**UPDATE
I posted a "Giveaway Winner" Post, but I seem to have lost it :/

The other follower followed my blog AFTER I announced the giveaway, so she did not qualify.

There will be another giveaway soon.

HAIR: LONG "Senegalese Twists"

I went ahead and braided the hair from the root (quarter inch) and then proceed to twist. I braided from the root because it was much faster than twisting from the root.

Be sure to check out my vid on youtube

My hair was freshly washed
I usedCreme of Nature leave in moistirizer- no oils
It took me 8 hrs - with help for about 3 hrs
I used about 6 packs- colors 1b, 2, 4
I'm 5' 5"



Dipped in Boiling water


 Let out


Like, why not go super long?? :)

HAIR: Flat-Twist Protective Hairstyle

This was sorta spur of the moment lol

TIPS
Be sure you're in the mood to do your hair
Be patient & have at least 2 hrs to spear
Have an extra mirror at hand
Don't think too much about it, you can always tweak it when finished
You CAN do it yourself :)

 I used Do- Grow Medicated grease and a little gel

 Right side


Right side and back finished


Left side finished


The front in progress

Front finished


I twisted the remaining loose hair in the middle



That's how the left side looked at first. After, I took 3 flat twist out and made single twists

The back- hair down



I pinned up the back a bit


Friday- 3 days later, I took the twists out



Of coursed it frizzed a bit. I added a little gel


I talk about it in this video


Hope you like this post!

HAIR: 3 simple protective looks - short/medium length natural hair

This is my go to protective style when all else fails; two strand twists!



I came up with 3 very simple styles that you can do if your hair is in twists and you have to make a quick (or not so quick) run somewhere

One: Flat twist both sides and pin where needed




Two: Put twist in pony tail, tie scarf (optional) and tuck from twist under




Three: Pull front twists in opposite direction (to give flare lol), put twists in pony tail and wrap scarf around




Mac: 'Up the Amp' on lips

Blessings
