just the other day Beads Braids & Beyond asked about colored beads. for some reason i just can't bring myself to do it. but... i finally broke the mold and i did it! they look really great. and you know what the fun thing is? they glow in the dark =) the first part is cornrowed and the back is in rope twist with beads on the ends. i tried a new product this time and i'm loving it. her hair smells sooooo good and it's not just the flash making her hair look so silky, it really looks like that. even this morning after she slept on it. i also did another thing different this time. i used to always braid her hair when it was dry and detangled. i've noticed the last couple times i braided her hair that it was getting tangled way to easily. maybe because of how long it is now? who knows. i sprayed each section of hair as i was working with it so it was damp and it worked like a charm. there were less flyaways and no tangles at the ends. i think from now on that's what i'll do.
as you can see, she had a bead on the bottom braid on each side. i had intended to put beads on each braid like that but i had to test it out first. she bangs her head to help her go to sleep and i figured it wouldn't work out. a few minutes after she went to bed she called me in her room to tell me her hair was hurting. oh well, you win some you loose some!
this is totally unrelated but i had to share because we are excited. A wrote her first A! she's not very cooperative when it comes to writing or counting or anything when i try to show her. she took a break from getting her hair done and went over to the easel and wrote an uppercase letter. she's a really smart girl, she just doesn't like to show me lol. the pic is so blurry because i was so excited. you can tell by her mouth that she's saying "A!!!!"
