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

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.

Default Re: Shoulder Length 2012 Challenge

Count me in...

What is your current length? Ear length sides, tapered in the back, shorter

What is your goal date to make Shoulder length? 07/31/12

Are you relaxed, natural, texlaxed,transitioning (state the date you plan to BC), other? Relaxed

What is your plans on obtaining shoulder length? Healthy hair care...DC, moisturizing 2x daily, sealing 2x daily, reduce heat usage as hair grows, increase p/s as hair grows,

What is your ultimate goal length? right about shoulder length, on the sides, and inverted in back at neck length. A edgy bob...

I'll update the photos as soon as my phone lets me??? And I'll update my progress weekly.

I'm up for a relaxer touch up and trim on 12.03. I'm hoping for some add'l growth by then, I haven't had a relaxer or trim since 09.23. I may not get the taper from the salon when I go and let my kid's barber do it for less money! My hair is growing out nicely and very thick and healthy. I'll be glad when it is longer so I can get back to setting it. I plan to invest in some perm rods in the coming weeks and setting it weekly or every other week to keep the heat off. ONce I grow the top down, over the tapered portion then I can start to wear my phony ponys and phony buns. I had great success with those when I was growing my hair out for my wedding a few years back. Rollersets, low direct heat, cowashes in the warmer months, and phony ponies/buns, were a godsend for me. All those things, plus moisturizing and sealing assisted me in rarely having to get trims, which meant major retention.

I have gotten fairly lazy with the moisturizing b/c I've had a short cut for 1.5 years. Now that I'm back to growing it out, I have to work on remembering to moisturize and seal morning and night. I may also have enough hair to try and wrap it at night to retain some curl, and I also may be able to use my Caruso's again. I'll definitely be using this group to assist me in this process! I'm not looking for long hair, just longer hair!

What is your current length?
I really don't know.My natural hair looks ear length or something but then when I stretch it I still don't know if its considered SL or CBL..

What is your goal date to make Shoulder length?
Dec 12 if not sooner.

Are you relaxed, natural, texlaxed,transitioning (state the date you plan to BC), other?
Natural currently but will be transitioning to relaxed by Summer 2012

What is your plans on obtaining shoulder length?
Finding someone to do sew ins for.I would keep them in for at least 3 months each with one month off.I would make sure to wash every 2 weeks and moisturize as much as I can through the hair.If I'm not able to get a sew in then I would be doing wigs and then of course keeping my hair cornrowed small and keep my hair moist.I will also try and order some mtg and sulfur.

What is your ultimate goal length?
MBL

Default Re: Shoulder Length 2012 Challenge

Ok, I just started a portion of my new SL reggie tonight. I stated that moisturizing/sealing was a huge part of how I will make it to my goal by July 2012. Like I said I've been slacking by not doing this daily and extensively because I was getting a hair cut every 6 weeks, so it didn't matter. Well now it does.

I'm trying some products that i've purchased for my kid(he is growing out his hair). So tonite I used Elasta QP Mango Butter(mine) on my edges, then I parted my hair and put some Hawaiian Silky 14 n 1 on each section at the roots(my hair is full of NG), and then I went back over each secton and sealed with castor oil. I also put some Mango Butter, HS, and Castor Oil on my ends sealed my edges as well. We'll see what this does in the morning!
