In my last post, I mentioned that I would do a 6-month protective style challenge. At the time, I installed a set of dark brown, braid extensions, which I wore through November and December. Those braids were then taken down, and I wore my real hair in flat twists for about week. (At some point during that week, I decided to color my hair black for the winter. Summer was loooong over as well as my intrigue with my highlights.) Then, with January here, I trimmed my hair and installed a second set of braid extensions -- this time, black. I'm officially in my third month of this 6-month challenge.
|Hair before color.|
|Color in "natural blue black". |
(There are better dyes out there; i just picked this because it was only $2.99.)
|Rinsed and now conditioning.|
|Tailbone length braid extensions.|
|Aiming to keep this in through the end of March.|
