PYE Weeks 10 & 11: Yucky Scalp; One Month Since My Last Wash



For the 4 Weeks, I've been on travel non-stop; I have been neglectful in posting my updates for the challenge. Though I have been a full participant, wearing only protective styles and taken pictures to show the style, I haven't been updating like I should have.

For weeks 10 and 11, I wore my hair in…

Week 5- Check in : Twists and Bun pt 2

I started the week doing a deep condition with twists in. This was my first time trying this and it was a total success. It is so easy to condition and  rinse with twists in. Also, wetting my hair and then putting it in a satin scarf, eliminated the frizz.  It was a great fresh start for my hair without taking the twist down. That night I put my twists in  two buns. And for the rest of the week I continued bunning.

Not sure what I am doing this week, I just  did a wash day. So I will…

I've been rocking the bun all week with slightly different variations and I haven't really been bored yet because I'm still trying to find the right products to make me truly when I finish. Here is a pics (when I remembered to take them throughout the week.

I found this  youtube on four easy bun styles and I experiement with these through out week, just to have something new to try…

Protect Ya Ends Weekly Recap

So I did a bun because it is something that I can do and be relatively satisfied with. My biggest goals while doing this challenge will be to find another style that looks neat and put together that I can also accomplish in a relatively short amount of time. I added a flower but I…
