Style your hair with this, wash with that, part before co wash, seal with this, wear that protective styling, do this for fast growth bla bla bla bla bla bla. We have read them all.

 So really whats the point of me writing about hair now?
When it comes to mistreating hair, I have done it all. I recall  having dreadlocks for about a month or two then getting rid of them because they didn't grow long fast enough. One day I got fed up and decided to go all in on the protective styling. I boarded the train and never came off till recently. 

The idea of sharing my hair journey with you appealed to me mostly because it gives me a sense of responsibility to my hair. I am not a length fanatic rather, I am looking to grow a really healthy voluminous twa. 

I think the most important  Natural hair rules are; 

1. Treat it right - There is no magic serum to volume and length, you have to treat your hair right from the inside out. 
2. Its never that serious - not every suggestion or rule will work for everyone. Don't follow one regimen religiously because your hair icon gave a promise it would work. Experiment and build a regimen that works for you by trial and error.

Hair Plan 2016



1. Braids.
This is possibly the most painful protective hairstyle to install. I avoid braids as much as I can because it makes my scalp itch. Usually I braid and undo them in about a two weeks or less which is honestly a waste of time and resources. For this reason I decided to put off braiding this year. However, if you have any ideas on how to maintain braids and get rid of the itch do share in the comment section below.

2. Weaves and Crotchet
Aaah! This is by far my favorite protective styling technique. Despite my hair being braided beneath the wave the itch is usually more bearable. The other day I installed a weave and three hours later, took it off. It was a really painful process and my hair hated me for it. I could tell from all the splitting and shedding. But really after three months of wearing my TWA the weave made me feel and look too different.
I also don't like the fact that I have to leave out a section of my hair for the wave to have a great finish. so it is going to be a while before I install a weave again.

3. Wigs. 
I shift in my seat at the though of my wig falling of in public. but I think it is a very convenient protective styling technique. You have easy access to your hair at all times and it doesn't require much maintenance in my opinion. correct me if I'm wrong. Its about time I invested in some good ones. 

Bottom line. 
protective styling is great, and every once in a while I will have to pick one and give my TWA a break but for the better part of the year, I will stick to my beautiful TWA

Whats your hair plan this year...?
