These past weeks’ look

So I finally got my protective style in, and just in time cos there’s been a huge dip in the temperature here. The other day it actually snowed! So just as well two weeks ago I made the decision to just get my hair sorted. I prepped my hair on the Thursday (red beanie pics) evening and was planning on starting it on Friday after work but was tired. So that moved to Saturday early morning, which then turned to 11am on Saturday, lol. Kev helped prop a stack made out of all the pillows we have in the house on the bed so I can have my The Good Wife marathon. This time, my hair was about 2 inches longer than it was last time I did this style. And I almost felt like there was more hair to get through. But I persevered and in fear of not having enough extensions, didn’t use as much hair as I did last time either. So it didn’t come out as MASSIVE as before. But I still love it. Fuss free :D.

Only problem is, for some weird reason the fro’s turning into dreads quicker than it did last time. It’s been two full weeks, so planning on washing it this week. Then maybe keep the braids in another week or two. The plan was to keep it til end of August and have it braided by a friend end of August, but I’m doubting that will happen now 🙁 So have to figure out what my next move is. I have two more packs of the afro braids but if I wait til next winter to use them again, my hair will (hopefully) be too long to do this style with. So I think I’ll probably try using them another way. Question is, when is winter really ending so I can finally have my own fro out for a bit?!

    Hi Pretty, thanks so much for your comment and compliments 🙂 It's really nice to hear that someone finds me an inspiration 😀 I'm glad you enjoy my blog, please spread the word to whomever may also benefit from it. A quick tip for softer hair: I love using my daily spritz that I spray twice a day on my hair. I make it out of Herbal Essences Hello Hydration conditioner, vegetable glycerin, aloe vera juice, water, castor and avocado oil. I up the amount of oil when winter comes and my hair is soft and fluffy. For more product recipes, check out my "@ home" page. Hope that helps 😉
