    I'm claiming APL even if its barely. I'm happy with my progress from a year ago. I recovered from a badly damaged nape and had to constantly trim to keep my hair even while my nape grew out. I think I had at least 2 inches trimmed in 2012 and in 2013 I'll be doing maintenance dusting only.

    This is my comparison length check a year ago on 12/29/2011:

    @pelohello - I am transitioning to natural. This is my 3rd attempt - I haven't been able to make it past 8 mos. post and I'm trying to transition w/o the BC. Hopefully, I can do it this time.

    I braided my hair in jumbo box braids, so hopefully I can use it as a PS to help keep me from relapsing on the creamy crack! :lol:

    The challenge is over; we have already done it.

    Just bump up your own thread so people see it. You will turn people off if you keep spamming threads.

    btw- your siggy is pretty!

    girl now you know i told ya'll i feel like Blind Willie's Bald Headed Cat! but thank you! i know i should have made my year goal. all of that trimming and setbacks just messed me up. i'm going to do better though. i know what not to mess with this time around. i was trying so many things the beginning of this challenge and that setback taught me to take a few pegs down and really get to know what my hair was lacking.

    My sister lives in another state so I don't see her that much but when I see her, I always get her to roller set my hair. She hasn't done it since July and she said your hair is longer now! :). You know a comparison pic is coming once I take these rollers out. Have a great weekend ladies!

    I have my end of the year picture. I think I touch apl again. I just relaxed my hair and blow dried. I am doomed to a v shape. :ohwell:

    I'm not sure whether to join BSL or APL 13. What do you ladies think?

    Shortdub you are grazing BSL
