Fall/Winter Hair Challenge~ Protective Style: My Goddess Twists

Hello Natural Queens/Kings,
 
 This Fall and winter I will be  participating in a hair challenge from October 2012- April2013 ,that's 6months of 90% PROTECTIVE STYLING/ NO HEAT hair challenge . I encourage ladies who are trying to retain length  and  have healthy natural hair to join me. With in this 6months I want to retain 3 inches of hair growth. I  gave myself a fresh trim cut no more then 1/2inch off, before I installed my first protective style for this challenge. April 2013 will mark my 3year natural anniversary.So currently my average length of my hair is 8-9inches  my goal at end of this challenge in   April to  be at 11-12 inches.
My ultimate hair goal is grow my hair to 18-20inches Waist length Natural Hair.
 
Reason I trim because I wanted to make sure my ends are healthy and in good shape before committing 6months to retaining length .I don't want to do all this and have damaged or split ends.  I use to be happy scissor person through out the last 2 years of my natural hair journey. Since I barely use any extreme heat on my hair and I will trim only once to twice per year.The last trim I gave myself was in April 2012 and just recently October 2012.
 
How will this challenge help you retain length? This hair challenge will encourage you to retain length because you will be preserving a your ends, by wearing protective hair styles and putting to much stress on  your hair such as heat or extreme daily styling.
(Protective Hairstyle) This is a style that requires little manipulation, protects the ends of the hair by keeping them tucked away and allows regular moisturizing. Common protective styles are twists, coils, flat twists and cornrows.Definition source 
What are you protecting your hair from? Natural or Afro- textured  hair tends to have moisturize issues and very fragile. When you wear your natural hair out and have your ends exposed to the air, winds, sun, dry air can take a toll on your hair, Your hair can get tangled , form single strand knots or , dry out by the cold air or wind which leads to breakage and even heat damage from the sun. When you do a protective hairstyle usually this style is (low manipulative styles )which are styles that does  not require to much daily maintenance/styling or  to much wear and tear /damage or breakage.
So I will be posting video update on my youtube channel ,facebook  and of course on my blog about style, care  and details on every protective style I wear in course of these next 6months.
 
See your  hair always is growing you just have to retain your length and preserve the ends of your hair to see it.

Each moment seems to get better

Time flys it has almost been a month since my last blog post. Lots things have and are taking place in my life. It has been quit a adventure so many changes has and are taking place.

I found out some news that took a negative toll on my emotions about my last relationship, I ask God to give me the wisdom and strength I need to endure and process those emotions. Spiritually evolving each moment in time/space and I can only thank the Creator for it all.

 
Beside that I have truly been enjoying life and all it has to offer so far. I started work 2weeks ago at a really nice Natural Hair salon downtown Baltimore,MD. It's been a great enjoyable experience thus far. I have been going to a lot social events,poetry events, hanging with family and friends and made few new friends :-) So catch my followers up on my social life and stuff here are few photos :-)
