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.

Twist N’ Curl ft. Shea Moisture

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I know you guys are used to me doing the Twist n’ Curl method (here and here) where I twist the hair then roll 3-5 twists onto a perm rod but this time I did the other method. I realize that the initial method I usually use takes a longer time to dry.

In addition to that, I used the wonderful Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Curling Gel Soufflรจ to achieve this style.

Finger Coils

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I’ve had many failed attempts at finger coiling my hair, for what reason? I don’t know. But I must say I’ve done 90% of my hair in finger coils and they came out perfectly. The front of my hair just doesn’t seem to keep the coils and I will not fight it anymore but keep what it gives me.

Queens Wear White

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

Yesterday, June 18, 2016ย we laid my dadย to restย and being that he was a very jovial man, my mom and I preferred persons wearing cheerful colors to the funeral. We were mourning but I am sure he’s in a better place smiling down on us and hoping we’d smile too.

Factual or Mythical Series: Protective Styles Make Your Hair Grow

This has been a myth in the natural hair community for quite awhile. Now when we speak of protective styles we’re speaking of a style that protect the ends of our hair. Protective styles include twists, braids, wigs, extensions, weaves, etc. When we protect our ends we avoid the chance of it breaking off. Ends not being broken off = more length.

Women will often do back to back protective styles to encourage hair growth but are not aware of the downfalls of doing this. I myself have been a victim of the back-to-back protective styling trying to grow long hair. Protective styles helps us to retain length – not grow our hair.

Undefined Fro

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

Lastย Wednesday I wore my hair in undefined style and I love it. I am a girl who loves a defined look, so falling in love with an undefined style means I am growing to love my hair in whatever state it’s in. I used to think persons would look at me like I’m a crazy girl with all my hair out like that but I just didn’t care that day. I had so many eyes staring at my hair but it just didn’t matter. I felt free, my hair dancing in the wind. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve Noticed Softer Hair

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹

I am one to always wear my hair in mini twists. Here in Jamaica, we call them rope twists. Yesterday, I installed another head of rope twists and I noticed that my hair was as soft as ever than before. I was in awe.

I washed my hair on Thursday -the whole works of shampoo, deep condition, condition, apply a leave-in and then applied my black castor oil infused with argan oil mixed with coconut oil. This is the process I always used when washing my hair but I tweaked it a little. I wasn’t home by the way when I washed my hair. I was staying at my cousin’s house. Now, at his house he has a water heater.
