    so it's really heating up, and summer is FINALLY on its way!
    i know most people on here are ready to untwist, unbraid, and unbun, ready to release those naps that have been in hiding for most of the winter. :wub:
    well, i'm not, because i can't.
    i usually wear my hair out in the cold and tucked away in the summer because i swim a lot, i'm in cross country training, and i'm a summer camp counselor at my church's camp program. i have so much stuff going on during the warm months that i can't be bothered with my hair.
    so, i was wondering if anyone wanted to join me on this short challenge.
    here are the guidelines/rules:

    GOAL: To keep your hair tucked away for the summer
    TIMELINE FOR BLITZ: June 2, 2008-September 2, 2008
    </span>

    DIFFERENT TYPES OF CHALLENGERS: (i&#39;m organizing y&#39;all like i separate the kids at camp)
    Green Group: Wear different protective style every week, with hair out on weekends
    Red Group: Wear a protective style for two weeks, with hair out on the weekend of the second week
    Silver Group:Wear monthly protective styles, with hair out on last weekend of the month
    <span style="color:#FFCC00">Gold Group
    : Wear one protective style for the entire challenge

    Choose your group, state your starting length, products you use, etc.
    Remember, you&#39;re not really tied to that group, i just want to get a general feel as to what kind of challengers we have in here. As motivation for protective styling, i was also wondering if someone could find a link to some page that has like 101 Protective Styling Ideas. i once saw this in someone&#39;s album, and it was awesome, could someone look into that??
    thanks guys! it&#39;ll be fun!

    Hey Raq, since I&#39;m still in the stage of growing out my TWA. I&#39;m definitely in the green group, sometimes red, if my scalp doesn&#39;t itch to death!

    I&#39;m in with ya!!!

    Starting in the gold group with small twists as my style of choice.

    My starting length is 5 1/2 in for the very 1/2 in layer in the back of my head, 6 3/4 in everywhere else except for the sides above my ear which comes in at 6 1/2 in. I&#39;m experimenting with my routine but my staple products of yogurt and shealoe will remain the same.

    I never join challenges, but I might as well join this one just to say I did. I will be in the gold group. I have already finished putting my senegalese twists in and will be keeping them in the whole summer. I usually cannot stand to go over a month without changing braids but that will be the challenge for me. I plan on spritzing everyday, co-washing every other day and doing a shampoo rinse once a week.

    PC, I&#39;ve always wondered about co-washing every other day-it sounds like something that feels really good, but i&#39;m worried about the frizzies. i&#39;m thinking that if your twists are with extensions, it won&#39;t be a problem. however, what do you think about co-washing every other day with twists that haven&#39;t had any hair added?

    anyone else?? come on, people, you know you want to!!

    I&#39;ll try this. I think I think I&#39;ll pick the red group cause my styles tend not to last that long.

    I&#39;m definitely in. Silver group for me, though I can&#39;t stand having my hair out for no longer than a few hours before I get the urge to put it in a protective style.

    I&#39;ll be wearing braids with beads, with cornrows in the front. I don&#39;t know, maybe after I&#39;ve had this in for a few months, I&#39;ll change it to a full head of braids with beads.

    Current length? Last time I checked (Which was early last month), it was 4.5 inches in the front, over 5 inches in the middle and sides, and 4 inches in the back.

    I keep it simple when it comes to my hair. Before I style it, I shampoo and condition with Tresemme products, spray with Royal Roots Daily Moisturizing Spray, add a quarter sized amount of Moeshealoe, and then style with either Royal Roots holding creme or Aloe Vera Gel. For daily maintenance, I spray an oil-based spray after showers to keep my hair moisturized.
