Hey everyone! I hope that this post finds you all in good health and doing well. Sybil is finally starting to grow up so I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting with my hair lately. Some have been fabulous and other…not so pretty! LOL I’ve been participating in Kinky Curly Coily Me Castor oil hair change. We are in week 7 and my hair has grown a lot! Check out the pics from our week 5 check in:

With Winter on the way, I wanted to also try and find a cute protective style since I can’t very well do wash-n-gos when it’s freezing outside. One of my good friends cornrowed the sides and back for me and then I played around with it for a while trying to figure out what in the heck I wanted to do with the top.
|Me channeling my inner Janelle Monae – LOL|
Both of my daughters loved my hair sticking up in a faux hawk, but I just wasn’t quite feeling it. HAHA
So I settled for a twist out and love how it came out.
What’s your favorite protective style? What do you do when you get into a styling rut? Feel free to share your ideas!
I'm so jelly of your braids. Great style!

Thanks Jocelyn! Now of course I needed help with these since I have no skills when it comes to cornrows…LOL
Don't know much about protective styling… I currently weave it. I did see that caster oil challenge and thought about trying it too but I just dont do well with my natural hair. Its too fine…. I like your twists in the front!
Hey…well your weave is a protective style. So there you go! Thanks and twists and flat twist are about the only styles that I've mastered. LOL
Well then…. I learned something new! ~wink wink~

It is so cute and your braids are so neat.
Thanks Tiki! My friend hooked me up. I'm planning to do a lot of braids and flat twists this Fall/Winter.
I'm with your daughters going for the faux hawk! 😛
I do like the way it ended up though!

Thanks Traci! I may try that for Halloween and walk around with it standing straight up…LOL
