Protective Style : Corporate Dreads

Hello Lovelies

Guess who Big chopped?! *points to self*. I'm officially no more a transition-er. I cut my relaxed ends of three days ago [February 21st]. I had one of those "don't think before you act moments" because I've been thinking too much about it for a while now and I always think myself out of actually doing it. My hair growth has been stagnant for about 3 years now so i stopped relaxing my hair a year and half ago and eventually made up my mind to cut it on Friday last week.
Speaking of big chop , transitioning and natural hair, as I was cutting off my relaxed ends on Friday a woman walks into the salon with natural hair [almost bra-length] and goes" I'm tired of this natural hair, I want to relax my hair" in  my mind I'm like "Nooooooo don't, I need your type of hair" but I couldn't say it out loud before she gives me the "mind your business what do you know" look. You wouldn't believe after she relaxed her hair she almost started crying and she started  blaming me for not warning her against relaxing her hair. Well I just apologized and told her she still looked beautiful with relaxed hair.
I asked my brother to help me snap my hair and because he was watching originals this was the best he could do ..urgh!. I'll definitely post better photos when I take out my dreads
I decided to lock my hair because its almost time for my final project defence and Final exams as an undergraduate; I won't have time to take care of my natural hair or even weaves right now and I think I made a very good decision. This is one hairstyle I would Love to do again and again 

PROS
Its not painful
It doesn't cut your hair even the edges
It can be washed
It lasts for about 2 months 
Its not heavy, therefore styling it is very easy
Its beautiful ^.^

CONS
I haven't experienced any but if I do I'll be sure to let you know!


I made it at Charles Place 
Jeho-Shammah Plaza Beside Ogba Garage, Ogba

  4. You look amazing. I'm still transitioning, doing the big chop is such a big move. I once wanted dreads also, but of course my parents didn't allow me to get them. - your newest follower (justaise.blogspot.com)

    They suit you. I've been seeing alot of these lately. (With my current hair status) I'd really like to try the marley twists. You should!

    I've been thinking abou transitioning but I know when. Everyone I've spoken to say similar lines ' I just cut it and I didnt regret it' . Let me know how your journey is going gerrl

  12. Erm, I wouldn't recommend keeping the faux locs in that long o. Because your hair can actually get matted up, and it could become a disaster when you take it off. Also make sure to keep taking care of your hair - regular cleansing and moisturizing.
