Rice Water Challenge
So excited to try this. I prepared my rice water from watching a video of the actual Yao women of China prepare theirs. I will be doing the rice water rinse once a week. I have put the surplus rice water in an ice cube tray and will just thaw out every week however many cubes are needed to fill my 6 oz spray bottle when it's time for my rinse. I have starting measurements that I will record here in this folder. I plan to keep this going for the next 7 weeks that should be sufficient enough time, I think, to say whether this will work on my hair. I'm looking for speedier growth, better length retention and just general all around healthier hair. We'll see where this challenge lands me. Like I said previously, I'm so excited to give this a try!

Headscarves! (AKA: Tichels)

My new way to PS (Protective Style). I watched a video by Andrea Grinberg approximately 4 weeks ago on a demonstration on how to tie a tichel (Jewish headscarf) and haven't looked back since. I love, love, love my headscarves. Not only do they cover a bad hair day or a day when I'm not feeling my gray but they protect my strands from the elements in a gentle way and in a way that allows me to get to my scalp still all day and everyday. Until I saw and tried the Jewish-style for tying on a tichel or headscarf, I never looked right with a headscarf. I felt like I looked like a maid or bygone year slave with some of the other styles I tried for tying on a headscarf. Now thanks to willingness to dip my toe into another's culture and style for tying a headscarf that was willing to share, I have found my groove with this and will never, ever stop. These scarves are a permanent part of my arsenal for my hair care journey and I'm so glad I became aware of the option. :)
