Yay! Something new! Not that I wasn’t enjoying the natural hair, but I decided I need a new style for the next few months. Also, protective hairstyles for the winter,am I right?!

My genius friend did these for me ( the lil Wayne Tshirt behind me!) She made sure it was nice and thick boxbraids that doesn’t shred the hair. She was also very gentle on my sculp which I am greatful for! Thanks Spokytail!!

In a nutshell, these are AWESOME!!!

I Am My Hair

My hair has taken over my life. My routine revolves around washing it, LOCing it, knotting it and unravelling it. It fascinates me how I stretch it every day, but run my wet hands through it and it shrinks right back to its very roots. It’s beautiful, my mane. I love every strand of it!

I washed my hair and bantu knotted it. Unravelled it looked like this:

I was so excited! I saw progress! So I continued the excercised. The knotted has been taking less and less time which means I’m getting better at it, right?

It shrank 😕 I’m a little sad! But I learned a new thing about my mane: It is extremely curly! It will look like no progress for the next few months! But I don’t regret going natural. One day the afro dream will come true. One day I will be  Africa type beautiful -right?

Until then I should enjoy this. And try not to play with my hair so much. I leave loose ones everywhere, smh
