I put these in a week ago, and they took me just under four hours to do.
Then again, this time also included me trying to do the 'Single Ladies' dance numerous times.
So yes. I think I'll leave these in for a couple of weeks because, you know, I have work to do and don't have time to do my hair and stuff.
Also, I really want to whip my hair a la Willow Smith.
I say this. But watch me take it out in a couple of weeks and then lament I have no time to do anything to my hair.
Plus, I want to try new stuff with my twists and prove to myself that it is a versatile hairstyle, as well as keeping my hands out of my hair.
Yesterday, I wore them in a small fold under bun at the back (completely pulled my hair through the first time but only half way through the second time).
Say a prayer for my edges, y'all.I put my (untwisted - I get so bored very easily!) fringe/bangs into three fat twists and then bantu knotted them overnight.
Then I took them out in the morning and pinned them to the side, leaving a little crazy curlage loose at the bottom. They look a lot less ropey in person.
I took the pin out after church.
Ignore the scarf. I was feeling like I was in a Cote d'Azur film or something. The wind very nearly made it so.
I also think this is the last time I'm going to be doing a 'protective style' like this. My hair is just too fine for me to be mucking about in it this often and this harshly.
