I am just trying to understand my hair, to learn what works and what doesn't, to experiment, make mistakes, and to embrace my hair in it's entirety..... because Roots Don't Lie

Protective Style..

Hey Guys,
I know I have been away for a few weeks now.. I was away on vacation but not to worry I have lots of pictures to share with you... once I figure out how to arrange them.. so watch out for those.

During my vacation I wore my hair mostly in a braid-out or a high puff. I finally decided i needed a break and so I put in a protective style.
I simply cornrowed the back, twisted the ends of the cornrows, and then put in two-strand twists in front for a little bang-type deal. My parting could be a lot better... but yeah.. practice practice practice...

After a few days I took the twists out in the front for a different look

With the twists taken down...

I took down the twists at the end of the cornrow, and the front twists after a few days... so  I ended up redoing the ends.. besides that the style has been in for about 10 days now...
To moisturize, I simply spritz my hair with a mixture of conditioner, water, glycerin and a few oils.

It's nice taking a break from styling my hair everyday..

Hope you enjoyed.
Please posts any questions, or comments you may have.
Till next time
