My Week in Styles

15 04 2011

Two weekends ago, I put some mini twists in my hair.  As always, putting them in was a marathon pain in the neck, but the end result was so worth it.  I did however wash them right away and was then left with fuzzy twists.  Now exactly what I wanted right away, but that was what I had.  So I decided to challenge myself to style these twists every day that I had them in my hair.  I ended up styling them for an unheard of 10 days!!!!  As I sit here typing up this post, I so desperately need to wash and deep condition my hair it isn’t funny.   I think I’ll do a caramel treatment today but then I’m thinking it’s already after noon as I am finishing this.  I guess I’d better get a move on then.  So above is my little collage of the styles for the week.  Or click and watch the video with more detailed pics of the various styles I did over the week.  Thanks for checking in!

Mini Twist Roller Set

12 01 2011

I spent 16 hours twisting my hair this past Saturday.  Then I immediately got bored with them.  Sunday I rolled them on perm rods.  Here are the pics. 

I really like the way they look, but they kept falling in my face and I just couldn’t take it anymore.  I ended up washing the curls out the next day.  Back to my curly ends!

My Healthy Hair Journey

Day to day hair style with mini twists

I decided that the first thing you should know about me is about my hair.  Vain much? I don’t think so, you’ll get it in a minute…

So I have talked about having a 12 year old girl at home with me.  Well she is natural.  I have never put perm in her hair.  When she was little, I taught my self how to do the Venus Williams type braids in her hair and it worked well for us. She was an easy kid to do hair on, unlike her mother who used to have to get tied to a chair to get her hair combed.  She grew up with long hair down her back.  Once she hit about 9 years old, it just got to be too much for me to manage and I found myself having to make a choice.  Either relax it or figure something else out.
