A Mid-March Resolution
Braids: They’re practical. They’re low maintenance. They’re summery. They’re versatile. They’re beautiful works of art. They keep your hands out of your hair letting it do its thing and just GROW.
But the sad reality that I’m facing is that I can’t do them. Sure, a simple plait I can do just fine, but beyond that theres french braids, micro braids, cornrows, goddess braids, tree braids all of which I haven’t the faintest idea of how to do. And with my hair type, it’s recently come to my attention that I really should!
I mean, we’re talking the complete lack of a serious life skill! And right now, as I focus on growing my hair out and retaining its length, the ability to do protective styles such as braids so as to minimize manipulation of my strands is capital c CROOSH!
So, let it be known on this day, the 25th of March 2010, I HEREBY PLEDGE TO LEARN HOW TO CORNROW!
I wish I had come to this realization when I was younger and had still had a
posse of Barbies and dolls on which to practice. But I don’t. So I’m going to learn on me and it will be a challenge that I know will prove difficult because of that whole back-of-my-head-where-I-can’t-see issue. That said, I know so many people do it and there is no reason I cant.
Any videos, tips, tricks, words of encouragement you have would be greatly appreciated. Keep tuned for my updates as I take on the almighty CORNROW!!
