I totally forgot about this challenge! I didn't realize that it's been so long. I just gained some new vigor after recently reaching APL (super excited). Is it too late to join again?
Congrats on reaching APL @keranikki. I know the feeling all too well. I'm on my 4th trip there this year. Next stop after reaching APL for the 4th time is BSB and this right here is my intentional last stop with my hair. Once I reach that, I'm looking to reach other goals that have nothing to do with hair.

Thank you! :) BSL is my next goal. I’m super excited. This is the longest my hair has ever been.

Heeeelllllooooo Ladies! :lol:
It’s been a minute.
Let me update
So I’ve added MC heavenly halo, MC moisture line and Naptural85s Butter and oil products to my staple rotation. I have seen some growth more thickness though his time around but noticeable length. No straightening still.
I am still PSing but I have switched to wait for it ...,






Crochet braids. YASSSS!!!!! HUNTY!

I stumbled upon one main YouTuber then a couple more who explained it and did tutorials. It’s been really good for me so far. I did my first install 8 weeks ago and just did my second install and I mixed two types of curls. I think my max time is 6 weeks the hair is still fresh soft and bouncy those last 2 weeks it looked good but started to feel crunchy. I will post the main YT below she just reviews the hair so she saved me a lot of time so I didn’t have to try different hairs to find ones that will last for weeks at a time and even if they get wet.





This can be done with straight hair packs too but that’s harder IMO.
Happy hair growing ladies.
My new install pics attached.

Last year was all about finding my regimen and ensuring its simplicity.

This year, it’s about tackling my shedding issue. I have always shed like a dog, but it has gotten worse. The shedding caused me to go back to my PJing ways to find a cure. I now have various products that I’m rotating, only to find out I’m deficient in Vitamin D :eek::mad: Like extremely deficient.... I am basically at zero (3 nanograms to be exact).

I’m still at APL due to a much needed trim that took off about an inch. Since it took me 2 months to get back to APL, I’m assuming I grow .5” a month. If this assumption is true, I should make BSL by December.

I’ll post a regimen when I’m done tweaking it.

Might want to check your iron (anemia will make hair shed and break) and vitamin B results if it’s on the most recent report Also moisture protein balance, stress and high manipulation of the hair affects growth too. HTH

Luckily, my iron is great. I working on the moisture part of the moisture/protein balance equation. The manipulation part is tough, since I workout. I’m going to evaluate my life this afternoon to see where any stress lingers. I don’t want to convince myself I live a stress free life, if I’m unaware of any unknown stressors.

Thank you for your wonderful input. :)
