it's the beginning of the semester...

…and I've taken my braids out. I had wanted them to last at least an extra week so that hair wouldn't be an issue for the first week of school, but they just weren't up to it. But they did good! They stood up to five months of beaches, pools, amusement parks, and sleeping with no scarf, so I definitely got my money's worth. I'd considered having my edges redone, but the $60 wasn't worth it when they'd be in for less than two weeks.

So I've just been wearing a wash and go pulled back with my headband and that was fine. I know I need to keep my hair stretched, so this weekend is for doing my hair. I know I'm getting a late start, but I've shampooed and am sitting under my steamer right now. :) I'll let the condish penetrate for a little while before moisturizing and braiding my hair. I like to wait until my hair is dried before I start twisting, but I won't have time for that. Since I want to do really small twists, I'll twist half tonight and then finish in the morning before work. I don't go in until 1, so I'm hoping I can wake up early enough to finish. :P I'll post some pictures of the finished product.

I recently bought two new hair products (well, three), so I'll post some reviews once I've used them.

In other news… I am super excited because I am getting a weave in a week! Yesss! I'd mentioned it in a few posts before but I wasn't exactly sure whether or not I'd actually be able to do it. Well, my appointment has been booked and I've already bought the hair. I got a curly texture so I'm hoping it blends well with my own. I am seriously so eager, I wish I'd booked my appointment a week earlier! Just 10 more days! 

Anyway, just a quick update. I'll update tomorrow with how my twists came out and of course when I get my install. ;)

I'm so eager to see some pics. If you don't post any real soon, I'm going to be very unhappy. ;) I can't wait to read the reviews from your recent purchase.
