Angola. November 1975-2015♥

There’s literally an Independence Celebration Party every single weekend for the whole Month. 40 years is kinda of a big deal…

Just got my hair did and 3 people straight up told me at the most recent party that I should change my hair ‘cause I’d look better with a medium to long sew in or wig. I wasn’t offended or anything really , There’s nothing wrong in givin an opinion.

 Just didn’t like the way/tone they had said it to me

…?

You know when u walk away from something and just think about a reply later. ( ̄。 ̄)~zzz  

Anyways, keeping my hair like this for as long as I want to. I Love weave too but like… Lemme work my twist’s for now shall ya.  (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ

  • Me: I want to put crochet braids in my hair and leave it so I can gain some growth.
  • Scalp: Nah, fam. I'm dirty. Take this shit out after 3 weeks or I'll itch you to death.
  • Me: Okay then. I'll put my own hair in mini twists and leave it. Those I can wash still done.
  • Hair: I will start to loc on yo' ass. Don't play with me.
  • Me: Jumbo twists? Open styles?
  • Hair: I am 4c, I love to tangle and shrink and I REJECT moisture at every turn. AMEN!!
  • Me: *cries
A tip to black girls

So, you wanna get your hair braided (or kinky twists or jumbo braids or literally anything with extensions):

1) Wash your hair before you go. Preferably the night before, you should thoroughly comb, wash, and deep condition your hair so it’ll be strong and tangle free.

2) Comb it through again at the salon. If you need to bring your own hair lotion and comb, then do it. Just make sure that you do a good, clean job of it or else the hair stylist will rip your hair out.

3) Make sure your hair type is actually comparable with the hair you’re buying. Mine is that coarse straight-from-Africa type because I’m first generation, so almost every type of hair I buy “is no good because your hair is so thick”, according to my braider(s). Some are too fine and soft (like this one I have now) for unpermed, unrelaxed hair. This is important because it directly relates to the longevity of your braids or twists.

4)Make sure you buy enough.

4) Pop a painkiller beforehand. It helps with any pain you might feel.

5) Please be sure to eat something. My hair took seven hours+ and I didn’t eat anything till the end, which I regret because I started feeling sick and dizzy in the middle of it. Most African hair braiding places have a restaurant or convenience store nearby that aren’t too too expensive.

6) Speak up about what you don’t like. They do what they want with certain parts if you don’t say anything, like burn the ends instead of hot water treating (I had one woman try to do that to my kinky twists, which looked horrible anyway). They could start the base of the braid as if they were doing cornrows, which they did with mine (which I also now pissed about). But if they’re using a fine-toothed comb or destroying your edges or just pulling to hard, they’ll stop most of the time if you tell them.

Also, holding the base of the braid while she does the rest of it is a good way to alleviate pain without getting in the way.
