Wearing #wig#units is a great #ProtectiveStyle alternative.
#ProtectiveStyles should start with a hydrated base to prevent breakage and tangling from dryness so I make sure that each and every braid is detangled and moisturized.
Three ways to guarantee to have extra shedding and breakage from protective styles 😳:
1. Wearing them too long (no style should be worn in excess of 2-3months w/o proper care to your own hair). 2. Too much tension (excessive pulling of the hair strands WILL cause breakage and #hairloss that can become permanent).
3. Lack of Hydration (dry hair is fragile and can break easily. Dry hair also tangles easily). If you don't hydrate the hair BEFORE these types of styles and the braids become dry and tangled: recipe for a nightmare when you're trying to remove the braids🙆🏽! 🚨Be careful what products you hydrate with! 🚨 Hydration is INTERNAL (absorbed) meaning: some of the heavy oils and petroleum based products COAT/SEAL the hair vs moisturizing. Shiny, dry hair does NOT mean moisturized hair.
One of the greatest responses I get from my guests once they've taken down their braids is how easy they were to remove and how soft the hair still felt with less shedding! I literally have #HairBoos who come just to get their hair #braided down so they can rock their #frontal and #360units ...whether they sew them on or pop them on and off.
Added bonus: my #braids don't hurt! The #stitching looks neat and tight but ask around 😍all that extra tension isn't necessary.
If you have a lot of hair and didn't think you could rock #wigs or a #Sewin because of your massive amounts of hair....the proof is in the pics.
I’ve just completed embroidering this little woolly woman and now I’m wondering what to do with her. Any ideas are most welcome. I’m thinking of making a tool roll for my knitting needles and a special bag for my knitting. Perhaps she could go on the tool roll? I’d love to know, what do you keep your projects and tools in? 🍂🍄👜 also, berry picking pouch is now loose threads pouch 🤷🏻♀️ #craftersneedpouches
Coming this #WinterIntersession : Stitching from the Photograph with @joettamaue. In this class, you will learn to use basic stitches to create a detailed embroidered drawing from an original photograph. Beginning with a photograph of your own, we will learn to transcribe the photo as a drawing onto fabric using a variety of techniques, then we will choose the best lines and approaches to turn the photograph into a drawing and bring the image alive with embroidery stitches. We will explore traditional and experimental stitches as forms of mark making. Experienced or new embroiderers welcome. January 5 & 6, 10am-5pm @massartboston #stitching#embroidery#fibers#massart#onlyatmassart
