Longing4Length's Protective Styling Challenge (ENTRY POST)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Today is the 2nd day of the new year and I hope everyone is doing well and is in great health. I am so excited because it is 5 days until Longing4Length's Protective Styling Challenge !!! This challenge is under my mini goals to complete this challenge, because I can be so lazy at times. I want to prove to myself that I can complete tasks and such. So, this is more than just a protective styling challenge. This is the opportunity for me to quick laziness and self doubt to the curb! I am ready!!! This is my starting pic-slash-post. I have been Full SL and borderline APL for too long. I am trying to get some ridiculous length this year. I am not cutting any corners or taking any short cuts. Another reason why this challenge is such a huge challenge to me is because I am so ANTI-BUNNING. I do not believe that buns flatter me. With my large forehead and lack of bun styles, I tend to look boring and homely. Even though I know the benefits of bunning, it is like I still refuse to do any. Well, that is going to have to change if I want to be in this challenge.

Without further blah, blah, blah, here is my starting photo:

This photo is of my airdired hair. I am not quite APL, but I am hoping that the Protective Styling Challenge will help me tremendously.
So, here is my post and my starting pic. Only five more days and I will bunning up a storm!!! Good luck to everyone!!!!! Happy Growing and Happy New Year!!!


  1. You just gave me an idea! Thanks for joining, your hair has grown quite a bit since I last saw it and it DOES look APL to me!

  2. Well, I am glad to be of some kind of help, even if I do not know what it is. Thanks for the compliment. I am afraid that I have such short pieces that I am going to have to cut all of my progress from your challenges. :-( fingers are crossed that I do not have to!!!

  3. Hi Alexis. I am in the same boat as you. I wanted to join this challenge when I saw her post, but I look so boring with buns and I'm not very creative in the protective styling department. You have given me more motivation. Thanks girl. I'll be adding you to my blog list. I'm at if you want to check out my blog. :)
    This will be fun!
