Back in December I challenged myself to stay in protective styles until May 2012. Good thing it was a challenge and not a commitment because it is hard for me to stay in protective styling constantly.
At the start of the challenge the protective style of choice were box braids.
January was flat and two strand twists.
Wigged it in February.
The warm weather we received early Spring was unexpected. Since the weather was so nice my hair was begging to be free and loose so this month I let it. Now that the temps returned to normal, I’m back on track and ending this challenge the way it began with box braids.
