Hey hey hey!
As Nyachomba and I mentioned on our 2011 To-Do list, protective styling is key if we are to attain insane length by the end of the year. To start off, I did some chunky box braids about a week ago!
This is also the finale of the prelude post. May I just add that I love them!
By the way, Is it just me or do you guys also LOATHE the first two days of fresh braids? My goodness, my hair looks sparse, the gaps drive me crazy and styling is out of the question because my scalp is way too tender. I spend these two days feeling awkward and spritzing the heck out of my hair... I digress, so anyway here are my Brandy Braids!
Getting them done was dirt cheap! Ksh. 500, (that's about $ 6.25). The braids are super synthetic and a packet cost about Ksh. 70 (that's less than a dollar), I only used three.
I asked the braider to make them extra large; the downside was that they were heavy, so I kinda had to chop a quarter of the length off for the sake of my poor hairline (I am extremely paranoid when it comes to traction alopecia. Extremely.)
Did I mention that I had them done in the comfort of my home while as I watched True Blood (I love you Eric... and Mehcad). It took three hours to have them done, (what can I say I have a rather large head and lots of hair, plus it was only one braider).
Nyachomba is also having her Brandy Braids done next week! We are planning an epic protective style challenge for the first quarter of 2011, please feel to join us!
Well that's it for now, do enjoy the weekend.
Love and affection! x
