Well, I put my last relaxer in November 2002, and i am just a couple inches past shoulder length.  So, probably around three years....
 
no new updates for me...still growing...i'm on a continued protective style challenge (alternating between twists, french braiding and buns), so i'll sign up for a growthchallenge if anyone else's interested

Hi ladies

When you speak of castile soap for washing hairdo you mean a regular bar of castile soap? Or is it something different?

Well- I got a trim today- to even up the side that was longer than the other and get rid of some rough ends. I went to Mastercuts and the lady did a great job. She condition washed me first- combed through with the conditioner in it- rinsed and cut my hair with scissors.

I am so sorry for the late reply just noticed the question. A lush hard water shampoo bar ( is basically shampoo in the form of a soap bar- this one does contain sls but it was quite gentle on my natural hair and my hair looked and felt great afterwards) YOu can find them at Lush stores or www.lush.com

Also, What is a lush hair bar and how does it work?

Well i don't do protective styles- i am so bad- i know i need a spanking so after almost 3 years- i'm grazing collarbone but shoulderlength is within my reach. But then again i do trim my hair more than most of the ladies here so that could be it too. I usually trim 3 to 4 times a year to get rid of splits and faerie knots. My hair is really thick and doing quite well though- i don't press- just wear a shrunken fro daily.

For those of you who did the BC in the past how long did it take you to reach, say, shoulder length?
I'm in!

Well- my hair is doing quite well. I have been cowashing 5 times a week and using a leavin. I pre-poo(castor oil/honey), shampoo and condition on one day and on the other poo day i pre-poo(castor oil/honey), shampoo, condition/deep condition.

Currently loving: Castile soap to shampoo with (trader joe's) or Dr. Bronner's bar or liquid castile soap from www.thechemistrystore.com . I also obtained some hemp shampoo and conditioner, neem shampoo and rich creamy conditioner base (which are all great) frow www.wellnaturally.com

Conditioners: love Alberto Vo5- just started using this, also trader joe's essential, trader joe's refresh and my old standby saloncare conditioners

Surge 14 plus hair revitalizer is nothing but the truth. I have seen growth all over from using this consistently.

I am also taking my vitamins daily and drinking water.

I also still oil my scalp/ends nitely and apply a thin plastic cap.

Hey, Canopy, I hope you don't mind me using your message as a template.

-I did the BC on Feb 8  so it's been 2 months 2 weeks. Right now, my hair is about 4.5/5 inches in length

My current routine is:

-Eat a salad everyday
-Rinse 1x a week

  -CW about 1x a week

  -Perform a OCWCC wash once a week. I'm not sure if that's the correct term for this technique but I put some oil on my dry hair, then add conditioner right before I get in the shower, wet my hair, use some 'poo, condition, rinse, then use conditioner as a leave in.

  -add a leave in once a day
-Deep conditioner weekly or biweekly depending on how my hair feels


Products used:

VO5 kiwi lime conditioner, ARTec textureline smoothing shampoo, Regis Olive Oil conditioner, Jessicurl Aloeba conditioner. [DC] Jessicurl Weekly Deep Treatment


[Leave in] Oyin Whipped Pudding, Infusium, aloe, IC gel with sparkelites, shea butter, Paul Mitchell the conditioner

My Results:

 My hair seems to be growing. I've been wearing it a lot in bigger braids that don't look too stylish but keep my hair from drying out and don't take that long to put in.

Future plans:

I'm going to push for 3/4 inch a month from May-September. My hair seems to grow slower since I'm natural or maybe it's just that the length doesn't show up as much. I'm planning on going to get my first real trim since the BC this week. I want to be at shoulderlength by this time next year!!

I just checked my sig goals and realized I met all of them.


Type: 3c/4a Natural
Current Length: 6"
Goal: Healthy, tip of nose /neck/shoulder length hair.

Hey guys, long time no talk!!

Just an update

 -I did the BC on Feb 14  so it's been a little over 2 months. Right now, my hair is about 2.5/3 inches in length

My current routine is:

-vitamins daily

   -Daily temple and nape massages with WGO

  -CW about 5x a week

  -Perform a c-poo-c-c/ "cow" wash once a week. I'm not sure if that's the correct term for this technique but I cowash, use some 'poo, deep condition, then cowash at the end.

   -use honey/oil mixture as a prepoo once a week

-add a leave in twice a day

-use water as my styling tool every day! i shower at nights so in the morning, i just turn on the faucet, run my head under there, shake, apply leave in and keep on stepping!!

Products used:

[CW] Suave Humectress, VO5 Blueberries and Cream (sadly, i think it's now discontinued...i'm gonna be sad when this bottle runs out), NTM daily conditioner, J/a/s/o/n lavender and sea kelp conditioners. [DC] J/a/s/o/n conditioners, NTM mask, Garnier mask(really on the fence with this one)

[Shampoo] Dove Intensive Moisture, VO5 kiwi and lime clarifying

[Leave in] Salerm 21, lacio lacio (on the fence), s-curl (on the fence) IC gel with sparkelites (on the fence) shea butter for ends, WGO for temples/nape

My Results:

 I have found that my nape has really taken off with this, which makes me very pleased! it's still very damaged but there is some noted growth in this area. i also love the moring styling with water. this has probably been the most effective in keeping my hair on point. I did this at 8:30 this morning and my hair isn't dry let (1:00pm) which is major for me. the honey/evoo is also a keeper for me. my ends love this.

Future plans:

I'm going to push for an inch a month from May-September.I'm also gonna try to take care of ends and keep them moisturized hardcore. the search for the perfect leave in continues (i'm gonna try ntm next, after i finish up some products). I also want to learn how to do braidouts. I want to be past shoulderlength by this time next year!!

Hope you all are doing well!!

Hi Honeydoo,

    I don't trim my ends often, but I have seen a few splits and so I did the search and destroy method. However, I felt that wasn't working because of the curliness of my hair I was probably missing some and I was cause I would cut a strand and then realize it was the wrong strand . So I just decided to trim it all.   But the last time I did a full trim like that was around New Years.

Sounds like your stretch is going pretty well. How long do you plan to stretch?
