I haven’t done a hair update in a minute and it’s growing like wildfire.
Still don’t plan on cutting it, but I would love a color. The only thing is that I’m afraid the dryness will break it again and I wouldn’t want that.
My next Protective Style: Kinky Twists
I don’t know when, or even where I will get it done, but it’s on the to do list. Sticking to my 2012 goal of protective styling. In the meantime, I’m seeking new ways to style my hair. If you don’t know by now, I get bored EASILY with my hair. I gotta switch it up…head wraps, turbans or whatever. I need options and versatility!
In the style above, I did a side part, pulled back, and clipped a large chunk of it with a flat clip. Then I flat twisted the front, going down the side, close to the hair line, starting from the part. At the end of the flat twist, I secured it with a bobby pin. And I let the rest fly!
Product I used: Cantu Shea Butter Coconut Curling Cream
The Verdict: LOVE IT!
Price: $5.99 (or something like that) @ Walmart
How I Use It:
I wet my hair in the shower, blot it with a towel to get out excess water. Then I apply it throughout my hair.
The only thing is that it leaves behind a white residue, at first, eventually it disappears. But I noticed a little goes a long way. You don’t have to use a lot…I’m kinda heavy handed with product though 😛
It defines my curls and I can feel the moisture in my hair at the end of the day and it’s soft with a little hold.
I like to add coconut oil for added moisture, especially if I’m going to wear a head wrap for the day.
