    What’s up my Gorgeous ladies!!!!

    I apologize for just ghosting y’all for some months. I made it through another semester! Had to put my haircare on cruise control, and just keep the basics (shampoo and conditioner. Literally just that.) I was super busy with life and whatnot, but we made it sis!!

    December is coming to an end, and I’m legit excited to be hosting the 2020 Shea Growth Thread!

    I’m super thankful for @Chicoro, for giving me an opportunity to, and I’m excited to be doing this again with All of You lovely ladies!!

    Since I have ample amounts of free time for the rest of this year, I’ll be all up and through here as per usual. You ladies are amazing as always, and I hope I can be of any and all assistance to you guys, and continue in all the Shea Unicorn Glory

    Awesome sauceeeeee!! And greatttt cause I just trimmed my hair from BCL to Hip Length and I don't think I'll be getting much far past HL without queen Shea! And congrats on making it through the semester! That was me during my pregnancy, hair care was on cruise control lol. Co-Wash, SCURL and Doogro Oil, Poo & Con once a month. Strictly basic. Not even SB butter touched my head in a whole YEAR.

    I’m glad you know the struggle sis! I kept telling myself that Queen Shea wasn’t gonna be mad at me for not putting her on my being in some way for the last 3 months or so haha!

    Going to experiment with melted shea squeezed into my hair. I used to do that when I had locs. Lately I prefer doing my twists while still in the shower so solid shea wouldn't really be ideal after.

    Happy Holidays to all! I hope everyone is well. I've been lurking here and there, but not very active. I'm looking forward to the 2020 challenge. While I did hit a milestone with Queen Shea earlier this year, my length has been stagnant. It seems I've been in the thickening stage for 6 months. I'm not complaining though, just taking stock that I haven't been consistent with my health and my Shea usage.

    @Chicoro Thank you for your knowledge, humor, insight, and encouragement in this thread. Many blessings upon you sis!

    @PlanetCybertron Thank you for taking the helm. I can't wait to see what's in store for all of us!

    Sending positive vibes and love to all! See you in 2020!

I promised myself I’d do a year-end trim, but I don’t have much damage. Been doing a search and destroy method. I’m conflicted. I have until the 31st to decide for myself.

    I’ve been in here since around September and have posted a few pics and have seen some growth- I thiiiiiiink I made my goal of armpit length but I’m going to need a cut (not a trim) next year. Getting my crazy split ends under control has been a bigger challenge, honestly. This week, I washed & twisted my hair up with Shea... and ordered two more jars from SheaTerra in the middle of the night because I like the scent :look: They came so quickly that I had to double check when I ordered!!

    I don’t know when I’ll be taking progress pictures (or when I’ll even wash my hair again, let’s be honest) as I’m due to deliver this baby in early January. So even if I’m quiet in the thread, please count me in for 2020!!

    @Chicoro thank you for sharing your wisdom with us, continuing to do so, and cheerfully leading the thread for so long!
    @PlanetCybertron thank you for hosting the 2020 thread & I'm excited to see what progress all of us will make in another year with Shea!

    A three year comparison. I hope in the coming year that I will make better progress. I might have to rethink how I wear my hair. Maybe something a little looser; instead of keeping it in a bun, maybe wear a tucked style. I’m trying to keep the use of bobby-pins and clips to a minimum. So far I’ve only used a satin scrunchy to make my bun. I think I’ll also avoid braiding the base to ease tension. Oh, I did put henna in my hair to see how it would color my gray hair. I kind of like it. Didn’t do the indigo yet. Considering. Then I’ll probably grow it out to measure my progress.

    This is my last year participating in this challenge so I want to say farewell and all the best to everyone moving on with it in 2020.

    My membership on the board expires in February and it is not likely that I will be renewing it this time around. I had an awesome time here and I have made many wonderful friends, so much so that you all feel like family to me. I love you all - MUAH :love3:

    My focus moving forward will be on the Lord God Almighty and cleaning up my spiritual house. I hope the best for all of you and pray that since this is a Christian based forum, all here would seek Him diligently and intimately while He may be found.

    I will be around until my membership expires in February though.

    Love always:iloveyou:,
    Aggie
