I have been falling in love lately. I have been getting addicted to tying my head with vitambaas. Yes. Head wrapping is for the win!! My current addiction and love. I had no idea it was as easy as ABC to just put one on the head and go!!
For the past few weeks I have been working from home and if I want to leave the house I will just wrap my head and go.
The good thing about tying scarfs is that you ‘hide’ from the embarrassing bad hair days. Honestly I have been feeling a little bit lazy when it comes to taking care of Miss Fro. I know I just removed my Nyasuba locks, but for some reason I ain’t feeling the fro. Working on that though. After the twist outs I achieved last week, I am definitely proud of that achievement.
It is time though to experiment with different things and why not use the different scarfs I have to achieve different looks for myself?
I have long scarfs that I am not currently using because Nairobi weather has decided to behave so instead of covering and protecting my neck, my hair gets that privilege.
Before I learnt how to tie the head scarf, I got one from Trendy B fashion house. Their head wraps come ready made, it is just for you to tie it on your head and go!! Well, we all learn things everyday, so I made it a lesson.
Having different coloured scarfs makes it even more fun to play around with. I currently only know one way of tying the scarf and I found that it works just fine for my head shape. Just play around with earrings too and I’m good to go.
Let me try as hard as I can to explain how I tie the scarfs…
So I put the scarf on my head, take the two ends, twist them together and then wrap it up on my head. Does that make sense? It is really very simple, because anyone can achieve the style.
Apart from hiding the bad hair days, scarfs are also used to protect the hair from the elements of the environment e.g wind, sun, dust, rain. If you decide to do your weekly deep conditioning and you want to leave the house, the scarf will be your best friend. ☺
I am yet to experiment with other ways of tying the scarf, but so far loving this way. It is easy, simple and elegant too.
