Crochet Twist Life
How have you all been, ladies and gentlemen?
So I thought a good old catch-up on life and HAIR was in order. First bombshell:
I moved to Cardiff!
Yep, I'm still reeling in shock too! lol!
And I'm totally living the Crochet twist life!
I think once I get hands on the fluffy braid version ...it's ON! I'll be all up in here crocheting everything! I haven't even tried the twist-out version of this hair style!
So yes, I'm protective styling because I love this style so much and I get to keep an eye on my own hair and scalp!
The best part, I'm getting used to big hair!
I might start trying out braid-outs and twist-outs again on my own hair (stretched of course!).
So here's a video on the style I am loving and how Cardiff is treating me so far.
Have you tried out Crochet Twists? How did you find them?
I watched a fellow YouTuber, Borderhammer's video on being careful with the dreadlock version of this style: too heavy for fine natural hair types. I have been duly warned!
After the Marathon!
Hey ladies and gents!
I thought I'd catch you up on my Marathon day journey and what I've been up to since. And what better way than a good ole' chinwag via YouTube? lol!

Autumn Is Here | Loose Twists
It's almost winter and I'm inspired!
I have been on YouTube ogling (no other word for it really) the pretty heads of hair on MsTanish1 and AliciaJames for their loose twists.
I'll be honest, until I saw that MsTanish1's hair thrived with the style (Alicia your hair was so long to begin with - that I felt daunted!), I didn't think I could do it.
I watched MsTanish1's video: see below, and I was going to do it!
First, had to get my housing situation sorted though....yes, I'm moving AGAIN! Maybe I'm a NOMAD? Or just going back to University for a Masters degree....lol!
SO I'm moving to Cardiff and am a bit scared to be honest. It will likely be cold and damp but so is London.
Time to keep packing, move and keep an eye out for upcoming hair and health events on the weekends.
Yes and my book is out! Check out my YouTube update video in the following post: lol! It's available on www.8weekstolongerhair.com and is called, you guessed it, "8 Weeks to Longer Hair!"
See you soon, ladies and gents! Pray for me and my move! (Eeek!)
