The Good Hair Blog – Protective Style Challenge

August 1 – November 1
I do not do well with protective styling and as such have decided to challenge myself by participating in Alex’s Protective Style Challenge.  These are my first pics to get things started. Simple bun to get me through the week.  Timing couldn’t be more perfect because as you know, I am leaving for Hawaii on August 6th!  I will be doing some sort of protective style on Friday night before I leave for my trip.
·    Shampoo frequency
The duration of my style will determine the frequency of my shampooing
(Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa)
·    Updates once per month via my blog with a link to Alex’s blog
·    Weekly Deep Conditioning (Jessi Curl Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment)
·    Monthly Protein Conditioning (Aubrey Organics Glycogen Protein Balancing Conditioner)
·    I do NOT have a length goal, just to grow grow grow – as always

Check out her site for more details.  Wish me luck PLEASE!  It’s not that I don’t like protective styling, I am just not good at coming up with looks that compliment my face.  L

P.S.  Throwback post!  I did a feature on Alex awhile back.

I recently wore a protective style not even knowing, I washed my hair and twisted had to make a run to the farmers market, therefore pinned it up using bobby pins because I didn't want to be looking too crazy lol . I received all kinds of compliments about the style, so now its 'my style" lol easy to maintain and cute!

Hey Miss Nista! That is too funny! Isn't that how it goes though, something you throw together is always a hit! I can't wait to see what I come up with! LOL

Thanks so much Melissa! I'm looking forward to it. Plenty of pics to share when I return.
