    pasting over from the transitioning forum. I'm not transitioning so I thought my post was more fitting here.
    ok, count me in.
    here will be my before pix, they were almost June 09

    May09Pictures035.jpg
    CURRENT LENGTH: about 2 in above bsl pulled, length Curly (front is just below collar bone, back just below shoulders)
    GOAL for 2010: bsl when pulled (my hair grows painfully slow, so about 2-3in by next year) and to be about 2in above bsl when curly (about where it is pulled now).
    I get a trim and little shaping every 13-14 weeks, hoping to stretch it out to 16 weeks and get a cut only every 4mos. For this year, not sure how well my hair will hold up yet, I went length but I want it healthy length.

    ok, after reading through this I'm really thinking of trying to stretch my "dustings" out to more like 20 weeks. I do need reshaping though, is that against the rules?

    anyone take biotin or hair, skin, nails vitamins?

    Ok I'm gonna come out of lurking to join too!:evil1:
    My hair's too short for protective styles or tying up at night but I do sleep with jojoba oil and a satin bonnet. I have to work on the water intake and plenty-of-sleep thing though (<--night owl).

    I was taking 3000mcg's of biotin daily for the past four months and it didn't seem to have any effect so I just started taking GNC Nourishair a couple days ago.

    I was taking the hair skin and nails from gnc a few mos ago and straight biotin this past month. I think it helped a little
    I just picked up some flax seed oil, for the omega-3's and just read that it's supposed to help with hair growth too. bonus! keep you posted on results.

    Hi my name is Dominique and I am new to naturally curly. Within the last few days I have come to realize that I am not going to flat iron or color my hair. My last color was in Feb, last cut (which was a major chop for a new bday look, 7 inches) in March, and my last flat iron was in May. My hair is fried and beyond damaged. Im psyched to do this challenge cuz it will further motivate me from trying to "fix" irreversible damage.

    I have about a 3b.. but then again I dont even know because it is soooooo damaged.

    May I join madame lol??

    no its not dusting is allowed trimming is not if your ends are REALLy damaged then trimming is ok BUT make sure trimming is not going to happen often.

    I am SO in.
    I just started taking GNC Women's Hair,Skin, and Nails Formula w/ 3000mcg Biotin [i took 2 caplets]
    and also 1500 MSM [just 1 pill]

    yesterday I co-washed, moisturized, and sealed with shea butter and two-strand twisted. i'm trying to finish my old conditioners so i can get new silicone free ones so hopefully that won't hold me back too much.

    good luck ladies :)
