After doing the Curly Girl Method for 30 days, I gotta tell you, I need a break. Washing, detangling, styling, and air drying my hair every 2 to 3 days is getting tiresome. I need a change. Plus, its getting kinda cold out there. So, with October only a week and a half away, I decided to make a new challenge for myself: Protective Style for 30 days. Mind you, i'll still be following the CGM by co-washing with Silicone free Shampoos and Conditioners, LOCing and deep conditioning weekly.
I am still debating on what to do as a protective style. I would love to do mini twist, but I always look at the end game... how long is this going to take me to take down? I do not want to spend 3 hours taking down a style. Mini braids would be even more time to take down but they would be more durable. At this point, I don't even feel like sitting for 4 hours to put in mini twist. The lazy part of my brain is telling me to go to a shop and have them put them in without adding hair. The frugal side of my brain is saying to call in a few favors. The realistic side of my brain is telling me to get off my butt, go get a trim, and take an afternoon and put my twist in. Only time will tell.
Who wants to join me for a 30 day protective style challenge!!!!!
