Now if it's a wig or something, of course not, but I mean for a long-term style like extension braids or twists. Those seem to work for me and my schedule, but it can take 6, 7, or even 8 hrs to install, depending on the stylist(s), the size of the braids or twists, and if any interruptions occur. I refound a stylist that twisted my hair last year and thankfully, she had an appointment for the Thursday before Good Friday. Even though I did get home around 1:30 a.m. (because my appointment was after work and I live in a different city from my work and this appointment), I was ready to give up that time rather than having to interrupt my spring break to sit somewhere for that long.
We caught up on everything in the world. You know, that's what you do when you get your hair done. I started falling asleep on the second twist, and the stylist was like, "Hey, it's too early for that!" LOL Trust me, I was already sleepy before I came.
Anyhoo, the stylist gave me tips on preserving my edges and I couldn't be more pleased with my protective style. If all goes well, it will last me until it's time to send the kiddos home for the summer. And that, ladies and gentlemen (if there are any gentlemen reading this post), is why I particularly enjoy this style. I opted for a sleeker hair because the kinkier hair is more like mine and I often have trouble separating the two when I wear it for that long.
I have to keep my hair moisturized, so I'm using my trusty spray bottle and mixing in rosewater and vegetable glycerin. It's a true spray and go situation. Love it and the rose petals smell so refreshing!
p.s. If you noticed, I've changed my comment moderation system because of so much spam. I'm a bit protective of my space. You know what I mean. :-)
Later gaters and Happy Easter!
