I'm participating in a Protective Style Challenge that Beads, Braids and Beyond is having. At first I didn't think I would be able to do it but so far for the first week its going really good. Because of the texture of my daughter's hair I style it 3-4x a week. Styles usually do not last long. I wanted to participate so that I could give my daughter a break and style maybe just once or twice because I know she is tired of me touching her head! Lol
This is the style I did for the first week and it has held up nicely. It did get frizzy but it wasn't too bad. I had done another style before this for the challenge but took it out last minute because it wasn't holding up too well. So instead of Sunday, I did this style and submitted it on Tuesday (the last day). This was done on 3 day hair. I washed her hair Saturday night with Organix Shea butter shampoo and used Suave Shea and Almond conditioner. When she got out I used Shea Moisture Curl Milk on her hair for moisturizing. I used Bee Mine's Curly Hold Butter and Shea Moisture Curl Smoothie for braiding. I applied a mixture of shea butter, coconut oil, castor oil and vit e oil on her ends so that it wouldnt get too dry. I also spritzed a bit of Palmer's Olive Oil to her braids to refresh and applied the shea butter mix on her ends daily.
