Sometimes protective styles are just that... Protecting me from doing something like: Cutting, Locing, Spending lots of Money but never Perming.
Sorry for the Blurred pics but I am using a Pantech Go phone until my Upgrade date of 4/4/12 when I will purchase my first Iphone.
I did this style starting at 11:30pm last night just so that I would not have to do my hair for quite a few days. It is a combination of braids and twists. I like doing cornrows around the hairline because it secures the hair and makes it less prone to breakage. Yes I do tend to get every piece of hair but I donot put alot of tension on the hairline but just make sure it is included in the cornrow. This actually helps my hairline to flourish. Wearing my hairline lose tends to make it more prone to breakage due to sweating and when tying my hair down.
Well for I was thinking of all these things yesterday as I had my hair in a pony puff. I had worn my hair in a twist and curl but with this warmer weather and percipitation that style did not last without a retwist which is just so much work at times. So I did what I normally do. Protective Style.
|Twists look nice and plump|
This style was done on dry stretched hair just using KBB Creamylicious and a tad bit of GNatural Hair and Scalp Conditioner.
Although I donot feel that I am retaining the length that I should I continue to protective style and have begun to utilize good deep conditioners and protein treatments with Shea Moisture Black Soap Hair Masque and Curl Junkie Repair Me. I know that a bit of my medications may be hendering my progress but hey at least I am not BALD. I just want healthy hair... don't care about the length. I would like to continue to increase the density and also reduce shedding and breakage.
I may have to really concentrate on moisture and begin to really utilize my aloe based products to increase the moisture and keep the follicles smooth and closed. The crown of my hair felt extra dry as I was styling so therefore I will definitely be concentrating on that area. My diet and water intake has been bad as well so I will increase the diligence of diet, excerise and water intake.
I will let you guys know of my progress. I am trying to get better with my postings but with Blurred pics... this is definitely not as fun. Come on April 4th!
