Protective Style Challenge Update 1 30days

Hey you,
I tried though right?

On the 31st of October I decided to sit and do my corn rows till midnight lol, my arms were sore the whole week that week but I am happy with the outcome!

In case you are wondering what I am talking about, I have come up with a protective style challenge where I will be keeping corn rows on my hair for 8 weeks which should be 60 days and you can read more about it here. So it has been officially a month now and I miss playing with my hair lol, I really do though so another 4 weeks is a long stretch *tear drop*.

I have been washing my hair twice a week and sometimes 3 times a week depending on my scalp. I started washing with the vegetable soap once a week for the first 2 weeks and the 3rd wash would be with shampoo. Then for the past 2 weeks it has been water wash twice and then the soap once which would fall on the weekend.

After washing my hair, I thoroughly rinse it, I run a good amount of water through the hair so that no soap or shampoo is left and then I seal with oil(avocado oil, olive oil and castor oil), or sometimes apply some leave in conditioner and seal. But mostly I have been just sealing with oil after washing. I baggy my hair the night before wash day which is the day in between wash days. For example if I wash my hair on a Monday then I would baggy Tuesday night. If this happens before wash day, I oil my hair and then baggy all night.
Bagging the hair has been amazing! Bagging hair is wearing a plastic bag or plastic shower cap on your head, it creates a greenhouse effect and helps your hair with moisture retention. That is moisture galore, I can feel the hairs that have freed themselves are very soft. When the hair is in corn rows, there is hair that is hidden in between and this helps the moisture reach that hair.

The first week I was wearing head wraps, looking all submissive. Then the second week I was wearing a wig, the one that I created on this post. For the past 2 weeks I made a new wig, check it out on Instagram, the people are loving it! I might just get into business soon. I will be wearing it for the next 2 weeks and then maybe head wraps again on the final week and take down time! I can’t wait to see the results, I can feel the growth already and my inner naturalista is jumping up and down (the corn rows are hidden now).

That's it from me. Let me know how far you are, if you have joined or if you are still considering to join me. The time is moving fast, but not for the hair. Patience is key ladies and I am learning this in every aspect of my life. Most important thing is to enjoy the moment you are in.

Until next post, God bless…
