I'm curious on what are the styling options you guys have for short hair. I'm seriously stuck with 2-3 styles that I can rely on (for when my hair is in its natural state).
 
I plan on taking vitamins and exercising. I hope to be SL by 6/10/11. 1 year and 10 days after big chop ( bday )

I was in the same boat so I decided to do protective styles until I'm at a more comfortable length. I'm in kinky twists now.

I have done down black tea rinse, it did stop shedding and actually increased my growth but for some reason my hair actually turned a brownish color...in theory it is suppose to just darken your hair color. I think I'm the only case I heard this happen to.

What is your current length?
Super short; I just cut some layers out. My sides may be like inch long so they're above my ear and the crown/bangs like maybe 4-5 inches.

What is your goal date to make Shoulder length?
I probably won't make SL until after this challenge. My real goal is to have full SL, so I plan to cut the back to keep it stacked and have a blunt cut. So I'll say Dec '12+

Are you relaxed, natural, texlaxed,transitioning (state the date you plan to BC), other?
Relaxed and I need to keep up w/ my touch-ups. Think I'm over my 'going-back-to-natural" thoughts

What is your plans on obtaining shoulder length?
Keep up w/ my routines. Frequent washing (~4x/wk) and using my staple products: Suave humectant poo and con, NTM for rollersets, my SoftTouch grease after rollersets, weekly deep condition w/ Queen Helene Cholesterol.

What is your ultimate goal length?
MBL :)

subscribing and joining :yep:

I'm relaxed, NL and hope to reach full SL by July 2012. Right now I'm PS'ing by wearing a fake bun with my hair in a baggy underneath the bun. I've only been doing this for a couple of months and I can already see a difference. My retention has increased......

I usually make a small/medium size pot of water and use about 3 tea bags. At some point I was using a spirtz water bottle to apply it to the hair but mostly scalp. Pouring it over my head over a sink worked fine too.. but I found that if the concentration was too strong like maybe 5+ bags I got a head ache. I remember it being a bit relaxing I guess because it would help blood flow to the scalp and as other have claimed.
