Default Now Forming an Army of FUTURE SUPER-LONG HAIR 4B (or mostly 4b) NATURALS! Come on in!

So, I've been on the forum for just about 6 months, and I joined because when I BC'd, I set a goal for SUPER LONG NATURAL 4B hair- WL to be exact

I've "met" and researched the fabulous long-haired 4b naturals on the forum (shout out to @Sera, @***Victory is Mine, @mwedzi, and the others), but what I haven't seen is a thread dedicated specifically to those whose goal it is to grow SUPER-LONG 4B NATURAL HAIR (BSL or longer).

I'd like this thread to be an inspiration to 4b/mostly 4b natural newbies that there are other 4bs out there who share their same super-long hair goals, are activitely growing their hair super-long, or have already acheived their super-long hair goal. It should be a place where we share tips, advice, encouragement, pics, inspiration, setbacks- the whole gamut.

So, come on in ladies!! I promise- this isn't another challenge , there are no hardfast rules, just a support community we can use to reach our super-long hair goals and show the world that "our" hair CAN & WILL grow as super-long as we want!

Please post your current reggie, your ultimate super-long hair goal, and starting and current pics, if you have them. Feel free to share your "relaxed to natural" story too....those are always fun to read

Default Re: Now Forming an Army of SUPER-LONG HAIR 4B (or mostly 4b) NATURALS!! Come on in!

So, I'll go first....

As a kid, I constantly heard how thick, "unruly" and "nappy" my hair was. Ironically, one of the few people in my life who I didn't hear this from was my mother, but she never really did my hair- she kept my sis and I in extension braids until I was around 12.

By age 12, I wanted more of a say in my hair, so she stopped having my hair braided and left me to do it on my own. To say the least, the volume and density of my hair overwhelmed me, so behind my mother's back, I asked my aunt to relax it. This single event started a near 20 year cycle of hair abuse. I don't have a memory of my hair ever being longer than NL, & I never had any images of woman around me with healthy, long 4b hair

I BC'd on May 31, 2010 because I wanted to set an example for my 3 daughters that "our" hair is gorgeous, manageable, sought-after even, and that it can grow as long as we want it to, despite the messages that the outside world may give them.

So far, so good! I BC'd at around 2.5" in May, & my hair is currently 6-6.5" long (I'm SL now, *I think* lol). My ultimate goal is WL, which on my body is at 20", & I'm pushing for a Dec 2012 goal date. My current reggie's pretty simple- I CW 1-2x week, PS with conrows under wigs using LadyP's DMM, M & S daily, & DC once/week. I also do a PT every 4 weeks when I take down my braids, & I'm looking into adding Henna monthly as well.

My starting (May 31) & current (Nov 6) pics are attached. I plan to straighten my whole head for the 1st time next month...this was just an anxious sneak preview

@Successfulmiss - your hair is so full and beautiful! My favorite pic is the 2nd one with the twists...I can't wait until I hit your length!

How long are you now? What's your reggie?

Default Re: Now Forming an Army of SUPER-LONG HAIR 4B (or mostly 4b) NATURALS!! Come on in!

I know I'm gonna love this thread. Subbing! I can't share properly now cause I'm at work, so consider this a placeholder.

ETA: Okay, this is gonna be a mix of previous posts incorporated into something that makes sense hopefully.

I've been natural all my life (4b with what I believe are fine/medium strands) but started abusing heat getting my hair blowdried and pressed every 2 weeks at a salon during my late teens. They burned my hair often until I had a whole head of heat damage, but I loved the swangin results and being able to show off my almost APL hair, so I kept on going back, until my scalp was sensitive and my hair had thinned out beyond recognition. I eventually stopped going to the salon as much and reduced my heat styling to blowouts every few weeks.

I noticed between 2005 and 2006 that my hair seemed to be getting shorter and shorter, until my plaits were hanging like mid-neck (it'd never been that short before). I found hair forums and never looked back.

-----------------------------

CURRENT REGIMEN:

Wash Day:
I shampoo roughly once a week (Giovanni TTT/Smooth as Silk or AO HSR), follow up with a DC with one or a mixture of AO HSR, GBP, WC conditioners. I blot my hair and put it in two strand twists and then bantu knot the twists to dry and stretch my hair overnight.

Main Styling:
A few days later after stretching with large plaits overnight I get my protective style of choice done whether it be plaits, twists, canerows (no hair added), and wear those for 3-5 weeks depending on the size. I wash and cowash as needed while in PS. I detangle on dry hair using QB CTDG when I take down my PS. Full details here: http://public.fotki.com/UKDCqueen/ye...0/slide20.html

Maintenance:
I oil my scalp when I feel like it, and spritz my hair and seal my ends daily.

