I made APL early December. [As you can see, not all of my hair is APL. My hair grows in layers so the back is APL. The front and sides range from chin to shoulder length.] I blew out my hair and lightly flat ironed it; so lightly that it still looked like a blow out. I did some aggressive dusting on my ends because I couldn't remember the last time I dusted or trimmed my hair. Yes, I need to get on a trimming schedule. Every 6 months should suffice with dustings in between when necessary. Anyhow........
I didn't do anything spectacular to achieve it like drink monkey balls sweat or oil my scalp with a magic hair growth potion every night before bed. I simply stuck with my usual regimen (condition and wash every 1-2 weeks and moisturize daily and/or as needed) and kept my hair in protective styles like wigs when I was too lazy to style my hair, various up-do's that kept my ends tucked away and crochet braids. Since the cold weather hit, I can count on one hand how many times I've worn my hair completely out. I'm so serious that the fro just won't be unleashed hard core till the spring time.
