"Roller-Set and Braid-Out at 4 years & 4 months"



Greetings, finally I have gotten around to finally posting stuff about hair :) This is a photo of a roller-set in the front and braid out from the top of my head to the back. Since my hair is getting longer and thicker I can't roll my entire head anymore because my arms get too tired so I thought I would try half and half. I actually like the results, let's see how long it will last (smile).

Your hair looks fabulous. Sorry to hear it is so difficult to roll now. I can't wait to get to that length, but maybe I can. You look wonderful. It is worth the extra work.

I am loving your hair!

ooh Abena! Just gorgeous is all I can say. Congrats on the anniversary and the length is lovely! Did u see the last issue of the Sisterlocks magazine? Dr Cornwell was giving styling tips for longer hair. Also I saw a great clip on utube with styling ideas for long hair. I think someone mentioned it on LIU as well the other day. Just go to utube and type in Sisterlocks. Forget what the lady is called but she has a video business. Your hair is such an inspiration to me. Waiting for that length myself. :)

I understand the length and arms tired thing. Even though my locs aren't that mature, I have that issue anyway @ 13 months. I started with locs being installed @ 8 inches. so I do that very same thing, I roller set the back and braid the front !!! LOL and it turns out absolutely beautiful !!!

Your hair looks great! I know the rolling process is a pain but the reward is worth it. Especially when hubby takes notice :-)

rYou look so cute!!!!!

Jenn- Wow, I did not know you started off with 8 inches, so you know exactly what I mean :) But as some of the other ladies have mentioned, it is worth it when your hair turns out beautifully.

Twoislandsgirls- I am so happy that you stopped by, haven't heard from you in a while....when is the baby due? How are you? BTW- thanks for the compliments and encouragement :)

Cherie- Hey Sis, thanks :) You should try this style, I think it would look wonderful on you...(remember roll the top and braid the back, and I want to see photos-smile)

I know I've been MIA--so much going on . . . but I just wanted to stop and let you know you look lovely! Your locs look super healthy and shiny and I love the style. Keep up the good work :) Jeri (it's been so long since I've blogged I don't even remember my password!!!)

Chosen Vessel {Abena} said...

Kwasmrs- Thank you, thank you :)

Jeri- Oh boy have I missed you, I would love to see some new photo's of Jordyn, but seeing since you forgot your password, I guess that will not be happening too soon (smile). I hope you are enjoying being a mommy :) Blessings to you and thanks for the compliments. Hey, how is your hair? I have heard different things about when you are pregnant and after about how it affects your hair. What was your experience?
