Styling My Yarn Braids (faux locs)

Hello Beautiful People! This is a video of me styling my yarn braids (faux locs) Before the wrap around method came about this  hairstyle was considered the initial replica of locs. Both styles are absolute Great! I love this Look! I actually almost feel like I’ve been growing this hair out of my scalp for years! lol.

Before you get into the video hair are few tips!

– I wrapped my hair around two nikes boxes in a size 6.5. There are six strands per braid.These braids are about 20 inches long. I suggest you wrap until each roll of yarn is done then begin braiding.

-Make sure your hair is washed conditioned and moisturized! I used Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioner and 100% Virgin Cocoanut Oil.

-Make sure you have something to keep yourself occupied (music,movies,company etc.) because this hairstyle takes a long long loooonnng time to execute. It took me about two days to do this style with the help of my sister kadia (who actually appears in the video!).

– Because this hairstyle is made of yarn it has a tendancy to dry your hair out. I wouldn’t recommend you leave this style in for more than a month and a half. Make sure you mositurizze your hair often with hair oil. It helps tp out your hair oil in a spray bottle to get the oil around your scalp evenly.

– Be prepared to fall in love! Because I sure did!

Here’s a simple picture collage of one of the styles in the video.

The Steps are pretty simple:

1. Section off some hair in the middle of your face.

2. Gather the hair in do a 3 part (traditional) braid.

3. Take the braid you just completed, place your hand on the front of the braid and bring it to the back of your head with the other.

4 & 5. Grab the remaining braided strands from each side and use them to tie a knot in the back of your head. You’ll have to tie a regular knot about to times for security.

6. BE CUTE! 🙂

I Want To Make Love

As I approach the 4 year mark since the last time I’ve had sex and facing the decision that I plan to wait until I’m married to have sex again the constant question that recieve is ” Are you sure that it’s going to happen?” I’d usually respond with a slow head nod and some uncertainty saying ” Yes.. well I hope so.” Because I’ve abstained from sex for so long my perception of it varies in some aspects the idea of sex is so grand and in others it’s just not that important. When I think about marriage, sex plays such a small role in what I presume the agenda of my future husband would be. I don’t think someone would vow to spend the rest of their life with me just so we can have sex. I know that is not the best the most high God can do for me so I won’t even consider that to be any form of reasoning. But in terms of the grand scheme of being sexually active my ultimate goal is not to have sex it’s to Make Love:

I want to make love to a man that is infatuated with God. I want to make love a man the recognizes the God in me. I want to make love to a man that will never leave me in the dark. If I fall in love I want to make love to a man that is falling with me. I want to make love to a man that is vulnerable with me, a man that trusts me and I do him. I want to make love to a man that I am not afraid to follow. I trust his walk with God and I am willing to allow him to take the lead. I want to make love to the man that is the father of my children, we will raise them, educate and nurture them,together.IMG_1150-0

I want to make love to a man that understands that we are only physical representations of what is going on in the spiritual world. Our souls are centered, in alignment, and are becoming one. I want my rib. I want my soulmate. I want consistency. I want commitment. I want loyalty. I want forgiveness. I want acceptance. I want what God wants for me. Taking in consideration all these preferences sex and marriage are too things I am willing to wait for. 1. Because I know what I want. 2. Because I just don’t want to have sex I want to make Love. 3. Anything worth having is worth waiting for and 4. Because God’s timing is perfect timing. . .


I owe it to God, I owe it to myself and I owe it to my future husband. This journey is an interesting one but I’ve been blessed to reap the sewing of patience, self preservation, and discipline. It gives sacredness and value an entirely new meaning. I’m in too deep, I know too much, I’m willing to wait.
