Protective Style: Crochet Braid – 1 Week In

I love the hairstyle and look of the braids, but the feel is tooooo much for my poor sensitive scalp/tender head. My braider did the cornrows extremely loose because I, of course, told her about my scalp/sensitivity.

Despite her finest attempts, however, my head is in revolt. In a blog post I drafted a while ago, I told myself to remember that adding extensions to my hair has never gone well.  Wigs yes, but connecting hair/extensions, no!

I tried massaging and oiling my scalp to no avail throughout the week.  I tried rinsing/moisturizing my hair.  It is one week in and my scalp is screaming at me.

Ah, c’est la vie.  Now I’m on the look out for a good wig for my large head. Lol. Wish me luck and all input/advice are encouraged and definitely wanted!!!
