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!
