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…

P.Y.E Week 9: The Big Chop Heebie Jeebies!

It’s week 9 of the challenge and I’m still on travel so I’m still rocking my bun…I love it though!It’s full and big and easy; certainly not a style I have to sleep pretty to maintain. Tomorrow I plan to re-moisturize, seal and braid up my hair.  I am really excited about the end of the challenge. Normally, I wear my…

P.Y.E Week 8

This week, I continued to wear my hair in the "Crown & Glory" style  

We are two months into the challenge. Up to this point, I have:

  • Consistently worn protective styles
  • Used one of two freebies to wear my hair in a non-protective style
  • Retained length 
  • Discovered my fine hair can not tolerate elastic headbands that…

The 2012 BGLH "Protect Ya Ends" Challenge: Week 5

It's Week 5 and I am feeling!!!! Excuse my corny rhymes but there is a lot of truth in that statement. This week I am feeling happier and more positive about my natural hair in terms of protective styling. Because I am newly natural I have nver really dealt with protective styles outside of wigs and weaves and even then I wasn't doing it for protection, but out of convenience and sometimes laziness. The little girl and I DC, shampooed and did a leave in…

The 2012 BGLH "Protect Ya Ends" Challenge: Week 3

Okay, Week 3 brings something new to see. I'm finally making some styling changes this week. Baby's braids are out and my wigs is off. So I thought. I decided to experiement a little. A few months back I RAN to target to purchase the Curls "Fierce, Fabulous & Finally Free Transitioning Kit!" And at that time I was still transitioning and not feeling fierce or fab or free after using the products. However this was also the point in my transition when I begining to get frustrated with the…

The 2012 BGLH "Protect Ya Ends" Challenge: Week 2

The hecticity (I know that is not a word- sue me) of the holiday season is now over I am back on schedule. No late post this week.

I guess I can start with Baby (and yes I know she is 6 years old but she is still MY baby-lol) Because I had her hair braided last week, her styling will has changed. I like to keep her hair braid for at least 2 weeks when it is cornrowed. However because she has dry skin (ezcema) her scalp does need cleaning as well as moisture needs to be adeed to the…

THE Rules: "Protect Ya Ends" Hair Challenge

I think I'd better have up the rules for my sake BECAUSE I will forget them, espeically since I'm a sorta wash and go girl. And worse considering that I'm a twist outs chick, so this will require discipline AND REMINDERS, lol. So, for my sake (and maybe yours), *drumroll* THE RULES!!! (direct from the official thread)


  • Challenge will run from January 1, 2012 to March 31, 2012
  • Hair must be styled in a way that…
