This weekend some crazy things happened…
I watched the Mayweather fight. His athleticism is unmatched in boxing. Period.
I did A LOT of laundry and packed for Chicago. See this post to learn more about why I’m going there.
And I installed loc extensions.
Kanekalon Braiding Hair
A rattail comb
I followed a YouTube video provided by Cassandra Beccai … but I had to adjust a little. I moisturized my hair first by using in the afore mentioned products. I used kanekalon hair to install large twists and twisted my twists (tongue twister) with Marley hair. To finish them off, I wrapped the hair in such a way that it would go back up the loc (if that makes sense at all) and burned the end of it with a lighter. Then, when I noticed a few of them unraveling I burned the actual ends of the locs. In total I have about 30 locs (used large parts in the middle of my head because well… it’s the middle). Took about 6 hours total and I divided the install up into two days (3 hours each day).
My patience was definitely tested and I passed, but I’ve been debating whether or not I really want to keep them. They are very cute, yet they are also heavy and hard to style. If I can come up with some cute styles by today… maybe tomorrow, I will keep them. If not – snip, snip. #noregrets
