After having her braids for five weeks, Andrea takes out all 162 braids out. Over the span of 3 days and a total of 25 hours the braids are finally out.
Important things to know: Hydrate your braids and scalp to avoid breakage of your hair, stimulate growth and overall health of your hair! Also if you are also taking out your braids it can be a tedious task so get some good music on or a Halloween movie(s) and make the long process more fun!
Now once your hair is out of your braids do not let your new hairstyle go to waste make Halloween costumes out of it! Andrea’s hair was as if it was crimped and she hose the perfect costume to go with her new hairstyle: a lioness! She made an exaggerated cat eye and even put in color contacts for the full effect.
Here are some fun facts about Halloween:
The first Jack-o-Lanterns were actually made out of turnips and beets instead of pumpkins! It is the second grossing holiday behind Christmas! Trick or Treating evolved from a Celtic tradition of leaving candy out on Samhain. From the Celtic holiday Samhain comes the term Samhainophobia which is the fear of Halloween!
If you see a spider on Halloween it is supposed to be a deceased loved one looking out for you. The pilgrims started the black cat superstition!
There are several names from Halloween: All Hallows Eve, Samhain, All Hallowtide, The Feast of the Dead, and The Day of the Dead!
The correct spelling of Halloween is actually Hallowe’en Halloween dates back to 2,ooo years ago The colors of halloween are orange and black because orange represents harvest and black represents death Cats are believed to protect witches powers For me Halloween is my favorite holiday!
You get to dress up as your favorite character and get free candy! The whole month of October is devoted to it, you have jack-o-lanterns out on everyone’s front porch, there are fake spiders and ghosts hanging on trees, and everyone is in the “spooky spirit”!!
I can understand why Halloween is more popular than Valentines day for this reason!
