3in6: Prep Week #1

PREP WEEK #1: December 4-10.  To join the challenge, see this post.

Use this week to get a fresh trim or cut.  The following reasons are why:

  1. The goal of the challenge is to retain length, and there is no better way to do it than with healthy ends from the start.
  2. Trimming or cutting throughout the challenge is a no-no.  It will defeat the purpose of retaining length.

How should one trim/cut her hair?  It depends on your preference.  A trim can be done on dry or wet hair, and straight or coily hair.  I prefer to trim in twists.

Loo, I'm already prepped for the challenge (since the setback I received a few weeks back in the form of a bad hair cut). My hair was way several inches past collarbone last year, thanks to the challenge. It grew several inches and kept up the challenge after). Unfortunately, all my progress was cut away, and my hair barely reaches my shoulders. I've got my hair up in twists and have been putting coconut oil (per your advice) for protection and strengthening.

Thanks for your advice and being so generous to readers like me.
