Inspired by needled and hair-braiding youtube post I have twice this week found my hair in this do.
Firstly on Thursday when it was so dirty that even just plaits wouldn't cover the mess. Then today when I got the plait round the right way - plaiting it up instead of down. It is now just long enough to meet at the top. I am finding the bobby pins not up to standard so went off this afternoon in search of better ones.
