    HIP LENGTH AND BEYOND 2019 "CHALLENGE" IS IN SESSION!
    :clap::yay: Lets do it!

    Ok all you ladies that KNOW you can make it, show us what you got! This is a "give it all you got" challenge. That means no nonsense.

    Do: protective style. Protective styles that pull on your edges is NOT ALLOWED. That goes for wigs combs too. No tight buns or braids allowed.

    Do: moisturize and seal your hair at least once a week, especially the ends. I personally think the ends should be moisturized and sealed TWICE per week.

    Do: share every length retention/ moisture retention method you know in this thread. We're a team. Team work makes the dream work!

    Do NOT: Over trim. YOU ARE NOT permitted to trim more than twice in 2019 so get your trims done before the challenge. :supergrin::rofl:we trying to grow exceptionally long hair right?! So put those shears DOWN.

    DO: TAKE lots of pictures!:morepics::morepics: :needpics:I want this thread to look like Jet Magazine. We building portfolios up in here this year! Starting pictures must be posted before January. I want to see more action, less talking. Show us more than you can tell us. :flahssssss:;). You must show us your hair every 1st of the month.

    Let me know if I've missed anything. Lol this is my only challenge I've started since 2009 so I'm rusty.

    Challenge starts January 1st 2019. Let's get in shape. Start taking your vitamins now that way they'll be good and lodged tight in your system prior to challenge. Say your prayers because we'll need Jesus for this blessing for sure.

    Blessings to all you!! :grouphug:.


    Oh, if a HL challenge was already started I'll delete this. Let me know please.

    Hmmm would like to join but can't commit to only 1 trim...I flat iron 2-3 times per year and trim about 1/4 inch each time. Can we have at least 2 trim passes? That way I can do a March/October time frame.

    *Back*

    I made HL already, but had a set back after the baby got here. So my goal is to reach HL again. Committing to monthly pics will be tough, but I'm in. Will add pic next wash.

    I don't know, yet.

    It sounds fun, though! Let me think about it a little bit more. I got my seat front and center so in the least, I can cheer everyone on!

    I think I am past hip length. I'm in the realm of WHIP, if not approaching or at tailbone length. Does having two strands at tailbone length count? That ain't a question! In my book, it does: 1 strand there is GOAL! But you didn't ask me all that.

    I can only see my true length when I heat straighten my hair. I haven't straightened my hair or seen it straight since September 2014, which is almost 5 years ago. I don't plan to heat straighten until August/September 2019, if that. Hence, my hair dilemma.

    *Rubbing hands together anxiously*

    Ooooooooo... lets gooooooo!

    I’m well past HL, but I don’t care. Still gonna hold myself accountable. I’ll be heavily hovering in this thread, and a bit on the Hip, Tailbone, and Beyond.

    I’m dumping every last tip, trick, technique, etc. I’m also going to continue to keep going with the flow. Don’t care if I’m co-washing consistently for a week, and then Next week stretching washes. Whatever my hair wants.

    I’m doing the one product line only for 2019, so fiddling around with product choices won’t be a problem.

    There’s two things I’ve been doing that I need to whip into shape:
    1. Going to bed without my bonnet. I sleep on a satin pillowcase, but I need my hair contained.
    2. Stop forcing braids (smaller ones like box braids). Too much manipulation. Doesn’t matter how much I like them, my hair doesn’t. Two big braids or one large braid are my best options. Single twists are okay, but not frequently.

    Let’s do dis!!!!

    Ok here is my starting pic from June, hopefully this posts from resizer. This was after my hair had been straight about 3 weeks so it was getting to the end with lots of puffiness at the roots. HL_ChallengeStart1218.jpg HL_Start1218.jpg

    @Chicoro, I thought WHIP length was when you are between WL and HL? I thought you were closer to TL or beyond? I remember in the shea thread you had strands touching your thighs?

    The 2018 challenge was HL and beyond. Is this one just for HL? I'm past HL already but I need a place to hang out next year.

    I have strands touching my thighs when seated, not when standing!:giggle: I have no idea what these acronyms mean, obviously. Yes, you are right, I am on my way to tailbone length!

    OP if you make this a HL and beyond challenge you can pull more ladies.
    But that is just the opinion of this little ol SL girl over here.

    I'm here... I'm good to go for this challenge except for the trim part. I usually trim 4 times per year. After 3 months I notice increased breakage. How about I commit to 2 trims and not tell you about the other two? :look:

    Lol Ok! I'll add you :flahssssss:. The challenge wouldn't be the same without you. Two trims it is!:drunk:

    Hey question: I'm curious, what causes the breakage if you PS your ends. I'm assuming that you PS most of the time.

I don't want to impose, but since your have earned your cheerleadership and all, would you also be the thread' s picture enforcer? :lachen:"rent's due!!:bat:"
