Well I decided to braid my hair up. I haven’t done my own braids in a minute. I will admit that I wasn’t looking forward to it, but it turned out pretty good. I sat down this past Tuesday night, put on the movies, and started braiding. I didn’t want large or long braids (although now I wish I would have done it a little longer), so it didn’t take long. I’ll never wear it down, so they didn’t need to be dense. My hair is thinner than I ever remember, so I’ll needed to take extra care not to pull too tight. I would like a hairline when it’s all over…
Here are the results:
I watched a few videos on YouTube for some style inspiration. Next time, I’ll do them a little longer for a larger knot. I am satisfied and my hair is out of sight, out of mind for now. I think I’ll wear braids until July of 2013. We’ll see.
