Requirements to join:

1. You must be 100% natural.
2. You must be serious.
3. You must have BC'd in 2010 and/ or have no more than 4 inches of stretched hair.(Spin off challenge for people with longer hair/09'BC).FROM BC TO WAIST LENGTH! Natural growth and health CHALLENGE. Spinoff for 09 BC. - Long Hair Care Forum (Exceptions may be made for people who have lost hair due to ill-health or trauma and those on the border) PM me.
4. Your hair goals must be for healthy, natural WL or beyond hair.

HOW THE CHALLENGE WILL WORK!

Please, check in twice monthly minimum this is a support-group style challenge. We will be giving feedback, asking questions and giving praise.

The focus will be on WHAT IS WORKING and if something is not working addressing it immediately. Please ask for help asap so there are MINIMAL SETBACKS!!

KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR HAIR TYPE. Know your hair type and what it needs. Please have or be trying hard to develop a regimen that is suitable for your hair type.

CONSISTENCY is key, if you are not consistent, you will slow your progress and may sustain damage. Posting regularly here can keep you on track and focused.

UPDATES for hair length and hair health will be done in JUNE and DECEMBER of each year and any other time you want to. Measure hair, take pics and check condition. Inform us whenever you trim.

Each month a product/technique will be chosen as Product/Technique/Style of the Month based on what was most beneficial to challegers in the previous month.

CHALLENGE START DATE JULY 1, 2010. Please have current pics and measurements posted by then.

THIS CHALLENGE DOSE NOT END UNTIL YOU TOUCH WL OR DECEMBER 31, 2013. Everyone should be there by then even if you, trim regularly, are tall, have a minor setback or grow slowly. If this part scares you this challenge is not for you.

If you cut off long relaxed hair because you want long natural hair this challenge is especially for you. I have knowledge about hair growth I grew dry SL relaxed hair to full MBL relaxed hair and then BC'd. I will grow it again and so will you.

HAPPY HEALTHY NATURAL HAIR GROWING!!!!


Exceptions:
The only way you can be in this challenge with more than 4 inches (round down if not a full inch) of hair is if you last relaxed after October 09' (There has to be a cut-off)

Transitioners can join when they BC if their hair is close in length on average to the length of most challengers at the time.

Naturals can join anytime if their hair is close in length on average to the length of most challengers at the time.

NO ONE MAY JOIN AFTER July 1, 2011.



REMINDER, I will update the challenger list about once a month but if you have not posted your length in inches (in the thread do not PM me) and are not 100% natural you will not be added. Join in the discussion as soon as you post your length. WELCOME!

Contact me or Pookaloo if you have any questions!

This will be intense but we all know it takes time and effort to grow very long lengths.

This will be like a supportive boot camp! :grin:

Can someone sneak into my house at night while I'm sleeping and do the BC for me? :giggle: I can't part with my scraggely see thru ends! It's my PROOF OF PROGRESS. What is wrong with me?!?! Today marks 13 weeks post texlax for me which typically means Texlax Day....but I have recently decided to transition to natural I'm not ready to BC yet! :sad: I'm on the border but I'll be subscribing to this thread to support you all. Prettyeyes, I'll probably send you a PM in a few months begging to join. Good luck ladies!

I am working on revamping my regi now that I am natural but I am not changing much and I will be in protective styles this summer.

I want to join but I don't measure my hair b/c I don't know how to or where to start and I don't have measuring tape. The best I can do is take pictures. I hope that doesn't disqualify me or anything

Let's do this.

My hair is uneven. My longest section is the back which is probably about an inch and some. My hubby is going to even it up today (I don't like uneven hair). I co wash everyday mainly at night with various products. Right now I'm using Wen which I like a WHOLE lot better on my natural hair than I did on my relaxed. I am not using any sulfates. I steam 1 or 2 times per week.

I'm looking forward to this.:yep:

A pic would be helpful and stretching a piece would be great too!

OOOOHHHHHH Yeah Count me in!! :yep: I just took hair pics for my one month nappiversary on June 14th and have about 3 inches of hair stretched. My regimen is just about perfected and on point--I am finally retaining moisture from overnight baggying and I co-wash 3 to 4 times per week. I just bought Marley braid hair and am about to begin round one of kinky twists. I'll post pics of my twa by this evening or Monday.
:boxing: OPERATION GROW BABY GROW!!!:boxing:

We got this ladies!!
