JJ's hair for week 3 of the Protective Styling Challenge entailed taking out the back braids (from Week 2's cornrows into a mohawk with twists) and making plain old small (not quite mini) twists. I left the front the same:
For week 4 everything came out and I made cornrows at the front and small box braids at the back. Because the cornrows were thicker I split each one into three small hanging braids.
I hope to keep these braids for a while... I have been VERY good at following all the styling challenge rules (no rubber bands, no barrettes, no snaps, no BEADS). But when this is over, I plan to add some of those beads I bought waaaaaaay back in Week 1!!
