6 month twist-out/twists/braid-out/braid challenge




I  cant take my WnGs anymore ,  as much as I love them  for some reason this year my hair is retaining more water. It seems a if my hair cant make up its mind whether to be low porosity or high porosity, It has characteristics of both.  It loves oils and emollients, the hair sank to the bottom ,however some product don’t absorb at all , my hair takes forever to dry , yet it gets wet really quick.  The majority of my hair is 4a and above each ear  is  strip of 4b, where product really doesn’t absorb it shrinks down more than anything and is also very fragile.
Texture
My hair really needs and thrives in protective styles but I don’t like to do them other than in the winter, however enough is enough. I need to have dry hair after styling the next day. If my hair isn’t dry my style looks a hot mess and quite frankly Im tired of it.




So my plan for the next 6 months is to maintain at some point twists, twist outs , braid outs, mini braids, kinky twists( extreme cold), and bantu knot outs. I use a henna/clay/Ayurvedic once a month, August I did a henna gloss, so September I will clay and October, Ayurvedic, etc. I’m using Deity of America Plant Poo as a shampoo. With my WnG, I was shampooing once a week and cowashing every three day, now that I’m switching my styling up. I will still shampoo once a week and co wash every three to four days depending on how my scalp is feeling/hair looks.
