For the past year I have been saying that I wanted braids in my hair and that I wanted to do them myself. I am constantly wanting to learn new things. Also I just didn’t want to spend hours in a chair or money to get my hair done like I have done in the past. So for me it was just best for me to do it myself. I decided to watch a few YouTube videos to figure out the best technique for me. Then I got to work the next morning at 5a.m. I wanted to have them done before The Husband got home so I could get his honest opinion about the style.
It took me about 6 hours. I had no idea that putting them in was going to be this hard. I mean I am used to doing my own hair but this took some dedication. I felt like my arms were going to fall off by the time I finished. When I finally finished I was a little disappointed because they didn’t turn out the way I expected. I had to remember that it was my first time and it wouldn’t be perfect but I still wanted them to be better. So for most of last week I wore my hair in updos. I was just happier that way. Well to be honest I had to get used to them. Also I was just happy to be able to try a bunch of different styles.
While I wasn’t happy with the results at first it is definitely growing on me. I plan on keeping them for another week or two. I plan on doing more to get practice. I can’t wait to find another hairstyle to learn to do. I am actually proud of myself. The Husband likes them as well. He prefers them down rather than up. I think as I get better I will love them even more.
