It is long term protective style time. More like, “I’m getting tired of dealing with my hair every week” time.
I plan to keep my hair in the same style for ~4 weeks, maybe 5ish. Depends on how I feel. The outcome isn’t exactly what I had envisioned, but I like it well enough. When I was doing the twists at the front, I was thinking, Hm, maybe I should just do mini twists instead, but wow, what a funny joke that was. The only qualm I have for this style is the millions of bobby pins I have holding some kind of vine twist bun-esque up. Then again, there will never not be pins when styling my hair.
So, I bought a plant a few days ago, and the very next day, I noticed it was drooping. I was a little flummoxed because the soil was wet, and it was fine when I purchased it! Like, are you too cool to hang out on the window sill, plant?
But after it hanging in the sun for another day, and the soil still being wet, I figured that that must be a problem. Because usually wet soil = growth, yeah. But! there is such a thing as drowning the roots.
I finally got around to buying a new pot and potting soil.
I think I waited too long, because, damn look at it. I’ll wait a week and see.
