Let it Fro, Let it Fro

Hi Friends!

I guess you could say that I'm in a good mood today. Why? For no real reason, really. If I had to attribute it to anything it would probably be that my fro is free to roam the planet again! Okay that sounded weird. Let me be a little more clear. For the last two weeks, I rocked yarn braids. I did them myself (my first time ever braiding my own hair, much less braiding it with something).

It was a weird experience. And I think it took me a total of 8 hours to do it myself. I felt so miserable with each strand I interlocked, feeling as if I would never make it to the end. They weren't perfect, but they looked decent.

But recently they started to look bad. Like hair coming out the braid, new growth on fleek, kind of bad. So last night, after 2 hours, I took all of the braids out.

                                   Now watch me whip...

Now I'm rocking my fro, and I guess it's giving me an increased sense of self-confidence. I'm also wearing a handmade African print maxi dress, which has me feeling extra royal!  I did a length check last night and my hair at the top, now stretches to my jawline! (Which I also just realised this morning, that I don't have much of. Like seriously, my face goes straight into my neck; not much separation or definition going on there).

                                         Selfie at work!

Don't mind the fluffiness of the puff. My hair was moisturised using the LOC method this morning around 7 am and is totally dry now! I've always been cursed with dry hair. Nothing I do seems to work. If you guys have any suggestions, I'd totally appreciate that!

Leave your suggestions in the comment section below and have an awesome day!
