    I posted this over at BHM because I just don't post over there as much as here but, might as well share over here too. Here's my story in pics.

    Njoy!

    First month: Newbie just learning about hair care. I started with a freshly layered cut. Obvious newbie trying to figure out how to take pics. Dates are 1/2, 2/2, 3/2 & 3/19.

    Main protective style

    Still not great with taking pics but, ah well...
    [​IMG]

    Thru mid June
    [​IMG]

    End of June (learned to stop using the darn flash)
    [​IMG]

    I think this may have been the first set of pics posted on bhm. Tried to give input and caught grief. mmhmm.
    [​IMG]

    I think I'm showing 3 months of ng here. I did a thread with a ton of these ng pics. I'm 4b/a
    [​IMG]

    Claimed MBL

    Mid Nov Sneak Peek
    [​IMG]

    Year End 2010 Progress (Yeah, my fingers in the middle pic look retarded but, that's me trying to grab a section but the camera snapped. And the last pic, I fanned my hair so that the layers are visible)
    [​IMG]


    Onward to 2011 goal of HL. Hoping to reach this by June but, I'm also looking to trim away some layers so, we'll see.

    Here I am in my winter PS
    Another ps. Motown Tress LG-61, 2-in1 1/2 wig/ponytail
    [​IMG]

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

    My reggie is in my blog here. At present, I'm 23 wks post and back in my ps'g. I may or may not texlax next week at 6 months post. Still trying to decide.

    Thanks for all the compliments and kind words. Y'all know me. And you know I don't mind sharing any info that I may have. We're all in this together. Wishing us all a bountiful 2011!

    Njoy

    thanks, Ladies. You have all been amazing with your support. I love you all like fam! :yep:

    My goal length is HL. And I'm not really sure if it needs to be full hl either. Maybe top of my hipbone is enough and then maintain. :yep:

    I'm putting more focus on fitness in 2011. Those pics are humbling. VERY humbling. :look:

    Yes. Or, as in my pic, I have a scarf wrapped around the baggied bun. I wore it both ways while keeping my ends protected.

    Ah, it's nothing now. Basically, I was a lurker over there and wearing a "newbie" badge. There was a thread about growth aides that I naively thought I could share my opinions on sulfur working for me. TRYING to be helpful. :rolleyes: But there was already a few discrediting growth aides and one stepped up to tell me that my growth rate was the normal 1/2" per month and said it was the same as hers. I posted pics (oh, cuz ya know I was taking pics like crazy early in my hhj) to show my actual comparisons. And truly, she's entitled to her opinions the same way that I am. But she rose up with this "I'm 3rd tier here and I'll say what I want". Huh?! :nono:

    I backed down because I didn't want to start anything ugly as a newbie. And over what? I just said I'd be back later in the year and we'll see how we compare. I've been back since and it's all good.

    In any case, I know that she's here too so, I'm really enjoying answering your question. All in good fun tho. She's actually a sweetie. She spanked a newbie. But, she who spanks last, spanks best. She should'a axed sumbody *snaps* :lachen:
