*Flicks braids*

University of Manchester, July 2015

Deciding my hair for graduation was anything but a simple task.

At this point (July 2015) I had been transitioning to natural hair for about 6 months. Considering my hair was just reaching shoulder length, the transition was in full swing 6 months in. I knew for a fact that constantly straightening my leave-out for weave was bound to cause damage, so that’s an option I steered clear of. Although I had a 20″ Peruvian hair, middle-part weave with leave out just a few months later…Don’t ask. Those straggly straightened bits left the middle section of my hair limp and lifeless for quite a while afterwards,

In the end practicality was my main concern. Graduation was only a few days before backpacking through parts of Southeast Asia so I had to weigh up my options and decided I would rather spend the days leading up to my trip packing and running last minute errands rather that getting my braids done then.

As displayed in the picture above – I don’t regret my decision.
