Hey everyone!! I have finally done my marley braids and the results are shown below. This is the first time I have ever done my braids myself so it took me quite a long time to do (approximately 12 hours). It took me a while to figure out how to attach the extension securely (I’m a perfectionist) but once I figured it out it didn’t take me long to learn how to twist the hair. I used 5 packs of “Soft ‘N’ Silky Afro Natural Synthetic Afro Twist Braid” hair. Each pack of hair cost £2.99 and they can easily be purchased from a local hair shop.
This is the first time I have ever done my hair by myself. I feel so proud of myself because now if someone asks who did your hair I can say I did it myself! It’s a new achievement to add to the list. It took me approximately 6 hours to do it in total but to be fair, I spent 4 hours sewing tracks together because I wanted to make the tracks thicker. The rest of the time was spent plaiting my hair while watching Dallas. I have watched one episode and now I’m hooked. I’m going to have a Dallas marathon tomorrow; can’t wait!!
