Summers here and the time is right, for a summer grow out challenge! This past year has been fun, I’ve played with braid outs, twist outs, cornrow styles, and mini twists. My focus has solely been on enjoying my hair, but as I was reminded by a vlog from Elle of Quest for the Perfect Curl, I have length goals. This has prompted me to joint the QFTPC Super Sparkly Summer Grow Out Challenge. I will participate for 3 months, July 14′ – September 14′ in hopes to gain and retain at least 1.5 inches of hair. I did a length check this past week:
I discovered that on average my hair is 10 inches around, the front is 9 inches due to a recent cut. Yes, in this past year I have had my hair cut several times for trims and shaping the fro. I do not plan to take any vitamins because I have acne and do not want to do anything to irritate that. I also plan to protective style, meaning no wearing my hair free for three months. I also plan to keep my hair as clean and moisturized as possible.
Challenge: July 14-September 14
Retention Method: Protective Style
Moisture Sources: Deep Conditioning 2x’s a week and daily moisturizing of ends
Next Length Check: August 1
Let’s Do This!!!
