About Danni


Hi All! I am Danni and I am a staff writer here at BHI. I am a Graphic Design major and a long time resident of Washington DC. I have been on a healthy hair journey for 3 1/2 years. Within those years , I have went through a relaxed hair journey, a natural hair journey in which I big chopped twice(2nd big chop occurred in November 2013) texturized and now I have big chopped a THIRD TIME! I am 100% natural and here to stay. I am super excited to share information that I learn along the way to those who are just as into healthy hair care as I am and wish everyone best wishes on their healthy hair journey!

    Never again! Did twice took 4 days at the time I had like 12 inches of hair super thick. The takedown was even worse took almost a week! Only pros was they last long time because I wore them 2 months and they last through washes…I washed normally once a week no issues and my hair grew fast in these but now with 16 inches of hair Lord no! Lol

    I’ve worn zillions on/off for years. Never lost any hair. I remove my own braids moisturizer and condition my scalp regularly. I only use 100% quality human hair.

    Wearing MBs right now in 2019 for length retention and learning from the pros like Naturally Marked who has managed to grow tailbone length using MBs in 3 yes! She gives fantastic advise on removing without breakage, hair maintenance l moisturising, DCung, DIY products and some; I absolutely love them. I can’t understand why people complain about how long it takes to take them out but yet they will wear the hell out if weaves, box braids etc and still have to sit down for hours to remove then? It’s a small price to pay for length retention if you can get weeks and months if not having to do your hair and it doesn’t turn out right, or over manipulation. At the same time, do what works for you and what makes you happy. I just feel they get a bad rap sometimes. I’ve noticed a few more natural hair MBers with tail and thigh bone length that I’m in awe! Tailbone length here I come!

      I’m currently in mini braids and love them heck I’m planning on taking them down and redoing my whole head over again. It’s all about having the patience to put them in and take them out.

    Nothing wrong with mini braids. My first time wearing them for two months and love it. The take down is very easy. After wearing them and washing once or twice. The braids loosen and gain volume over time. I could go for another month. I’m not sure yet tho. Learn to take them down properly by watching you tube videos
