Hello loverssssss!

How is the going going?

If you follow us on Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter (wait, why aren’t you following us?! JK, social media links are at the bottom) SO. As I was saying. If you follow us, you kind of know what we have been up to, what I did with my hair this weekend.

I wanted curls, so I thought I’d get a perm rod set that would last me all week. It did not last all week, but it lasted me long enough to go to church, and go on my date thereafter. Good enough for me. 🙂

Just a quick hair update. I’m wearing crochet braids again. This time, I used 2 packs of Noble Afro Kinky (or was it Afro Twist?) Braid. The hair cost me 750 naira a pack at Marian Market.

My ever helpful roommate F did my cornrows and I attached the hair myself, with the aid of a big bobby pin. It took me 3 episodes of Once Upon A Time,that is, about 2 hours to do my crochet braiding. Continue reading “Crochet Braids Again”
