Time for the Take Down

This picture says it all and I'm feeling old boys pain...I HATE taking braids out, but the time has come and my braids MUST come out!! Last night when I was driving home a random twist fell onto the steering wheel...LMAO Since my original plan was to wear protective styles from November through April, I'm going to have to alter things a bit. My plan now is to just twist my hair myself and wear twist off and on through the end of April before I unleash my FRO in all its glory for the summer ;)

Pondering the Take Down

Oh how I love the ease of protective styles and braids. A bag of synthetic hair can be a girls best friend when she is NOT in the mood to do her hair for long stretches, but I am officially tired of these Senegalese twist in my hair, and just to damn lazy to take them out..LMAO

My Winter hair challenge comes to an end officially April 30, but I'm not sure if I will make it that long. Trust me I am to damn lazy to take these bad boys out but the real reason for perhaps only making it to April 1 is because I am not sure the style itself will hold up much longer. Due to sheer laziness I will leave them in as long as I can but I am sick of "the look."

I guess I could take them out and put cornrows or something in for the last 30 days but like I said I do not have the mindset to take these out and the next few weekends will be busy one. Ho Hum.

To Tango With the Tangle Teezer??

Do I dare jump on the bandwagon of the newest craze amongst the natural hair community?!?!? Never mind I told myself that I am on product ban for 2011, but do I take the plunge and tango with the infamous tangle teezer???

Do I already have tools to detangle my hair? YES
Am I on a no buy in 2011 ban that includes anything NOT need? YES
Do I need a tangle teezer? NO
DO I have unusual "problems" with my current detangling method? NO

If I look at all of the question I have just asked and answered for myself the answer would be...NOOOOOOOOO I do no need a tangle teezer! It is product junkie lust that has me clamouring to get my hands on one of these babies. Truth be told most of the reviews on the tangle teezer are fabulous but the bad reviews seem to suggest that the tool may result in splits ends for some that use it. For now I'm sticking to my guns and not buying the tool for myself, plus the risk of shredding my ends is not one I'm willing to risk, when I can stick with the trusty shred proof tools I have in my shower.

But I must say, they have introduced a tangle teezer just for the little ones and it is CUTE, its got my daughters name written all over it. Check this out. Her birthday is coming up and I may get one for her. She has 3a hair type so the shredding of ends that could occur on my 4a/b hair is not very likely, and who knows I could always give her tangle teezer a try if I'm still jonesing to give it a twirl.
