and another thing…

On top of tall, football player-esque, funny, nice teeth…can I also have someone who can braid hair?!?

I mean SERIOUSLY! I FINALLY attempted a braidout today. That was not FUN! Not fun at all! No wonder I haven’t styled my hair in a while.

First…Mr. Nicolay Phonte got a bath.

He was NOT a fan. But he got that good hur…maybe 1a or 1b…so he just needs a shampoo some leave in conditionder and a brush. (lol…j/k) If I ever miss brushing/combing my hair I will just pick up the dog. That mess got tired real quick!

Ok…my turn! (damn dog)

I washed my hair…but first I did a scalp treatment that was pretty good…from what I can tell…so far. Diluted Dr. Bronner’s…followed by my moisturising serum…then it was time to start braiding.
Ugh…goodness…ACK! I HATE doing my own hair!!! H.A.T.E.I.T.

The results were cool because I like big hair and all…but all of that work? Ya’ll can keep that!

I do like my hair better this way (making the size of my locks less annoying)…but that extra work is for the birds!

ADDENDUM: (1/13/08) After all of that belly aching and whining…I did a braidout AGAIN tonight so it could be extra fresh for the Tyra Show tomorrow. I am such a nut…

The set in the photos took FOR-EV-ER and I only let it set for 3 or 4 hours with no holding spray…it would have probably been ok for the show…but just in case. At least this time the braids were bigger and it only took 20 minutes. Who knows…this may become a regular thing

    Cluizel,Your braidout looks fabulous and your locks have matured beautifully. I know what your mean about styling though. It takes a lot of work but at least, for me, it last about 2 weeks.
