Lets talk about bobby pins, a.k.a hair grips. Am I the only one who finds them uncomfortable?
I watch a lot of YouTube videos where fellow naturals give tutorials on how to style natural hair. Most of the hairstyles I see require the use of bobby pins…a lot of bobby pins.
This morning, I was inspired by a certain YouTuber and decided to try out a hairstyle. I used about a million bobby pins (exaggeration but it felt like a million) to put my hair in an updo. The hairstyle looked nothing like the style I was trying to recreate but I went to work with it. I was so uncomfortable and felt every single pin in my hair. This happens every time I use bobby pins. Necessary evil? Definitely!
One question: am I wearing the pins the right way? My scalp has never EVER liked bobby pins.
I must either learn the right way to use bobby pins or learn to live with it because I absolutely love updos.
Hey World, any advice for me?
