Length Check

Hey y'all! I just took Kurly T's braids out and decided to see how long her hair was. So here is our first official length check. It has grown so much since last year. Yay for length retention! I think moisturizing and sealing along with protective styling and low manipulation have attributed to our progress. While I am happy with the length, I am more focused on healthy hair. Enjoy!

Cornrows and Boxbraids Remix

I've been stalking YouTube like you wouldn't believe. I did my Big Chop back in January and so I needed some tips quick! I ran across a video of a style that I wanted to try for Kurly T. It's by AfrikanHairGod and he is really talented. I've added the video below. He did flat twists, but I'm not good at those yet, so I did cornrows and box braids. I'm also trying to give Kurly T's ends a break from beading too often so this style was perfect. I washed, conditioned and banded overnight and styled the next day on stretched hair. Here is my version. Hope you likey! Happy Styling!


Products Used:
Mixed Chicks Shampoo and Deep Conditioner
Giovanni Direct Leave In mixed with water (spray bottle)
Castor oil to seal
Taliah Waajid Kinky, Wavy, Natural Herbal Style & Shine to style (Love this stuff)
