I'm In the L4L Protective Styling Challenge

L4L protective styling challenge

After a bit of consideration I have decided to go ahead and join Ebony C Princess's L4L Protective Styling Challenge.  My fear was that I've just started my HHJ and am a newbie at this.  I have no idea what I am going to do to my hair and have no protective styling ideas, AND I'm still not the biggest fan of protective styling.  However, now is a better time than any to start protecting my hair not only because of the harsh cold winter elements, etc. etc., but also because I am a newbie and I just need to be doing this! Ha!

Here's how to enter:
(1) Post your starting photo for the challenge on your blog and link on the first post of the challenge (which will be titled sign-up).
(2)  Have either the L4L Button (found at the bottom of this site) and/or the official Protective Styling Badge posted to your blog.
(3) Update monthly on your blog and link up here on the official update posts.
(4) Post a final length/progress comparison to your blog at the conclusion of the challenge and link up here on L4L within a week of the end of the challenge.

My most recent wash day was on Thursday.  I am at about 6 weeks post.  I blow dried my hair on a cooler temp setting and tried my best to get my roots as straight as possible to take my starting pic. Blow drying took FOREVER. lol.  I used my length check tee that I purchased from to mark my starting point.  It may not be very accurate as my roots are not 100% straight.  I also know I'll be needing a trim at my next touch up so I hope this doesn't set me back some in the challenge.  Anywho, here's my starting photo.

Here's what I was working with as far as my roots.  There is some new growth and some tex-laxed going on here. My hair is still damp in this photo.  I'm not quite sure where the texlaxed texture starts. I'm guessing maybe a half inch or so of new growth. No idea....

I'm kind of excited about this challenge.  I thinks it's going to be a lot of fun and I'm really interested to see what kind of styles I can come up with.  I'm going to try and force myself to be a little more creative. Here goes nothing!

Is anyone else doing the L4L Protective Styling Challenge?



Thoughts and suggestions are welcome. :)
