Unfortunately, I was unable to continue the CG challenge due to hair breakage. I noticed a lot of breakage in the middle of my head where I would normally pin the hair back during this challenge. Okay, I can't totally blame it on the CG challenge because this has always been a sensitive area for as far as I can remember.

Plenty of times I had to cut this section. It can be one of three reasons:

  1. The flat iron is sectioned off there
  2. The way my hair is wrapped at night on that section
  3. When I pin my hair back, it is always around that section
I am determined to figure out the reason. So I flat ironed my hair and trimmed that section. I will now flat iron every two weeks like in the past. Now this time when I flat iron, I will NOT section it off down the middle and across the side, instead, I will section it off in a total of six pieces. I am also going to up my oil rinses and deep conditioning. Last but not least, I will not wrap my hair in a bee-hive, I will wear it in a loose bun before bed, and wrap the sides up with a scarf. 

I will update you all at the end of the year on the progress!
