Back On the Ball

So I need to get back on the ball. I've been avoiding posting because quite frankly I'm the only one reading. But I really do need to be documenting my hair journey a little better so from now on I'm going to try to post at least once a month. 

So this past year I've had a great journey. I've straightened me hair (a couple times), cut it, gotten Marley Twists and Senegalese Twists and even tried a Bantu knot out (which I forgot to take pics of :-(). This week I'm rocking a Marley bun (pic coming soon). Tomorrow will probably be wash day and I have no clue what I'm doing to my hair after that. I'll come up with something. 

Until next time!

Unravelled

So I took my twists out last night and got the CUTEST twist out!! 



I rocked it today and I probably will tomorrow too. I'll wash either tomorrow night or Thursday and then style for the weekend on Thursday. Still haven't decided what style to choose for the weekend. I know that it'll probably be a protective style. Def not a puff or wash and go though. I might hit up YouTube for some ideas. 

Happy Tresses!

Two Strand Twist Updo

On Saturday we went to the Circuit Assembly (visited to listen, ours was back in October) and I had no idea how I woul wear my hair. Initially, I was just gonna wear my twists down, but then I decided that I wanted something a little more sophisticated. So I hit up trusty ole YouTube. I watched a few videos and then came up with this style:


I divided the back into two sections and then roll, tuck, and pinned them up. Then I sectioned out a bang in the front and secured it out of the way. Next, I took the right section and began to two strand twist UP, catching the ends of the back roll into the twist. Then I "turned" the twist backward (to create the little knot/hump) and pinned in the middle off head. I then repeated the same thing with the other side. For the "bang", I held the hair out to the right side fairly loosely and then about halfway down the length of the hair I rolled the hair backward so that the first half was loose and the second half was taut. Then I folded the taut half behind the loose half and pinned in place, making sure to hide the ends. 

(Sorry I look a hot mess. I was at my MILs and had started taking the style down when I remembered I was supposed to post a pic of how I did it.)

Then I tucked in other stray ends and finished with a flower! I got lots of compliments on it and it was very quick and easy. I was actually just playing around looking for ideas when I came up with the style but I liked it so much that I kept it.

 My cousin's graduating in NC this coming weekend so I think that I'll probably wash my hair on Wednesday, twist it on Thursday, and put it in an updo on Friday for the weekend. Hopefully everything goes as planned. 

Happy tresses everyone!

Twists/Mini twists


Last Thursday I twisted my hair. Actually, I started on Wednesday evening and did the bottom two rows. But anyway, it took me from like 11am to 6:30pm to finish. They were smaller than I originally intended to make them but I think they look very nice. I got tired and made some of them too big so I had to go back and split them in half later. I got tons of compliments at the meeting and everyone thought they looked great. And look at that shrinkage!!! Loving it! Can't wait to see how long it is when I straighten it in September. :-)

Happy tresses!
