    I'll join! Hip length was my ultimate goal, but now I'm thinking I may grow longer.

    Current Length: Waist length, layered
    Regimen: I wash my hair once a week, deep condition, twist my hair, and bun it. Once a month I do a cassia treatment.
    Plans: I don't really have hair plans anymore. I just do what I do and let it grow.
    Hip Length Date: I'm giving myself a year, so I'd say October 2012.

    I'm in! WHip/Hip are stops to my ultimate goal: tailbone. Currently in middle of a setback tho' so I need to get the massive shedding under control.

    Current Length: waistlength
    Regimen: co-wash weekly, dc weekly (combined protein/moisture), airdry and bun. M&S daily with avj/glycerin/water followed by sweet almond oil. Lots of vitamins and supplements
    Plans: Will do a length check late dec, then trim .5-1" and will continue to bun.
    Hip Length Date: Sep 2012

    JJamiah, you must be smokin' that good good stuff, tagging me. :nuts:

    I don't even know if I am at BSB or not. And then there's MBL and WL and HBL (or is that whatchall are calling HL?) before hips. So what in the name of all that is sane are you tagging me fo'? Why d'you hafta get me out of bed to attend a meeting where everyone speaks a foreign tongue? I thought we were friends? So cruel. :cry4:

    Oh and BTW, I don't do challenges, coz I ain't watching no pot. If I get there, I get there. If I don't, oh well. So I'ma just go right back and join that Geico dude under the rock where things make sense. :yep:

    Thanks JJamiah for tagging me! Janet', thanks for making this thread! I was thinking of making a Hip Length for 2012 at one point but forgot. Count me in! I'm confident I can do this.

    Current Length: In MBL/WL limbo... :look:
    Regimen: Wash, condition, air-dry/blow-dry. Yes, that's all I do. :lol:
    Plans: Start back on my vitamins, grow out my bangs, get my edges longer, and achieve thickness.
    Hip Length Date: December 31, 2012 at 11:59:59pm like JJamiah... lol. :look:
    Starting Picture: Click here for my most recent update.

    Yay!! Janet's running things? I'm in! I hope to be HL now or dang close. HL is my goal so, I'll be trimming and maintaining. I'm layered now with about 5 inches of bonelaxed ends and planning to grow most of it out so that my hemline will be nice and thick. I'll have a better idea at the end of the year but yeah, I'm in. :yep:

    I would like to join, please.

    Now, that I've figured out why my retention had stalled, and subsequently revamped my regimen, I should be able to reach W-HIP (I'm in that challenge, too :grin:) and HL in 2012. But I will be trimming back to W-HIP, because, like @JJamiah, W-HIP is as long as I want to go. Here are my "vitals:"

    Current Length: Full MBL

    Regimen: Wash weekly, monthly protein treatment and DC, trim every 3 months, hairstyles include rollersets and updos

    Plans: My final goal is W-HIP, so I plan to trim after reaching HL and maintain W-HIP.

    Hip Length Date: Christmas Day 2012
