Yes, but I don’t want to take them down, lol.


I want some now. I want to fig­ure out how to put them in.


I love that girl’s blog! My hair locks up after a few days in 2 strand twists so I’m para­noid that I’ll nev­er be able to get the yarn out!

My hair doesn’t lock up, but I’m afraid of the same thing! They are gor­geous, I love the look. But, I feel like they would rob my hair of mois­ture, despite my best efforts to pre­vent it and that they would be a night­mare to remove, result­ing in dam­age from the take­down. How­ev­er, you girls who rock them look awe­some!!
