Marley Braid Hair styled for another 3 days

This is part 2 of “Adding Marley Braid Hair to a Hopeless bun.”

Good afternoon Lovelies. So for the next few days after my last post with the Marley Braid hair I experimented a little further. I wanted a bun that wouldn’t put too much pressure on my edges, and I also wanted a style that appeared to be my natural hair in a sloppy/relaxed way. This first style literally got me compliments from everywhere. People really thought it was all mine (hehe). That night I braided my hair (with olive oil and CURLS moisturizer) and then released them in the morning. I had a pretty defined braid out but that wasn’t how I planned to rock my hair that day. I loosely gathered up each section with a scrunchie, and then finally wrapped the Marley Braid hair around my tiny bun. Here are some pics (sorry I had food in my mouth in one of them):




So that night I re-braided my hair around the edges of my head and did large twists in the center. The next day I had class early so I just put a hat over it and removed the braids/twists after my class. I was surprised at how defined my hair looked. I did a semi-flat twist and pinned it to the side of my head and added the Marley hair to my bun. Here are some pics:



The following day I did another braid out bun. I made a pompadour in the front to show off my definition and then added the Marley Braid hair to my bun. More pics:



So there you have it guys and gals. This is proof that Marley Braid hair can do wonders to a hopeless bun. I still have a lot more experimenting to do with this hair so I can’t wait.

P.S.- I am so sorry for the awkward shots and what not. This camera is not meant to take selfies it seems. I may need a new camera. Unfortunately it won’t be anytime soon but i’ll manage for now. Well, I hope you all enjoyed this post, because it literally took me three hours (having to convert the pics). Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful day and i’ll have a new post up on Friday. Peace!


Adding Marley Braid Hair to a Hopeless Bun

Apology: I am so sorry for my lack of posts this month. I haven’t been on here in a while so I have a lot of catching up to do. I missed you guys so much though. Unfortunately finals week basically took most of my time. Hopefully next time I’ll post a warning before I disappear for a month. Anyway, hope you’re having a wonderful morning! This is part 1 of 2.

So it’s the day after my whole “Anita Grant Rhassoul clay Cubes” wash day, and I begin un-braiding/twisting my hair. That morning I had already planned on doing a high bun, but since I hadn’t worn a braid out in over 6 months I feared that it wouldn’t last long throughout the day. However, my hair looked amazingly defined and felt nice and airy. Still, I was cautious, so I put it in a bun…a hopeless looking one, and went to my first class. Honestly, although I love how it looked from the front, I was still nervous about walking across campus with a bun that looked like it contained only 3 strands of hair in it. Oh well, I still made it through the day maintaining as much confidence as I could summon. It really wasn’t that bad though. Everything besides the size of my bun looked good. That night I re-twisted my hair with just water, Vatika oil, and castor oil (on my ends.) Here are some pics:

The next day I un-did my twists, put my hair in a bun, and did a large flat twist across the front of my head (after trial and error with two twists in the front). The day before I had remembered that I had Marley braid hair that I had only used once and forgotten about ever since. I took it out and frizzed it up a bit to make it look more natural, and wrapped it around my tiny bun. Here are some pics:

P.S.: Again I apologize for my absence this last month. Part two will be up on Wednesday. Have an awesome day!

Apology for no posts

Hello readers, I am so sorry for not posting any updates in about a week which is terrible. I had several tests in school this week and my finals are also coming up as well. This is still no excuse though because even when I did have time I just really didn’t feel like updating (making a blog post takes me over 2 hours). Anyways, there will be several new posts in the coming days which will be well worth the wait. Hope you’re having a great day and i’ll see you soon. 🙂
