This is how I've been wearing my hair since my Bentonite Clay Hair Mask Treatment. After much avoidance, and thin ends that I really need to trim - I've decided that I need to do more protective styles and manipulate my hair a lot less. Typically, I would retwist my hair every night so that I could wear it out, but I've realized that's way too much. Couple that with the cold weather, the ends of my hair started to split. I now twist it and put it in a bun, which has been working out pretty nicely. I do need to make it a point to coat it with Jojoba Oil on a nightly basis though. Daily moisture is something else I need to work on. I'm going to trim soon and keep protecting in an effort to hold on to my ends and see a lot more growth this year.
