On Jan­u­ary 1, 2012, we did our first ever group BGLH chal­lenge! More than 100 of you joined the effort to stay account­able in keep­ing our ends tucked and mois­tur­ized to ensure length reten­tion. Well, we’re doing it again!! And we’d love for you to join us on this 3 mon­th jour­ney, from today, Feb­ru­ary 1 to April 30. Click here if you’re inter­est­ed in join­ing, and/or want to see par­tic­i­pa­tion rules and require­ments.

Hi Gals,
I final­ly have my begin­ning pics, but the file size is over 2MB! Here’s a link to my youtube video with pics. Over the last cou­ple days, I’ve been wear­ing a bun. I cow­ashed and applied KBB Hair But­ter to seal the ends. I’ll prob­a­bly do a braid out on Fri­day night and try dif­fer­ent styles through out the week. My hair hasn’t been this short since tran­si­tion­ing 3 years ago, and it’s a bit of a chal­lenge.

Hey girls, my hair is about nape of the neck length, after my big chop three weeks ago. My goals are to reach shoul­der length by the begin­ning of the sum­mer. I plan to keep my hair in braids, tuck and roll styles, and my fav go to french braids and up dos. images post­ed below…ttyl

Hey gals! Sor­ry I’m report­ing in so late. I had some growth, noth­ing notice­able when it’s not stretched. I was sick for about 60 days of this chal­lenge, includ­ing a cou­ple ER vis­its and surgery, so occa­sion, I could care less about my hair. I real­ly got into my YT videos and now that the chal­lenge is over, I can’t wear to try dif­fer­ent WnG styles. I’m def­i­nite­ly going to roll back into pro­tec­tive styles this fall, but until then, it’s going to be OUT OUT OUT! :) http://www.youtube.com/cococrispecurl
