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

Hey guys,

I know I have been away for a while, and honestly I'll be MIA for a few more weeks. Work is really busy and all the time I have left, which is not a lot, is spent sleeping or trying to study... Anyway  with things busy at work, I got tired of fixing my hair everyday, and my hair was starting to get crazy... I mean my ends were just ..meh!!!, and my hair felt really dry. Also I have been getting a ton of product build up and my scalp is itching more then ever.... I know things don't seem to be going well with my hair.. it's probably because I have not had time to spend on my hair..

So my solution to all my hair problems...

You guessed it, protective style. I put my hair in mini twists and I know that when I do take it out, de-tangling is going to be horrible but, the smaller  my twists, the longer they last.. and I do need as much time as I can get out of them.

The problem however, are these necessary evils called Bobby pins/ Hair pins. My hair is not long enough to be twisted into a self  'sustaining' updo, so I am forced to use bobby pins/ hair pins to hold them into whatever style I am wearing.. Bobby pins/ hair pins, however can be the most annoying thing ever...
 By the end of the day:
  • My scalp is sore because the pins need to hold my hair in place and I am very tender-headed
  • My hair is itching because the darn pins start flaking and they leave behind pieces of whatever is used to coat them in my hair
  • If they don't flake, the rounded ends somehow get separated from the ends, and so when removing them my hair gets stuck on the ends.
Do you guys find bobby pins/ hair pins as annoying as I do?
Do you also know any alternatives I can use to hold up my hair instead of using pins?

I love hearing from y'all so please leave your comments..
