I am relaxed.

This summer, I plan on (hope to) thickening up my hair a little, especially in the nape. I just put cowashes back into my rotation two weeks ago, and I plan to keep those up, especially once it gets hotter. I will be sticking to my same old products, with the addition of JBCO and Mizani Moisturfusion.

By the end of the summer, I hope my hair has thickenend and that I have gained some length. I would like my hair to get longer in the front and get the back a little past APL. Mainly, I just want it to stay nice and healthy. I'm actually fairly happy with it at the moment. :yep:

I am natural.

For the summer, I am going to wear a sew in (kinky wavy curly) that is very similar to my own natural texture.

By the end of the August, I am hoping to retain 3 inches and be full APL.

I'm relaxed and I plan to stretch until August or July if I can't do that. I'll be braided under a wig, moisturizing the ends and sealing them. Washing my braided hair once weekly and do a DC at the end of each month; braid the hair up again and start the whole process over... I'm already 3 months post, this is the only way I can get through the summer w/o a touch up, lol...

My goal is to be APL by August.

Are you relaxed/natural/texlaxed/transitioning? I am Relaxed (what other people call "tex-laxed."

What are you planning to do with your hair for the summer? I wanted to braid my hair but my SO is not trying to hear that. I'll probably just be roller setting once a week as usual to maintain my dark hair color from Indigo.

What's your goal by the end of summer? My goal by the end of the summer is to have hair that reaches the bottom of my shoulder blades when curled. Right now, it's only BSL when I wear it straight... barely.

I'm planning on wearing two braids this summer (I spend a lot of time on the beach in summer). Other times, I'll be breaking in my Carusso steam rollers.

My goal by summer's end is to be past BSL.

What are you planning to do with your hair for the summer?
I'm planning on doing a bunch of wash n go's, curly ponytails, and if I think I can actually do this without getting frizz... rollersetting and bunning my hair. Last year I couldn't straighten my hair between June and beginning of September so that's going to stink, but at the same time it'll be a nice surprise for me in Sept for my 2 yr anniversary.

What's your goal by the end of summer?

I hope to be MBL by the end of the summer. I get giddy just thinking about it LOL

Relaxed (3 weeks so far)

What are you planning to do with your hair for the summer?
Take extra care of it especially since it's relaxed. Keep hair and expecially the ends moisturized and conditioned. DC at least once a month. Wash it more often - at least twice a week instead of just once a week.


What's your goal by the end of summer?
TBL (minimum).
