It’s official! I am putting yarn braids in my hair! I’ve wanted to do this for awhile, but I knew it was going to be very time consuming. Now that I’m on summer vacation I have time to do it. After watching two informative and motivational tutorials, I decided to go for it. I went to Micheal’s Craft Store this morning and bought two spools of Red Heart Super Saver black yarn and one spool of purple yarn of the same brand. I’m going to have 2 -4 purple braids! This yarn is acrylic (instead of wool-it’s vegan! lol) and dye-free. I will be able to wash my hair without worrying about discoloring the yarn. I’m REALLY excited about this! Not only is this hairstyle super cost-efficient ($9 total), but I get to do it myself. I haven’t added extensions to my hair in years. I used to wear braids all the time in my youth and just about all the ladies in my family can do hair. I like doing my own hair because I can control the tightness of the braids (if you’ve ever had braids you know what I mean). I’m also looking forward to a hairstyle that resembles locs. I’ve always pondered getting locs, but I don’t want to bind my hair in that way anytime soon. However, I love the way locs look. Anyway, I anticipate this hairstyle will take 2-3 days so I will post pictures of the final product soon!
