It’s been a looooong week. After working last weekend, I was puffed. So I didn’t do much to my hair over the week, and I didn’t take many pics either. I kept it simple. I didn’t have time to have my wash day on Sunday, as I was working. So I had to do it on Monday eve. I was so knackered on Monday morning, I just went to work without having braided it the previous night. So it had shrunken quite a bit, some people even asked me if I’d cut my hair, lol. So Monday was a lax day. On Tuesday I wore a high puff:
I wasn’t feeling myself, I was just testing the camera for our Breast Cancer Awareness campaign internal photos…really, I was. Thanks Jen for being my photographer!
On Wednesday I did two twist ups on the right side.
On Thursday I wore a twist up on either side and a front “pouf”.
I’m fast becoming a big fan of this style. It’s quick and easy and lessons how casual my fro can look for when I want to jazz it up a bit. By Thursday eve, my hair was still feeling really dry and matty and I think it might be because I chose to flat twist my hair on Monday after washing it. For some reason doing that sometimes doesn’t retain much moisture for my hair. But the hair colour might also be contributing to dryness so I definitely think I’ll have to do some more research into taking care of dyed hair. Anyways, in an attempt to rescue it, I took some time out to dampen my hair with my daily spritz and combed through sections before I braided them. Once braided, I massaged a bit of butter all over. Wrapped and slept. Worked like a charm.
On Friday, I wore it free fro. My hair was happy and spongey again 🙂
**NB: Watch out for my first video for this style!
Today, I repeated the side flat twists with a flower as my previous recording of the style hadn’t saved. So I did it again today, and LOVED rockin’ my brand new dress from my second home, Cotton On. I was meant to get this dress, it was on my list, was marked as R90 and while I was in the queue, saw on the tag it was named “Aisha”!! I was laughing and smiling all the way until I met the cashier, people must’ve thought I was crazy. It was meant to be! I love that dress even more now lol. Oh and did I mention I got it for a bargain R40?! Thank you Cotton On!
