I had to attend a mixer for my MBA program today so I decided to do something with these braids (I mean, I did pay for them right). So I took them out of the ponytail I've been wearing them in for the past week and twisted the 2 front sections back into 4 large flat twists.
Here's the next comparative root shot. I've been measuring my hair and it seems to grow about an inch a month! It is 3 weeks now and look at how much new growth I have! Scalp is gone.
O.k. so here is the look I sported. I parted the front into 2 sections and then did one large flat twist (Twist 1) on each side. I secured each twist with a large bobbypin aimed back into and under the twist. I then did the smaller flat twists (Twist 2) on each side and secured the same way. I did nothing to the ends but if you're curious I have cut off like 3 or 4 inches of these things. See how long they were 3 weeks ago.
p.s. I took down another braid…I guess I'm up to 5 or 6 now.
