Hair Update: Got Braids, Inversion Challenge Begins.

It's been a week since I self-texlaxed. I decided to wait at least a week to determine whether my hair really texlaxed because it looked straighter than I wanted. But after my mid week wash, I felt curls as I run my hands through my hair and realised that indeed, I had texlaxed roots!! I was more convinced after I airdried.
I am transitioning to texlaxed because I'd love to have more volume and thickness. I do have thick relaxed hair, but y'all know Oliver Twist always wants more. I was really glad my self-texlax went well and I may continue to texlax at home using the same method. 

Your question: " Will you go natural after that"?

My answer: No, I won't go natural; not because I don't want to, but because I am too lazy with styling and I love to show length, if it is there. Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, but if I reach my waist length goal and get bored, just maybe I may cut it off and start again......(*wide-eyed*). 

inversion for hair growth

I did my best to measure my hair in different sides of my hair before I installed the braids. It's 11.5'' in front, 10'' front bang, 7.5'' and 8'' at the sides, and 9.5'' in the back. This is for the inversion challenge starting today and ending on 1st December, 2013. You won't believe how many of us are gonna try this!! If it works, great...if not; at least we!!

box braids

Since inversion can be done regardless of hairstyle once oil can be applied to the scalp and massaged, I am really keen on seeing if I will get new growth and loosened roots of these braids by the end of the week. I will be too happy to get 1/2'' in a week, not to talk of 1''. In order not to stress, I won't do a check-in till the week has ended. I will complete some other posts I have in my drafts folder till the week is up. Besides, I'm returning to work tomorrow after being on sick leave for 6 days. I'm happy to be in good health now. Oh, and I love these braids....."I feeeeeeeeeeeeeel good"!
