Free from the braids

As you might have guessed, I took out my braids. I just could not deal with the tug-o-war that was happening on my head anymore. I had to free myself from the braids. They only lasted 3 days, but I’m so happy they’re gone. Keeping these braids any longer would’ve caused major damaged to my hair, and that was not the goal at all. Unfortunately, I can see a lil spot where I started losing some hair. It is not much and I’m hoping I can get it fixed pretty soon. I can definitely say, this braiding experience was the worst of them all. See when we do a protective style, the goal is to protect our hair for a certain period of time.

My Hair Journey Story

Welcome darlings, My hair story is similar to that of most brown girls we all know. I’m sure it will sound familiar to you. At an early age, I was introduced to the “Creamy crack” as we so lovingly call it or (relaxer), to tame my mane. When I was growing up, people (at least the ones around me) didn’t really do much to their natural hair. I now realized that they probably didn’t really know how to take care of the coils in their hair. With that said, I was tired of the pain I always experienced each time my hair was being combed. And of course, I felt ugly compared to the other girls my age with straightened hair. So, at the tender age of 13, if my memory serves me well, I had my first relaxer applied and never looked back. I remember that day as if it was…
