Hey dolls *long sigh*. It’s been a long 1 mth and 1 week since I put in these kinky twists for protective styling. I really hope that I see some improvements in my hair’s health or I’m gonna be reaaaally disappointed. I know they dont look bad. Its not how they look that’s making me sad…I JUST MISS MY AFRO * bursts into tears*. I just really hope I can make it out to my 2 mth mark. This is torture!
Girl I feel you! While braid extensions were a tool that I used frequently at the start of my natural hair journey, I quickly grew tired of them. When they were in, I really missed having access to my hair. Plus, the weight of the extensions wreaked havoc on my hairline, and made it really tough to keep my scalp clean. Still, they can be an effective length retention tool for some naturals.
Do you still use extensions? Why or why not? How do you deal with ‘fro withdrawal’ while extensions are in?
