Hair Update

So I seem to have ignored my own advice of not putting pressure on your edges.

I thought it would be a great idea to braid my hair because of the unbearable heat that we have been enduring in Lagos lately so when I saw my friend's absolutly fabulous braids, I thought yeah, I have to do same. I thought I knew the drill - I usually do. I asked the braider to leave my hairline well alone and I thought she did. It took eight hours and the result was reaaaaally nice. Practically everyone commented. Unfortunately, as the days went by, I noticed that my baby hair was being pulled off! (horror!!) I tried to take down those on the first line but with every one I took down, I noticed my hair coming off with the attachment :( I tried my very best to manage it but the braids were so tiny that even beyond the hairline, there were issues. So after one week of haven endured the eight hour process of installing, I had to sit my ass down and take it all down. All by myself! My hair did take a beating but I at least have learnt a valuable lesson. My hair will NEVER be ready for tiny braids.

I'm not certain I have a picture because I was too busy taking them down one after the other, but if I do find a picture, I will be sure to update. One of the damage caused as well. Bottom line is, know your hair!


  1. Know thy hair.with all the love for beauty I can't be caught dead with Ghana weave,tiny braids and lace wig.sold lace wigs at a time and decided to try one out.after the lace wig came off,my hair came off.couldn't remedy my vulture-look situation.I think the rule is-do what makes you look good without damage to the natural.
