I quickly packed up and headed up north to be with my family. Before this all happened however, I had just created a style that was to last a week and give me lots of transformation options. Though I didn't get to really wear it out and play with it I did take a few shots to share. Hope you like!
I cornrowed the front and double-strand twisted the back. Two of the cornrows go forward and connect at the base of two cornrows that go backwards, creating a loop that looks like a bang. I used only Palmers coconut oil formula replenishing hair milk, which I have used before and love for braid sets. I used a little rosemary oil on my scalp.
I took the twists out on the morning I went to the airport. It had been 3 and a half days. Sorry these were the only flicks I got :-/
Then when I got back home I took the cornrows out that were facing forward. I would have worn them out for a few more days like this. The braid out was very defined and soft.
Remember to spend time with your family and learn as much as you can from them while you can. I talked to my Dad's mom a lot when I would see her and she told me wonderful stories about my family. I wish I had more time with her.
