Longing4Length Protective Style Challenge Sign-Up
I’ve been waiting for the official sign-up post of Longing4Length -Ebony’s Protective Style challenge and it’s finally up! Even though I had the intention of keeping my braids a little longer, at least, for half of the challenge period, I changed my mind and took them down.
I prefer to wear my own hair at this time so I can deal with the dust with frequent washing. The route to my work place is a typical example of a dusty road and I wouldn’t want to have “sand” in my hair. I would be wearing my hair up with the ends tucked away; bunning with clips, head bands, scarfs and pins. I have been wearing my hair up since Sunday so unofficially, I’d started the challenge.lol
Since only 7 days are allocated to wearing the hair down, I will also air dry in a bun unless I want to wear it out, which might be twice this month (may be two Sundays). I don’t want to give the harmattan winds the opportunity to blow my hair in all directions whilst working.lol
I’ll be co-washing more as well as deep conditioning with the instant deep conditioners in order to combat dryness.
Additionally, I will keep my hair off my shoulders and ends tucked away till bed time when at home.
