Taking down my Kinky braids

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Hi!

Golly it's been ages, I've been unable to blog (or do much else on the net) for a while now but thats all sorted :) I'm happy to note Nyash has been taking good care of yaol.

I undid my Kinky braids last night; I had to soak my hair in olive oil the day before (and tie a head wrap) so that my hair wouldn't suffer from wear and tear and also to keep my hair moisturized because of the shampoo session I would have after I took em down.

Mizz Kinky_Locks (how you doin girl!) posted a comment on my last Kinky post asking about acrylic yarn. I have read up on them but i've never tried them on! Whats their texture like? I'm all for braids! After the amazing growth spurt iv just had I recommend them. BE WARNED: you MUST keep your natural hair moisturized. Seriously. And protect your edges with loose styling.

I was in the office all alone this morning and went on a blogging rampage! thats me by my work desk!



Below is me taking my braids out last night and some growth! hurrah! I washed and deep conditioned my hair immediately after and blacked out.

Growth!


This morning i did some big lazy twists and held them in place with some pins and added a peacock hair-pin for some flare.

Man I missed my curls... its good to have them back!



Ummmm.. What im wearing today: my mums scarf, a lovely jacket I forgot all about, dark blue wife-beater and a pair of gray skinny jeans. Pardon the skinny ankles..




Thanks for reading, enjoy your day

Hey.....yay for the growth spurt!! I wanna braid so bad but I can't right now because I'm right in the middle of shooting a tv series and with continuity issues and all, it's gonna have to wait a couple of months.

So about the acrylic yarn .....my mum and I used to do it quite abit when I was younger...she used to braid me until I got the hang of it and I started braiding myself in Uni. They feel really good, soft in texture and half the time look like real dreadlocks. They are kind on hair and actually, I can't believe I had forgotten all about them. They are amazingly cheap, a ball of yarn is about 70bob and you'll need about two for shoulder length braids.

Love the scarf...
Talk soon.
