Me on Monday:
I had rocked a braid out on Saturday (Kizazi clips). I left the bobby pins in when I went to bed, didn’t bother re-twisting or braiding since I knew we were gonna be bumming on Sunday. Slept the same way on Sunday night. Monday morn, I took the pins out and after showering (with shower cap) I barely spritz some leave-in, quickly flat twisted, then dressed and made myself up. Once almost ready, I undid them and fluffed out my hair. It definitely worked to stretch it out a bit but not enough to do many styles so I just let it be. Yeah twas a bit messy but I didn’t want a clean look.
Me yesterday (Tuesday):
|LOL it’s actually hilarious how stubborn ass my fro is. “You want me to what? Lay down? Umm no…not gonna happen”|
|LOVIN’ my neon pink shadow!|
My hair was itchy so I co-washed. I didn’t work out :S but did the wash anyways knowing I had to leave the house at 11. So I wrapped my towel to get as much water as poss, sprayed leave-in and butter and also some Garnier cream to attempt to protect my hair from the blow dryer. I let it be for almost an hour before drying. I blow dried sections at a time on cool and once dried I picked it out with the fro comb. It definitely didn’t come out as stretched and funky as I thought it would. I was hoping for something like this:
LMAO massive FAIL! Ah well, had to work with what my hair was giving me, plus me thinks I need more hair to start pulling this ish off. I can’t wait! Height wise it looks almost the same as a really good braid out. But this is my hair. Some thick and dense stuff. I liked the feel of it, it was spongey but not as soft as it looks when I braid out. So I know now I won’t be doing many blow outs. This is only the second or third one I’ve done since I went natural and I think the best way to stretch is twisting or braiding. But it’s cool for a different look. And it will look MASSIVE in a year’s time. Awesome.
This was before styling.
I hadn’t braided or twisted last night, just slept in the pins, woke up this morn and lightly fluffed it out with a bit of lemon butter so I can drop Kev off at work. But I’m not feelin this look so will come back in a bit for the after styling pics.
|Yes, I was feeling myself.|
