Hair and Fashion

Before I had kids, I had the freedom to wash, condition, and style my hair whenever I wanted. AND, before I left New Orleans, I had the luxury of going to the beauty salon when I didn’t want to do my hair myself. Well all that has changed! So I try to do what’s both quick and healthy for my hair. In reality, one of those usually wins out… (hint: efficient). So because I have less time to treat my hair as often as I’d like to, I like to use protective styles to hold me over for a while until I need to treat it again. My current favorite protective style for nearly two years now is crochet braids. I have alway liked having braids in my hair, but individual braids (for the amount of hair I have) take about six to seven hours! Ain’t nobody got time for dat, especially mothers! So instead, I prefer to have my hair braided down to my scalp, and have ready-made braids crocheted onto my hair. Hair protected (check), wake up and go (check), and all in two hours tops (check check check!!). Check out the pictures below!
