Here I am rocking a knitted cap with half of my twist out exposed.
I wore this look when I was running errands because my twist out did not come out exactly as expected.
Take that potential bad hair day!
I found this interesting post on a heat free method to trim your split ends by braiding your hair in small sections. I found this information very useful for those on a budget or frequent travelers. Hope this helps!
Also here is a nice split end chart:
Twist out again . I will attach the video of my hair idol in my next blog (for some reason every product she uses on her hair works on mine ).
I recently did my first mohawk . I used Shea Moisture products of course to do this . First, I twisted my bangs then untwisted it a couple hours later. I pulled the rest of my hair into a mohawk by pinning the sides and that was it! Next time I will twist my whole head for more definition. Hope you like!
In Dallas, we have an annual ball that is hosted by the Dallas Margarita Society and it benefit’s the Dallas Children’s Charities.
For this event I decided to do a semi-slicked back updo.
First I blow dried and lightly straightened my hair so I could pull it into to a ponytail.
After pulling it into a ponytail, I decided to add hair for a fuller bun.
To achieve this look, I purchased a bag of hair tracks and bobby pinned one end into my ponytail.
After that initial pinning, I continued to wrap the hair track around my bun and pin every other pass around.
Here is the finished product which I liked, but probably won’t do again because of how long it took to straighten my hair.
If you have been natural for a little over a year and you want a quick to go hairstyle without using GEL than this is for you. For this style I simply spritz my hair focusing more on my edges with a leave in conditioner and water. Then I finger-comb my hair (using castor oil) focusing more on my edges. I try not to use brushes a lot because my edges are really sensitive. Last, I pull my hair back into a mini mini puff. It is not one of the cutest style but it works for me when I am on the go.
Side note: I have been using castor oil as a substitute for gel because I hate the way my hair feels with gel.
Hope you like!
