    What was your starting length for growing your hair? barely touching shoulder length

    How long did it take you to achieve waist length hair from that starting point?
    counting 1 major set-back, 3-4 years

    Are you relaxed, texturized, or natural? Natural

    What was you regime as you grew your hair out?
    dusting trimms I did myself, every 3-4 months, baggying nightly at one point, regime link in siggy

    What products did you use? suave coconut conditioner, S-curl no drip activator, monoi, avocado, coconut, masqueti oils-diff times, silicon mix, aphogee for a time( I don't use it now) my updated regime link is in my siggy, products in my fotki.

    What styles did you wear? braided weaves, phonytail baggie, baggying nightly at one point ( I had some dryness issues)


    Any other hair growing tips??? I would say if your braiding or braid/weave, you have to moisturize daily most times moisturize extra, that's why I baggied so much at one point. Also I think I should have given up the braided weave when i was mid-back approaching WSL cause the weight of the weave I had to wear to cover my real hair was getting too heavy, and it was too hard to get inbetween to moisturize and oil like I used to. Also, keep your products to a minimum, simplify your routine as much as you can, and give up heat when trying to reach a goal, then you can find a healthy balance with heat usage. hth

    What was your starting length for growing your hair?It was always long MBL-WSL but i had to cut it Above ear (Boot camp Haircut)

    How long did it take you to achieve waist length hair from that starting point?
    2 1/2 -3 years

    Are you relaxed, texturized, or natural? Natural

    What was you regime as you grew your hair out? Washing 2 times a week. Deep Co once a week. I flat ironed once a week and had my mom trim every 3-4 sometimes 5 months.


    What products did you use? I have branched out a bit but before i only used Frederic Fekkai Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo, Shea Butter Moisturizing Co , And the Shea Butter Hair Mask, Bedhead Ego Boost, Natural Coconut Oil, Burts Bee's Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo, EVOO.... there are so many others I can't begin to list I am a terrible product junkie :)

    What styles did you wear? During this time my navy donut bun, down on the weekends, ponytails, single braid, french twists


    Any other hair growing tips??? Try different things and see what works best for your hair and don't be afraid to spend a little on products. My experience was seeing what works for others doesn't always work for me (ie) trying lusters pink lotion for the first time and having HORRIBLE hair loss.

    Here's a more recent (super long) thread: WL Names & Regimens


    You all may want to post your WL regimens in there as well. And others may want to look.

    2-3 years for thickness

    Are you relaxed, texturized, or natural? Natural

    Protective styling, moisturize, low to no manipulation, deep conditioning weekly, rare heat (every 3 months)

    - I am on low manipulation, I only comb if when necessary or cannot finger comb. This is especially true if it is curly due to tangles that can form.
