Here are the rules of the challenge.
1. Wear protective styles 90% of the time
Protective styles are those that keep your ends hidden. These include buns, cornrows, braids, weaves e.t.c keeping your ends hidden will keep them from getting damaged and will encourage length retention.
2. Wear low manipulation hairstyles 10% of the time.
Low manipulation hairstyles do not keep your ends protected but do not need to be combed out. These styles can easily be turned into protective styles. Examples of these are braid outs, perm rod sets, straw sets, bantu knots out, twist outs e.t.c
3. Deep condition every week or at least once every two weeks
4. Moisturise and seal your hair on regular basis.
5. Baggy your hair or just your ends
whenever your hair or ends feel too dry.
Baggying is simply applying a plastic bag on your head after moisturising to retain moisture.
6. Keep your hair covered with a satin or silk scarf at night while sleeping.
7. One heat pass for the entire three months. Use it wisely ladies! Rollersetting and steaming are allowed
