3in6 Challenge

So I have been reading scouring blogs different blogs and I found I saw this challenge on her blog and decided to give it a try. So I'll have to tweak this challenge since i found it late so my end month will have to be October and I wont be doing twists because I'm relaxed. I'm assuming the twists suggestion was for natural hair. Anyway, wish me luck!!
