    Default Waist Length Challenge, Pt. 3

    Hi ladies! AI, sorry about your setback, I know u will find what works for retention. Im wearing a stretched wash n go. It takes my hair so long to dry, even in the summer. So im going to start blow drying on cool. I wonder if hooded dryers have a cool setting? I decided that i dont want my hair past waist length, its so thick. So if i make it at the end of this year, that is where im keeping it cut at. I used III sisters spiral pudding paired with a little Curls Goddess Curls gel. It dried clear, no flake or crunch.

    ^Yay! Nice, your buns are always LAYED lol. When i get tired of wash n go imma twist my hair up. That roll n tuck style looks elegant. Here's a pic of my current WNG after GA humidity set in but i still like the shrinkage and I wrapped and twisted my hair a couple weeks ago.

    Ooh, nice pics, NIAN and Olahh! I don't have any decent update pics, but I will take some soon! I really want to try a real wash 'n go - Olahh, your picture made me REALLY want to try it soon. I'll let y'all know if I do it this weekend like I hope to.

    And Olahh - I've been second guessing my desire for longer than waist length, too. The thickness is just so overwhelming sometimes. I'm just playing it by ear now, though. We'll see how long it gets before I can't take it anymore.

    So who's bright idea was it for me to put twists in my hair and then cowash them like every other day??? Last night I went to detangle one of them and it was just mattttttttttt city. Yes it was just that bad. Then today I had the audacity to just pack on conditioner and bun them. sigh. LOL I will be taking them out this weekend and doing a protein treatment and then a length check. Say a prayer for me for patience.

    So it took me up until yesterday to take them twists out because I was working on finals for my summer class but I'm just wearing a puff today I hope to post pics by Friday of my length check. I will never put twists in again and cowash them about 10 times.. I think 4 washes is the max lol
