This Week’s Looks

This week, I kept it quite simple and remixed a couple old faithful styles.

On Monday:


I started off with a puff, as I’m doing these days to help stretch out my hair after wash day. I’m also trying to minimise how often I do this style to lessen the tension placed on my hairline. So nowadays, I usually do it once a week, on Mondays.

**Watch out for my fifth video featuring this style!

On Tuesday:


Didn’t have much time to style it any other way, and I loved the simplicity of a side pull up like how I did last weekend so just revisited it and placed it on the other side.

On Wednesday:


So, this was supposed to be a mohawk. Fro said no. So I guess it’s a…something with twist ups.

On Thursday:



I’d been wanting to try a twist up updo but everytime I planned on doing it, fro threw a tantrum and I went with what was working. In this case, three twist ups in the front. Worked out in the end.

So this week was a little trying as it took awhile for my hair to fully soften and get to that happy place. Well, we got there eventually!

    Our hair length is about the same…and a couple of the styles I already do (and am getting bored with) Thanks so much for other style suggestions that seem like they will be easy to do.:)

      Thanks ZM 🙂 The puff is super simple and old faithful, can't go wrong with it.

    tuesday! wednesday! awesomeness!what method do you use to beat shrinkage after washing? braiding? does it get easier as the hair lengthens? i am at 10 months and i find is so tiring twisting/re twisting each time to beat the shrinkage, i got to make what feels like 20 twists/braids each time. also, have you tried tension blow drying to reduce shrinkage? and how do you detangle on wash day? i am asking all these questions cause i would like to know your experience as my hair has a similar texture.

      Thanks Evbu 🙂 As promised, I'll be posting an article (possibly a videao accompanying it) on how I do my stretching and night time routine etc. Once you get it into your evening routine, it's hard to miss no matter how tired you are. So watch this space!
