......this ....or this.
But now that I have bigger hair and less time on my hands, sitting down once every month -for 6hours or more - is becoming inconvenient.
Yesterday, I woke up with dull looking hair and was in no mood for head wraps or mini twists. Buns were also out of the question but I knew that I had to do something with the mane. So I sat in front of the mirror, moved my hair from side to side and came up with what you see below. I did one didi plait (french braid) at the back and tucked the end into the braid. I then made little box sections, smoothed the roots with a gel made by Natural Nigerian and then twisted. After I was done with that, I used the same gel and a brush to smooth down my hair, pinned down the twists and tied a satin scarf. Some minutes later, I took it off and out I went.
My friend thought I had taken a scissors to my hair again :)
How much time did it take me to style my hair? 40mins! Win!
What you see in the picture above is my hair after running around under the sun in very humid weather (Abeg where that sun wey commot for Abuja come from yesterday? Chei!)My hair still looks neat and I plan on carrying it for 3 more days.
Here is another simple style I did for my little sister some time ago. If I can't think of something new, I'll be wearing this next week.
Anyone care to share some simple styles with us? Send pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a description in the comment box below. It'll be fun trying to re-create what I can't see.
