Twisted bangs…so they’re soooo cute!
It’s really great when you are just “feeling” your hair; I know cause I certainly am today. This started about two days ago after being in and out of the rain for a couple of days, my hair was getting rather frizzy. Now as endearing as my fuzzy wuzzies were, I decided to touch up my hair and in doing so I came up with the idea to put some three strand twists in the top and give myself some bangs. Well I did one and I didn’t quite like it. Hmmm…what was wrong? I know, they needed some curl. That’s when I put them in a couple of bantu knots. When I took them out the next morning, I had these cute spiral curls. That turned out so cute so I wore my hair like that to work. Ok…they didn’t hold up very well cause it continuted to rain and be really humid all day Friday. Well, last night, Friday evening that is, I decided to do one more three-strand twist. This morning I took them out and wallah, my spiral bang look was cute and complete and that’s when I really started “feeling” my hair.
What I really like about my them is that the three-strand twist makes twists very tight, compact and rope like, as opposed to thick and fluffy. So after I unwrwapped my bantu knots, which circumvented the shrinkage, they almost took the appearance of dreads. While I’m not a big fan of dreads, I did like this particular aesthetic. In addition, I liked the way my bangs softened my hairline. And, my hair is long enough that once the sprirals loosen a bit, they hang half way down my face. The length frames my face the way I’ve always wanted it to.
Grow hair grow! I’m shooting for sixteen inches by year’s end. Not sure that I’ll make it but that’s my goal.
Anyhoo, since I’m thinking my hair is toooo cute, I just had to take some pics…especially since I don’t take a lot these days. So I commandered my mom (bad arm and all) to take them for me. She was a pretty good sport about it all — prolly cause I took a whole lot of pics of her too — and got some really good pics. At the moment, I put them back into bantu knots, which look like little horns…lol. If I can get some pics tomorrow, I’ll try to do so before I take them out and then show so pics of what the spirals look like before they’ve had a chance to fall a little bit. In the meantime, here are all the pics we took yesterday, (sorry about the duplicate in this grouping) all inclusive of a couple of good length shots. Just click on one of the thumbnails in the gallery for a larger view.
Everytime I look at these picks I can’t help but admire how nicely my hair is coming along and it makes me smile. Y’all feel me?
