Challenges are starting FAST around these parts so I decided to start one for the ladies aiming for MBL! :yay: The Challenge officially runs from September 15, 2010- December 31, 2011


MBL was my length ultimate goal and I would be in hair heaven even if it didn't grow any longer. :love3:


There aren't any official rules. Just do what YOU need to do to increase the health and length of YOUR hair. Also, come into the thread often to post an :update: or two to let us know what's going on with ya!

I want to join. I am in the WL 2012 challenge. So this challenge should keep me on track.
Current length BSL (really full APL just touching BSL)
Regimen: Cowash daily (or every other day) . DC weekly. Shampoo as needed. PS just about every day.

Crazy question but what length should you be now to achieve mbl in 2011?

it depends on one's rate of hair growth. however, i think if you're apl you should def be able to make it by next summer. if you SL I think it's quite possible if you dust (as opposed to trim) for the next year and a half.

I would like to join. I am in the Wsl2012 challenge. Hoping to make APL by the end of this year. So hopefully I can be MBL by end of next year. If so I would be happy. I chose WSL since that seems to be "the ultimate goal".
I will post regimen and starting pic this weekend.

When is the official start date?

PISH TOSH!:lachen:


What NikkiQ not in a challenge? I need to mark this on my calendar.

Alright everyone. So here is my starting pic. Please bare with me and the size. This is my first picture upload. I am quite excited to see my length. My hair grew, LOL. (Don't know why I thought it wouldn't.) I began my journey at neck length in November of last year.

Gosh look at my back.


Today.

My Regimine from now to December 2010. WIGS! WIGS! WIGS! I will wear my handy dandy Extension Plus wig (been going strong for a year) until Christmas. DC cornrows twice a week with mane and tail, silicon mix, bed head dumb blonde or ion protein conditioner. Remove cornrows every 4-6 weeks deep condition with aohr and wash with hair one. For Christmas press hair and do a length check. After Christmas not sure yet....... thinking about EP sew in.

Regimen:
It changes based on products or whatever style I might be wearing, but my basic reggie is washing and DC'ing on Sundays and co-washing on Wednesdays. Sometimes I DC on Wednesdays too, if I am feeling particularly steamer-hungry. I moisturize as needed - don't usually seal since I've found that it hasn't really helped me and I hate leaving oil stains on my linens. I clarify when necessary. I do amla treatments when I want stronger and more moisturized hair.
Goal Month:
August - I don't really have a choice but to make it by August since I am doing the BC at the end of August... lol. Then I'm aiming for MBL again by Dec 2012. :)
