My Boho Braid Style (Twist out)

This style is easy, cute, and fun! I ran across a YT video that showed me how to do this style with my own hair! I was so excited because I was planning to buy one of those fake braid Headbands to switch it up a bit! Happy to have found that video (accidentally) ! I was anxious to see how mine wojld turn out if I tried it- and Im happy to report that it turned out to look bettwr than I expected! :)

My twist out is still looking fresh too! Love it! Thank you Jesus!

My perfect twist out (so far)

I am still on my 3 months protective style challenge! But after 5 days of having twists in my hair I got bored :/ *Whomp-Whomp* I should've known this since I love to switch up my hairstyles. I was hoping to make my twists last for as long as possible (maybe 2 weeks or so). My twists were looking very silky, shinny, and felt really soft- but my anxiety kicked in and I could not stand one more day with them installed. 
My plans are to twist my hair Sundays, rock them for 5 days, and enjoy my loose hair for 2 days (twist out style/low manipulation style). So, in this challenge I will rock loose hair for 2 days in 1 week and still laying off my wash and go's. Will update if I add any other changes to my challenge :)

Products used: Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque (for twisting) Shea Moisture Curl enhancing smoothie (every other day to refresh my twists after spritzing my ends with a water for added moisture and shine)

Im not trying to make a statement!!

Its just who I am- thats all :)

R.I.P Wash & GO- ( 3 Months Protective Style Challenge)

Yesterday I began my 3 months protective style challenge.I have decided to lay my wash and go's to rest (for now). I am not saying that wash and go's have ever given my hair any negative effects but now that my hair is getting longer I want to ensure that I retain most of my length, if all isn't possible. The only way for me to do this is by challenging myself for 3 months and see if there is really a noticeable difference in hair growth retention. I am still 100% heat free- I have absolutely no desire to add heat to my hair or to straighten it just to see its true length.My goal with my natural hair is to see its real health and growth potential.

Also, by doing this protective style challenge I will not only give my hair a break from being managed every 5-6 days or even a week, I am also giving myself a break ( a much needed one)- My hair is thick and requires much time to do my hair with proper care.Rushing while I am doing my hair is not on my "To-DO" list.
