Kinky Pick & Drop Hairloss

Hi Everyone!

Some time ago I blogged an article about how protective hairstyles can sometimes be the cause of hairloss. The irony huh? You can find that article here.

I tried a protective hairstyle and the result when I took the braids out was not pleasant – though it could’ve been a lot worse. Thank God I have thick hair.

Before the damage: The Kinky Pick & Drop

Front length

No point crying over lost hair and all that. I will just wait another year or two for it to grow back in fully *rolls eyes* *wink* but I just thought I’d share this because it really just reinforced the point I was illustrating in my other article. Don’t be scared! Just be aware.

Below is a vlog I did while my hair was still in the braids. YouTube user ‘peepla7’ left me a comment saying that you can get afro hair termed ‘Marley hair’ in USA. I will have a look into that and let you know! Or let me know if you find out first :)
