It's been 9 weeks since my last relaxer and having my hair in a protective style most of the time is a huge part of my regimen since I'm stretching at least 38 weeks. After taking down the last twists, I decided to put my hair back in braids in order to minimize the manipulation of my hair.
I noticed that the ends of my hair had gotten thinner in the past 3 weeks maybe with my visit to 2 completely new hairdressers who may have handled my hair roughly.... especially the one I got the rollerset from last week. Yikes...........my hair was all over the floor. I was crying inside!! I do not want any setback again so I went to my favourite hairdresser, Miriam (054 7888997) during lunch break yesterday. I can't describe how glaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad I am!! I was doing my happy dance inside after the braids were all done.
She used 6 packs of black yarn and the installation time was 2 hours! That's fast! I dare say I haven't yet seen yarn twists with cornrows this neat and tidy....all rows even and twists the same size!! If I hadn't seen the yarn being installed myself, I would have said this is definitely not braids with yarn...............lol!! It was quite hard deciding to use yarn because I searched the internet for days of convincing images to no avail. If not for my resolve to get a style that will last at least 8 weeks, and Miriam assuring me I won't regret it, I'd definitely not have tried it at all. Great looking braids definitely depend on the braider, doesn't it? So far, my scalp is not itchy or sore as the braids are not tight, and I feel no pain or headache at all. This surprised me because the last time I got yarn braids with a different hairdresser, I couldn't sleep for almost 3 nights!!
I chose this simple style because I want to have a lot of access to my scalp so I can massage in my T444Z hair food with ease and no fear of destroying the style. I will have no reservation about washing these braids as I am convinced they will dry much faster because they are short. I will wash twice a week as usual and deep condition once or twice a month with Vitale Mayonnaise or a homemade recipe (depends on how easily it rinses out the first time). I will continue to GHE every night using water and Profectiv Oil.
My hair is safely tucked away from my parasitic hands. What a relief!!
