3 Easy Head Wrap Buns | Tutorial

The weather on the East Coast USA still can't decide if it wants to stay cold or start to get warm.  My hair doesn't like cold air any more than my lungs do!  With that being said, head wraps of all styles have still been my go to protective style this month and probably will continue to be until the weather officially changes.

In the meantime, I'm dreaming of warmer weather (didn't I say the exact same thing in a previous post) and in my dreams I've already moved to the West Coast.  Yes, that is truly a goal I plan to achieve in the near future.  But, back on subject, head wraps are my favorite look right now and my hair has been enjoying the extra love and care she gets from being protected from the elements.  Here's the latest installment to my head wrap series.  I call it a series because the styles I come up with continue to change over time and I plan to keep sharing them with you all! 

What's the weather like where you live and are you enjoying the it?  Let me know in the comments below.  P.S. If it's summer, Miss Cherie Marie would love to pay a visit! =)

1 Year, 9 Months or 21 Months Loc Update

I can't believe my hair is almost two years old!  Time flies by so quickly when you just take your time and enjoy life.  My hair has grown with me as a person and I've enjoyed every minute of my journey thus far, including the good and bad moments and all in between.  If you're visiting my blog, after watching my latest YouTube video, thanks so much for checking out my blog!  I promised pictures of my hair between my last update at thirteen months, found here, and how my hair looks now.  Check out the pictures:

Until I post a series of pictures all together, I never really pay attention to how many pictures I take!  I just like to capture the moment, be it my hair, clothes or time spent with family and friends:  I take pictures of everything.  Nonetheless, I recapped everything I've been going through behind-the-camera with my hair in this video.  For those reading this on mobile or desktop, the video is located below as well.  

My hair is truly an extension of me; when I'm happy and at peace within, my hair tends to cooperate more than when I'm frustrated, stressed, or feeling under pressure.  In those moments, my hair won't even stay in once place while I sleep at night!  All in all, it feels amazing to remember all that I've experienced thus far, knowing that I started my locs on my own, maintained them, colored them, and have been able to retain length in the midst of my unavoidable and frustrating eczema flare-ups.  No one's loc journey is perfect, but it's our personal journey just the same.  Not a single journey is like the other, but we all grow and change through it all:  that's exactly what is the same.

Thanks for reading,
