My Hair + Video | TWA Transformation in Minutes

4 Jul 2016 Lagos, Nigeria

Short hair can be a drag and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
I've been on both ends of the divide and I know, lol. No regrets about my long 'fro but my hair is growing too fast and my brain is struggling to catch up. It's trying though but I managed to come up with this totally rad way of sprucing up my TWA when I get tired of it being an afro.

I get bored easily. Sue me! Then come round and thank me for coming up with this easy peesy TWA style that can be done in less time than it takes to paint your nails *grin*

Oh alright, enough already Barbara. I'll tell you all about it.
One morning, I was using the loo and playing with my hair while wondering what I was going to wear to work. I did a little plait but there was no time for any other one so I quickly loosed it when I was done bathing. I loved the texture it left and wondered what it would look like if my whole head was randomly plaited. A couple of days later while watching TV with the fam, I decided to just plait my entire head of hair. I knew it would have a texture but it was my first time doing it with a TWA so I was curious. I loosened it the next day before work and lo and behold, the texture I'd been craving for appeared.

So in the grand scheme of Natural hair types, my hair is supposed to be 4C (i think) but it has a way of looking like cool dreads or locs or clumps of hair a couple of days after a braidout or twistout and even finger coils. With this random braid and loose method, I get the effect in minutes especially when the hair is dry. Just be sure and be gentle with it while finger detangling to braid.

Watch the video below, see the pictures of my hair after and let me know if you'll be trying this out any time soon
