I'm just lurking in here. I had a set back last year and was unable to do twist. So I did wash and goes last year through mid April this year. I've been doing 2 strand twists since mid-April and it is such a relief to having a break to doing my hair. Will stick with twist for a while and just try wash and goes on my weekends I color my hair for now.
I cleansed and conditioned this morning. I will twist it up tomorrow.
i dont have a chelating shampoo but i may have to invest in it because i do think the water here has something in it. There's like a white residue that we have to clean off the dish drying thing too so i dunno whats going on with the water here but i think its some type of water softener or somethingDo you think it may be the water or maybe minerals or residue from the pipes? Do you have a chelating shampoo or a shampoo that removes mineral deposits that you can try?
I've seen some ladies wear the two buns and it looked really good on them. If you have the confidence to wear them, roc themI took the cornrows down so that I could give my hair, especially my scalp, a good wash. I had scratched my scalp really bad so it needed a wash to start the healing process. So now I have been braiding my hair at night and when I go out I take those down and put my hair up in buns. Usually two buns on either side of my head.
I know its a kid hairstyle but I like it, and it keeps my hair out of face and off my neck. Not sure what style I will do next. Maybe some braids with extensions. My hair becomes super frizzy really fast because it is so hot and so humid right now. I'm not sure anything without hair added would last for very long.
I want to join this challenge but I'm scared I've been protective styling for a week, and that's like the longest I've ever join .
@snoop Can I commit to just a month for now? And the style has to be in for at least 5 days, so washing and restyling every 3-4 days would be against the rules?
Sounds like the stuff I be doingWhy did I put in these dang braids!!! These are so not my style and they took 50,000 hours to put in . I cannot wait to take these out on Sunday and do a bun . If I post in the next 6 months that I want to do braids or twists, please remind me of this post
Finally joining this challenge! Here are my answers.
1. What is your primary style (twists, braids, bunning, etc.)?
Twists mainly. Occasionally braids and buns if I get tired of the twists.
2. What is your style maintenance regimen?
I'll be refreshing my twists 1-2 times every week and take down them down every 2 weeks for wash day.
3. Are you natural, relaxed, transitioning?
4. What do you hope to achieve from the challenge?
I hope to keep my ends happy and grow out my hair out as much as possible.
5. How often will you restyle your hair?
Every 2 weeks.
6. Include Starting Pic.
Here we are! Let my hair air dry yesterday before twisting up today.

I actually started getting compliments on it. I still like so much that I'm going to keep doing the style even when I'm done putting these twists in.I've seen some ladies wear the two buns and it looked really good on them. If you have the confidence to wear them, roc them
