The Tresstastic: Yaya Decosta’s Full and Fabulous Fro

Screen shot 2011-12-28 at 02.33.12

I love how simple this shot is. The sleek black polo-neck and a full-out fro. Too cute! And it’s Yaya too. If ANTM had a hall of fame she’d definitely be in it.

    Good Morning!

    Yaya’s hair length is my goal for Dawn Yerger’s 30 Day Protective Style Challenge on NappyMuse.

    I am drinking more than half my weight in oz. a day,vitamin d and a multivitamin.

    I am keeping my hair in a protective style, with daily shower rinse while in plated style, conditioner spray on, and oil mix to lock in the moisture obtained from the rinse.

    (side note: To drain excess water with no-heat method via savvy brown) large micro-fiber towel, this is a 2 min wrap.

    I am exercising every morning for 30 or more min.

    When I achieve this I will need to take a picture that is a sleek as this. I would put this pic on my wall. Amazing!

      Oh wow! We have a fairly similar routine although think I’m a bit more ad hoc about some parts. Sounds like I should keep it a bit more focused though :).

      Ooh think you’ve just inspired a question I might ask for my next tresstastic post…
