Clip ins saved the day! Rocking 18 just one for the gram This is what was hiding beneath the scarf! Gotcha!!

Ladies yaass this is to let you know how versatile clipins can be. I was having a bad hair day; well I had my hair in braids because I had just washed it and wanted to dry it overnight in briads. Buuutt life happens, and I had somewhere to be but I wasn’t ready to take out my braids (they were far from dry) and so I was like hey! let me whip out my clip ins and put on a scarf, hopefully no one will try and pull it off. SO that is how I rocked my hair on Saturday night. I am wearing 18” Chocolate Straight Clip In Extensions curled with bendy rollers. For kicks, I have included a photo of what my hair looked like under that scarf! ho ho ho! 

If you want you some clip in extensions, whatsapp 0268934066 or email makeupbysharms@gmail.com or check out makeupbysharms.com/clipinsbysharms

Today's look - 3 day old braid out

Thank the lordt for snap chat filters :D

On a more important note, I just wanted to show you all what a braidout looks like on relaxed hair! Yes. I am in month 3 of my relaxer cycle (I have to relax my hair at the end of the month) and so I have some undergrowth so my usual drying in a bun with no heat didn’t work this weekend. 

So I decided to try out a braid out, I was a little skeptical myself but I just went ahead anyway. 

So the details

1. I did this braid out on freshly washed hair

2. I put in my leave in conditioner & my moisturizer (all the details are in this video here)

3. I did 10 braids in 3 sections ( one section in front, 2 at the back)

4. I left them in overnight

5. I had to go out during the drying period and so this is how I did it 

6. I used my Eco Styler Gel on my edges 

Simple!! 

If you actually want to see a video of me doing the braids and taking em out, please comment below or send me a msg in my ask box, I don’t bite :D

Tell us about yourself

What do you do for a living?
What do I do for a living? Hmm…how I wish I could sum it up in one word.  Most people can say lawyer, accountant, artist etc… I have to take a deep breath before I launch into my explanation. Here goes…I work at the Kokrobitey Institute. It is an NGO centered around, education, art and recycling. Want to see the coolest recycled bags? Come visit the Institute (Our website is currently being re-vamped.) *No, we are not like Trashy Bags…and we love for people to order in bulk* We also create educational resources and games out of recycled materials. Okay, I just shamelessly advertised the company. I hope Sharms does not charge me for this.
Are you relaxed or natural?
I am a naturalista (I have learned to embrace that word.) I decided to go natural 2 years ago (April 2012) and braved the big chop in November that year. My permed hair was not doing so well #PermedHairAbr3  I was quite nervous about the decision, because for as long as I can remember, I have had permed hair (Nanny, kinda sorta put some cream in my hair when I was a toddler. I would scream when it was time to get my hair done, so I guess it was either the creamy stuff or rock the bald look. My mama was upset about her making such a decision when she was at work, but I think she was secretly grateful that the hair had been tamed lol.) Honestly, I prayed. Yes, I prayed that the hair will turn out well, and that I would not regret the decision. Gloray. #HeIsFaithful

What do I love about your hair?
I love how thick it is, and it doesn’t seem to be enemies with humidity. Though it does shrink, the shrinkage is not terrible. One thing that bothers me slightly, my hair drinks, gobbles up moisture and oil.

Whats your favourite protective hairstyle/your hair regimen?
Ideal protective style of all time = big braids. In the year, hair is wild and free for about 2-3months, then braids for the next 2months…repeat cycle. If don’t have braids on, one protective style I like to do is, two big cane rolls in front, with a side bun. I usually keep this hairstyle for about a week, sometimes 2 weeks (don’t touch it, don’t think about it. Scarf at night.) When its out, I braid it in 4 plaits before sleeping.

What’s your favourite makeup/hair product?
Favourite make-up product is bareMinerals. For hair products, I will say SheaMoisture. Nothing can replace Shea butter, coconut oil and water though. Also  love the concoctions Debbie Yeboah makes for me, sealed in with Moringa oil made by Kwami Williams. Watch out for their products.
Any special tips/tricks for us?
Advice: Try not to handle the hair too much. Avoid combs if you can. Detangle with hands. Big braids do wonders. Personally, I think that blow drying the hair at least once every two months keeps the bad tangles away (I know some naturalistas are anti-heat, but using it wisely helps.)
