I have been on a hair journey for the past year and a half. My ULTIMATE goal is waistlength hair. I am a 28 year old mother and wife interested in growing longer, stronger hair. I am a relaxed, 2a (edges) to 3a/b (crown) hair type. I am loving the ladies of bhm right now....


My current regimen:

1. Daily moisturizing with S2S moisturizer
2. 3-4 times per week use of S2S hair oil (sleep with baggy to treat ends)
3. Wash once weekly and deep condition with S2S deep conditioner with plastic bag under hooded dryer or conditioning cap for 20-25 minutes
4. Once monthly treatment with scalp oil mixture (sage, sulfur, rosemary, tea tree oil) to combat dry scalp and stimulate growth
5. Prepoo with non lathering shampoo and con mix and hair oil before washing
6. Relax with Soft N Beautiful (reg) every 10-12 weeks depending on new growth and how well I can manage to stretch..I'll be shooting for 14-16 weeks soon.
7. Clarifying shampoo treatment once per month, usually the week after I have done scalp treatment. Now that its getting cooler I will be starting a monthly ACV rinse to clarify.
8. once daily multivitamin supplement and hair/skin/nails supplement
9. Scalp massage from hubby once every two weeks to stimulate growth


*I have officially added diluted Lottabody to my regimen for roller sets, wraps, etc.

I also have added V05 detangling spray as well as NTM Silk Touch for added moisture between washes.

I am currently on a no direct heat personal challenge. I usually air dry. I have been doing the air dry techniques for four months now. I keep my hair wrapped in a satin scarf (in a baggied pony) when I am at home. I try to wear protective styles, pony's and buns when I am out and about all day. I wear my hair down for church functions, holidays and on those 'pretty' days when I just feel like glamming up.




Current goals:

APL Made it ! (December 2007)
BSL Made it finally!! (October 2008)
WL by September 2009

Motivations:
My husband, he loves that I am ONLY wearing my natural hair
My kids, my boys say "Mommy you look pretty!"
My Mother, she used to wake me up at 5am on Sundays to have my hair pressed.
Stacey, the girl has some gorgeous hair and she developed a great line of hair products.
