My horrible hair story10:16 AM
Getting braids is probably the best thing I personally can offer to my own hair. But the problem is that you sit hours getting it done and hours taking it out and those "hours" i don`t have. Come to think of it, you can have braids for like two months and if you really take care of it your hair can really grow. And I mean really grow. Mind you, i wouldn`t advice someone to get small tiny braids if you know you really care for your hair.
I remember back then in Nigeria when I went to braid my hair at a hair saloon. This woman told me she is very good at it and i paid like twice the amount that`s normally charged. Relying I was in "good hands". I sat there for almost a day (way too long time) braiding my hair, thinking it`s cool she knows what she`s doing. Long story cut short, after she`d finished I raised up my head to look at the mirror. First notice: I couldn`t move my neck. The hair was tight, i mean really tight. It felt like someone was cooking hot soup on my head. Second notice: the hair was so nice and shiny but it looked overworked. Third notice: She had added too much "vaseline" on the hair. I was so angry.
I got home and everyone liked the hair and then they saw how I was hurting. I started thinking of what to do, so I decided it was going to cool down after the night rest. I managed to sleep somehow after four hours of pain in the night. Before day break, i couldn`t take the pain any longer. Took out the hair and I noticed all my hair in the front was gone. That was probably my worst hair story ever. Still thinking about that pain `till today.
