FOUR WAYS TO TIE A HEAD WRAP WHILE IN BRAIDS

Do you guys know the feeling when you get your hair braided then a few days later, you look at pics of your natural hair then you absolutely miss it? Or, when you have your natural hair open, then you see someone braided and you immediately want to braid? (Like I’ve made some of y’all feel) Lol! Anyway, I have always loved being colourful and when rocking braids, turbans and head scarves can add the colourful vibe to your whole look. So here are a few ways I have tied my scarves and turbans when rocking this super light braided up-do and felt absolutely uplifted (because colours have a way of making us cheerful 🙂 )

MY BRAID CARE ROUTINE

 

It’s been two years since I had box braids installed!! The last time was when my friend did them for me and I trusted her to do them.  I say ‘trust’ because that’s usually the main issue for me when it comes to braiding. The questions that run through my head include “Will she mess up my hairline? ” “Can she make my hair without using heat? ” ” Will it be painful? ” “Will I handle the weight of the braids ” …etc .I’m usually very skeptical about braiding but when I heard about Darling Elegant Braids being #HairLightAsHair, I had to try them and if you are curious if they are, this blog post is for you 😉😉Before delving into the my braid care routine,let me give you the details of what I used and who made my hair this time…

FOUR YEARS NATURAL!

 

Oh my! It has been four years since I started the natural hair journey and today am not celebrating hair length. No! Today , i’m just happy that I have never looked back, that I have fallen deeply in love with my hair, that I have inspired someone to take care of their hair and love it as well. Today, I celebrate the health goals I have achieved. I celebrate myself for starting a platform to inspire women with natural hair, like you who is reading this. I’m happy because a journey I started four years ago has opened so many doors for me (and many more to come ;-)) and I pray that I become a more resilient person, more persistent, more open to try new things, just like my natural hair has taught me. So cheers to many more 🙂 and thank YOU for the support this far.

Love,

Margie

A HEART OF GRATITUDE & A PINCH OF KINDNESS

I am definitely obsessed with floral pieces because I genuinely believe that what I wear reflects my mood- floral makes me feel happy, delighted, aware of my environs, grateful to be alive. This week, I read BikoZulu’s recent article, “There were birds, but they didn’t sing” and that piece not only broke my heart that such evil exists in the world 🙁 , but it also made me appreciate the little things I have taken for granted- the freedom of choice, the gift of life, the freedom to do what I want, to own what I want.

Cornrows 103

 

 

 

Once again, I saw a cornrow trend, I fell in love with it, and I tried it. 🙂 It took me a while before deciding to cornrow my hair because (1) I dreaded having my hair blow dried, and 2) I wasn’t sure if the outcome would be as good as I wanted. (See here the image I used to direct my salonist). So let me share with you what you may want to know about the process of achieving this look.
