Kinky Twisted My Hair


Ok, so I haven't been updating like I normally do. Internet situation is on the fritz again but don't worry, I'm working to solve the problem for good this time so I appreciate your patience with me.

Now that the disclaimer is out there, let's get to talking about hair!

So about 3 weeks ago, ya girl kinky twisted her own hair for the very first time!

While they aren’t perfect, I think I did pretty good for my 1st time. They don’t look triflin or anything like that. I’m just a perfectionist and feel that practice makes perfect. I’ll get better as I keep doing them.

They took me about 9 hours to complete. Woo! My arms were soooo tired when I finished them. I did them over a 2 day period. I did 6 hours one evening and the following morning, I attacked the middle which took the last 3 hours. It took me a while but it’s worth it not to have to do anything to your hair for a few weeks outside of misting on some moisturizer.

I used Harlem 125 Afro Kinky Marley Braid hair. It cost $6 a pack at my local BSS (I bought 3 packs but only used 2).



They were just what the doctor ordered. I was getting bored. My hair’s still not long enough to produce many styles and I was “pheenin” for the ability to bust out some up do’s. So I twisted up and have been bangin out up do’s since, like the one featured that I created.

I plan to keep this set in for only a couple more weeks, then I’ll take a 1-2 week break, throw in a henna gloss and put them back in. I have a better grip of what I’m doing now so they should come out better next time around and I’ll leave them in longer.

Girl, you've got patience. I can barely sit still long enough to twist my own hair - forget adding bought hair.

Gia: I'm glad I'm not alone on this! Luv my twa but sometimes I want to do more hairstyles than it allows.

Makeup Theory: @ one point I didn't think I could do anymore! LOL. It's time to take them out and I'm holding my breath thinking about what I will go thru re-twisting them again! LOL.
