I just steamed with my homemade dc (banana, avocado, olive oil, honey)...after a good bent clay wash.  life is good! :-)

The Challenge officially begins in less than 3 days, ladies!!! :-D

@ Heavy,
I'm glad your hair liked the dc.
Yep,I will just use the older one when I flat-ironed. Thanks ;)

My hair is in a wet bun, after I co-washed with molasses and honey. I forgot to get the avocados and mayo from the store. So I will try to do it Wed.

Tomorrow will make a week of em and they're already fuzzing and frizzing, but that's partly because when I keep in styles like this, I mist it with water/leave in mix, and oil and massage the scalp on a nightly basis. My styles never stay looking fresh because of that, but in the end I get a lot of great growth and my hair looks healthier coming out of a protective style, so I'm not particularly "frazzled" by it looking old within a week.

Since I'm back to working out again (trying to stay on track this time...) It's necessary that I wash it at least weekly, I was gonna try to go a month but my scalp will NOT let that happen. I'll wash tomorrow, retwist the edges and see how that fares out. 3 more days til we officially start ladies!

yeah, i keep trying to go for at least a week between washes but my scalp will have nothing of it. it don't play. so i think i'm gonna stick with once per 4-5 days. thought i was the only one! i keep hearing all these folks on here talkin bout they can go for min. of 2 wks between washes up to a month, and i get downright angry. that's soooo not fair!Angry

PLEASE READ

Call this being bored since I am done with school or I am trying to be helpful but I made a Google Docs for this challenge. It is a spreadsheet of all the info for each participant.

LINK HERE
(the link is also in my sig below, so whenever you need to see it, just look for one of my posts)

There are some problems with some people and I indicated next to your username bold and red under the applicable column.

I made it so everyone who has the link can edit it. But if you don't feel like it or can't you can shoot me a PM and I will change it myself.


Hope this Helps, Can't Until Challenge officially starts

I'm still in my yarn braids. I'm itching to take them out because I don't really like how they turned out. I was being lazy during the installation *shrugs* I think I'm going to take these out through the course of this week starting in the middle so I can bun them until they're all the way out. I'll twist, moisturize, and seal each section of hair as I take them out.

After that's done, I'll take the twist out on the 9th or 10th of January and rock a bun for that weekend and probably that whole week of school. (We start on the 14th of jan). Ill steam+dc but I'm trying to get into the habit of washing no more than twice a month.
Around or before the 20th I'll get a professional trim (all my self trims are fails) and go into synthetic box braids because my hair will have a week or two week break but I'll be bunning during that break from braids.
