Since Monday is rapidly approaching, I might as well reflect on my weekend. This one was a good one, though it really was focused on one main thing—my hair. Saturday was another wash day. Flashback to three weeks back when I took my twists out and I could not find my favorite deep conditioner posted below:
Therefore, my hair was perturbed and uncooperative that initial wash day. The following weekend, I still could not find that stuff (I usually re-up at TJ Maxx). As I shopped with my fiance who was in town visiting, he looked perplexed and relayed that I should just grab another kind of conditioner. *Sigh* I had to explain to him that it didn’t work like that and that my hair was choosy and not fickle when it came to what products she gels with (pun intended). The following week, I was in Sprouts getting some more “goodies” for my Daniel fast when I went to the hair aisle out of curiosity. Ta-da! There she was, my lovely Giovanni <3.
After deep conditioning, I had the style below in mind which I had been eyeing for quite a while:
To achieve this goddess braid, I finally followed the directions in the video, even though I reallllllly didn’t feel like doing much after washing and deep conditioning. I gave in and blow dried my hair on medium so that I could get my hair stretch out a bit. I’ve attempted the look above before without stretching my hair, but my curls always made the braid look lumpy and sloppy and I didn’t have the length I needed due to shrinkage. Luckily, my hair was in mini sections any way, so it was actually a pretty quick blow dry:
I copied the video as much as I could and was able to get my style for the week. I will wear this to the gym and work and hopefully, it will hold up. I am not very good with my hands, but I’m going to try to attempt more styles in the future after exploring more in the YouTube matrix.
