'Gray hair is Gods graffiti'.- Bill Cosby
So am back in hot Windhoek and my hair was not understanding. It was a hot fussy matted mess. I opted to deep condition it and have it braided for a few weeks. Below are pictures.

Thick and full
Arm pit length
This is what I used to deep condition my hair.
Dark and Lovely - Ultra Cholesterol, Conditioning mask.
Then I co-washed with this - Organics, conditioner for dry damaged hair with Shea Butter.
Then I had my hair did.
This style is called a fishtail pushback. I first had the ends cut and trimmed before the braiding began.

The beautiful pattern
All in all, I am very happy with my protective style. I will keep this in until December 20 and do a natural hairstyle for my sisters wedding before I embark on a 6 month protective hair challenge.
This style is fantastic for this hot 35 degree weather Windhoek is having. My scalp can breath, my ends are protected and I spritz my hair and scalp with a mixture of water, glycerin, coconut oil and almond oil.
Yay for happy healthy protected hair.
Peace, Love and Fishtail braids
