2013 BSL Growth Challenge

MissConstruedMissConstrued Posts: 323Registered Users
I'm currently working to grow my hair to BSL after almost 2 years of not taking proper care of my curls. I'm hoping to get people to join so we encourage each other and compare methods (i.e., types of protective styling if any, oiling, LOC vs. LCO methods, vitamins, protein shakes, etc.). Any and all advice and/or feedback is welcome as long as it is not derogatory.

I'm currently at collar bone length when stretched. I've just started using Terressentials mud wash to cleanse my hair, SheaMoisture as a leave-in, castor oil as a sealant, and Eco Styler (the pink one) as my styling agent.

    I just straightened to get the full effect of growth over the past few months, finally hit BSL with the bottom layer :) top layer is between BSL and APL

    Thanks Kay Rae! I'm starting a new hair method today. I'm not good at straightening (lack of patience + weather issues where I'm at). I'm beginning to make Rosemary tea daily, I'm trying to see if I can keep my hair twisted at least 3-5 days out of the week, and taking vitamins.

    Ok I'm in! I'm currently about one inch past collar bone length and hope to be at bra strap length this time next year. I have 4a, high porosity, fine texturized hair.

    Thanks UBCURLY! What are you doing to aid you hair growth? I'm still trying to find a good way of tying my hair up at night so it's not all tangled. Satin bonnets does nothing for me!
