Afros & Poetrees

Peace&Blessings, my name is Elizabeth, but I go by Eli (E-lie). 18, au natural, rebel with a cause, California made but NYC livin, peace believer, pescetarian, simply beautiful, fashion junkie still, writing is the only thing that feeds my soul. Logic has never been able to convince my heart, but I kinda like it that way. I'm an artist (and I'm sensitive about my shit), activist, feminist, and firm believer in the romantic movement. I'm an impulse buyer, ice cream fanatic, thrift shopper, cheese lover, carrot cake feign. Agh, and I love mild cheddar cheese cubes with granny smith apples and peanut butter! :) delicious much?? I really shouldn't be writing this right now, I have loads upon loads of homework. I'm a procrastinator and I'm kinda cool with that, all the best people are. This is me, and just me, e-elle-eye. Enjoy :)

Anonymous asked: What's your major in college?




To create this look, start by co-washing
you hair. You may like to try Jane Carter
Nutrient Replenishing Solution, or Afrigenix
Berrilicious Smoothie. If you have the
time, allow your hair to air dry, and apply
your favorite oil. If youโ€™re short on time,
proceed to blow dry.

1. Part your hair in 4 sections, and clip to

2. Use your comb to create a part that is
approximately one inch wide and one inch

3. If you donโ€™t want your parts to be
pronounced, donโ€™t spend too much time on
defining your parts.

4. Divide the parted section into two.

5. Separate a handful of the HAVANA
TWIST HAIR (tm), use 6 strips to achieve
the size pictured.

6. Fold the HAVANA TWIST HAIR (tm) in
half, and place it as pictured in picture
number 6.

7. Beginning on the side closest to your
hairline, twist the HAVANA TWIST HAIR
(tm) in with your own natural hair, clockwise.

8. Do the same with the other half.

9. Now, begin to cross the twisted
sections over each other in a
counter-clockwise direction.

10. Repeat this crossing over, down the
whole length of the twist.

11. Twist by crossing over, until you
reach the end of the twist.

Repeat this step throughout the remainder
of your head.

12.-13. Roll small squares of aluminum foil
into mini rod shapes.

14. Use the mini rods as you would a
flexirod, on the end of each twist.

15. Very carefully (and at your own
discretion, and risk) dip the ends of the
hair in very, very hot water. You may
want to have someone help you with this

16. Allow the hair to cool off completely
before gently removing the foil rods. Clip
any stray ends.
