This Saturday it rained most of the day and I couldn't go out and work in my gardens so I decided to wash and two strand twist my hair. I decided that I wouldn't wear my twists and go for a twist out for Sunday, Church hair.
|Just completed two strand twists.|
My older brother was driving into town and he and my hubby planned to work on his car. So, I had no plans to go out with these twists. Well, my brother was late so we all ended up going out to eat at the 50's Grill. This must be a sign that I'm more secure with myself now then I was when I was younger. I looked at my hubby and said "let me put on some earrings and some lipstick and I'll be ready to go". I went out to eat wearing my twists and got no strange looks or comments. Basically, no one cares and it gave me an opportunity to get over myself.
I left the twists in my hair all day long and slept in them over night. When I got up in the morning I used some of my jojoba rosemary oil on my finger tips to unravel the twists. I looked in the mirror and hated the results. I thought "this looks so much better on other people". I was up early with my son and my thought was that I could always wash it out and do a wash n go to church or I could pick it out and wear a head band and a fro. As I went throughout my morning of cooking breakfast and getting my son ready of church I would look in the mirror and play with my hair. While I was helping my son brush his teeth I started to rake my fingers through my hair and I started to like how it was beginning to look. Well, basically I played with my hair until I liked it. Yes, I know that it is a little frizzy, but you can still see the definition. I got dressed for church and wore my twist out. I didn't get any compliments, but my usually lady friends were not in church today.
I found it to be really difficult to take a picture of the back of my head. The hubby had greasy hands from working on my brother's car, so I had to figure it out. I finally got a decent shot that shows the texture of my hair and I really like how my hair turned out. I think that I need to do this again and play with different sized twists. Until next time... Blessings!
