Been a while I did a post on my natural hair, so here!
My hair is 4 years plus, I currently have fairly long hair ( past my shoulders when stretched) and I barely wear my hair out in other styles besides my bun. If I’m not having my bun, its 10-12 plaits for wigs or I twist it all up.
All week I’ve been experiencing shrinkage so I just decided to have it done instead of daily manipulating it.
I went to my friend McCarthy’s salon for a quick wash and style.
I opted for some side plaits and mini twists. Using just my hair with no extensions.
I call it my pre christmas hair, I plan to wear it for three weeks to a month! My life is so busy at the moment that I literally have no time for hair, makeup or daily beauty routines. I just want to shower, get dressed and leave home.
I brought along my array of hair butters and pudding, but to my surprise the stylist felt it would weigh down my hair so she used only a lock and twist gel to twist .
Once I washed my hair it was left damp /semi dry , she applied a menthol based hair cream to my scalp (Damatol) and began to twist. When the process was done, she applied some hair sheen and that was it.
I felt so young when she was done, took years off my face and got lots of compliments. I’m so excited about this hair-do because its full yet light weight, lasts long and when I’m bored I can wear my wigs over it.
Duration: 3hours (start to finish), one stylist.
Salon: First impression McCarthy salon, E338 Ikota shopping complex V.G.C Ajah Lagos
