Alright, so I have been officially on a healthy hair care jouney for about 6 months now and I have joined the apl in 2010 challenge as my hair is currently at shoulder length. My final goal is waist lengh and I know that itis not realistic for me to say that I will make it in 2010 or 2011 but 2012. I would like to know how many of you all would like to join me on this challenge to make it official.

I want to join! Although I'll be waistlength this year, I want to be FULLY NATURAL and WL by December 2012! So count me in!


Well-Known Member
Hey, what the heck? I'll join. I am working on BSL now. Midback length in 2011. Let's see if I can shoot for the incredible...WL in 2012. Count me in :)


My 13yr old Men
Please count me in! This is my official final destination, lol. I am due to come back to the States June 2012 and I would love to get off the plane like POW BAM!

Meanwhile I am doing some kind of PS until I get there, braids, weaves, stretching, etc. I WILL GET THERE!


Well-Known Member
Wow...lol, I thought I read the year wrong. Even though I hope to be WL in 2011, I'll join! I'm currently APL, aiming for BSL by the end of 2010.


I'm hoping to make NL by the end of the year. How about a WL 2013? LOL
How long does it take to get from NL to WL anyway? I'm assuming three years.


Active Member
Im a really slow grower so I'm in. I think with hard work i can make it 2011 but by 2012 i'll definately get there.


New Member
Count me in! Just got my hair cut to APL in April, and hopefully when I graduate college in May of 2012, I will be full, natural WL.


New Member
Add me too. I'm near BSL but my hair grows terribly slow--2 in. a year. WL in 2012 is a realistic goal.
