Two Month Protective Styling Challenge
 
Okay, so I'm doing a protective style challenge for the months of January and February. I'm doing mini twists for the first month, and box braids for the second month.

I'm also aiming for complete mid-back length by the end of February which will be my 2.5 year mark of being natural and my 3.5 year mark of growing my natural hair.

(As soon as I figure out how to upload a picture, I will do so!)

Anyone want to join me? Come on! You know you want to...

@Amethyst_Kisses @dee-nature

Yay! So, the rules aren't strict:

- Just wear a protective or low manipulation hair style.
- Keep hair moisturized. (I'm using coconut, castor, and olive oil on my scalp and hair after every wash and on the ends when needed.)
- Keep your scalp clean so your pores won't get clogged. (I will be washing once or twice a week.)

I'm going to try to keep my twists in for the whole month, then do the same for the braids.

Anyone want to add on?

Oh! And I wash with conditioner only, but that's not apart of the rules. I just wanted to throw that in there...

@dee-nature Yes! I didn't want to do anything extreme. One step at a time, one step at a time. Haha!

Oh I am definitely in! I just made APL and I was already on a personal protective style challenge so this is perfect ladies.

I'll be installing some Marley Twists soon and will rotate between those and wigs. When do you want us to post pictures?

CURLYanddy_ 12-16-2012 08:49 PM

@SimplyT Yay! Go girl! At the end of this month would be good and then not another one until we are completely done. But the thing is... I don't know how to post pictures! :(

I'm in! I've been wearing my hair loose lately and I would like to protect it for the remaining harsh wintery months and to help retain length to reach my waist length goal. (:

My protective style of choice will be bun and braids w/o extensions and lot and LOTS of shea butter!!!

CURLYanddy_ 12-17-2012 12:27 AM

@LoveInBetween Cool! Let's do this! Don't forget to post a picture at the end of this month. HOPEFULLY, I will be able to figure out how to do so by then... :/

I just put in crotchet braids for my protective style. I'm going to try and do protective styles for at least the next 3 months. I used no heat for 3 months in the summer and my hair grew loads! Fingers crossed ladies :hello2:

CURLYanddy_ 12-17-2012 02:58 PM

@Nadiva99 Okay, cool. That looks good! And you have a really nice bone structure. :)

Thank you. It was really easy to do and easy to maintain. I will take pics of my next protective style and keep an eye on the growth. I too co-wash!

LoveInBetween 12-17-2012 03:41 PM

Okay, got it. And it looks like we all co wash.. (:
