One Year Twist and Braid Challenge

BekkaPooBekkaPoo Posts: 3,861Registered Users
Ok, by request, the One Year Twist/Braid Grow-Out Challenge. Ladies start your engines.

:wav:

So to grow out as much healthy hair as possible anyone who wants to can join in this challenge. Keep your hair in twists or braids and of course post pictures of your styles and give updates on your regimens. I'll definitely be watching the thread to keep up on everyone's progress.

Start Date: 4/1/2010
End Date: 4/1/2011

There are no other "rules" but to keep your hair in a twisted or braided style.. other than that, frequency of conditioning, washing, detangling, etc. is strictly up to you.

Okay so who's in?
"The challenge is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everybody else."
"...rationality is not necessary to sell things.."
My staples: Mane n Tail (cowash), Garnier Fructis Sleek n Shine (leave in condish), Grapeseed oil or shea butter (sealing), Organic Root Stimulator Elasticitea (leave-in condish & light hold)

    ooh this sounds fun! I'd love to give this a try... I LOVE all the twists and braids styles, but I'm not sure; 1) my hair is long enough or 2) has a strong enough curl pattern to hold them in. I've heard you can use hair elastics bands soaked in olive oil to hold the ends - this might work.

    Also are you allowed to use extensions in twists etc. I would love to try this, but I am not sure where to get the synthetic hair and if it'll come in a colour that looks somewhat similar to mine.

    what do you think?

    Ooh! I'm in. I've basically been doing this for the past 3 months anyway. Right now my hair is in kinky twists. I just put them in on Sunday 3.21.10. Here's what they look like:

    IMG01077-vi.jpg

    IMG01096-vi.jpg?1269233835

    After I take these out in a month or two I'll continue with my own hair which was this long before the kinky twists:

    IMG00964-vi.jpg

    Yay! I'm excited! This is my first real challenge on nc.com. Hooray! :toothy4:

    All the particulars are up to you, dear.. If you want to put in extensions to get twists go for it! :glasses7: I just saw the movie "Human Traffic" with an actress called Lorraine Pilkington who had the most gorgeous angelic blonde curls.. maybe you could attempt her hair style with extensions.

    humantraffic4.jpg

    And since you're in Australia I have no idea where you would get the extension hair from. I would imagine a salon would be a good place to ask, but other than that I'm clueless. Also maybe you could try bantu knots.. I consider that a "twisted style" too.

    ETA: Also check on the net to see if you can order some hair..

    oooh thanks i'll have to check out some more images of that film.

    I wasn't sure where I'd get extensions either. I might look at the local hair supplies. I was thinking online - does it matter what kind I get? I'm such a newbie and got inundated with all these different types of braiding hair! Really gotta research this better. I might start a little late into the challenge - depending on my luck with extensions as well as my course workload right now.

    so excited though!

    ETA: I've read that most people use a lot of moisturizing products in there twists and braids, but should I use something with a little hold too? my hair tends to be silk and slip out of things. Would you suggest anything.

    My hair isn't the best at holding twists or braids either because of the slip factor, so yes, I would say try a bit of gel on each twist to get them to stay in place better. Also jaw clips, bobby pins, small elastics (soaked in oil of course) will help keep those twists in. They will of course become loose at times, so you will have to refresh them every so often the longer you wear them. However when you first do a twisted style I would do it on freshly washed and conditioned hair.

    I will definitely have to give your suggestions a go. I love the look of flat double stranded twists. People are so creative with them. Love it.

    Now I shall have to go supply shopping :D so excited!

    I agree LHC can be a little scary - feel a little insignificant over there. Much more support here.

    In terms of yarn braids do you just braid 'yarn' into them instead of extensions? I'm such a newbie.

    That's up to you, but whatever you do let us see your progress and your pictures. I'd say do all three if you're inclined, or keep it simple and just post pix here.

    they are totally cute...I can probably get away with some of them when I'm purely at uni (going to classes), but work and placement might be a different story.

    In terms of yarn braids do you just braid 'yarn' into them instead of extensions? I'm such a newbie.

    Yes I learned from two videos by blackonyx77 on Youtube (Here is Part One and Part Two ). It's very easy, but time consuming. It took my 15 hours to complete. Granted they were armpit length and braided all the way down. The preparation is also time consuming. Next time I will do them just a little longer than my hair, long enough that my hair won't burn when I burn the ends :D and I will twist them. BUT the parts will be smaller. I'll let you guys know if it takes less time or not.

    I would love to do this challenge. I'm going to the stylist tomorrow for a consultation (someone recommended) and I will ask about her doing twists with extra hair. I do not want my scalp showing if I'm going to be wearing for a year. I will let come back and let you know what she says. I'm really wanting to grow it out so I can donate to Locks of Love. The minimum donation is 10" and I want to end up with at least shoulder length hair. Which means I need to retain all of my 6" this year. Shouldn't be a problem, but this would definitely be a step in the right direction.

    I forgot to ask you, how did you secure the ends -- just tied them in a knot?? Also how do you think they would look if I made yarn-cornrows (for lack of a better term)?

    And NCE good luck on your appointment!

    I'd recommend an oil.. but try making a decision on how you know your hair to react to things best.. before you go spending unnecessary $$..

    Whenever I used to have my hair braided up.. I would use tea tree oil and cotton balls... but that has been like 5 years ago. hope everything works out for you.

    I tied two knots and burned the ends (I can't afford to take any chances ;-) ). Hm... yarn cornrows. I have no idea lol. You should try them and share how they come out (yes, I'm suggesting that you be the guinea pig lol)

    And NCE good luck on your appointment!

    I tied two knots and burned the ends (I can't afford to take any chances ;-) ). Hm... yarn cornrows. I have no idea lol. You should try them and share how they come out (yes, I'm suggesting that you be the guinea pig lol)

    Lol.. gee thanks.. :tongue10:

    Okay, well what kind of yarn did you use..is worsted weight okay? Michael's is having a sale this weekend (although I really have NO excuse for buying more yarn).

    My staples: Mane n Tail (cowash), Garnier Fructis Sleek n Shine (leave in condish), Grapeseed oil or shea butter (sealing), Organic Root Stimulator Elasticitea (leave-in condish & light hold)

    pulchri2dinous - your yarn braids are sooo nice!! And thanks for the youtube. I wanna try! I too would love to know what kind of yarn you used.

    I have my mid semester / easter break coming up so what better time to procrastinate when i should be studying. Will be a nice 'break'

    bekka - thanks for the inspirations! I can see some of them working for me. Just wish my hair would grow already (it is growing just over it being so short and are envious of long flowing locks!)
    2 something Australian :toothy4:

    Aiming to grow hair to waist from buzz cut - slowly but surely.
