    Can I join again LOL.

    I have SL but its thin n scraggly because of thin spots.

    I want to focus on thickening my hair and regular trims so I can have a thicker:pray: SL, even bob by the end of the year.

    I don't think going for APL rat tails looking hair is a good idea:lol:

    I need oil help. I have been using the same oils for a year and it seems to not be working as well. Like maybe my hair is immune to it now idk. The recipe hasn't changed I know that.

    Welcome Sumra. Looks like you missed the first question about your staring length. Looks like you are close to SL.

    Have you ladies used flexi rods on dry hair? I'm considering doing that overnight tonight so I can have heatless curls for tomorrow.

    Natural
    What's your plan to reach SL?

    I will be washing 2xs a month
    I will keep my hair up in stretched styles
    Tension blow dry each wash
    Flat iron every 6weeks or so
    Inversion 1st week of every month. 5 min sessions

    What's your regimen?

    hot head or steam with every wash. Shampoo with every wash.
    Mositurize nightly. Leave it the hell alone.

    Anything else you want to share?
    I am trying to get alll the way back on this hair ship. I did my 3rd big chop for my 30th birthday in October. The longest my hair was as a natural was BSL. I need that length back in my life. lol

    I'm swell! I'm happy with my hair, didn't need to use anything but my fingers. I'm heading to my aunt's house, I hope it's much less eventful then Thanksgiving.

    I am ready to relax my hair. I've tried to go as long as I could without but my hair won't lay down. It gets aggravating.
