Beautifully Curled: African Hair Threading Updates Before Removal


I thought it would be nice to show how Z's Ghana plaits evolved over the period of their installation. Many times, we tend to post pictures of a hairstyle freshly done, but in reality, over time (or a day or two later), and after enduring the life of an active preschooler, styles do get frizzy. Nevertheless, in our household, we embrace ALL aspects of natural hair--fuzz, frizz, and flyaways. That is just part of our natural territory and we run with it! We will not be defined by how well/long a style stays "kept" and frizz-free. The idea I am promoting is freedom of expression and not bondage to other people's standards and judgment. Remember, we are striving for SELF-confidence. :-)

The Ghana plaits have been wonderful for the most part. I already discussed my pros/cons/proposals about the African hair threading technique. Now we are just riding the course until I remove the threads soon. The plaits are still so soft and have gotten plump over time due to humidity, regular moisturizing, and shrinkage. I actually like them more as they "age".

I noticed that some of her barrettes are getting caught in her hair. The reasons could be due to the increased frizziness of Z's plaits and the design of the barrettes. The inexpensive beauty world accessories are not designed well and can have some rugged edges and corners. This will probably be one of the few and final times I put so many barrettes in her hair because of the possibility of damage occurring from the barrettes rubbing against her hair. Besides, my little girl is not as little anymore. She is definitely growing more and more into a beautiful "older" little girl! ;-) She will still be my baby nevertheless...
