My Shaved Sides : Update

Since December I have been growing back my shaved sides. I decided that instead of doing another big chop, which other people are more against than I am. I will just be patient and let myself have a sides journey.
It has not been easy especially with the pregnancy because I just did not feel satisfied with the look and limited options that I have with my sides growing back.

Below is my progress so far.

My No Heat Stretch Twist out

Since I started growing back my shaved sides I was having a hard time finding hair styles that didn't have a  Mohawk shape.

I decided to stretch my hair using soft ponytail holders.

 1. I separated my hair into medium sections and sprayed each section with water.
 2. Then I applied a light conditioner and sealed with coconut oil.
 3. I wrapped the ponytail holders along each section to stretch.
 4 .I followed the above steps around my whole head and allowed to dry over night

To maintain this stretched style.

I did chunky twist around my whole head and applied the ponytail holders to the length of my hair.

In the A.M. I just removed the holders fluffed and styled.
