You remember that twist out fro I was rocking all last week? Maaaaayne all that daggone hair got HOT real quick! They claim that our hair grows up and out to protect our hair from the hot African sun way back in the day.
You see them sweat beads on my forehead? I don't know what they are talking about or if "they" have ever wore a fro before because the only thing all this hair on head does is make me hot! I'm going to need for them to reexamine that theory.
All I know is that hot fro had to go! As always, I got inspiration in the middle of the night to style my hair . I started braiding my hair around 10:30 pm and finished at 4ish in the morning. I saw Simon Haley enlist into WWI and finished up with Alex Haley saying, "You ole African! I found you! Kunta Kinte! I found you!" Basically it took me almost half a century to finish.

I didn't part straight across this time. I just grabbed small pieces and braided my hair. Didn't even look at the back of my hair as I was parting out pieces. I like this method way more than parting rows straight across because it is less frustrating. As far as appearance, please let me know if you disagree but I believe that it does not look messy or that bad:
Me thinks I will be doing this from now on. One of the main reasons I avoid box braids is because I hate trying to part my hair. If you haven't tried grabbing and braiding sections when you do box braids I would highly, highly, highly recommend it.
Common Question I get about my braids:
How do you get the braids to curl up?
I don't know. My braids just magically curl up like that. I'm not lying. Maybe I braid too tight or something but my braids naturally form a "C" shape. The back is actually flattened out because I slept on them last night.
Thanks for stopping by! That's all folks!!!
