Update (A personal Protective Style Challenge)
(I swear I am going to update this blog more than I have been.)
So what has been going on with my hair?
I recently did a trim because my ends were jacked up with single strand knots everywhere! It wasn't a huge trim, I just snipped off the thin and raggedy ends. My hair/ends feels soo much better. I will talk about the trimming method I used in a later post. Right now I am in the middle of a personal protective style/low manipulation challenge. (I WILL go through with it this time -- I have promised myself that much.
Basically for three months (twelve weeks) I am going to keep my ends tucked away either in a protective style that is twist or braid based. What this means is that I will braid or twist my hair, put it into a protective style of some sort, and go on with my day. I might throw in some loose hair protective styles once in a while just to get used to working with my loose hair. Sometimes the loose hair is just too much...
I won't stray too far away from my normal routine other than the fact that my wash days will be different because of my wacky work schedule. I will continue with my usual weekly wash routine, but I will add a deep condition after every wash to help with the moisture retention and overall health of my hair. I have been doing the deep conditioning after every wash for at leas three weeks now and I can see an improvement in my hairs health.
Hopefully, within these three months I will gain about two inches of hair and reach my goal of APL hair that is stretched. *crosses fingers* If you guys would like to participate, you are welcome to! Please let me know the results! ^_^
How about you guys? Do you have any goals you want to achieve (hair wise or not) within the next few months? Share them!
