Hairstyle Lounge on African Naturalistas - Are you courageous enough to wear this style

Hello ladies. How's everything going on? Mehn, I wish I was as uppity in this edition of Hairstyle Lounge, like I was in the last edition. I have an event coming up soon, and I have been so tied down with its organistion and all.

The good news is that this month, I was still able to cook up one style for you guys to view, and it is quite unusual.

After taking down the second hairstyle of my back to back hit last edition, I decided that you know what, I really miss twists. It has been ages since I twisted my hair, and I wanted to do it, especially because I wanted something that would allow me reach every hair strand when moisturising.

So I went to O'Naturals, communicated my desires, and the twists were done. This was after we washed with my medicated shampoo, and a regular moisturising shampoo. We steamed my hair with African Naturalistas Deep Conditioning Mayonnaise, which they sell at the salon, and they applied another treatment for my scalp, which made it tingly and soothing. We then steamed the hair for 30 minutes.

I was supposed to trim my hair before twisting because my ends were weak and scraggly. I have never seen them that way before. But we decided to wait till my next salon visit before trimming.

TERRIBLE MISTAKE! Although the twists came out well, the ends just looked dull. The hair was tucked away most time, and what was supposed to be my breather hairstyle became my Alhaja hairstyle, lol.

Two weeks later, I was back at O'Naturals. The twists were taken down there. They used African Naturalistas Moisturising and Detangling Conditioner to thoroughly detangle the hair. And then, like last time, we proceeded to wash, deep condition, treat my scalp, and steam.

I had learnt from the previous time. This time, there was no taking chances. We trimmed the hair. In fact, we trimmed a lot of the hair. Far more than 1 inch, I don't know if it was up to 2 inches. Even though I have lost hair again, at least, my hair is healthier.

Omozo decided that we should go for another threading style. This was supposed to be a modified traditional threading, in that attachment was added to the body, to make the threading look fact. Since I don't like foreign objects on my head most times, we discarded the idea of attachment, plus I don't like lengthy salon visits, even though I still sat in the salon for HOURS to get this done. And then we went way way back...

Remember this thread of our childhood days?

That was what we used. I can't remember when last I saw the thread, lol. Anyway, by the time we were done, I looked like a proper school girl of the oldies. But you know I know how to add swags with earrings and heels, so I wasn't scared of looking overtly religious. In fact, it was the reason I didn't take facial pictures that day cos I had left my earrings at home, and face was extraordinarily oily, without any iota of makeup.

This was all we had






Imagine what the front view would have looked like.

Anyway, 8 days later, which was 2 days ago, this was what it looked like.


As you can see, the front had a large brush backwards. This was to make it look more mordern.







I still have this style on, and don't intend to take it down anytime soon, especially considering that I had to sit for so long to get it done. It fits my face well, and my giant loop earrings complement it well, Moreso, it protects my hair, stretches it, and fetches me a lot of compliments. So who am I to complain?

What of you? Do you like it? If yes, what about it do you like? Do you think you are courageous enough to carry this style that was previously considered to be just for school children and some religious folks? Lemme have your thought in the comment section.

    1. In what way? It's quite soft and easy to sleep in. Or do you mean personal discomfort in wearing your hair out like that?

  3. I loved threading a lot then in secondary school, especially the way it stretched the hair when taken down.
