Janelle Monae Inspired (Pics Galore)

I think this is the most excited I have been about a post in a while. I'm currently 9 weeks post. AAHHH I'm so excited. My goal for this stretch was 10 weeks and I'm almost there. I can't express how excited I am about this length check. But on to other news. With this stretch I really wanted to try more hairstyles so I did my first revamped two strand twist/bantu knot combo. I was kind of apprehensive about how it was going to come out but I was in love with the results. In this picture------> lol I thought I was ON!!! YOu could not tell me anything, my hair was popping, my outfit was cute, too geeked. With this style all I did was do two big twists in the back and two on the sides with a big pompadour in the front. LOVE THIS STYLE!!!

This is just my twist out with a little hump in the front.

This pic is kind of unrelated but I just liked this style as well. Its a revamped hump with a bun in the back.

Update!! Update!!

Soo this post will just be updating you on what's been going on in this head of mine. Tomorrow will make me 8 weeks post. On my last stretch I would have been relaxing tomorrow, BUT I'm giving it 2 more weeks. With this stretch, I haven't really run into many problems. I've been finding different ways to style my hair. (Not really, I'll just snazz up a regular bun) This brings me into my next topic. MY EASTER HAIR!! Recently I uploaded a post about my flexi-rods after a wash day. My curls came out really nice and I thought I'd do that again for Easter. FAIL!! I first had to move my whole wash day process to my boyfriend's house. FAIL #2!! The wash went fine considering the big move, my hair was feeling good, the rods went in smoothly, the whole nine yards. UNTIL THE END!!! My failure is partly from starting my wash at like 12 that night and only sitting under the dryer for 20 minutes. I woke up the next morning having to be at church super early with WET hair. I tried my best to blow dry the wet spots, but this only made my hair a frizzy mess. So I just slapped on a headband and went about my business.
That's me and my lil sis. My hair wasn't a hot mess but it was pretty close.
