Schooling and Natural hair care Wahala(troubles)!!!!

I recently enrolled in a post graduate school and its been really hectic!!! balancing school work and thinking about hair has been HARD.

 Here's what i decided to do 
Make simple protective/low manipulative styles that would take very little time to install, take down  maintain and would last for at least 2 weeks.
Jumbo Twist For the first two weeks of school i wore big or jumbo two strand twist here's how it did.
Time to install: it took roughly two 2 hrs not so bad considering i have done kinky twist that took almost 12 hrs to install (Not kidding guys).
Maintenance: Moisturizing hair and scalp with either water or a mixture of aloe-Vera juice and water and sealing ends with Shea butter was no biggie, but getting the twist to stop shrinking was a problem cause my hair is neck length at the back and a little past chin length at the sides. (Nights and Nights of bobby pinning).
Take down:Take down was pretty quick about 30 minutes but detangling !!!! was so great a hassle proba…

Bun with Kinky hair Extensions (Marley hair)

So!!!!! i just got my hair out of kinky twists (kinky twist update coming soon), and i had a graduation ceremony to attend by the weekend.Against my better judgement to hang on to my kinky twist for a while longer, i gave in to taking them out because i missed my hair terribly.

Now i was reunited with my kinks but.......clueless on what to do with my hair, it sure can be stressful thinking of what style to wear especially when there's an event coming up (don't want to wind up looking like a hot mess cause my kinks are very unpredictable)

The hair style that won the style search was " Bun with kinky hair Extensions (Marley hair)".

Here's what i came up with by the wee hours of the night.






I liked the way the the extension blended with my hair, below is a picture of my hair with out the extension, Please excuse the sickly looking scrunchy, i actually used rubber  threads to hold the hair at the center, not so sure it qualifies to be called a pony tail though...
