Okay so it never fails I always go into some kind of braids in the fall/winter months. Typically I reserve my box braids for summer, but I put crochets in this past summer and thought I would switch it up. I'm not a big trend watcher anyway. I wear what I want, when I want and for different reasons! This time I desperately needed to give me and my hair a break. I've been super busy and I was starting to lose patience with my hair. Yes it happens to me! And when that happens I put my hair away before I do something crazy like damage it or cut it off! So, I made a quick decision to save me and my hair, and in these box braids went!(I couldn't muster up any strength to try installing these, I had someone else do them. Liz @ Calizbeauty Salon in Plano, Tx..I'm loving the color!) I absolutely love my natural hair but I don't always love how much work goes into caring for it, nor do I always have the time! I thank God for other options.

1 week old, barely pulled back

I would love to keep these in for 2 months, but we shall see! The length and thickness of these braids have been a bit cumbersome getting use to. I am such a practical person, if hair is slowing me down or getting in my way it has to go! Comfort over cuteness will always win out with me. But, I am trying to get use to them. Maybe I will make it a month! Every little bit helps I am going to enjoy my break for as long as I can. And as always I know when this is over I will be back in love with "the Process'' of managing my lovely thick, dense, kinky curly cottony hair!

So what are you guys doing with your hair right now? Will you be protecting it from the cold weather or yourself? Either way works! lol.
