New Do: Cornrows

How old am I? Eight? This could be my inner tomboy resurfacing...or pure laziness as a result of my senior semester pandemonium. Help. Me.
I blew my hair out prior.

I was locked into two strand twist mode for about two months...it wasn't cute..nor did it suffice the time I needed to be working on other things..other than my hair.

Thought about a sew-in so I would actually still look like something, but I'm still suffering through image issue and constant "lump and bump" paranoia about wearing one. Literally everyone on campus is running around with some variation of poetic justice braids or marley twists and what can I say...I'm an individual...

The most exciting part is :) all that hair that you see in these pictures :) it's AAALLL mine :) I remember before when I would get cornrows I'd always have to add hair to be satisfied with the length. It was refreshing to see my hair like this...because I never have! COMPLETELY compromises for the fact that I look and feel like a 14-year-old Bow Wow..but life goes on and hair grows long.

I do NOT brush, moisturize, comb, gel, anything to my "baby hairs" honest to God...they just lay that way *shrugs*

Post blowing it out it took no time; about an hour and a half max. As someone said on Facebook, my edges are "snatched" (not quite sure how I feel about that comment yet). As my "kitchen beautician" was doing them it didn't feel tight but upon peeping in the mirror immediately after...yeeaaa...lol God willing I'm pushing for 2-3 weeks. Not exactly sure what my "regimen" will be as far as tending to them...the plan for now is just to douse the ends in oil everyday and sleep with a satin bonnet. The End.
