Ending the Protective Style Challenge the Way It Began

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.
Wigged it in February.
March brought on finger coils, twist outs and another wig.
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.

December 2011 braids

April/May 2012 braids

Thinking about keeping these in for the next 2-3 weeks.

Until next time……

    I like the braids! They really suit you well! How long did they take to finish?

    Thanks Curlilocks! It take about 5 1/2 – 6 hours to complete. Watching movies helped the time past by.
