10/4/11 - How Does It Look? Protective Style Challenge .-Update

Well last night I bought an additional pack of hair and finished my crown area of my Marley Braid Twists.  Once taking down the other updo it was a bit more of a challenge to put it back the same way.  So I had to switch it up a bit.

 I tell you, this style I twist and tucked both sides until I came to an area behind the ear.   I left some of that area untucked and twisted a few twists together to make a pin curl design on the side of this style.

Of course I used my swarovski crystal accessories to give a bit of elegance to the style as well.

I am getting a kind of good with the styling although it takes me between 20-30 minutes to manipulate to the point of satisfaction.

I am enjoying this protective style because all I did was use the GNatural Hair & Scalp Conditioner to oil and massage my scalp through out the twists.  Then spritzed my hair with SM Hold & Shine Mist that I added some Argan Oil and put my LOC SOC on my head and went to bed.  Updo's may not display length but it is really going to protect my ends.  Continuing to work on hair strength and moisture to get fabulously healthy hair.

I have received many compliments from young and old and I am feeling really proud of myself for having the patience and skill to do what others want to charge $180 or more.  My daughter wants me to possibly do hers this coming weekend but I tell you that child has some seriously dense hair so I will definitely be splitting the hair in half to lighten  the weight of each twist.

My hair will definitely stay in this style until I am ready to oil my scalp again.  All ends are tucked away and therefore unless my scalp gets dry or itchy I can even rinse my hair in this style.   Can't wait to see how long this style actually lasts me.

Have a great Thursday and let me know what you think.
