I'm still wearing flat or two strand twists. I've also worn my hair out in braid out pontytails now that I finally have enough length.

I did cheat once and wore my wig one day- okay two days. :)

I'm going to need my stylist to redo these twists. She used 7 packs of hair and it's just so incredibly heavy, I can't do anything with it! :nono: Hopefully she doesn't charge me the same amount to redo.

I always forget to come in here and post because I don't really do much of anything with my hair. After this challenge is up, I'll be taking a break and doing wash & gos exclusively for the remainder of the summer. I will likely revisit once the weather starts to get cold again.

I saw this YouTube video on loose twists so now I want to attempt them this weekend. At what hair length do you all think this style will look good on, and have any of you attempted this style? Any tips for me? TIA

I'm taking these twists out tomorrow and getting a sew in next week. What a waste of $130.

I thought you were going to have her redo them? Did you ask her?

Took my twists out yesterday. Oiled my scalp but didn't do much else. Doing a dc, cowash today. Hopefully I will get it twisted up today. I am going to aim for that.

I have a memorial service to go to next Saturday, not sure how I want to wear my hair.

Couple pics of my hair to end this session. I will continue with the next session as well. If it aint broke...

I'm almost at my goal of BSL (top of the purple shirt). I was at the six on the shirt at the end of April. I think BSL will be about 9, grazing the 10. Think I will be there in another month.

Collage of mini twists with braided roots that I installed on the 5th of this month. They took about 12 hours to complete with a few breaks in between.

Twisted up my hair for the new week. It actually looks longer than last week :yay: Put perm rods in the front since my front still doesn't quite hang nicely. Hopefully by the end of the summer my twists have a nicer hang to them.

Here's my update :) I think my hair is around 8 inches now. I did a little trim a couple days before this pic but I'm still pretty happy

Also does anyone want to start the next one? If not I can do it if y'all want

Here's my length check. Took the recent pic a few days ago.

Here's where I was when I started the challenge




Here's my recent length check. I did chop off about 2-3 inches all over after blowing it out. My ends needed it! But I look like I'm at the same place I was when I started. Oh well :ohwell:

Comparison pictures for the end of this leg of the challenge. I did one slight trim along the way, but overall I think I did okay in terms of length retention. On to the next one!
