It took about 7 hours total to finish my hair, the wrapping was a crazy tedious process, which I don't believe I'd be able to go through again any time soon. The end product was completely amazing , nonetheless. Being able to have some lengthy hair laying over my shoulder's felt good. That is, until it was my run day. . . I've recently gotten into running regularly (which is completely amazing for me because I am far from being a runner) I am so proud of myself for it. However, figuring out how to style my hair for my run was a pain, finally I got it to stay up in a ponytail. The ponytail felt like it weighed at least 10lbs. My poor neck, that was the hardest run ever and guess what. . . these little faux locs were out within 4 8hours later.
I tell you, I am uber excited that I am finally getting into running and I will let nothing hold me back from it, not even that super fabulous hair style. We may meet again in the future. . .
- When installing this style, keep in mind the weight of them. Make sure you grab sections around your hair line that are large enough to hold the wrap. This isn't the style to stress getting the braid exactly on your scalp, that will definitely cause you some discomfort.
- Be sure to moisturize your natural hair really well. Use a moisturizer and lock it in with an oil.
