KINKI ME PRETTY


      'it's consoling to know that God is in control of every part of our journey to glory, even over the steep mountains.     Thelma Welis

*WARNING---THIS IS A LONG POST*
How are you all doing? I am sorry for going MIA on you guys,  guess sometimes  life gets  in the way of blogging. From the title i am guessing you know what this post is all about, yes it is about my kinki braids. I would admit that this is the longest  hair do i have ever had on, its over 2months now  and i actually kept it this long because i am trying to transition for my natural hair but now, I am contemplating on not going natural again...fear dey catch me lol. I am scared i might start to cry after i do and probably get frustrated and wear wigs till my hair grows back. I am so indecisive. If you natural and you had this kind of fears too kindly comment below advising me on what you did to conquer your fears.
Okay so moving on to today's post, people keep asking me who packs my hair for me and how i do it and all that, I have explained to countless people so to save myself the stress i told a few people that i would do a post showing some ways i pack my kinki. I hope this helps, I can not make a video so i will try to explain as much as i can.
Product- supreme kinki
packs used- 3 packs
length- using my taperule, 14inches

My hair down


i poured my hair forward

i start to plait my hair forward, i try to make sure it is in the center



you will plait your hair  like so.
you then take the plaited braids to the side like you can see in the picture.

This is what it looks like when you are done.

This what i looked like fully dressed.





 Another packing style:
i loosened the plaited braids a little 

after loosening some parts, i just laid the braids on top each other and i tucked it all in.
I guess this picture explains it all.                       
Another Packing Style: this is explanatory, you just do a high bun in the middle and twist some of the braids round, if you don't like this style feel free to  pack everything high bun.




These are the only pictures i could put up, thanks to my internet but from these styles you can come up with alot of your own unique styles. For instance you could plait your hair forward or backward to the middle and you tuck it in and you do a style with the rest of the braids in front. Let me try to upload a picture.

i plaited this backward and twisted the front part.


This one i plaited it forward

i left some in front and i just laid it on the  plaited braids.






i twisted the front, packed the middle and left the back like we made our hair in secondary school.


This is the one i plaited forward.

 I hope i was able to help a little. Kindly drop your comments below, if you know better styles also let me know if this helped.

Thanks for stopping by......

Cheers.
