Hello beautiful people!
Today is a beautiful day in Stockholm so I took my behind outside to take some pictures for you today and let you in on the info about my new protective hairstyle. For those who don't know a protective style is a style that does what it says - protects your afro hair. Afro hair is sensitive to EVERYTHING girl, so from time to time we need to do protective styles. I decided within two days (I'm always like that, I need to get things done quickly haha) that I wanted to try out twist with soft hair and I wanted it long, so I chose to use : Expression from dream girl bought at ebony store in Stockholm.
I bought 5 packages but used only two since I cut each package in half. We twisted the hair and then knotted the ends, put it in boiled water for the twist to stay in place and for a cleaner look. Now this style won't last me that long because I have really curly hair but it's a very gorgeous, lady like & romantic look.
The big plus about this hair is it keeps your hair a little more moisturized than the last kinky hair I used which in my experience was "dryer" but still hotness *grrr*.
The expression is also very light and it feels like almost like nothing on your head and easy to sleep with. I don't find it hard to take care of my baby with these long braids. I just put it up in a bun when I'm at home taking care of Azelia and style it how I want when I'm out and about.
To keep it fresher longer, I like to spray some aloe Vera juice to keep my own hair in shape/moisturized, then apply some gel to calm my Afro frizz and always wear my satin bonnet when at home. Wearing my hair down also puts less stress on my hair.
I love this look and I will be doing it again!
I also did a litte easter edition on my make up. For those who want to know what I'm wearing : The eyeshadows are from BH Cosmetics the 120 color eyeshadow palette 4th edition.
I went bold and used shimmery colors on the lid and crease: Purple, green & yellow. Around the brow I used only matte colors from Mac like swiss chocolate to transition. On my tearducts I used a white from the same 120 palette.
I also used my lovely eyelashes from Ardell that I hated in the beginning but now I've learned how to put them on to get the maximum effect I want. These lashes: 137 are only for the bold who want their eyelashes to pop through a heavy eye look like mine.
