That's a Lotta...Hair?

This would be my daughter after I gave up two days of my life braiding yarn into her hair. I heard rave reviews about yarn extensions. I heard bad reviews. I thought she would *love* to have long hair for a while. That won me over. We visited the variety store and bought some funky yarn. That may have been a bad choice, since funky yarn produces funky lock-like braids.

She loves her yarn-ey head. The endless braiding was traumatic enough to keep us from doing this on a regular basis. The payoff has come in seeing her flip her 'locks' around throughout the day AND the daily hair regime is on hold. We moisturize and that's it.

Just for fun, here are the pictures chronicling the experience. I watched a video on Youtube to get instructions, but it was really pretty easy.

Cute!!! You know you can pay someone to do it...but it involves sitting for hours...so probably best to spread it over a couple days. Please let her know I think she looks lovely. Of course, she looks lovely with her usual "do" too. Yarn sure beats sticking a towel on your head for "long" hair like I used to do when I was little. My sisters and I would run around the house pretending towels were our long hair...ah...youth...
