I started my winter hair challenge December 20th, as soon as the season changed. I decided to do a heat challenge because its too cold for me to continue wash n go’s. Welp, that lasted a month! The first time I straightened my hair and loved it (check out my Instagram for pics). The second time was two weeks later, at which time I went ahead and got a professional trim.
It’s two weeks later, and I decided a month of heat was enough. I have no heat damage and I want to keep it that way. Plus, its impossible to keep my hair straight while exercising 7 days a week, so I decided to do a winter braid out challenge. Yep, braid outs! I usually stay away from braid outs because they take too long to take down, but I figure if I do less braids, I’ll be ok.
It has been forever and a day since I did a braid out, so I plan to start doing them next weekend when its not a day off. In the mean time I did a twist out post wash this weekend (video will be up later this week). Anyways, the challenge rules:
Wash my hair weekly
Moisturize and seal daily
No-restyling (too much manipulation)
Finger detangle only
Shhh!!! I am slowly becoming a finger detangling convert (more on that later). Anyways, this challenge will continue until Spring, March 20th, at which time I will do a length update and trim.
Until then, Happy Growing!!!!
