Who's gonna start the 2012 waist length callenge ;-)

JeliahJeliah Posts: 248Registered Users
For the past 3 years I've had a lot of issues with breakage. I dyed the crap out of my hair and I left it very damaged. I still have maybe a half an inch of color on the ends of my hair and now that the color is gone my hair is MUCH healthier. I'm currently MBL streched. My goal is to reach WSL and I believe 2012 is the year. I guess it doesn't take much to start a challenge, just ask for pics and regimens. Just the thought of being in charge gives me anxiety lol

    Well it sounds like maybe we should just do a grow out challenge. Post a picture of of your starting length Dec. 31 and check in with progress every 3 months.

    Hi, :wave:
    I'm new here and would love to join in on this challenge... My hair used to be waist length when curly and nice healthy 3b curls, but from lack of patience, dyes, and bi-weekly straightenings (blow dryer/flat iron) its about a 2a/2b sometimes and MBL. I hate it and want to get my hair back. :( Is it too late to join? What do I do?

    It's not too late. So far it's not too much involved we will post starting length photos on Dec. 31/Jan. 1 and then update every four months ( or more if u like). You can also post your regimen if you like. And that's about it! Guess we'll be seeing everyone's beginning length pics soon. HAPPY GROWING!!!

    Not me!!! I did it last year and it annoyed the crap out of me when it got caught in my jeans :lol: I chopped it down to bsl a few weeks ago!

    Good luck to everyone though...looking forward to pics!

    H3y im really excited about this i was already planning to do this grow out challenge started 2012 on jan 1st! i want to join this WITH ALL OF YOU :) do we start putting pics of our hair up dec 31 and jan 1??
  • JeliahJeliah Posts: 248Registered Users
    a6cd8b68-9505-9abb.jpg I trimmed about an inch of split ends and the last little bits of color. Figured I should start the challenge fresh :-) Can't help feeling a little further from my goal, but I know its better for my hair in the long run. I don't expect to be a waist length or at least close till the end of '12
  • JeliahJeliah Posts: 248Registered Users
    I just wanted to clarify we will be updating our progress every 3 months. March, June, September and December.

  • JeliahJeliah Posts: 248Registered Users
    This is a pic of my curly hair. This is actually from a couple of months ago. I have 3c shrinkage so even if it did grow a little since then i can't see it. I only plan to get to waist length stretched. I don't think I could ever have waist length curly and I'm not sure I'd want to deal with these curls at that lengtha6cd89cf-0f1a-5bdb.jpg
  • JeliahJeliah Posts: 248Registered Users

    Yeah, I think it would take years for me to have waist length curly hair :/

    ok ladies.. This is a bit blurry but its up to date. Here's a shot of my hair wet earlier today; looks a little weird because its all blonde underneath and kind of looks like there's no hair there but there is. lol. Its right at the beginning of my back bs.. I also just started taking 3,000mcg of biotin 3 timesa day for a total of 9,000mcg a day and will be starting prenatals tomorrow.. We'll see how much has changed in March!!Super excited.

  • JeliahJeliah Posts: 248Registered Users
    @ Bina, Just a heads up, when I started taking biotin a couple of months ago I started to break out on my face and back a little bit. So I ended up cutting it down to one pill a day and my skin is fine now. I can tell its still working because my finger nails are growing like crazy and hair is growing faster Everywhere else :-/ lol.
  • CurlyCandii-CurlyCandii- Posts: 9Registered Users
    yes when i started taking biotin it broke my face out 2 so i started cutting it down some! i am currently using biotin. It really works for me! i am very excited to see the difference in March!
  • CurlyWurly2000CurlyWurly2000 Posts: 77Registered Users
    I just had another look at the other photo I posted and my hair looks really short in it for some reason so here are some better photos of my hair:

    My hair is slightly damp but hardly at all so it shouldn't make much of a difference!
