Hey, can I join the challenge?  Cmesweet I also did the Susan G. Koman Race for a Cure in Washington, DC this summer.  I love that I was able to participate in some thing that helps everyone.

Welcome to the challenge Beauti...
 
 
I think I might make it a habit to do every year. Also, its great to see that so many people care about others and that even the survivors  find the time and strength to walk and run.
 
Just wished it wasn't so early in the morning though.
 
I think this challenge has really helped with my confidence if nothing else. I've been doing things this year that I always wanted to do but never did.  Big%20smile

I finally took my braids out. Been wearing it in a puff. I made it a monthClap, which that was all i could take. I had my friends sniffing my hair to see if it stinks...although they said it didn't, it looked stankin to me. So i removed them.

LOL Yeah, I remember when I used to have to take out my mom's braids after about two months of her wearing them.  Let's just say that it was quite a scentful occasion.  As of right now I'm challenging myself to wear my hair up for a month.  I'm going to wear it up in a bun everyday and wash/comb/deep condition once a week.  It's my method of protective styling.  I might even do it for longer.  I think it's a good way to reduce breakage (plus conserve on conditioner Wink

Ccmuffing that sounds like a good idea. I know on LHCF the have alot of bun challenges.
 
I don't even know what to do with my hair anymore....i'm getting tired of it. I'm thinking of headwraps and wigs for the next few days.

Beautieami maybe the perm didn't take because coarse hair requires more than 18 minutes to straighten [the relaxer claims coarse hair straightens in 18 minutes, coarse hair straightens in 25 minutes] and coarse hair requires more than 7.5 oz relaxer,my hairdresser uses a bigger jar.

Hey Ladies, i wanted to wish everyone happy holidays and all the best for 2008. i hope in 2008 all your dreams come true. God Bless you all!
 
So when i joined this challenge it was a bit rocky. But ladies, thanks for sticking it out. i was able to manage a few things.. My clothes are fitting much better and i am juicing..exercise has been 2 - 3 xs a week.
1 apple/ 2 carrots/2 celery sticks/1inch of ginger root/1 sm orange. tasty and good for the hair.
My hair has grown alot. i am able to actually get 2 decent braids at the side.bubbles i couldn't do this b4. I can also do a low puff at the back....barmy
 
Any challenges for 2008???
