Fro’s officially in hibernation mode.
I’ve been mentioning that winter’s well on its way. And with a temperature drop comes a hair style change. This, as of Sunday, is what I’m currently rocking:
I used my last bunch of afro kinky hair extensions from the US (thanks again Rukia, will be needing more ;)). Final Touch salon in Kelvin Village, Johannesburg hooked me up with the style. I’m very happy with the end result but wasn’t impressed when about 6 cornrows into it, the lady moved onto a new customer who wanted to get her hair relaxed. Ummm, ‘scuse me? What’s the point of booking an appointment with you if you put relaxer customers first? I HATE it when salons do that. Such a waste of my time. Not sure if I’ll be revisiting it or not yet, as the lady said afterwards that she’s the only one there on Sundays who could do both. You should have seen me in the chair once she began relaxing the woman next to me. I got so irrationally paranoid that even a fleck of relaxer might find its way onto my fro. I even shifted my chair slightly to give the chemicals less of a chance to make it onto my head, lol. Anyways, all’s well with fro and the only thing burning at that point was my anger. But I soon calmed down once she got back to me and finished my hair in about 2.5 hours.
I’ll be writing a post soon about how I prepped my hair before installing this style. I actually wanted to have a bit more of a design to the cornrow direction, but the lady wasn’t really getting me so I decided to keep it simple. Last few times stylists insisted they knew what I was saying when in fact they didn’t…well let’s just say my creative skills were very much needed to save the style and justify its price.
So, in conclusion… LOVE 😀
