@cherry.... here's a pic of my old roll tuck pin style on a poofy blowout rushed for work style





basically you roll a section of hair around ur fingers, tuck it under and pin it to secure. hence u have a roll tuck and pin style

i try to braid the sections pretty tightly

i might even consider starting to put a band or something at the roots & ends to further help reduce unraveling...dunno if it'll work...but maybe.  the only thing i worry about with that is my hair getting stuck in it! 

lol i hear you there. that would most definitely be counterproductive. Okay. next time i try twists i'll try braiding them to see if that works for me.

@cherry, i can't wait to use that dc - i leave it on overnight and my hair feels amazing when i rinse it out.  will probably do it during the week.  i am learning how to swim.  i took basic lessons years ago, but am not good so i finally decided to get good.  i love being in the water.  it's such a work out. i work out daily, but this swimming thing kicks my butt!

@littlebabybug, your hair is beautiful!  thanks sooo much for the info and tips. i am going to try to coil my hair tonight.  will take pics.  i want to do them biggish b/c i am swimming again this week and will have to take them out to wash.  plus, this is my first time so let me start a little bigger. tee hee. will let you know how it goes.  and yes, love swimming!  i would love to swim daily, but that's way too much washing for the hair!

@crunder, welcome!!  not too late to join. we don't "officially" start going until Jan.1.  just post your info before then and you're in! :-D

Amen to the bergundy! And ditto to the blue. Please do, to the green! My pleasure, to the purp purp lol.

@nay, beautiful style!

@littlebabybug, love the shorthand. lolol!

backed out on the coils...was too late when i was going to get started.  will maybe try tomorrow when i wash after swimming. i have my hair in big twists.  used purabody naturals leave in - it's really, really good s far!  then i put db's honey twisting cream and jc's nourish and shine on top of it...and of course my jbco.  my hair is springy and moisturized. :-)

the purabody was a black friday deal!  love!

I was right. The alma and olive heavy cream is just awesome. I look forward to try more qhemet's products in the future.

I want in. Embarrassed

Hair Goal for June, 2013:

Healthy ends and as much length retention as possible--ideally at least 2.5"

Current Length and State of Hair (e.g., relaxed, natural, texlaxed):

Natural EL/NL, I guess

PS of Choice:

Braids (crochet braids, faux locs, cornrows under wigs)

Detailed Regimen while in PS: 
  • Cleanse, DC, & moisturize 2x/week (midweek - cowash; weekend - shampoo; I may supplement this with daily rinsing & moisturizing as the weather gets warmer and/or between installs while I'm wigging)
  • "Dry" baggy nightly
  • I'm planning to treat myself to a steamer this Christmas so I can incorporate that into my DC sessions
Biggest Hair Issue at the Moment:

SPLITS--ends, mid-strand, you name it. Extremely wiry lo-po hair + loose, unstretched kinks & bends + laziness = Confused

Favorite Product:

Water!

I'm going to rollerset and flat iron for an aggressive trim before I install my faux locs so I won't have to do monthly mini-chops throughout the challenge. (It's probably best that way anyway so splits don't have time to travel up the shaft. I'm still going to maintain quarterly [March 21 & June 21] for preventative purposes, though--no more than .25" at a time.) I'll do a length check and take pics then.
