How to Achieve Fuller, Longer Hair

psc2017-copy1

Hi Guys,

Every year, I host a protective style challenge, encouraging many to join in order to attain some MIND blowing growth. I am launching the PSC 2017 this December, so you have less than a week to make up your mind and do this! Why a challenge? Glad you asked.

Typically, it is best to join a group of like-minded individuals to keep you motivated. You are who you associate yourself with. This allows us to support one another and retain as much length as possible. I personally like having the slight pressure to keep up with the challenge. Otherwise, I know I would fall off the wagon so quickly, I wouldn’t realize I got on it in the first place. Longer, fully hair starts now! Not on January 1st !

Before we start the challenge, I highly encourage you to prep your hair. This includes getting a hair cut, getting rid of split ends, doing a protein treatment etc. We want our hair in tip top shape even before we start to protective style.

The rules

1. Eat a balanced diet

2. Drink lots of water

3. Take a hair vitamins- Optional

4. Choose from the following options:

 Long term protective styles that last about 4-6 weeks OR Low manipulative hair styles.

(if you feel the need, you can give your hair a break from the long term styles by doing low manipulative styles throughout the challenge. In order words, you can go back and forth between the two options)

5. Wash your hair at least 2x a month

6. Deep condition at least once a month. You don’t have to deep condition WHILE you have a protective style in but be sure to do it when you take it down.

7. Moisturize your hair and scalp (Oiling your scalp is optional)

8. Finger detangle (or be very gentle when using a comb)

9. Leave your hair alone (no heat styling, tight braids etc…)

10. Take before and after pictures. I will have a little something something for the best growth/ most participation 🙂

 

As always, thanks for the support and let’s get this done! It is time to stop making excuses and really put in the work to get what you want – no matter what your goals are.

..xo

  1. Hair Steamer: I love that you have these protective style challenges, and I couldn’t wait for the next one. This is going to be great for me because I plan on making a big move and I can keep my hair braided away so I won’t have to worry about it to much.

  2. Hoping this challenge is going to keep me accountable lol. I wear protective styles a lot just because my hair and I are in a constant battle. Which I know is my fault because I don’t stay on top of moisturizing it when I have in braids or kinky twist so I’m hoping to improve on that. Also love your make up for this post and the video you just released.

  15. I’m definitely participating in this! I missed the last one. But I know the hardest for me will be the diet and water drinking lol. But I will do my best! I just took my hair out from one month of twists but I think I’m going to try and do a wig as well, it’s been too long since I’ve done that. And your wig looks so good on you btw! 🙂
