It’s funny how I just wrote about my technical issues, and they suddenly become non-issues.
My hair is growing, stretched, the back is now past my collar bone.
Here are some pics although they don’t show length, more health, which is my main goal.
My hair is definately filling out…
I’m truly mostly happy that I no longer have bald spots (weave and relaxer induced).
No more scalp spots 🙂
I’m always on the lookout for new protective styles, as I usually have a protective style about 90% of the year.
Recently I’ve been thinking of getting crochet braids done. I’ve thought of doing them on my own, but I’m not great at plaiting cornrows on my head, let alone crocheting pieces of hair into them. So I’ve decided to search for hairdressers in Harare who do it, I heard that there are a few.
What is crochet braiding?
A crochet needle is used to weave packaged, usually synthetic, hair into natural hair that has been French braided or braided into corn rows. Crochet braids, despite the name, are actually closer to sew in weaves than actual braids.
What is the difference with sew-in weaving?
Sew-in weaves are hair extensions sewn into tracks, placing more tension on the hair. Crochet braids use crochet needles (latch hooks) to loop bulk pieces of hair extension onto cornrows.
• Low cost and low maintenance way to protect hair
• Give better access to the scalp than other protective styles, such as sew-in weaves
• Don’t require hair glue or caps, making them easier on the scalp
• Place less stress on edges
• Look very natural, especially with natural looking extensions
Here are a few pics:

Hi lovelies :-),
I’m so sorry for the lack of posts. I have so many posts to upload and stuff to write about, but I’m having technical issues with my blog. I’m struggling to post or upload.
As soon as the issue is resolved, I’ll be back to blogging as before.