Vits:
Chlorella, MSM and Biotin

------------------------------

I love natural products for my hair; Qhemet Biologics, Aubrey Organics, black castor oil, essential oils for scalp massage are some of my faves. I've discovered that my hair does not like heat, I've had some great retention since cutting it out totally apart from using a heat cap for DCing. I don't know if/when I will incorporate it back into my regimen, right now I really don't want to. Different strokes... My favourite PS is small twists or plaits.

I can't post pics from the computer I'm using right now but there are plenty in my fotki. I recently posted about how well my hair is doing now in this post: http://www.longhaircareforum.com/hai...l#post12201339

Right I've blabbed on enough. We can do it girls!

Default Re: Now Forming an Army of SUPER-LONG HAIR 4B (or mostly 4b) NATURALS!! Come on in!

I'm so HUMBLED!!!!! I am technically SL but I'm hitting collarbone at the moment. I remember how so many people would say my hair was so "nappy" but it was just that it was SO THICK...no one knew how to tame it but with a relaxer. No More!!!!! LOL. I'm very basic with my reggie hun

-Moisture, Moisture, Moisture.
-Wrap my hair in satin and sleep on satin
- Baggying at least 1x-2x weekly
-Only finger combing unless in shower
-I do what I feels my hair "needs"

Products: ~most present to date, but I plan to go more 100% organic very soon I just transitioned over a ten month period and cut ALL of the relaxed ends off, sacrificing the "length"~
-Nunaat hair mask treatment(may be changing because I dont get enough product for the cost and I can use 1 jar in a week lol but its mainly brazilian keratin nut)
-Natural yellow shea butter
-EVOO
-EVCO
-Alma oil
-Elasta QP mango butter and olive oil
-Creme of Nature ultra moisturizing shampoo

I think this is a FANTASTIC thread. I'm not a big "challenge" type of lady. I think you should be disciplined enough to do it one your own consistently. JMHO

I swear you guys have some gorgeous hair. My 10 year old was being nosy a few minutes ago and saw @Foxglove's gorgeous siggy puff and said "OMG..I'm dead" and proceeds to collapse to the floor (she's a bit of a drama queen, in case you can't tell lol).

@Successfulmiss - I know what you mean about moisturizing....I think it's the name of the game for alot of us 4Bs. How are you liking the Elasta QP mango butter and olive oil? I'm on the hunt for a heavy, creamy moisturizer and my hair has just been laughing at everything I've tried so far lol.

Hi @janet! I never thought I was a hair-color person (only had it done once in my life and my relaxed hair fell out at my crown 2 weeks later LMAO), but everytime I see your siggy pic that horrible memory fades a little bit more lol. Simply gorgeous :-)

I am enjoying the Elasta qp BUT I prefer mango butter and shea butter mixed with oils(whatever you prefer) Also that formula has parabens, which Im not too pleased with.

Default Re: Now Forming an Army of SUPER-LONG HAIR 4B (or mostly 4b) NATURALS!! Come on in!

@SimJam - welcome! You've made ALOT of progress in the last year...congrats on your upcoming nappiversary!

I forgot to mention that I'm also very much into ceramides now- they've been great for my retention. I use WGO in my CW and DCs, and I try to use products with ceramides high on the ingredients list. How long have you used them?

Tnx @bride91501

@ the bolded Scurl and ceramides have made dryness a thing of the past for me. and I also add it to all my DCs.

Ive been using WGO on and off since I was relaxed for mixing with DCs but since I found out abt ceramides Ive made sure to always use it.

hempseed oil is just awesome for me its my staple sealer/ I alternate with jojoba oil

sunflower oil I use to finger detangle and for oil rinses

Think I started using them consistently in abt august of this year

I want to join!! I'm 4b. My strands are fine and my hair is very soft. Right now I go to the salon every two weeks. I tried for well over a year to find my own natural way. It just didn't work for me. I don't have 'the gift' and didn't really know what to do for my hair.

Now i know that my strands need protein on a regular basis. I LOVE Sebastian 2+1 for my hair. Works great, but Sebastian stopped making it. Sheesh! Joico KPak is a close second.

I'm using MN on my scalp a couple of times a week. I also mixed a vial of ceramides into my Chi Silk Infusion. I try to use this at least twice a week. I love hempseed oil, but I only use it right before wash day because it weighs my hair down. I'm also taking a multi and a hair vitamin.
