Both Miss Fizz and I currently have our hair in yarn braids (beg her to give una pictures). I did mine on Wednesday night, first just one to see how it looked, then I realized I had to do all of them. Now, some of you can braid half your head one day and continue another day. Not me!
Once I'd started, they needed to be finished. I did not time it wisely, starting at around 8pm and finishing around 1:30am. Thank goodness United States of Tara was on Netflix! I had to add extra yarn when I reached the end of the loc, and I knotted and burnt the ends of the braids. Didn't really bother about being precise with the length and thickness of the braids, figured I'd keep a rough look to it :)
Personally, I love it! It's like having long locs! I just need to remember to keep greasing my scalp so my dandruff doesn't kick in.
