's awful that that happened.
    There's still a lot of time left in the year, I think you could still make it and even if you don't you'd probably be really close. Best of luck :rose:

    I can’t wait to shampoo and style my hair later today. I want to try a new blowout product by garnier, but I probably won’t get it until next week.

    I’m really on the grow. I don’t even want to trim right now. Every cm counts lol

    The past couple of weeks I tried doing part of my routine out of the shower again. I feel like my hair looks better and retains moisture better when I do everything in the shower so I'm going back to that.
