In my original challenge post, I was hoping to gain 1.5 inches in 3 month, which is perfectly reasonable. The point was to focus in on length retention again, meaning the overall health of my hair while stepping away from the scissors. I did not DC twice a week as intended, but I did moisturize daily and deep condition once a week, usually with heat.
Month 1 I bunned my hair and retained 1 inch, for months 2 and 3 I did wash and go’s. This past weekend I did a length check, so that I knew my hair length before starting my fall hair challenge. Without further ado, the results:
Goal met! My hair is now mostly 11.5 to 12.5 inches around, which means that I retained 1.5 inches!!!! Its the small things that really motivate me to continue to pursue length. Next week I will do a more detailed post about how I plan to retain length while maintaining Wash N Wear Hair over the next couple of months.
