Living on the edge and losing my edges


So lately I’ve been living on the edge and my edges are showing it. I’ve been way too busy to properly care for my hair and the methods that I was using to care for it were not the most ideal either.

I’ve been tucking my hair away under headscarves all winter and I was struggling to get my hair to retain enough moisture but the biggest mistake I made last week was stretching my hair using the banding method… It just pushed my already flaying hair over the edge. Eish πŸ™ˆ

In my frustration I decided to get a protective style so I got Marley twists.
But as I was researching best practice for installing Marley braids I ran across other natural hair topics and I’ve learnt (or rather re-learned) things about my hair. One, I have high porosity hair and two I have low density hair and I believe it’s genetic because despite the last month I’d been doing things mostly “right” so far since my BC. At first I was distraught a bit sad that this is my lot in life 😱 but thank goodness that there is actually hope to manage my porosity and density even though it means I have to baby my hair as long as I have it. In my next post I’ll talk more about how I’m managing my high porosity.

Oh well, such is life hey?

I’ll leave you with a pic of my new do, for more follow me on Instagram @princessofee πŸ˜‰

  1. Those poor edges 😦 A little extra love is all they need tho. I have come to accept that my hairline is just what it is *sigh* but I do try to take extra special care of them πŸ˜€
