Natural Hair Romance 90 Day Protective Style Challenge!!!

I recently cut about 2 inches off my hair because the ends were damaged and split.  It took me 4 months to grow those 2 inches and now I want them back and then some….lol.  Since my trim, I have been thinking of different ways that I can care for my hair without hardly any manipulation.   My overall goal is to grow my hair to waist-length with my “DREAM GOAL” being hip or classic length.  I hope to reach my WL goal in 2013!  I’m right at BSL, even after the trim but I still feel like I have a ways to go to reach my goal. 
I will be incorporating protective styling into my hair care regimen so I’m starting with a 90 day Protective Style Challenge for myself and anyone else who wants to join in!  :-)  The goal is to keep my hair in a protective style (PS) for 80-90% of the time over the next 90 days or 3 months.  I’m growing this head of hair OUT!  I will also eating a healthier diet, exercising, and taking vitamins.  I may also use some growth aids (MN mix and others). 
I’m not using products to grow my hair because care and handling is the most important thing for growth, when it comes to my growth and length retention.  However, I do use the “As I Am” product line (the leave-in, co-wash, and moisturizer), Elasta QP Cream Conditioning Shampoo, any Dominican deep conditioner, Rapunzal’s Hair of the Future Protein treatment, Proclaim Natural 7 Oil and other terrific natural oils (EVOO, EVCO etc)…and that is it.  I’m hoping to promote a faster growth rate and retain some more hair.
