Soooo, I ended up twisting my hair in three sections: one on top and two at the sides. I pulled the sides back and put the top in a roll.
Let me know what you think…
I have no idea what styles I can wear for a wedding with my natural hair. It’s a new experience for me. The wedding is this Sunday in Jamaica. I’m in the bridal party and I’m just looking for styles now. O_o
The good thing is that I’m not the only natural at the wedding. In fact, most of us are. Change is good, people!! Change is good. We have a hairdresser who will do natural styles, but I want to have an idea of what style options I have. I don’t like my hair pulled too tightly and I don’t want to use heat.
So, here’s what I was thinking…
This style below looks like she used a little bit of heat, but I still like the idea.
Then there’s this one that I’ve done before where I part the crown then do a high tie at the back and tuck the front in. Add my tiara (yes, we are all wearing a tiara), then I’d be good to go.
This one is also nice too…
This is a modified and waaaay nicer version of what I did to my hair a while back. Found it on Tumblr at http://allthingshairr.tumblr.com/
I picked this up by accident and decided to try it anyway. I did the same routine with co-washing my hair, but immediately after I could tell the difference. My hair was much more shiny! When I took the braids out after air drying for a few days, I was pleasantly surprised to see that my hair was soft and so beautiful! I didn’t like the smell (smells like mustard and lavender), but it’s not unpleasant. Just not a smell I would combine.
I’m really glad I tried it though. It’s $14 for a jar, which is much more than the $5 L’Oreal product I use now, but I’ll certainly incorporate it into my routine.
Here’s a pic of the braidout.
If you’ve tried it before, let me know how you’ve experienced it.
Here’s a style I’ve been trying recently that works well for the office and keeps the biting cold away from my brittle ends.
I start from one side at the top and roll my hair into itself. I hold that side with a bull dog clip and do the other side. When I get to the end, I remove the clip and use an elastic to make the bun at the end.
Let me know what you think. What do you do in the winter to protect your hair from the elements?
Absolutely love this fun report from WordPress.com about my blog. End of the year reviews about anything are always good. They remind me of what’s important and that I should celebrate the little victories.
Here’s to 2013 being an awesome year!!
I hope you all have a safe and happy new year.
Here’s an excerpt:
19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 81,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
The giveaway deadline has passed and the winners are comment #7 and #13. So congrats to Tiko and planbtosuccess! I hope you both enjoy it!!!
Happy Holidays everyone!
