You’re Better Than This (2)

“Beauty Is Pain”

Getting weave installed is such a pain in the butt. It takes forever, the stylist usually attempts to braid hair that hasn’t even emerged from the scalp yet and I bet you’ll get pricked with a needle at least once. Then there’s the other popular alternative, GLUE. That charcoal colored glue is nothing but the devil himself coming to take your edges back to hell. But, as my mother use to say when I was still getting relaxers “Beauty is pain.”

Sidenote: I realized that’s actually a really horrible thing to say now that I’m all natural and semi-woke and what not. ( Semi-woke= Not about that Hotep life)



Today, I discovered a video that had me shocked. I can not believe weave has come this far and I will not keep this video to myself. I’m not sure if this is brand new or if I’m the last to hear about it but there’s currently  a better way to have extensions installed. I’m talking no glue, no thread, no clips to snatch you roots out and edges off. Ladies, I think you’ll really appreciate this one.
