Happy Martin Luther King Day and happy Monday! 🙂
Today’s post is all about my crochet braids cut done by my hairstylist Darlynda. My crochet braids have been in for almost two months. I have honestly lost count of the weeks. However, I know that in about two weeks, they should be about two months old. Hopefully, they’ll be out by then. If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you already know that the longest I leave my crochet braids in for is about two months. I wouldn’t recommend leaving any protective style in that long. However, I do it all the time! I will say this, I only do this in the winter when I am cold and lazy. I would never leave a protective style in for that long in the spring or summer.
Before & After
I love my crochet braids cut! It has totally revitalized my crochet braids. I was starting to look and feel like a mop head. My head was also really hot at night. It was extremely annoying and uncomfortable. It was way too much hair before. Darlynda cut at least two packs out and you can clearly see the difference in the after picture on the right. The right is more practical and more me. She said for my next installation, I should buy only six packs (instead of eight) to achieve the look on the right.
I went out Saturday night right after my crochet braids cut and my friends noticed a little something different about my crochet braids but they couldn’t put their finger on it. My BFF even asked me if I re-did them. My stylist went in and cut a lot from the middle. She also cut out the raggedy and dead curls. This Freetress Water Wave hair ain’t too shabby . Read my review about it here. I definitely prefer it over Marley hair.
I am looking forward to taking out my crochet braids in two weeks and giving my natural hair some tender loving care (TLC). I was blessed to receive some yummy all natural made in Ghana hair and body products to review for my blog! I can’t wait to use Eya Naturals on my natural hair, yum! I’ve already started using the hair & body butter (to the right) on my body and edges. It smells AMAZING!
How are you protecting your natural hair this winter? Have you ever gotten a crochet braids cut before?
