First Time Installing Box Braids

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

So I installed box braids for the first time. This was my first time doing a protective style that includes covering my entire hair. I must say it was a long process – I hate it. I hate to sit and have someone in my hair for too long. It made me look more mature – I now looked like a 21 year old than a 16 year old.

I did this because I recently cut the damaged ends off, therefore I was unable to do my mini twists without them loosing out due to the fact that my ends were blunt.

10 Reasons To Go Natural, Now!

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹

I make this post to encourage someone to return to their natural hair. You may be considering returning to your natural hair but waver no more. I endorse natural hair because I have natural hair, and just as how a girl on the creamy crack loves to see a girl joining the cream crack community (I have some of these girls in my class) that’s how excited I get when I see my sisters returning to their natural hair.

Being Natural is NOT as easy as it looks!

You may think the topic of this post is to deter my naturalistas or upcoming naturalistas from the natural hair journey that they are on. Stop! This is not so. It is only to prepare the mind for what each of us are getting ourselves into or what we are already in. We may see a fellow blogger or youtuber and think that they have it all together because their natural hair is “on point”, “on fleek”, “them edges laid”, etc- whatever slang makes you sleep at night BUT I am quite sure they’ve also had their days.

Strain has been upon our hair from then to now on how it’s suppose to look and behave at different intervals. This post serves to inform individuals of the African descendants of the evolution of their black hair.
