Keep It Simple, Baby!!

OK, I will admit. I am totally paranoid about winter breakage and damage especially living in the harsh New Hampshire winter environment. The high winds on some days don't help either. I've had slow but great progress thus far with my hair and I want to keep it that way. Protective styling is the way to go and low manipulation. Sunday, after deep conditioning I put my hair in several two strand twists and during the week I sleep with my silk scarf and pillow case with the strands in. I pin my hair up during the day for protective styling. I plan to deep condition twice a week and co-wash twice a week as well and restyling once a week. I plan to keep using my conditioner, oil, and water mix as a leave in and to add moisture. I will keep my vitamin regimen and my exercising at 5 days a week. I plan to do this "Keeping it simple" technique for the entire month of January and see how well my hair grows.

P.S: These pics were taken after being at work since 0430 and an hour and a half workout. Not bad, eh?
