I’ve been a busy bee this past few days….it was my week off, but I’ve hardly had a lie in! I have been out and about, in, around and out of London….. but the weather has been lush so far and for that I and my legs are grateful!!!
I actually found time to get my hair braided:
|Got my hair did (I thank Missy Elliot for the lyrics!)|
Dalston, East London £40
It was the first time in 4 years I actually paid for someone to braid my hair; I usually do it myself as I like to save money and I’m quite particular about my hairstyles! But this cost me £40 which was quite reasonable and it was done in 2 ½ hrs (so quick!) compared to the 2 days I usually take to do my hair!
I have been growing out my hair since December 2011; my hair has been out for about a total of 4 weeks this year. For most of the time it has been in braids, which I did myself.
This style was inspired by the current trend of box braids and Solange Knowles; I feel so 90s! It’s heavier than my usual braids but I’m getting used to it. I'm looking to keep the braids in for about 4 - 6 weeks on the basis that i regularly cleanse and oil my scalp & hair. x
