- Eat approx 50 grams of protein everyday
* I do this just about everyday.

- Take a suppliment and has all essential vitiams and minerals
* Everyday aswell, I maybe missed it twice in 2 or 3 months.

- Deep condition at least 2 times a week with lipid rich conditioner and use non-sls shampoo
* I do this aswell. It's rec'd to leave it overnight but my hair doesn't feel good the day after when I do that. Just bought some new highly rec'd Shampoo too, John Master's Organics.

- Protein treatment once a month
* Check, will be doing another on on the 15th.

- Use a dry oil ans shea butter
* I ran out of the oil but have been using the shea butter to seal my ends when my hair is coming out of the shower. Ordered some more oil that I'll use everyday.

- I use a shower filter
*check

- Try to drink 6 or more glasses of water a day
* Bum bum. Have been falling behind on this and really need to pick up my game!!

- TRY to not stress
* Work's a bit better atm.

- Try to get enough sleep
* Averaging around 8 hours a night.

- No heat
* CHECK!

- No dye, no chemicals
* Check check!
- No products containing alcohol, includes hairspray
* I had to use one small spray of hairspray just on my bangs a few weeks ago.  Wasn't even my hairspray, I don't own any!

- Scalp massages
* I have been doing these, but I think I need to do them for longer. I'd do 30secs when I should be doing 2-3 mins. I don't want to be rough on my hair though!

- No elastic bands
* Have been pretty good with this, but have needed to use them once or twice. But I had it very loose and not in a high pony with lots of pressure.



I'll be redoing this every month to keep myself accountable.

I will post pictures when I get more length. I'll then post a starting and progress picture.


I must admit, I'm feeling a little guilty today. When getting ready to go out last night, my hair was frustrating me so much so I quickly and lightly curled my hair with a curling iron. Cry

This is what happens when you have 15mins to get ready.

Well part from pinning it back, i'd probably use a wax to sort of make it do what I wanted.

I can sort of see that my virgin hair is slightly darker than my bleached hair that was been dyed my natural colour. I like how it looks!

I think my hair's looking better.... slowly.

Also, how much water does everyone drink everyday and when do you drink it?

I was thinking too that summer's coming up, I've never really cared before, but I'll be wearing a hat to shield it from the sun.

There's a girl at LHC who's hair grew 10 inches in 12 months!! Oh god I hope mine grows at least close to that. I'd be at my goal in like a year!

thanks for the advice i will try some wax. whats some good brands? currently i use alot of headbands and bobbipins when im around the house.
omg 10 inches in a yr is amazing i think everyone wishes for that. ally we should measure our hair and compare every month. what do u think?

I drink tons of water. I am not sure how much exactly, but I think about a case of water in 2 days. I drink it all day and night. I even take a water bottle with me to bed and leave it on my night stand.

Did you say that summer's coming up? where do you live? Do you live in Australia?

natorade, yes I do live in Australia!

I need to drink more water, I don't know why it's so hard. I think it's cause it's so cold at the moment. I hope I start to drink more as it warms up because it's so crucial!

I love the look of straight bangs. I've had side swept bangs for literally as long as I can remember so I'm growing them out at the moment. I want all my hair long! lol

I wonder if I'll wake up one day and think "wow, my hair is actually long!"

Probably not because it's so gradual and such a long process.
