Low manipulation styling for January 2014

Hello. My goal for January is to hide my hair. After trying to hide my hair for the first couple of days of the new year, I started experiencing extremely dry hair and began experiencing breakage. This is where I am so lost at. I can never get my hair at the state where is it well moisturized without going overboard. In addition, I experience sudden-snapping hairs on a regular basis. Enough about my problems, I decided to do low manipulation styles until February. I asked my cousin to braid my hair into a Mohawk style with a single braid going up my head. I rolled my leave out, and this is the style I believe that I am rocking for the entire month of January. 
I think she did a great job braiding my hair. It took about thirty minutes. I believe that after two weeks, I will get her to rebraid me up so I can end January on a good note. I am trying to do low manipulation styles, hide my hair, use castor oil regularly and avoid flatironing possibly until my next relaxer because I am trying to grow out the side of my hair that is quite thin compared to the other side. I am currently 2 days shy of 7 weeks. My NG isn't that plentiful. It's more annoying than anything. It's very dry. I am working on handling this issue and soon. Well, until next time!!!

  1. Wow I am loving that style. I can relate when it comes to moisturizing and the snapping of hair. I am so heavy handed with the oil but I still dealing breakage but I'm on a no heat challenge for awhile and I'm going to replace my filter and start eating much healthy. Wear my two braids during the week and on Sunday a braid out which will now be my new wash day. And take it from therr
