I started this Fotki as a way to document my hair growth progress. Before starting this journey I used to go to the Dominican salon every weekend and get a blow-out and then wear my hair out EVERY day (and wrap at night). My hair would NEVER grow past SL. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. After reading Cathy Howse's book in July 2007, I decided to take her 365 day challenge. It has completely changed my hair!! I have also learned so much from the ladies on BHM and Fotki. I now wear my hair in protective styles 90% of the time and I haven't been to a salon in over a year. Currently my hair is APL and my goal for 2009 is to reach full MBL. This is my long term goal so if I can make it to that length I will just work on maintaining MBL.
I am still learning more and more each day about my hair's wants and needs. Check out my current regimen in My Journals section.

Wish me luck on my hair growth journey and feel free to offer any advice!
