My Hair: A Simple Sunday braidout & Sleek i-Divine Original

Hello lovelies,
Happy Monday to you all.
I have been so off and on these past weeks and for that I apologise. I have an exciting new project I am working on which I can't wait for you guys to see. It is going to be fun and exciting *hush Barbara*. Lol. So I won't say anything about it again until next month when it is unveiled.

On to today's post. Like I recently posted on my facebook page, I have taken the care of my natural hair seriously and decided to forego braids until further notice.I am one of those very lazy natural hair carriers who just go on from one day to the next with no particular attention to the hair especially after putting it in a protective style. I co-wash in twists or plaits often just because it is the convenient thing to do. I deep condition like once in 2 months etc. (let's not go on about my sins please *covers face*)

Anyway I have repented and even gone ahead to play around with styles. I must say that they don't come out like I expect but hey one must start somewhere na.
My twists never stay twisted and so I resorted to trying out a braidout first. it came out sooooo pretty I am hooked. 
It was on a sunday. I had just done my usual co-wash on plaits the night before and decided to give braidouts a try. It came out poofy though because my hair hadn't properly dried before taking down the plaits.
but I still loved the way it came out
Even though sundays are one of the days I absolutely don't do without wearing makeup (I am a staunch believer in looking my absolute best when going to the House of God), i usually have my makeup on really simple and light. This was one of those light, simple, pretty makeup days.

My brows were all over the place...as usual, lol. But I managed to tame them with the clear mascara.

So, I have been experimenting with different sizes of plaits for my braidouts, learnt to seal my ends and even tried the LOC method. I daresay I am becoming a veritable naturalista, lol.
