I am a seasoned protective styler was just never good at length retention before, so this challenge has been a breeze so far. In case you are wondering the 1st check in took place via a comment on Ebony’s blog. I had Tree braids installed for the first month of the challenge took those down at the end of January, the 31st to be exact. I wore different variations of rope braids for the entire month of February into a few days of March to give my hairline a break, I would keep them in for up to a week do the appropriate wash routine for that week and rebraid for another week. I sometimes wore my hair in a braidout on taking down my rope braids for a few hours before rebraiding never more than eight though; the hair was pinned up as soon as I got home and I still have four hair down days left using the hourly calculations. Also used these wash days to test out new products. I currently have single braids installed which I plan to keep until the challenge is over.
