Free because literally it cost me nothing to have them. I use to pay anywhere from $80 – $220 to get my hair braided or twisted at the African braid shops to only take it down 2 – 3 weeks later. Although I loved being able to wake up, spray some braid spray and go about my way, this was not a smart way for me to spend the little money I did have. While sitting in the chair for hours getting my scalp twisted (I swear that’s what it felt like sometimes) I used to wonder if I could achieve the same look with my own hair, nothing added. But at the same time I thought it was impossible because my relaxed hair couldn’t do it and since I wasn’t giving that up it just couldn’t be done.
Well, I am sooo glad that Nappturality forums taught me that it was possible and it could be achieved and it will only happen when I left the relaxer alone. Grant it these braids are not the size of the African braid shop braids but I love em. My own braids are light and has movement. The others used to be heavy, pulled on my edges and some even fell out, that’s not a good thing.
I also found the metal feather earring I thought was lost, it went perfectly with the dress. I wonder if Glitter rotates its selection of accessories, may just have to make a special trip to the mall to find out…LOL
Until next time…….
