    Please add me to the challenge! :grin:

    Regimen:
    WnG's, Low-heat Stretched styles, buns and lots of deep conditioning along with protein every 4-6 weeks, flat ironed hair on occasion.
    Plans:
    -Get my protein treats back on tract.
    -Eat right, exercise, stress less, drink water.
    -Less to no heat at least 3 weeks out a month.
    -Finding a ceramic blow dryer w/ a diffuser for the winter.
    -Investing some brand of curly products
    (i.e. Kinky Curly Custard, Knot Today)
    -Starting steam treats
    -Maybe getting good trim then maintaining my ends with a Split-ender.
    -Giving myself highlights... :look:

    What? Another thread of beautiful long hair to keep up with? :drunk:

    How about we consolidate all of these long hair threads, and make one "As-long-as-it-can-grow-and-still-look-good Challenge" thread instead? ;) :lol:

    I'll be popping in here to cheer you all on. :yep:
