Hi People!! Its been long...I know but I got so carried away with so many important things that my hair and blogging had to take a back seat!! The dry harmattan weather has also not been making hair care easy as my hair gets dry and difficult to handle when I need it to behave. I made a moisturizer that worked wonders for me (more on this in another post) but I needed a style that will take my hands away from my hair. During the weekend I started box braids but after an hour I got too tired and lazy to continue. So I dumped the idea and looked for more hair inspiration.
Remember T.Y Bello? Well she is the most popular fro head in Nigeria. I stumbled on a blog that spoke about her hair and guess what T.Y's hair is a weave!! Once a hair stylist she said :
" my motto for weaves is to make sure its as close to your hair as possible. If one has to ask what weave is that then you've failed" . Mm...I can already see the 'bad eye' my Naija sisters will give her over this..but that's her opinion and I gbadu her... She said she uses Sleek Afro Cool but I could not find one...
It does not look as frizzy as I would like it to be but I'm hoping that it will poof up as the days go by. Because the hair is so big, I put it in 4-5 huge twists, tie a scarf and off to bed. In the mornings I spray my own hair with water and oil, fluff the fake and out I go.Before the weave I:
I refused the let the stylist comb or part my hair using a comb. She used her fingers to create rough parts and...the rest you know.
A friend of mine could not believe I put a weave in my hair. He was like: WHY!! My little sister asked for a picture- she has never seen me in a weave...lol. This is the second time in my short twenty something years on earth.The first time, the weave lasted for 5days before I took it down I just hope I can keep this one o. Sha... all goes to show that you don't need to relax your hair before getting a weave my sisters. Natural hair is all about versatility. Just don't get hooked on the weave!
