Default Re: 2 INCHES IN 4 MONTHS (end of the year) CHALLENGE

I've been ignoring this challenge since I first saw it a few days ago! Then today, I decided, 'You know what, maybe I should join this challenge. The worst that could happen is that I won't make the full two inches, but what do I have to loose by trying?'

That being said, I'm in! Honestly, I'm not sure I can make the two full inches, but it's worth giving it a shot!

Here's my starting pics!


It's MEEEEEE!! Freshly co-washed hair, no product added. Approx 60% shrinkage.






My nape can just barely stretch to my collarbone.



My regimen/products:
I purchased a bottle of Mega-Tek, and will DC with this every other week. The other weeks I will use Aphogee two minute reconstructor. Each time I use these high protein conditioners, I will follow them up with a moisturizing condish. I have not selected a particular brand.

I will stay away from heat styling and will try to keep manipulation to a minimum. Also, I will try to remember to take my vitamins... no promises though. I'm not good with eating pills.

Since I'm also not good about keeping my hair in braids or twists, and since my hair is long enough now, (just barely) I will start keeping my hair in buns and various updo type styles, like so...






It's hard to see what I've done here, but basically I just pulled the hair back and tucked it in, as if I were going to do a French roll. Then I just put the clip on to hold it in place. Plain and simple yes, but it keeps my ends safely tucked away.

PS. Sorry for adding so many pics! Just wanted to share!

I was thinking the same thing and said why not. I thought I would make the 2" but since I will probably need to trim in September and December I wouldn't see it. But let's give it a shot.

I haven't done a hair challenge in years LOL this is exciting!

I wasn't sure how to stretch my hair and take a photo with my big ole camera so I just have a fro shot. I dyed my hair jet black about a month ago and the color has done something funky to my hair, you can see it a bit in the photo. I think that is the last time I will use dye in my hair

What's your regimen?
shampoo and deep treatment every 1-2 weeks,
protective style (buns maybe some braids)
moisturize every day
Daily vitamin regimen: Prenatal, MSM, pantothenic acid, biotin, etc.
Exercise 3 times per week
Healthy whole foods: Injesting 16 oz of aloe vera juice per day and plenty of healthy protein and veggies.

What Products are you using?
Shampoo : Suave moisturizing shampoo or any other moisturizing shampoo
Deep treatment : Cathy Howse or any other good conditioner
Moisturizer : S-Curl texturizer spray

What will you especially do for achieving this goal?
Have fun and enjoy taking loving care of my hair

Thanks @mEmYSELFaNDj! Your hair is FABULOUS BTW!!

I got the clip from ebay. It clips onto your hair kinda like a duckbill clip I only paid $2.50 for it!! And, considering how inexpensive it was, the clip seems surprisingly sturdy! Not at all like it'll fall apart trying hold onto my thick hair.
When I first got it I wasn't sure how I'd use it, or even if I had enough hair to use it, but, I managed to figured it out.

http://stores.ebay.com/Grace-collect...=p4634.c0.m322


I have this one too! There's a few different colors to choose from.

HTH!

Default Re: 2 INCHES IN 4 MONTHS (end of the year) CHALLENGE

I want in too....i'm 3'' away from APL plus my hair grows in layers. sighs, but i'm in. I know i can get those extra inches i need with 100% protective styling since i never ever wear my hair out.

Starting pics are posted below first is my bang, second, nape, third side right above my ears. I'm no good at taking pics but i'm hoping to improve on it.

My Regimen: I'll be wearing a wig until my hair tells me to get a weave. Washing 2X per week in cornrows that i will not undo in singles every 21/2 wks..if they hold up; while applying MTek 3-4X per week

Products for Challenge: VO5 conditioners, Baking Soda for clarifying, Mtek(is a a must), homemade moisturizer, rarely used, EVOO & castor oil for edges and DHerbs hair oil to seal

What will i do for achieving this goal:Maybe i'll wear my hair out for the first time. Keep using the regimen & products that helped to achieve the goal

Supplements: MSM, Biotin, when i remember, VitC with Iron...maybe i'll start taking Chlorella again

Red face Re: 2 INCHES IN 4 MONTHS (end of the year) CHALLENGE

Sorry I would like to join but I don't have a starting pic! My hair is in twists right now and they aren't coming out for the next month. I will do this on my own I guess. Good luck to everyone! I'm on a 100% PS challenge until at least April 2012, using braids and twists with extensions, cornrows beneath wigs. I do this every year and it is amazing, plus saves me time from daily styling!

ETA: Abt the starting pic, the last pic of my length (stretched) I have uploaded was in like April. I was BSL then. May or June I was a bit past BSL. IDK where I am now but I should be coming up on MBL in Oct or Dec. at the latest. If I take the twists out sooner than late Sept, I will post a starting photo!

3. DC once a week
4. Daily/nightly moisturizing and sealing ends

Moisturizer: Hawaiian Silky 14-in-1
Seal: Grapeseed oil, JBCO

Default Re: 2 INCHES IN 4 MONTHS (end of the year) CHALLENGE

I'm in! (Wee, I finally subscribed :P)
I will post a starting picture September 1st!


1. Regimen (well as it will be starting September 1st):

Co-wash once a week
Shampoo once a month
Deep treatment once every 2 weeks
Hot oil treatment/massage twice weekly

2. Products
Conditioner/Co-wash: Yes to Cucumbers
Shampoo: Shikakai & amla shampoo bar
Oil and moisturizer: Homemade blends
Butters (unrefined): Avocado, maybe coffee bean or vanilla too

^^May tweak this a bit before September and if so I'll update!


3. What will you especially do for achieving this goal?
I may actually take my multi-vitamin daily rather than just "when I feel like it." Hmm, I will also continue with what I've been doing since going natural: minimal styling, no heat, gentle care and enthuse myself with a chant: patience, patience, patience! I'll also drink even more water than I already do!

Side note: I've cut down majorly on my PJism :P mainly bcause I realized that I could get the look I wanted with just water and oil/water and butters lol. But the temptress in me may come out and create full-blown PJism again. We'll see!


Wooohooo, let's get growing! Wish you all successes!

I'm IN! LOL. My twists are super...SUPER OLD! xD I've been pulling them into a bun, I'm not crazy enough to go out like this. LOL. Here's a shot I just took:
What's your regimen? Twist, wash twice a week, rinse with water when needed, retwist, deep condition once a week. Still trying to figure out what products to twist with.

What Products are you using?
Not product specific but I have fallen for deva curl no poo conditioner and I love the super deep conditioner. My hair liked "Kimmaytube's conditioner"

WILL TRY TO TAKE BIOTIN ON A REGULAR BASIS AND UP MY WATER INTAKE!

What will you especially do for achieving this goal? Not wearing my hair out of twists too often. Essentially leaving it alone!!

UPDATED regimen - 10-2-2011.


What's your regimen? cleanse with bentonite clay once every 1.5 to 2 weeks. condition with aubrey organics conditioners (honeysuckle rose & white camellia). dc twice a week, rinse & condition once a week. oils galore (mostly castor, apricot, avocado, oyin burnt sugar...im also trying [not sure i'll rebuy] rice bran and sunflower oils) . wearing twists or braids for 2 to 4 weeks at at time. finger detangling on twist/braid takedown day in the shower. no combs/brushes.
What Products are you using? see above
What will you especially do for achieving this goal? nothing special. keeping ends moist and protected.

i'll try to take some photos maybe later tonight or tomorrow afternoon (after work) depending on when my hair dries...i'm currently dc'ing my hair and will rinse soonish. i'll release a few twists in different areas on my hair and do a pull down.
