Lol, I know! But I promised over a week ago to show pictures of how my hair came out! This is not the first time that I have done this style so it didn’t honestly take long at all.
I used the Marley Braiding Hair from the previous post to achieve this look. If you know how to twist which I’m sure you all do, then this is super easy. The Marley hair comes separated already so all you have to do is figure out your length and get to twisting. Since I started doing this style I’ve always cut the hair in the middle where the rubber band is and section the hair off that way. That way it gives me length to curl the ends with curling rods. Well this time I wasn’t able to do that. Apparently now my hair is the same length as the Marley twists that I put in so I didn’t want to chance using the curling rod’s in boiling water and having heat damage. That is the reason why the hair is straight at the ends and not curled.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this style because it’s so easy going and it doesn’t require as much maintenance as the regular box braids do. I’ll even be honest by saying I haven’t worn a scarf to sleep in over a week and my hair still looks great. The twists are soooo fluffy and light it’s ridiculous. Every one always asks me if my hair is heavy but it totally isn’t. Normally I do wash my scalp after about 4 weeks of having any type of braids or twists in my hair. This time I bought a cleansing spray that I’m going to try and see how that works. I’m assuming it mimic’s the idea of dry shampoo.
I know the pictures aren’t the BEST quality to show how the style looks but I knew I promised some type of photos. I didn’t want to just keep you all hanging! I put these twists in my hair I believe the last week of February and I plan to keep them in FOREVER, lol. No, I’ll probably take them out at the end of April. My hair needs a much needed break and i'm taking full advantage! My plan is to do a protein treatment as soon as I take these out to give my hair that Umph it may need.
