    Just gorgeous! The thickness and the length are unreal. So perfect it looks like you bought that hair. I KNOW it is your hair.

    Thank you, my dear! It was thanks to the enthusiasm of you and the other Queen Shea ladies that my progress has been kicked up a notch! I'm really glad that I decided to give it another chance.

    How fabulous for you that Shea butter is helping and supporting your length retention process. I'm glad when you gave it a second try that it worked! Thank you for the feedback. That is so nice of you to let us Queen Shea Ladies in Waiting, know.

    Here are some pics of my weeks old mini twists. They are super juicy and short due to all of the humidity.

    1. What is your primary style (twists, braids, bunning, etc.)?
    Twists that are worn up in a bun or braided with the ends tucked.

    2. What is your style maintenance regimen?
    The regimen is very simple because even though caring for my hair is sort of a hobby, I don't have a lot of time and I'm hair lazy.
    - I shampoo and deep condition my loose hair once a month, then braid it to let it stretch while it air drys. After which I put my hair in twists the following day.
    - From then on I care for my hair in twists for the month making sure to moisturize and seal every other day. I also continue to shampoo and condition my hair in twists and air dry them stretched in braids. I pay extra attention to my ends making sure to add more moisturizer and oil to them.
    - I retwist the twists along the hairline and any other twists that look raged after a wash.
    - My twists are kept in buns or braided up making sure to always tuck the ends.

    I just started my hair growth journey with this regimen last month so it's still a work in progress. Still experimenting with hairstyles and methods like African threading to stretch my hair more.

    3. Are you natural, relaxed, transitioning?
    Natural

    4. What do you hope to achieve from the challenge?
    Hope to find methods that I can add to my routine that reduce single strand knots. Trying to go 6 months before my next trim.

    5. How often will you restyle your hair?
    I take down the twists and redo them once a month.

    I'm still going at it. I had my hair in medium twists two weeks ago, but didn't like it so switched to mini twists this week. Didn't like them either. Took them out yesterday and attended a festival with a twist out. I'm going to change my parts and retwist tonight or tomorrow.

    Thanks for keeping this thread alive ladies. I needed a break from my hair so have put in box braids. Going to try to keep it put away for a while and maybe until the end of the year.

    Will revisit twist in the fall and see where I am.
