Do you remember my friend Shack's and her post about vitamins? She is a long term transitioner and a specialist es protective styles! Last month, as we were sharing tips about our hair, we figured out that it would be fun to create our own challenge for the new year!
Here is the deal:
objectives: retain length / have healthier hair
what we gonna do: work on the outside AND the inside!
vitamins & complements : I chose brewers yeast (described as type 3, B-complex in Shack’s’ article)
vegetables : I eat lettuce at least once a day (any vegetable would fit)
fruits : at least 2 kiwis a day and tomatoes (any fruit would fit)
water : a liter and a half (around half a gallon) each day
Massage your scalp at least once a week
Deep condition once a week
hydrate twice a day
Seal twice a day
protective style at least 4 times a week. It can be buns, updos (the hair should not touch your shoulders or clothes) or it could be a more permanent protective style.
protective style : satin bonnet/ scarf / pillowcase at least four times a week
-A report once a week on this blog
-A length check each month (next one the 17th of February)
-Our challenge begun on the 17th of January and it ends on the 17 of April.
The good news is that Anybody can join!!! (Any type of hair, any length… All you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org , post a message to my Facebook wall (Kyara Emienthe - add me putting challenge in the message) or add a comment below before the 17th of February. The message must contain a length check at the beginning of the challenge, a pic would be nice but it’s not mandatory and a short line concerning the state of our hair).
If you decide to join the challenge, I’d appreciate a comment on each of my weekly updates to tell us what’s going good and what’s going wrong for you, so that we can share tips!
Let’s do this challenge together!!!
