For my upcoming stretch I have picked an odd number of 19 weeks because that will be me at 1 year! I do not want to have another relaxer in 2013. From my last stretch I know my optimum stretching time is 12 weeks, because I am a DIY relaxer, any more than 12 weeks I will find it difficult to take my new growth. ( I know I contradict my self with the hopes of 19 week stretch, planning on getting help with that touch up)
My reason for stretching for 19 weeks has been made acceptable by me because I will be using permanent protective styles. I am planning on getting box braids done when I am in Malawi for my brother’s wedding (amazing box braid for £5 I think so!)
So I have been doing some research around taking care of more permanent protective styles.
Another thought I had was I really haven’t had to take care of my hair during winter and boy am I scared, does everyone adopt a winter regimen or does the one we use for summer suffice? Am guessing the M&S will have been be on steroids?
What do you do differently in winter?
Happy Hair Journey’s Ladies! :-)
