My Edges and Nape – 2014 Recap

I cannot believe that it’s been over a year since I started this challenge. Time really flies. There’s been some ups and downs but I’m glad I did it. When I started this challenge, I really wanted to retain length on my edges and at my nape. I was discouraged because I wasn’t gaining any length.  There’s been progress! 🙂 Here’s what worked for me:

  • Consistency with deep conditioning
  • Protein layering
  • Low manipulation styles
  • No more scarves, only bonnets
I am finally retaining some length in the front of my hair. I was quite surprised. I think I kept about 3 – 4 inches in the front. I noticed it last month when I was using a larger roller for that section. My edges still need work but I’m finally seeing some signs of length retention. I have to kick some bad habits. I know what you want to see. PROGRESS PICS!! Without further ado, here they are . . .
My plan is to continue taking care of my hair and I joined some growth challenges this year. Hopefully, my hair will reach a new level this year.


Have you ever done a hair challenge? What were your results?
