The Eccentric Diva took the plunge and got cornrow braids over the weekend. I really wanted to try something different and also give my own hair a break. Originally I wanted really long cornrows braided to the back but I decided to go with a "braided ponytail" as the stylist called it. After 2 torturous hours, the job was complete. I'm pretty sure that woman grabbed the hair out of my ass and braided that in with the cornrows too, she left no strand free. Although I felt like my worst enemy attached a vice grip to my head and turned the crank at will, the finished product was gorgeous. The first night was rough, I could barely lay on the pillow. It even hurt to raise my eyebrows. I had to get my Meagan Good on and draw "permanently surprised" eyebrows just to look halfway cheerful. The second day was not as bad as the first but it still was painful nonetheless. I am in day four and this crap still hurts. Now I'm getting little bumps in the back of my head. I must say that I am enjoying the extra sleep in the morning since I don't have to style my own hair. Would I do this again? Hell yeah, I'm a glutton for punishment...what can I say?
