Crown & Glory for Life?
With the creation of the WL Hair Challenge, you saw in my game plan that I will be implementing the Crown & Glory Method/Technique quite a bit till my hair grows to my waist. My hair thrives and flourishes off of this technique. If you followed my hair journey last year, then you remember early on, this fared well for me and my hair grew like a weed. Not that it's not growing now but I noticed how well my hair was doing when I was crochet braiding my hair every 6-8 weeks over the winter months.
I've come to the realization that the Crown & Glory will probably be a permanent part of my lifestyle like eating and breathing. Any other C&G Ladies for Life? Lol. Sounds like a club or group, huh?
Don't know what the Crown & Glory Method/Technique is?
In short summary, it is a cycle of braiding (or twisting) your hair up and leaving it that way for anywhere from 1-2 months, then leave your hair loose for anywhere from 2 weeks - 2 months, and then braid (or twist) it back up and so on and so forth. You can learn more about it at growafrohairlong.com Please know you can modify this to your hair. Some use this technique with twisting and leave their twists in in for 2-3 weeks, take them out and let the hair "breathe" for a few days to 3 weeks, and then re-twist again like I do. It's just a way to manipulate your hair less so it can grow uninhibited.
