Back in Feb, my friend Tanielle and I decided to embark on the “1 year protective style journey”. We’d been thinking about doing it since last year but never really got around to it. Thankfully, we got the chance to align our schedules and film a video for her channel which speaks on our individual natural hair journey’s thus far, our reasons for trying out the challenge, as well as what our goals are going forward and how we plan to achieve them. Above all that, we also discuss where our faith fits into this journey.
Ofcourse, I can’t type out what was discussed, you’ll have to head on over to Tanielle’s channel and watch the video to find out. Otherwise we’ll be here forever. What I can say though is this: our journeys are very similar, but different at the same time, and our hair goals can be expressed the same way.
So, February 15th marked the day we officially started with this protective style journey. I can definitely say that for myself, I’m slowly realising certain daily habits I have that are negatively affecting my hair in the long run. However it’s still a mission to implement the new habits I know I need to adopt.
We’ll be having our first quarterly review on the journey thus far some time in May, to track our progress and share on lessons learnt during this time. After that, every third month will be “Review Month” for us. In the meantime, here is where we started in terms of length. Let me warn you though, we’re pulling funny faces for the most part because there’s no way to make tiredness look pretty, haha.
If you have any questions concerning this challenge we’re doing, comment down below, or alternatively you can contact me here.
Enough about us. Let’s hear about you.
Do yo have any goals for your hair this year? (whether natural or relaxed)
How do you plan on achieving those hair goals?
Lastly, what have you done so far to bring you a step or two closer to your goal?
I really look forward to hearing from you, and reading your responses!
Grace & Peace to you & yours
