My Four-month BSL Challenge Update
So while I’m mourning the loss of my niece’s length, my hair is on the serious grow. At the moment, I’m done putting energy into my niece’s nappy education, (I’ll pray that my sis doesn’t give into the lye, but like I said in my previous post, I think it’s just a matter of time) so from here on out, I’m going to focus soley on my own nappy journey. Lead by example cause somebody’s gotta represent the nap around here…right?!!!
That said, here’s my latest update!
The next time I check in, I’ll be posting starting pics of my upper layers. Sometime later this week, I’m, going to have my beautician dust my upper layers and trim my BSL layer to get rid of my ratty ends. Since I’m going for a specific shape, I can’t trust myself to trim my own hair any longer. My beautician did a good job last year when she shaped it up so I have to cross my fingers that she’ll do EXACTLY what I want again. I’ll keep letting her shape it periodically. At this point, I’m after thickness and fullness and I think keeping it trimmed as I continue to rid myself of layers will be the key to achieving this goal.
I also think I’ve found a protective style that doesn’t involve a head full of twists. On detangled, stretched hair it only takes about 10 minutes to do. Yep that’s right…only 10 minutes. I’ll try to get a pic of it sometime this week. I REALLY like it. Sure in the heck beats having to do a 5-hour styling marathon, I’ll tell ya. I having long hair!
Oh… I came back to give y’all something to drool over. Those of you with tightly coiled, no wave or curl definition nappy cNapp textured hair will really be able to appreciate a trip to these albums. My absolute favorite is Sera252. Take a look see at all of them and enjoy!
