Hair Journal: Box Twists to Hair Out to Yarn Twists

Have been so eager to post about my hair and all things hair, but due to the usual connectivity issues found where I happily live, I had to patiently wait. Which as a lady on her natural hair journey, is something that I’m getting the hang of. Patiently waiting.

Anyway, I undid my box twists to reveal hair that is still growing, especially on my stubborn thin edges. Yay! My hair there is slowly filling in and I’m patiently waiting. When I detangled, washed my hair and conditioned it, along with the shedding ( I just don’t feel happy seeing shed hair no matter how normal it is ), my hair was black, shiny and strong. Oh and so soft, so I was very relieved. Adding to my relief was the fact that the few split ends I found when I still had my braids in, were not widespread in my hair. With a little extra tlc on my ends when the braids came out, it was all good.

I love having my hair out, although coming out with cute styles that still look neat for work can be a challenge for me. With my hair out, during the week, I usually do updos or french plaits and puffs. During the weekends, I tend to do more, although I’m a lazy styler. I wanted another protective style though because our winter was not over yet, so got yarn twists/genie locs which I intend to keep in for about 3 to 4 weeks.

So this month I went from:



My puffy puff puff...

My puffy puff puff…

To yarn twists! Which took me FOREVER  to plait.

Nearly done...

Nearly done…


Relieved to be done, finally...

Relieved to be done, finally…
