Hey ladies, my hair turned out perfectly this morning. I love the new look. I tied the the twist down with a scarf so my ends are pinned safely (lol) on top of my head instead, I moisturized and replaced scarf. SO this will be my new style for now on, I will keep the twist in my hair for about 3-5 days, take it down and cowash, dc or whatever I'm doing,  and retwist. T Think this style will get me a lot of retention by June..

I am doing a self challenge with myself as well during this.... braids until summer break. NO WEAVES! I have to save up for my AV purchase + CV closure next summer going into my senior year of college... i'm so excited and I want to be stress free (meaning low maintenance) of my natural hair. I will wear it out more during next fall and winter being that June 22nd is my 2 year nappiversary. I should be APL or BSL by that time *crossing fingers*

Repost From Wsl Thread: Tongue

My hair has a lot of shrinkage, so I tried to take some more sneak peaks of my length,,, I Did a ACV rinse, then massaged with coconut milk, Then I applied Honey, molasses and Conditioner. After that I did my regular twist sealed with castor oil and pinned in a updo.. WSL here I come !! LOL

    Hey ladies just checking I ended up putting some Kinky twist in my hair last weekend, because I felt myself slacking on my hair care regiment. So I have a head start on my protective styles now all I have to do I get started on my growth aids and I will be well on my way to a healthy hair journey . I plan to leave this set in  until the middle to end of January Depending on when I start classes. 

By the way how do you post pictures again?

Heavy, don't you know it girl!!! Gosh it's become like my signature style or something.....Twist it, bun it, tie a scarf over it when the edges get too fuzzy. I need to snap out of this LAZINESS!!! I used to ALWAYS have some kinda style in my hair now I've gotten too comfy.

@Cherry your hair is GORGEOUS! I'm sure you'll get a lot of nice retention come June! Can't wait to see your progress.

And as of now I am....bunned. I co-washed with Tresemme's, plaited the ponytail part and pinned it under with a bobby pin and scarved it. So regular. I'm trying to find this doggone Marley Twist hair somewhere so I can do these Marley Twists that I just LOVE!!!! Imma try one last stop, the Super Beauty Depot, and I hope that'll be the end of my journey. It's either that, or I will go into my yarn braids. We shall see!

Cherry89, beautiful hair!

I finally got my flw all I gotta do is get it cut and styled and trim my own ends. I'm so ready to be in protective style mode.

Heavy, when I first started doing them I would redo them once a week and then as my hair got used to the style they would last two weeks...there were times I would keep them in for 3 weeks when my schedule was too crazy. I got a lot of compliments with that hair style. You get crazy shrinkage though.

IA Cherry89 your hair is lovely..I love the thickness!

Thank you ladies!Smile, I'm trying to get like y'all and rock some twists, and i'm loving it. I can keep it in for about 4-5 days with low manipulation.  I'm almost 5 months post relaxer. This is the furthest I ever went, I usually break between 3-4 monthsLOL
