  1. Still stunned but worried.

    Ok, so I'm still feeling pretty shocked over my sneak peek. I mean, even tho I've visualized length and have been watching my progress pics...uh...progress, I'm still floored because I usually have my hair braided up and tucked away. I try not to watch my hair grow except thru pics. So, if you're stunned, that makes two of us.

    But there are two things that I'm worried about. The first is that I'm going to do something to muck it all up. But that doesn't concern me half as much as ...
  2. Airdrying and How I wore my hair.

    I'm getting a lot of pm's asking various questions and, as talkative as I am, I'm going into great detail trying to respond. But, I'm finding myself responding to the same types of questions. So, I'm posting some of my responses in an effort to share as much information as possible with everyone.

    I was asked about my method of airdrying and how I wore my hair so that it was presentable (or something like that). Here's my response:

    Early on, I did a lot of wet bunning. ...
  3. Updated Reggie (including recipe for my sulfur mix)

    My reggie has been updated. Below is my original reggie along with the link to the sulfur mix. My current reggie is here.

    I'm being asked for my updated reggie so often that I've decided to just copy my response to someone's message to me asking for it.

  4. 2 inches of growth in March?! Oh yeah!

    For those of you asking, my reggie is basically the same with a few tweaks. I don't have time to go back and compare it to what I posted previously. Here's what I shared with a friend today:

    Daily cowashing. I'm mainly using Mill Creek Biotin Conditioner, ApHogee 2 min reconstructor, NTM Daily Deep Conditioner for my regular cowashes. (ETA: I don't use ApHogee daily. Weekly and/or as needed. But it stays in my shower. )

    For deep conditioning, I use NTM Recovery Mask ...
  5. In the beginning...My reggie as posted in March 2010.

    Mainly, I'm keeping lots of moisture on my hair. I'm in a baggied bun challenge and a wet bun challenge. It's real easy for me because I cowash practically every day. I clarify maybe once a month, otherwise, I'm just using conditioner. While it's wet, I'm spraying my hair with a mixture of aloe juice & water. I squeeze it a bit so that it's not dripping wet. The I use NTM leave in (or bioInfusion Moisturizer) and seal with coconut oil. I recently started using Elasta QP Olive Oil and Mango Butter ...
