    Well done! :D I think SL/APL is one of the toughest to reach, so the rest should come easy :)
    Fine 3c type, loves protein. BS length when straight, aiming for BS length when curly!

    That's reassuring, cause I just reached APL too (about 2 months ago) and I want to get to WL but I was like geez APL took long will BSL take? Or MBL? I just try to forget my hair exists basically so it'll grow quicker. Lol

    btw how do you keep your hair sooo straight?? everytime i try to straighten it it frizzes right back up its so annoying D: is there like certain products you use in your hair before you straighten??

    I don't really do anything thing special to get it straight besides check the 10 forecast lol. If it looks like it'll rain alot I won't straighten it or I'll keep a scarf and umbrella on deck. My straightening regi is as follows

    Shampoo with a sulfate
    Deep condit with heat
    Rinse thoroughly and apply my leave in which is usually Lacio Lacio
    I applied a little bit of grapeseed oil as a heat protectant before blow drying
    I blow dry with a round brush and flat iron on about 370. I also flatiron very small sections at a time and use the comb chasing technique on each section. Doing this i notice that i only need to do 1-3 passes on each section. Too much heat is bad but not enough and I'll just be wasting my time trying to get my 4 type hair straight. And to stave off reversion I only use cream leave ins and oils when it's straight.

    congrats! you and your hair looks great. my mini goal is bsl when curly im almost there though i find it hard to measure cause how curlY it is

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
