Twists!! & Adding Another Challenge! - No Heat Till 2013

So I took down my braids that I had under my lace wig that I have been wearing for the past month or so. I slathered my hair with oil and a little suave conditioner, detangled, and put on a plastic cap and a scarf and sat under the dryer to give it a little heat for a good half hour. I essentially gave it a hot oil treatment.

I then rinsed a few hours later and began a set of small twists. Here are  few pics



In this pic it looks way too thin.  Could have made the parts smaller... :P


The back likes to shrink up a lot. ;)


Last time I straightened my hair with the BKT I did a nice trim and now even though my  hair has been braided up for almost 2 months I have clear signs of breakage.

Because of the breakage, I have decided to go full force and forget about flat ironing for length checks for the rest of the year as well as any BKT/Protein treatments. I have done 2 so far this year, basically every 3 months. I know my hair can not handle heat too often and every time I straighten I tend to lose a good half an inch to an inch no matter what I do.

My goal is to get back the length I had before (MBL) and any breakage I can not tolerate. So now I am going to focus on moisturizing and protecting my hair even more.

My hair does best with daily cowashing and deep conditioning 2x a week. I am going to have to come up with a good steady regimen for the rest of the year.


I'll post the regimen in the next post.
