Hope you have a good weekend? Mine was very interesting, my best friend had a function and she appointed me 'preacher of the day'. I guess you never your hidden talent until you take your chances. Watch out y'all, here comes the next Joyce Meyer :-) I have this spiritual side of me that i let loose once in a while, i think I'll join a ministry in my church and see how i can serve God.
Anyhoo, I put in braids a few days ago and I've been planning on sharing the photos for your comments. The braids are called 'corkscrew', these are not your traditional braids, they are actually made and mostly used as extensions sewn on cornrows. I discovered a few years back that they can be used to braid if you cut them shorter, split them vertically and braid only at the roots. This methods leaves you with a huge 'afro' to play with. You can wear them down or in a puff. I don't how to explain better without a tutorial, maybe some photos will help:)
|This is how each braid looks...I've braided just at the roots and let the curls hang|

They you go ladies! Please give me some feed back on what you think about this style. What i love most about it is its versatility, there's so much i can do with it. As for maintenance, its as simple as spraying my home-made spritz of tap water, rose water, Organics Best Africa Curl Keeper Leave-in Conditioner, glycerine, coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil and almond oil all shaken together.
Have a lovely week and grow those tresses!
