After swimming, exercising, and a few styles over the past week, my locs are definitely bushy and I could most definitely use a retwist — at least on my edges. However, I am staying committed to the #NuGrowthChallenge — and I hope you are too!
“So, how was this last week on my nu growth?” I’m glad you asked…
Truthfully, my edges are really my main area of concern once the neatness of a recent retwist becomes non-existent; but they are also where most of the thinning is happening. When my edges become frizzy and the new hairs, that have recently sprouted, stick straight up, I feel really self-conscious; but I have realized that the only way to learn to accept my hair is to embrace it!

Lately, instead of retwisting my edges, I have been wearing updo hairstyles with faux bangs to help me not to think about touching up my edges really quick!
I know I’m not going to wear an updo everyday for the next 6 weeks, because I don’t want to put unnecessary tension on my roots and honestly I’m lazy, lol. This means I’m bound to hear the comment — “When are you going to do your hair?” — more than likely from my Mom…
Who is normally the first person to comment on your roots when you’ve gone past your typical retwist time?
